San Diego and La Jolla, California

If you spend a lot of time concentrating, frowning, or squinting, then you have probably started to notice wrinkle lines in between your eyebrows. As you perform these activities, the muscles between your eyebrows flex, eventually causing residual wrinkles that never completely disappear even when you are done with the motion that caused them. These lines are otherwise known as glabellar lines, or 11’s, referring to the number they imitate. They are very common and can start to appear at any age. Luckily, if you are between the ages of 18 and 65, there is an easy treatment to reduce or eliminate their appearance.

FAQ’s on Botox Cosmetic Treatment

Here are a few Frequently Asked Questions, and answers about the Botox cosmetic treatment has to offer. We hope this helps you decide whether Botox injections are right for you.

What is Botox made of?

Botox is a prescription drug called OnabotulinumtoxinA. It is a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria strain of Clostridium botulinum. It is FDA approved for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles and lines and is completely safe.

How does Botox work?

Botox is a neurotoxin that, when injected into muscles, relaxes them from moving for a period of time. When used cosmetically to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it does so by temporarily blocking the nerve activity in the muscles surrounding the wrinkle, preventing the muscle from forming the motion that causes the wrinkle. The result is a smoother, wrinkle-free skin surface

Is Botox wrinkle filler?

No. Botox only prevents the muscles from forming the wrinkle in the skin. Facial fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane are a different type of injection in which an injectable gel is gently injected inside the wrinkle, filling in the wrinkle by plumping up the skin and making the wrinkle disappear. Botox and facial fillers work synergistically together; the filler fills in the wrinkle while the Botox keeps the wrinkle from reforming.

Do Botox results show right away?

No. Patients that receive Botox injections start noticing a difference in their facial muscles about two to seven days after the injections. Full effect of the Botox injection can take up to two weeks.

How often do I need Botox injections?

Typically when you start Botox injections, you’ll want to get them every three to four months. Patients report that with repeated injections, however, that they can go longer in between treatments. Some patients have their Botox injections once per year because they have been getting them on a regular basis.
