What is Botox®?
There are few people who have not heard of Botox®, but in case you don’t know the particulars, Botox®, also known as botulinum toxin injection, is a safe and effective wrinkle relaxer or neuromodulator that has been around since the 1970s. Botox® is used in a wide variety of applications, from relaxing wrinkles so they vanish from sight, to treating migraines and overactive sweat glands beneath the arms.
Although Botox® is our primary offering, DrSkin also has other neuromodulators that are similar in efficacy. The main difference is that other neuromodulators like Botox® do not contain proteins known to cause allergic reactions. If you are unsure which wrinkle relaxer is right for you, get in touch with one of the friendly DrSkin team members for more information.
How Does Botox® Help With Wrinkles?
As mentioned previously, Botox® is a wrinkle relaxer that is made from a purified form of botulinum toxin type A. The substance paralyzes the muscles in the face by blocking nerve signals. In turn, this helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. How? Once the muscles are paralyzed, you can no longer make the expressions causing those wrinkles and fine lines to form.

Here is why you will love Botox® and other wrinkle relaxers:

Areas Treated With Botox® & Wrinkle Relaxers
The following places can be treated with Botox®:
- Forehead – Wrinkles often form across the brow horizontally. This is the most commonly treated area.
- Frown Lines – Also known as “11s,” these are the lines that appear when furrowing your brows.
- Crow’s Feet – Lines found near the corners of the eyes and near the temples.
- Jawline – Use Botox® to relax the masseter muscle along the jaw line.
- Bunny Lines – Fine lines that run along either side of the nose, often caused by scrunching the nose.
What to Expect During a Botox® Appointment
Preparing and undergoing a Botox® injection is a very straightforward experience. The day before your appointment, we ask that you do not take any ibuprofen or have alcohol beverages, as this could thin your blood and increase the chance of bruising around the injection site.
Botox® injections take mere seconds to do, and you will feel only the slightest of pinches at the target area. So expect check-in and prep to take longer than the actual procedure. We will have to remove any cosmetics on your face and assess the target area, for instance. Afterwards, you will receive instructions on aftercare and be sent on your way. Botox® and other wrinkle relaxers offered by DrSkin all have minimal downtime.
You see results within a week or so!
Is There Any Downtime?
No, you don’t have to worry about downtime. However, after your appointment, we recommend that you avoid laying down for at least 4 hours. Do not exercise, put on makeup, or drink alcohol for at least 24 hours. Do not get any facials for 7 days.
Other than that, you can resume everyday activities without any worry.
How Long Do Results Last?
Botox® injections tend to begin working right away, though you will notice the results within a week or so. Results last between 2-6 months, with the average being 4 months. The duration of the results depends on where the wrinkle relaxer was injected and your own unique body. Generally, the targeted areas with thinner skin, such as the eyes and lips, diminish more quickly. The forehead and between the brows will last the longest.
The body will metabolize your Botox® injection within 3-4 months.
Is It True That You Cannot Stop Botox® Once You Start?
No, that is not true. The frequency you get treated with Botox® is up to you and your goals. Although the DrSkin specialists may recommend maintenance treatments every 3-4 months or so, you do not have to continue with Botox®. In fact, even after the treatment wears off and your muscles go back to making the same contractions as before, your wrinkles will not be any deeper. Additionally, it will take longer for deeper wrinkles to form.
