Botox Q & A

What is Botox®?

Botox is a nonsurgical treatment used to limit lines and wrinkles on the face with injections of botulinum toxin A. The areas frequently treated with Botox include frown lines, crow's-feet, and the forehead. The injections work by temporarily relaxing and paralyzing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles.

Other areas that can be improved by Botox include:

  • The jawline, to turn up the corners of the mouth
  • Saggy neck muscles, called platysma bands
  • Around the mouth to decrease signs of wrinkles, or "smoker's lines"
  • The chin, to improve the appearance of a dimpled or cobblestone chin

How Effective is Botox?

The effects of Botox will last between 3 to 12 months. As muscle activity returns, lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear, and follow-up visits will be necessary for continued improvement. Over time, with regular treatments, the wrinkles will become less prominent and fewer treatments needed, as the muscles have been trained to relax. Botox is most effective on wrinkles that appear when the face moves, such as frown lines.

What Can I Expect During a Botox Treatment?

Botox is administered through injection of the skin or muscles resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance to the skin. When you meet Dr. Rochlin, she will evaluate your face to identify the exact locations where injections will provide the most benefit. Results are noticeable within a few days of having the injections. Depending on the area of the face being treated, it can take about 10 to 20 minutes to finish. Botox injections are safe when administered by a trained professional. Botox is a not a permanent solution, and follow up injections may be necessary. If you have questions about Botox, make an appointment with Dr. Rochlin to learn more and to ask any questions you might have.
