Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription-only, injectable wrinkle treatment that contains minute amounts of a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A. When your aesthetic expert administers Botox, it smooths out your current wrinkles and prevents new wrinkles from forming. The team at Allure Medical Spa and Laser Center uses Botox to erase:

  • Frown lines (11s)
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead furrows

Botox lasts about three to four months. Your Allure Medical Spa and Laser Center practitioner helps you schedule maintenance treatments to keep your skin silky and smooth.

 

How does Botox work?

Botox is a neuromodulator that blocks signals to the nerves in your dynamic muscles. Dynamic muscles such as the glabellar muscles around your eyebrows create wrinkles by repeatedly pushing your skin into folds. Botox stops the muscles from fully contracting.

When your skin isn’t being constantly pushed into creases, it smooths out. Within days to weeks after your practitioner treats your muscles with Botox, your skin is wrinkle-free.   

 

Will my face “freeze” with Botox?

Dr. Spurlock and his team are all experts, experienced injectors who administer just enough Botox to relax dynamic muscles without “freezing” them. Though you won’t be able to grimace, you can still make normal, natural expressions with Botox.  

 

Is Botox safe?

Botox is FDA-approved to treat mild to moderate facial wrinkles in the forehead and at the sides of the eyes. Botox has been safely used for cosmetic improvements since 1989. As with all aesthetic procedures, choosing an experienced practitioner is crucial. That’s why patients trust the expert team at Allure Medical Spa and Laser Center to get the most beautiful and predictable results from their Botox injections.

 

Does Botox have side effects?

Any treatment can have side effects. The most common side effects of Botox injections include temporary swelling, redness, or pain at the injection site.

 

Can I use Botox for prejuvenation?

Yes! You don’t have to wait until you have deep frown lines or forehead furrows before adding Botox to your self-care regimen. Even women and men in their 20s rely on Botox to prevent their wrinkles from deepening.

 

Can I get Botox in my 70s?

As long as you’re healthy and your skin is of good quality, you can benefit from Botox at any age. If you have other signs of aging, Dr. Spurlock may recommend co-treatment with therapies such as skin revitalization or Juvéderm dermal fillers.
