Botox Q & A

How does BOTOX work?

Each time you squint, frown, smile, or make any other type of expression, your facial muscles cause your skin to wrinkle. When you’re young, your skin bounces right back into place. As you age, though, collagen and plumping fat loss minimize your skin’s ability to smooth out and wrinkles gradually develop.

Botulinum injections, including BOTOX and XEOMIN, contain safe and purified strains of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. When injected, the botulinum bacterium interacts with nerves and brain signaling that forces your muscles to contract.

Since your facial muscles won’t keep contracting, wrinkles and lines can’t develop and your skin remains smooth and young looking. Results from BOTOX and XEOMIN are entirely natural and you can continue making your normal facial expressions.

What can BOTOX treat?

BOTOX, as well as XEOMIN, can treat all kinds of issues related to aging. It’s time to consider these FDA-approved injections if you have:

  • Frown lines between your eyebrows
  • Smile lines around your mouth
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes
  • Forehead lines and wrinkles

Dr. Agosto tailors your BOTOX and XEOMIN treatment plan based on your own skin care needs, and she might be able to help improve the appearance of additional skin concerns, too.

Is BOTOX permanent?

No, botulinum injections like BOTOX and XEOMIN aren’t permanent, although results can last for months on end. In most cases, men and women report having visibly smoother and younger-looking skin for up to four months. Once your BOTOX or XEOMIN injections start wearing off, it’s perfectly safe to have your treatment repeated.

Are BOTOX injections painful?

Not at all. Some men and women explain that they feel a small prick or slight burning sensation in the beginning, but not pain. Since BOTOX and XEOMIN injection treatments are quick and last only a few minutes, any discomfort you do feel is very short lived.

Dr. Agosto sometimes recommends applying an over-the-counter topical numbing cream before heading into your appointment if you’re worried about pain from needles. This way, by the time you get to the office of Heights Rheumatology and Esthetics, your treatment area is numb and you shouldn’t feel a thing.

Since BOTOX and XEOMIN injections are quick and virtually pain-free, you can easily schedule your appointment at Heights Rheumatology and Esthetics during your lunch break. Book your visit either online or over the phone.
