What is Botox?

Botox is a medication that blocks signals along the pathways of your nerves. When injected along specific pathways, Botox relaxes your muscles.

Repeated facial expressions over time often cause deep lines and wrinkles. Aesthetics treatments with Botox injections in these areas cause contracted muscles to loosen, smoothing out your skin, and giving your face a more youthful appearance.

Will Botox make my face look unnatural?

When you receive your Botox treatments from a licensed medical provider with experience with cosmetic injection therapy, there’s no need to worry about the “frozen” look that some people associate with Botox. The team of providers at Francisco Martinez, MD, have undergone specialized training so you can count on them for results that look beautiful and natural, without preventing you from making regular facial expressions.

Which areas can Botox injections treat?

Botox is FDA-approved for the following areas.

  • Forehead wrinkles
  • “Worry lines” between the brows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Lip lines
  • Tight neck bands

Contracted muscles do not cause some types of creases. These wrinkles, for example, nasolabial folds along the sides of your mouth and nose, may not respond well to Botox injection therapy.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Botox injections don’t take long, usually about 10 minutes or less, and most areas require five brief doses or less. Like any kind of injection, you’ll feel slight pinching during the procedure, but this is usually well-tolerated. If you have sensitive skin, your Francisco Martinez, MD, aesthetics expert can apply a topical anesthetic before beginning your treatment.

When will I see results from Botox treatments?

You should notice that your skin appears smoother and looks younger within 24-48 hours of your Botox treatment at Francisco Martinez, MD. Your results can last up to four months.

Is there any downtime after a Botox treatment?

You can return to normal activities right away after your Botox treatment. You may have some mild redness around the injection site, but this usually goes away in a few hours.
