Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved treatment that improves the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and lines that form in adults. Wrinkles inevitably form as a result of aging and exposure to the environment, but they can also form due to being expressive. 

When you smile, frown, scowl, or laugh, wrinkles appear and then disappear once your facial muscles relax. Over time, these lines etch into the surface of your skin and become more permanent.

Injectables like Botox and Jeuveau contain a purified form of botulinum toxin that temporarily halts the muscle activity responsible for dynamic wrinkles.

Where is Botox most effective?

At The Spa MD, Jennett uses Botox to reduce the appearance of:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Vertical brow lines
  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Vertical neck bands

Jeuveau may be used in similar areas. Although many people are more familiar with Botox, Jeuveau can be just as effective and is often more affordable. 

Do Botox injections hurt?

You'll feel a pinch during each Botox injection, but most people tolerate the procedure quite well. The needles used are quite fine and each injection is quick. The entire process takes just a few minutes.

What can I expect after Botox injections?

Botox and Jeuveau injections require no downtime following treatment. You can go back to work and daily activities right after.

Some people do develop slight bruising or redness at the injection sites, but these are easily masked with makeup and fade within a day or two.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

Botox and Jeuveau offer wrinkle reduction for 3-4 months. After this period, you can get a retreatment to maintain your look. Maintaining Botox will slow the signs of aging and prevent the formation of deeper lines.
