Does Botox Work Immediately?
Results can usually be seen within a few days after treatment for most patients. In spite of this, it is important to remember that every patient is different, and some have to wait a bit longer to see the effects of Botox.
In most cases, patients don’t need a touch-up even if they don’t see results right away. Your treatment should start working within two weeks, and you will be able to see your final results by then. The process simply takes a bit longer for some people, depending on the speed their body absorbs and reacts to the product, the depth of their wrinkles, and more.
How Long Does This Treatment Last?
Results from this treatment can last for up to six months. There are several factors that can affect the longevity of your treatment, including the severity of the wrinkles treated and the area you treated.
We will use our skills and experience to help you understand what you can expect for your unique needs as we work together. Having a better understanding of your goals will help us set you up for successful results.
Regular Treatments May Extend Results
In the future, you may be able to seek out less frequent treatments if you start with a regular schedule. This might seem counterintuitive, but once you understand how Botox works, it actually makes sense.
Since this injection relaxes the facial muscles, regular treatments can help them revert to their relaxed state and remain that way longer. With fewer contractions, wrinkles are less noticeable. As a result, your lines and wrinkles will be significantly softer, allowing the treatment to last longer.
What Can This Treatment Be Used For?
Dynamic wrinkles or lines are caused by facial expressions. The effects of aging and sun damage are primarily responsible for all types of static wrinkles. The injection may be a great choice if you have dynamic wrinkles you’d like to address. In addition to this treatment, we offer other treatments that are better for static wrinkles, such as dermal fillers.
Another commonly treated area is frown lines. Between your eyebrows, you can see vertical lines when you furrow your brow. Even when you are at rest, these lines can become permanent over time. These lines can make patients appear stern and serious. These lines can be relaxed to help open up and soften facial expressions, giving you a younger and more approachable look.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox?
There’s No Best Age for Treatment
In order to determine whether this is a good decision for you, we will discuss your health and needs. This treatment is generally a good fit for people of all ages.
Cosmetic injections may be sought by patients over 18 to delay the formation of wrinkles in key areas. Dynamic wrinkles are often treated by patients who wish to feel more confident and youthful.
Men Are Good Candidates, Too
This treatment is popular among men and women alike because it reduces wrinkle appearances and helps people feel more comfortable in their skin. Some people believe cosmetic treatments are just for women. It’s simply not true, and our team is more than happy to assist our patients of any gender.
Can This Treatment Be Combined With Other Treatments?
This injection is versatile because it can be used in conjunction with other treatments. In some cases, Botox and dermal fillers can be combined as a “liquid facelift.” Many of the same benefits as a facelift are available without the risks or costs associated with surgery.
The procedure helps reduce both dynamic and static wrinkles simultaneously while restoring a youthful volume and texture to the face, as well as smoothing your features.
There are even fillers that stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. Lack of collagen is a leading cause of aging skin. Collagen production starts to decrease as soon as we leave our early twenties behind. When you fall behind on collagen production, the signs of aging show up on your skin more clearly. Collagen is one of the natural ingredients your skin needs to rebuild and regenerate itself.
Good Candidates for Dermal Fillers
You might be a good candidate for dermal fillers if you’re over 18 and notice a loss of facial volume with age. Volume concerns associated with aging include hollows in the face and a loss of definition. As long as your skin is generally healthy, you can use dermal fillers on any skin type and tone.
