Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable botulinum toxin that relaxes the muscles that help you to smile, laugh, and frown. These injectables reduce the smile, laugh, and frown lines and soften the creases these muscles can cause. With Botox, the team at PrudentMD can help create your natural, younger-looking appearance without invasive procedures or a long recovery. The injections relax facial muscles responsible for making facial expressions and wrinkles associated with them.

What are the benefits of Botox?

Botox is a muscle-relaxing treatment that offers the following benefits:

  • Reduced frown, smile, and laugh lines
  • Diminished forehead lines and crow’s feet
  • Smoother, tighter skin
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Natural results
  • Reduced excessive sweating especially in palms, underarms, and soles of the feet with lasting results

Botox and other cosmetic injectables (like dermal fillers) are simple, fast, and painless procedures that provide dramatic anti-aging results.

Is Botox right for me?

To determine if you’re a candidate for Botox or other cosmetic treatments, your PrudentMD provider discusses your medical history and desired results with you. They examine the areas of your face or body that you’re concerned about and then tailor a treatment that matches your needs. Consultation is free.

What happens during Botox injections?

During Botox injections, you rest in a comfortable chair. Your specialist numbs the treatment area to reduce discomfort. They gently inject botulinum toxin into targeted areas of your face or body, which usually takes 10-15 minutes. For this reason, Botox makes an excellent lunchtime treatment.

What should I expect after my treatment?

There’s zero downtime with Botox injections at PrudentMD, so you get back to your routine immediately. You can expect temporary swelling or redness at the treatment site. Ice the affected areas of your skin to reduce swelling and avoid touching the treated skin.

Wrinkle reduction often appears several days up to 1-2 weeks after Botox treatment. It can last 4-6 months before you need repeat injections to maintain long-lasting results.

Your provider can combine Botox with PRP microneedling to improve your results, with several-week intervals between treatments. They personalized each aesthetic solution to give you the best results possible.
