Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox® is a cosmetic injectable that the trained providers at Daily Apple Clinic use to help minimize the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. The active ingredient in Botox is a refined version of the botulinum toxin, which prevents signals from going from the nerves in your face to the muscles they control. 

If the signals from the nerves can’t reach the muscles, the muscles can’t form lines, and your wrinkles smooth out as a result. Botox is suitable for use on:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines

Botox was first used as a medical treatment more than 30 years ago, and there’s plenty of evidence that it’s safe. The FDA has fully approved Botox for aesthetic procedures.

Why would I need Botox injections?

When you reach middle age, your body produces fewer collagen and elastin fibers that typically support your soft tissues. This means your skin loses its elasticity and loosens, and the underlying tissues lose their volume.

Everyone develops lines and wrinkles eventually. The age at which yours start to develop and how extensive they become depend on several factors, such as:

  • Dehydration
  • Environmental pollution
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Long-term effects of stress
  • Poor nutrition
  • Smoking cigarettes

Genetics also play a key role in determining how you age, so looking at your older relatives can give you an indication of what your future has in store. 

Botox is an effective, fast, pain-free, and reasonably priced solution to wrinkles. 

What can I expect during a Botox session?

It only takes your trained provider about 10 minutes to perform your Botox treatment, making it ideal for fitting into a busy schedule. 

Before treatment, your provider performs a facial analysis and marks your face in the precise locations where Botox injections will be most effective.

Botox injections use a very fine needle and shouldn’t cause too much discomfort. You can apply an ice pack or use an anesthetic cream to numb your face before the treatment starts if you wish.

When will I see results from Botox?

You should notice a difference in your lines and wrinkles within the first few days of your treatment. The effects of Botox can last up to four months. Visiting Daily Apple Clinic every three to four months enables you to maintain the results of your Botox treatments.
