What is Botox?

BOTOX® is a drug that’s been used for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is a brand name of a toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. There are other brands, such as Dysport. Botox is the term you hear most often because it was the first injectable botulinum toxin. It works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, so those injected areas relax and soften. The muscles cannot contract, creating a smoother look. The most common side effect is bruising and that will fade as the days go by. A mild pain and swelling can also occur but is temporary. Headaches are typically rare and are gone in 1-2 days.

  • Forehead – The Botox treatment will soften the forehead lines and wrinkles, and “unfurrow” those lines between the brows.
  • Eye wrinkles, “crow’s feet” – These areas treated with Botox will relax and the lines will smoothen.
  • Frown lines, “marionette lines” – Even deep lines around the mouth will appear softer and smoother after a Botox treatment to the area.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dysport was approved only as a treatment for moderate to very deep furrow lines in the glabella, the area between the brows. Botox can be used in more areas on the face and neck.
Botox generally takes about 1 to 2 weeks to reach its full effect.

To enjoy the best effects from your treatment, avoid lying down for 4-6 hours.

It’s advised to wait at least 24 hours before returning to exercise, and try to avoid rigorous workouts for about 2-3 days. The Botox can “migrate” with too much movement and a raised heart rate. It’s best to let it settle nicely, and you can relax for a day or two.

It’s recommended that you wait at least 24 hours before having an alcoholic beverage.

The effects from a treatment with Botox will last 3 to 6 months. Your muscles will gradually start receiving the signals again, and with that muscle action increasing, the lines will slowly start to show again.
Approved by the FDA in 2002, Botox has proven to be quite safe. While botulinum toxin is life threatening, small doses — like those used in the cosmetic application of Botox — are considered safe.
Good aftercare means following the directions of your provider, and in the following months, staying hydrated and maintaining a healthy lifestyle with diet, exercise can extend the life of your Botox treatment, and extend the life of you!
Botox is not recommended if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
