Frequently Asked Questions About Botox
What is Botox®?
Botox is an FDA-approved, safe and effective 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 works beneath the surface of your skin to smooth out wrinkles and smooth your face by reducing the formation of fine lines. Within 24-48 hours after a Botox treatment, most men and women start to notice improvements, and these improvements last for up to four months after the treatment.
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?
More than 400 peer-reviewed scientific articles have been published, in prestigious peer-reviewed journals, through which Botox's safety has been evaluated in clinical trials. There has been extensive research done on Botox and it has been approved by the FDA, and it is available in more than 70 countries where it has been approved for use.
What are the potential side effects of Botox?
Side effects of receiving 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. Dr. Rozehzadeh and Dr. Gohari will go over this with you before your procedure takes place.
