Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable medication that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet around your eyes.

Botox contains a highly purified form of botulinum toxin sourced from a naturally occurring bacterium. When Dr. Santa-Cruz or one of the aesthetic specialists at Lasertique Spa injects Botox into specific areas of your forehead and around your eyes, it relaxes the muscle activity that causes wrinkles.

As Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles that create lines, it smooths your face and minimizes wrinkles beneath the surface of your skin. Most men and women notice results within 24-48 hours after treatment, and the results last up to four months.

What can I expect during a Botox treatment?

Dr. Santa-Cruz and the medical spa team are experts at delivering Botox injections so you get natural-looking results and a more youthful appearance without surgery or downtime.

With Botox, you can still make all your usual facial expressions, but without the worry of adding to the cumulative effect of creating facial lines and wrinkles. Ultimately, you look like yourself, only with fewer visible crow’s feet and frown lines.

Botox injections typically feel like a slight pinch at the injection site; however, you may request a topical numbing cream before the injections to minimize any discomfort. The injections are usually well-tolerated and only take about 10 minutes.

Immediately following the treatment, your skin may be a little red, but that usually goes away in a few hours. You can go back to work or resume your daily activities, making Botox not only an effective anti-aging treatment but a convenient one as well.

How long do Botox results last?

If you’re treating fine lines and wrinkles, you can expect Botox injections to last about four months. However, the effects may not last as long if you have deeper grooves in your forehead or more severe crow’s feet around your eyes. You can also repeat Botox injections every few months to maintain your desired appearance.
