Relax facial muscles and soften wrinkles

Botox is a popular, non-surgical cosmetic treatment derived from the botulinum toxin. It works by temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines, leading to a smoother, more youthful appearance. Commonly used on areas such as the forehead, crow's feet, and frown lines, Botox is an effective solution for those looking to reduce visible signs of aging. The procedure is quick, with minimal discomfort and no downtime required.

Botox treats:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow's feet (lines around the eyes)
  • Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
  • Bunny lines (on the nose)
  • Neck bands
  • Lip lines (smoker's lines)
  • Chin dimpling
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

How does Botox work?

Botox works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. It contains a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, which inhibits the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter responsible for muscle contractions. When acetylcholine is blocked, the targeted muscles relax, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. This temporary muscle paralysis typically lasts three to six months, after which the effects gradually wear off.

Before & After

How is Botox administered?

When you receive Botox at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine, a trained medical professional will begin by evaluating your specific needs and goals. They will mark the targeted areas on your face or body where the injections will be administered. The procedure involves using a fine needle to inject small amounts of Botox into the muscles beneath your skin. You may feel a slight pinch during the injection, but the process is generally quick and well-tolerated.

After the injections, you can typically return to your daily activities immediately, as there is no required downtime. You might experience minor redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these effects are temporary and usually resolve within a few hours. Your provider will give you specific aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results and comfort.

Botox aftercare guidelines:

  • Avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area
  • Refrain from lying down for at least 4 hours
  • Stay away from strenuous exercise for 24 hours
  • Keep your head elevated when resting
  • Apply a cold pack to reduce swelling if needed
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours
  • Follow any specific instructions from your provider
  • Use gentle skincare products on the treated area
  • Monitor the treated area for any unusual reactions
  • Contact your provider if you experience any concern

When will I see the results?

You can expect to see noticeable improvements within 3 to 5 days after your Botox treatment. The full effects typically develop within 1 to 2 weeks. These results will last for approximately 3 to 6 months, depending on individual factors. Regular treatments can help maintain your refreshed and youthful appearance.

Botox FAQs

How long does a Botox treatment take?

A typical Botox treatment session is quick, usually lasting about 10 to 15 minutes. The exact duration depends on the number of areas being treated.

Is Botox painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during Botox injections. The needles used are very fine, and the sensation is often described as a small pinch. If you’re concerned about pain, your provider can use a topical numbing cream to enhance comfort.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects of Botox are mild and temporary, including redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites. Rarely, some individuals may experience headaches, flu-like symptoms, or drooping of the eyelids. These side effects typically resolve on their own.

How often should I get Botox?

To maintain optimal results, Botox treatments are usually recommended every 3 to 6 months. Over time, with consistent treatments, you may find that you require fewer sessions as the muscles become trained to relax.
