Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a purified neurotoxin that temporarily eases the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It reduces muscle activity in areas of your face that wrinkle due to expressions, such as smiling, frowning, or squinting.

Botox is well-studied, with more than 500 studies proving its safety and efficacy. Botox is also approved in more than 95 countries for cosmetic uses. It remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States due to its quality, predictable results, and quick effects.

Where are Botox injections effective?

Botox is FDA-approved to treat the following areas:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Worry lines between the eyebrows

Botox targets the muscles that cause these common lines. When applied by the skilled hands of the practitioners at Praxis Wellness Center, Botox helps you achieve a dramatic improvement in your appearance. You’ll still look natural — not frozen — but younger and brighter.

When are results of Botox injections noticeable and how long do they last?

Expect to see initial smoothing of lines and wrinkles in 24-48 hours. Full results usually appear within seven days.

Results last three to four months depending on the area treated and how your body responds. If you like the results from your injections, you can schedule retreatments to maintain your youthful look.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Botox injections do require a needle, so you feel a pinch with each application. Most people tolerate the injections well, but if you are concerned about sensation, talk to your provider about using a numbing cream or ice before treatment to numb your skin.

Each Botox appointment is quick — lasting just 20 minutes or so.

Is downtime necessary following Botox injections?

You can go right back to work or other daily activities following your Botox injections — even workouts. You may experience slight bruising or swelling right after your injections but these can easily be covered with makeup.
