Frequently Asked Questions
What is Botox®?
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable medication used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. Botox contains a highly-purified form of botulinum toxin protein that comes from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. When Dr. Rozehzadeh or Dr. Gohari injects Botox into specific areas of your face, it relaxes the muscle activity that normally causes wrinkles.
Botox smoothes your face and minimizes wrinkles by working beneath the surface of your skin. Most men and women notice results within 24-48 hours after a Botox treatment and these results last up to four months.
What can I expect during Botox treatment?
Botox injections typically feel like a pinch at the area of the injections. You can request a topical numbing cream for the areas you’re having treated to minimize any discomfort. The injections are usually well-tolerated and only take about 10 minutes to complete. Dr. Rozehzadeh and Dr. Gohari are experts at delivering natural-looking results for a more youthful appearance without invasive surgery or downtime.
After a treatment, you look like yourself, only with fewer visible crow’s feet, frown lines, and wrinkles. Your skin may be a little red at first, but that usually goes away in a few hours. You can go back to work or resume your daily activities immediately after you leave the office, making Botox not only effective, but convenient as well.
How safe is Botox?
The safety of Botox has been evaluated in clinical trials and in more than 400 scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals. Botox is FDA-approved and it has been the subject of extensive studies, and it’s approved for use in more than 70 countries.
What are the potential side effects of Botox?
Side effects of Botox are minimal and temporary if there are any at all. You may experience slight discomfort at the injection sites or a headache, but this usually goes away quickly. You should not get Botox injections if you have a known allergy to any of the ingredients in Botox, but Dr. Rozehzadeh and Dr. Gohari go over this with you before your procedure takes place.
