Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable product that softens lines and creases on the face. These lines appear over time with age due to conscious and subconscious muscle-flexing. Your skin creases in certain areas when you make certain facial expressions, thus forming lines that eventually remain in place even when relaxed.

Botox works to erase or minimize these lines by affecting the muscles contributing to them. More specifically, the neuromodulator in Botox called botulinum toxin temporarily stops targeted motor nerves from communicating with the muscles. Therefore, those muscles cannot flex either subconsciously or consciously.

Your Botox injections are quick and cause little discomfort, if any. Your provider at Aesthetic Lab offers numbing options before any injections such as ice or a topical anesthetic.

What are the results of Botox?

Botox can rejuvenate your appearance in a few different ways. During a consultation at Aesthetic Lab, your provider goes over the many possibilities of Botox and asks about your own goals and expectations. Botox injections can minimize:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Chin dimples and wrinkles
  • Vertical lip lines

Additionally, Botox can help contour your jawline or lift the corners of the mouth for a friendlier or more approachable resting expression. It’s up to you and your provider to decide where to place Botox and how many areas you want to target.

How long do the results of Botox last?

Botox has relatively predictable results, typically lasting 3-6 months before diminishing. If you were happy with Botox the first time receiving it, you could schedule follow-up injections to enjoy those results for a longer time. You can get Botox injections repeatedly at Aesthetic Lab if you choose to do so.

If you receive Botox injections often enough, they can play a preventive role; they may stop new fine lines from forming on your face.

Botox works well on its own but can also be part of a larger comprehensive treatment plan. You can get it alongside fillers, facials, microdermabrasion, and other skin treatments at Aesthetic Lab.
