What Should You Know About Botox? (Top Injectors 2021)

What Should You Know About Botox? (Top Injectors 2021)

What should you know about Botox if you’re considering treatment with Botox cosmetic? Since Allergan’s Botox® was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe glabellar lines (i.e. the frown lines between the eyebrows) in April 2002, it has become the go-to for anyone looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions (think: frowning, squinting, smiling, and the like).

Here’s the rundown on vital information to be aware of prior to treatment.

Number 1, Botox is not an iron and that lines and wrinkles present at rest do not just immediately disappear with Botox. Botox is both preventative and restorative. It relaxes facial muscles to keep you from contracting them in ways that cause lines and wrinkles.

We’re seeing Botox use among young patients for preventative effects. Those with existing lines will see gradual softening with ongoing use, especially when partnered with excellent skin care and occasionally injectable fillers.

Number 2 , Botox is primarily used to treat lines between the eyebrows on the forehead and crow’s feet. It can also be used around the mouth to keep the lips from pursing, the mouth from turning down the chin from pulling forward and to relax your muscles.

Number 3, Botox is temporary, with relaxation of muscles lasting three to four months. Those with very strong muscles or high metabolism will need treated at three month intervals, while those with less activity may see improvement for six months.

Number 4, there is some pain with treatment. While the actual injections only take a minute or two, you’ll feel the needle stick and some stinging for a very short while, topical numbing or ice can be used to minimize the discomfort. You may feel something for a few minutes afterwards, as well as a crunching sensation as the Botox goes in to or under the skin. Expect to see a small red bump like a mosquito bite and a small stick mark for a half hour or so.

Number 5, there are a few things not to do afterwards for the rest of the day. Avoid cardio aggressive exercise, yoga or prolonged bending over at the waist. Do not wear a tight hat, rub your forehead, apply direct pressure or have a massage. And don’t take Advil, Aleve, Motrin or ibuprofen for the rest of the day.

No.6 Botox is for everyday people. If you look among your family and friends and notice smooth foreheads and absence of frown lines, Botox is likely at play, whether they admit it or not. Although costly prevention of aging is less expensive than future surgery, expect to pay between two hundred and five hundred dollars per treatment depending on the areas in need of relaxation.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox works by reversibly blocking the process of neurotransmission, which stops the muscles that cause wrinkles from contracting. This reduces the development of any deep lines on the face as well as the fine lines. Additionally, Botox promotes new collagen development, lending a fuller and plumper look. A Botox injection takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require any kind of anesthesia. Botox results are seen within 3 to 5 days after injection and the full effects take 10 to 14 days.

Is There Any Discomfort?

All injections can hurt, but the syringes used for Botox injections are small, so pain is typically minimal. The dermatologist can numb the area with a cold pack or a topical anesthetic cream for 10 to 20 minutes before giving the injections, so you might not feel severe pain, if any. Realize that you might feel a little discomfort a few hours later, once the anesthetic cream has completely worn off. Most people who receive Botox treatments have no severe side effects, and carry on with their day-to-day activities without hindrance. The best dermatologist knows how to administer the injection to avoid side effects. This underscores the significance of finding a practitioner who boasts a wealth of experience in giving Botox injections, such as Dr. Ava and her expert team at Ava MD.

Which Facial Areas can be Treated with Botox?

Forehead Wrinkles

Forehead wrinkles are a by-product of aging, and you can’t run away from them forever. If you are concerned about the premature appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or you wish to keep them at bay for as long as you can, Botox can help. Botox injections for forehead wrinkles are an excellent option for achieving a youthful and relaxed look. Botox can relax the fine lines and wrinkles by reducing the ability of these muscles to contract.

Frown Lines

Frown lines are vertical lines that sit between and above the eyebrow. Similar to forehead wrinkles, as we age frown lines become more and more prominent. Every time you frown, these muscles contract, forming vertical frown lines that are similar to an accordion when it’s compressed. As demonstrated by its huge global popularity and success, Botox works extremely well in removing frown lines or preventing the lines from becoming deeper.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are those fine lines and wrinkles that extend from the side of your eyes towards your temples, although most people like to call them laughter lines. Fine lines usually appear when the skin loses both collagen and hyaluronic acid. Botox remains the best injectable treatment for crow’s feet. This injectable cosmetic treatment relaxes the muscles that crinkle whenever we grin.  Because different muscles are involved, using it to treat crow’s feet won’t create a glassy, frozen appearance.

Under-Eye Lines

Under-eye lines are triggered by repeated movement of the muscles around the eye and the cheek as well as thinning of the skin due to aging. Botox for fine lines can help to soften the wrinkles under your eyes by relaxing the muscles around the eyes, giving a smoother look. The best thing is that it requires a very small amount and can help soften wrinkles under the eyes. However, Botox won’t reduce all the wrinkles like you may see in crow’s feet or the forehead region, instead you will notice a soft relaxation under the eyes, and you might also notice a bright, open appearance of your eyes.

Marionette Lines

Marionette lines are wrinkles that run from the side of the mouth towards the jawline. Often times, the sides of the mouth are turned downwards, leading to an angry, dissatisfied appearance. Marionette lines are triggered by skin laxity.

The position of the brow on the face is usually a function of muscles above and below the eyebrows raising and lowering each brow. The procedure is very quick and involves less discomfort. Because Botox works by preventing the transmission of impulses to the treated muscles, those muscles that help elevate the brows can function without any resistance from the muscles that keep them down.
