Botox Q & A

How does BOTOX work?

Wrinkles are caused by several issues that arise as you age, depending on your genetics and history of sun exposure. It’s normal to lose collagen, which is responsible for keeping your skin tight and firm. You also lose the fat that keeps your facial skin plump and smooth.

Combined, these issues cause facial muscles to work closer to the surface of your skin. Not only are these facial muscles more noticeable, but they also make wrinkles form in your skin.

BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable that contains small amounts of a purified botulinum toxin from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected, BOTOX blocks a chemical messenger called acetylcholine right at the spots where nerve endings connect with muscle cells.

This forces muscle cells to shorten, so contractions cease and muscles relax. As this occurs, your skin smooths out, and wrinkles and fine lines are much less noticeable. They may even disappear.

BOTOX has been tested extensively throughout the world and is still the top-selling product of its kind, so when a medical professional injects it, you can feel confident that your treatment is safe.

Is BOTOX permanent?

No, although it is long lasting. Since BOTOX relaxes muscles right away, you might notice an improvement in your appearance before leaving the office after your injections. Most men and women experience optimal results within 48 hours.

Your results should last for up to four months for the deeper grooves and wrinkles across your forehead, or possibly a little longer for fine lines near your eyes. Once BOTOX wears off, you can have the treatments repeated.

How long does a BOTOX treatment take?

Once you decide that BOTOX is right for you, the actual injection process is quick. Dr. Chatterjee cleans your skin, marks the areas to inject, and makes several brief BOTOX injections. Most clients only need 10 minutes, so you can schedule your appointment during your lunch break.
