Botox Q & A

How does BotoxⓇ work?

Botox paralyzes the muscles just beneath your facial skin. Then, those muscles can no longer move and can’t pull your skin and create wrinkles and folds.

Botox is formulated from the neurotoxin Clostridium botulinum, which is found naturally in lakes, soil, and forests. The amount in Botox is incredibly minute and has been used safely for more than 20 years.

Dr. Brauman administers Botox by using one or more injections in the targeted area. He determines the volume and placement of the injections according to the shape of your face and where your wrinkles are most prominent.

Many physicians and other medical professionals offer Botox injections, but the best outcomes require a thorough understanding of facial musculature and extensive experience. By choosing Dr. Brauman to complete your treatment, you can rest assured that your final results will create a more rested, youthful appearance.

What happens during and after Botox appointments?

Getting Botox takes very little time; the injections only take a few minutes. Many men and women come in for their injections during their lunch break or in the middle of an otherwise busy day.

There’s no recovery time required, and no visible signs that you’ve received the injections. After your treatment, it takes 24-72 hours for the full effect to develop. The effects last from three to six months.

As the effects wear off, your fine lines and wrinkles may gradually reappear. Most men and women schedule Botox injections several times a year and consider the treatment as an essential part of their skin care and anti-aging regimen.

One of the reasons Botox is so appealing is because the effects wear off over time. That means, on the off chance you’re not happy with the results, Dr. Brauman can alter the injection locations or try a different aesthetic treatment.

What are the potential side effects of Botox?

Botox has a low risk of side effects. These effects are generally mild, subside over a brief period, and include:

  • Mild discomfort at the injection site
  • A headache
  • Numbness
  • Mild nausea
  • Temporary brow or lid drooping
  • Dry mouth
  • Mild swelling
  • Rash

Most men and women are so pleased with the effects that they return for additional treatments. If you’d like to try Botox, schedule an appointment with Dr. Brauman at your earliest convenience.
