Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is an injection best known for smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles to minimize the visual signs of aging. 

The simple, nonsurgical procedure diminishes the appearance of deep, persistent lines between your eyebrows, frown, or laugh lines, crow’s feet, and upper and lower lip lines that develop over time.

At Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions, we use Botulinum injectables, such as:

  • Botox® Cosmetic
  • Jeuveau®
  • Dysport®
  • Xeomin®

We use the various types of botulinum toxin therapy to improve dynamic wrinkles, including your worry, frown, or laugh lines, crow’s feet, and upper and lower lip lines. 

We conduct a thorough evaluation to assess your needs and may recommend one or a combination of treatments to help you achieve your desired look. 

Good to Great: Medical Cosmetic Solutions also uses Botox for patients with excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis. 

How does Botox work?

Some of the lines and wrinkles that appear on your face develop from facial expressions. When your muscles contract, they create grooves in your skin. 

As you get older and your skin becomes less elastic, the grooves created by your repeated facial expressions turn into permanent lines and wrinkles. 

Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to reduce the movement of those muscles. With less movement, your skin can relax and smooth out, allowing your lines and wrinkles to fade. 

What is Botox treatment like?

We create customized Botox treatment plans during your consultation. Your plan includes the type of botulinum toxin therapy best suited for you, as well as the number of injections you need and where they’ll be placed.

We use a very small, thin needle for your Botox injections and provide cold packs to reduce discomfort. Your Botox injections only take a few minutes to administer and require no downtime. 

You may experience some tenderness and redness at the site of injection, but these side effects subside in a few hours. 

How soon will I see results from Botox?

You will see an improvement in your look within 3-14 days after Botox injections. The results may last up to four months.

Repeating your Botox injections as soon as you notice the effects wearing off not only helps you maintain your youthful look but may prevent new wrinkles from forming.
