Botox Q & A

What is Botox used for?

Botox, as well as alternative anti-aging injectables like Xeomin and Dysport, is ideal for softening lines, wrinkles, and grooves in various areas of your face. For instance, Botox can minimize the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet near your eyes
  • Moderate to severe forehead lines
  • Frown lines between eyebrows (glabellar lines)

Xeomin and Dysport are alternative solutions for dramatically reducing the appearance of frown lines between your brows.

How does Botox work?

Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport all work similarly by delivering safe and purified botulinum strains to targeted muscles. These formularies interact with chemicals that stimulate cell signaling involved in muscle contractions, so muscles ultimately become more relaxed.

Plus, these injectables are each designed to target specific muscles for optimal skin-smoothing results. While treated muscles relax, surrounding muscles function normally, meaning you can continue making your natural facial expressions, without worrying about developing wrinkles. It won’t look like you’ve had “work” done.

Does it hurt to get Botox?

Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport each involve the use of very small, fine needles. It’s normal to feel a slight prick of the needle and some slight burning, but you shouldn’t feel severe pain.

The caring practitioners at New Look Laser Medical offer a topical numbing cream, so you won’t be able to feel a thing. If you need a numbing cream to ensure your visit is as comfortable as possible, just come in about 20-30 minutes before your session to give the numbing solution time to activate.

When does Botox wear off?

Botulinum toxin injections, like Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport, each provide optimal results for up to four months before they start to wear off. You may find that your results last even longer for finer lines.

Once you notice any lines and grooves coming through again, you can always schedule another Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport appointment at New Look Laser Medical. It’s safe to have your neurotoxin treatment repeated as needed.
