What is Botox and How Does It Work?

Botox is a popular injection treatment that is most commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles. It consists of a small dose of a highly purified toxin that, when injected into the skin, paralyzes certain facial muscles. The result is a look that is softened, wrinkle-free and quite beautiful.

Is Botox Safe?

Yes, Botox is considered to be quite safe as long as you always visit a qualified dermatologist for your treatments. The treatment has been around for over a decade and numerous studies have been done demonstrating its safety and effectiveness.

Side effects are possible, though most are not severe. Possible side effects include muscle and tissue drooping, swelling, pain, vision problems, dry mouth and allergic reactions, among others. Speak to your dermatologist about your risk of side effects if you have any questions or concerns.

What Benefits Does Botox Offer?

Botox is quick, easy and highly effective. The procedure is minimally invasive and only takes around 10 minutes. Results often appear as soon as 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, and they typically last around four months. The downtime is minimal, and you can resume the majority of your daily activities as soon as your procedure is complete. Botox offers real results in a fraction of the time and with a fraction of the cost of more invasive treatments.

When Will I See Results?

You should begin to see results in as little as 24 to 48 hours after your procedure is complete. Your results should also improve over time, for up to four months.

Will Botox Make My Face Look Frozen?

No, this is a myth. As long as you see a professional San Antonio dermatologist Dr. Banta for treatment, your face should look completely natural and absolutely beautiful. Talk to your dermatologist about the amount of wrinkle reduction you would like to see before the procedure for best results.
