What is Botox?

Botox involves injecting a form of botulinum toxin to relax the muscles of the face thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What cosmetic issues can Botox treat?

Botox is used to treat a variety of cosmetic issues, but it’s particularly effective against crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles. However, Botox has also been used to treat other problems like headaches, muscle spasms, lazy eye, drooping eyelids, and even excessive sweating.

What should I expect from my Botox treatment at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana?

Botox treatment takes only a few short minutes. Based on the look you are hoping to achieve, we will precisely pinpoint the areas to be treated. You may experience slight redness and swelling near the treatment sites immediately afterward; however, these side effects should be minor and will resolve within a few hours.

When will I see results from Botox? How long will my results last?

While many patients may notice some subtle improvement in their lines and wrinkles within two to four days after treatment, it usually takes about 2 weeks to see the full results of your Botox. Results can last anywhere from four to six months as the effect of the treatment begins to wear off and muscle contractions begin to return.

Is Botox painful?

One of the biggest benefits of Botox is that you can achieve younger-looking skin without invasive cosmetic procedures. While Botox is non-invasive and is not considered painful, some patients experience a slight pinch during the injection. Our main goal is to make sure you are comfortable during treatment. We are happy to apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before treatment.

Can I get more than one Botox treatment?

If you want to retain a more youthful appearance, you may want to opt for follow-up Botox treatments. Most patients will get subsequent treatments two to three times per year to maintain their results.

If you want to revamp your look and revive the health of your skin, then it might be time to consider Botox treatments here at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Indiana.
