Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable prescription medication made from a purified form of botulinum toxin A. This treatment is an effective way to temporarily treat deep-set wrinkles between the brows, along your forehead, and the crow’s feet that form around your eyes.

Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for wrinkles, allowing your skin to smooth out, and reducing their severity.

Why should I consider Botox?

The wrinkles that develop around your eyes and on your forehead are due to the repetitive muscle movements you make when you squint, frown, or laugh.

You also lose collagen, an essential protein for healthy skin, as you get older, and free radicals in your environment and from the sun can also cause premature aging in your skin.

Botox therapy might be an option for you if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your face because of wrinkles but aren’t ready for more invasive treatments like surgery. 

The Integrated Dermatology of Newton-Brighton team can also combine Botox injections with popular dermal fillers like Radiesse®, Belotero®, and Juvéderm® to address lower face wrinkles and areas where you’ve lost facial volume. They follow a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your overall cosmetic goals.

What can I expect during Botox treatments?

To achieve your desired results, Integrated Dermatology of Newton-Brighton customizes a treatment plan just for you. Your provider focuses on ensuring your results are long-lasting and look natural.

They inject small amounts of Botox into specific points around your eyes and across your forehead to target the muscles responsible for your lines and wrinkles.

In-office treatments can take as little as 10 minutes, and you can begin to see a noticeable difference in the severity of your wrinkles within 24 to 48 hours.

How long do the results of Botox last?

Botox helps relax your facial muscles and keeps your skin smooth for four months or longer.

As the results of your Botox treatment wear off, Integrated Dermatology of Newton-Brighton can provide maintenance doses to help you retain a more youthful appearance.
