Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

botoxBotox is an injectable neuromodulator that erases and smooths out wrinkles and creases on your forehead and around your eyes. 

As long as you’re over 18, you can use Botox as part of your prejuvenation or rejuvenation strategy. Since Botox’s FDA-approval in 1989, dermatologists, cosmetic surgeons, and aestheticians have used it to treat:

  • Frown lines (the 11s between the brows)
  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles
  • Bunny lines (on the nose)
  • Crow’s feet

Because of their expertise with using Botox and other injectable Allergan® products, such as Juvéderm® dermal fillers, the team at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center was named a Black Diamond Provider for their effective, natural-looking, non-surgical anti-aging treatments.

How does Botox work?

The active ingredient in Botox is a highly purified form of OnabotulinumtoxinA, a neurotoxin and protein that blocks nerve signals. 

When your expert Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center provider administers Botox through a fine, small needle, they direct the neuromodulator to the dynamic muscles that make expressions such as frowning and squinting.

Once Botox settles into the dynamic muscle and blocks signals to the nerves, the muscle relaxes. When you try to grimace and make an extreme expression, you can no longer do so. When your muscles stop pressing your skin into furrows and lines, those lines gradually smooth out.

Within days to a couple of weeks after your Botox treatment, your skin looks smooth and wrinkle-free again. If you have very deep creases between your eyebrows, however, your provider may recommend filling them in with Juvéderm.

Does Botox make my face look frozen or unnatural?

The experienced team at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center has the training to administer the right amount of Botox to quiet down your muscles but not paralyze them entirely. 

While you won’t be able to frown or squint deeply, you can still make attractive and perfectly natural expressions. The team at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center is renowned for their skill at creating subtle facial rejuvenation.

How long does Botox last?

Each Botox treatment lasts for up to six months. Your Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center provider schedules your 15-30 minute touch-ups in advance and at your convenience – you can come in during your lunch hour – so you don’t have to worry about your wrinkles reappearing.  

If you have other signs of aging you’d like to remedy, your Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center expert may suggest combining Botox with Juvéderm dermal fillers for a liquid facelift.
