Botox is an FDA-approved treatment used to improve the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging. Our team of Botox experts will explain everything you need to know about your treatment. Contact SDBotox for a consultation today!

Botox works by partially paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles so that underlying muscle contractions cannot reinforce them. With time, the wrinkles fade, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Botox competitors include topical creams and plastic surgery, neither of which address the source of the lines.

Botox should not be confused with cosmetic lasers, which focus on evening out skin tone rather than removing fine lines. Botox can restore elasticity and bring a youthful glow to the appearance of the skin.

Botox FAQs

Botox works by targeting the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet. Patients can also use it to treat migraines, excessive sweating, and disorders of the esophagus, bladder, and skeletal muscles.

A Botox consultation and procedure can take ten minutes to complete. You may begin to see results within 24-48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Most patients see results on post-procedure day three and full results on post-procedure day seven. Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; you’ll be able to go about your routine immediately after you leave SDBotox.

Botox Treatment Instructions

Before

  • Let your doctor know if you suffer from cold sores. A prescription is needed to eliminate the risk of infection and developing sores post-treatment.

  • Anti-inflammatory and blood-thinning medication may cause bruising or swelling at the injection site. Avoid taking this medication 10 to 14 days before treatment. Blood-thinning medications include Aspirin, Advil, Ibuprofen, Motrin, Fish Oil Supplements,

  • Alcohol is a blood thinning substance, increasing the risk of bruising. Avoid drinking for one week before your treatment.

  • You should schedule your appointment two weeks before a special event to allow ample time for bruising and swelling to disappear.

  • If a rash, cold, sore, or blemish appears in the treatment area, try to reschedule your appointment at least 48 hours in advance.

  • Eat and drink plenty of water to reduce the chances of lightheadedness, fainting, and nausea during treatment.

  • Consider taking Arnica to prevent potential bruising. Allocate five tablets under the tongue three times a day for a week before the procedure.

After

  • You may notice small bumps at each injection site. Wait at least 4 hours post-injection before rubbing or massaging the areas.

  • Avoid facials, laser treatments, and microdermabrasion for up to 10 days after treatment.

  • Wait 4 hours before lying down, doing any heavy lifting, vigorous exercise, or active straining. Avoiding this activity prevents Botox from migrating to other parts of the body.

  • Go about regular activities like showering and applying makeup with light and gentle movements.

  • It takes about 4 to 7 days to see results. If desired results are not visible after two weeks, you may need additional units of Botox.
