How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that works by blocking the nerve signals that are required for facial muscles to contract. By reducing your muscle activity, Botox® helps to improve the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet lines, and forehead lines. 

What Areas Does Botox® Treat?

Botox® is commonly used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face including the forehead, eye area, and around the lips. 

Does Getting Botox® Hurt?

Botox® can cause some discomfort while you are receiving the injections but it is not considered a painful or invasive procedure. Once the injections are complete, most patients do not experience continued discomfort or pain.

How Long Will It Take To See Results?

Most people begin to notice results from Botox® injections within the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure is complete. Your full results may not be visible until about two weeks after the injections take place. 

How Long Will My Botox® Results Last?

Botox® provides results for about four months for most people. However, the length of the results can vary from person to person depending on how quickly or slowly your body metabolizes Botox®. After you’ve undergone Botox® injections more than once, you will learn what your normal results window is and will be able to make regular appointments to help maintain your results. 

Will Botox® Make My Face Look Frozen or Unnatural?

We’ve all seen an episode of a sitcom where a character receives Botox® injections and their face is frozen and they are unable to smile. And as funny as these episodes are, they are not indicative of real life. However, these Botox® episodes do usually have one thing in common — the mishap occurs when they go to a questionable facility and receive Botox® injections from someone who is less than qualified to be performing any type of medical procedure. 

When you go to a reputable wellness center like Rock Creek Wellness, our staff and doctors are all highly trained and certified to perform Botox® injections. The Botox® results that you will actually experience are subtle and natural-looking. After Botox®, you’ll simply look like yourself but with fewer lines and wrinkles. 

How Do I Decide If Botox® Is Right for Me?

Botox® is a safe and effective treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. If you suffer from crow’s feet, frown lines, or forehead lines, Botox® may be able to help reduce the appearance of these lines and wrinkles. 

If you are interested in receiving Botox®, the doctors and staff at Rock Creek Wellness in Leawood can help you decide if this cosmetic injectable is right for you. Your goals and medical history may have an impact on whether or not Botox® is your best choice for wrinkle and line appearance reduction.
