Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable filler that is made from botulinum toxin, a substance that inhibits the movement of muscles at the injection site. As a cosmetic procedure, it is used to fill in fine lines, wrinkles, and areas of the face that are sagging.
Results of Botox can last for several months, and patients do not report any adverse side effects. Botox is safe for most individuals, but it may not be right for you if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or suffer from certain health conditions.
What happens at my Botox appointment?
The expert team at the Doctors Center are here to help you make an informed decision about cosmetic enhancements like Botox. Before your appointment, you’ll meet with Dr. Capobianco or one of his team members to discuss your desired results.
After thoroughly cleaning and prepping the treatment area, Dr. Capobianco injects the Botox solution into your skin, massaging it slightly to fill in lines or wrinkles and distribute the product evenly.
Dr. Leo Capobianco gives you detailed instructions about caring for your skin when you go home. He might advise you to avoid sun exposure or physical activities that could compromise your results. In most cases, however, you can return to your normal activities right away.
While you shouldn’t experience any pain, you might notice slight tenderness or swelling at the injection site, which should dissipate within a few hours. You can see the full results of a Botox treatment after about 3-7 days.
What are the benefits of Botox?
As one of the most common cosmetic procedures with the fewest complications, Botox injections are beneficial in many ways. They can:
- Eliminate the need for expensive surgery
- Help to alleviate headaches or migraines
- Allow you to maintain regular facial expressions, minus the wrinkles
- Provide results that last 3-6 months
Botox injections are also quick and easy and involve virtually no downtime. You’ll get powerful results that even the best skin care products can’t deliver.
