Botox Q & A
How does Botox work?
Botox®, a type of neurotoxin injectable, contains purified ingredients that block certain signals between cells and your brain. These signals are what make muscles twitch and contract with each facial expression you make.
Since you’re prone to facial volume loss as you get older, those muscles work closer and closer to the surface of your skin.
This causes folds and grooves to develop each time your muscles contract. Botox temporarily forces your muscles to relax so your skin can smooth out.
Because Botox is designed to be injected into very specific muscles, surrounding muscles continue to function as normal, so you can keep making your normal facial expressions. No need to worry about a “frozen” look.
What can Botox treat?
Botox treatment packages from ReNew360 are personalized to you and the severity of your lines and wrinkles. In general, Botox is ideal for resolving:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases
- Frown lines between your brows
Because Botox blocks specific cell signaling, it is even used for treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), chronic migraines, tension headaches, and more. The practitioners at ReNew360 let you know about other issues Botox can treat.
When will I have results with Botox?
Botox is fast acting. In most cases, it starts working immediately and provides dramatic results or improvements in your symptoms within about 48 hours.
While Botox injections from ReNew360 don’t require any downtime, you may be a little red or swollen for a few hours afterward. Give yourself time to heal if you have an important event on the same day as your Botox treatment.
How long does Botox last?
Botox is long lasting, but to continue experiencing the benefits of Botox, you’re going to need ongoing treatments.
Depending on why you’re getting Botox and the severity of your symptoms, treatments last anywhere from about three to six months. Once Botox wears off, it’s perfectly safe to come back to ReNew360 for additional injections.
