Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable prescription treatment made from a highly purified form of botulinum toxin A. Dermatologists have used Botox safely and effectively since 1989 to smooth out wrinkles such as:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Crow’s feet

 

Botox is also FDA-cleared to treat hyperhidrosis in women and men who are over the age of 18. Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which you sweat so much that it lowers your quality of life.

How does Botox smooth my wrinkles?

One of the expert dermatologists injects Botox into the dynamic muscles that cause your wrinkles. Dynamic muscles continually press your skin into folds and creases. By slowing or stopping the muscles from contracting, your skin can smooth out again.

How long does Botox take to get rid of my wrinkles, and how long does it last?

Botox settles into your dynamic muscles within minutes. You may start to see your wrinkles smooth out within a few days. However, it can take up to two weeks before you see your final results.

Botox calms down these muscles for about 3-4 months. Talk to your Manhattan Dermatology team about scheduling regular touch-ups with Botox.

What happens when I get Botox treatment for wrinkles?

Botox is a simple, quick therapy that your Manhattan Dermatology doctor performs in about 10 minutes per area. You may have a little swelling after your treatment, but you should be able to return to all of your normal activities within 24 hours.

Can Botox be combined with other anti-aging treatments?

Botox works well with most other anti-aging treatments, including lasers and injectable fillers. Combining effective therapies such as Botox, lasers, dermal fillers, and chemical peels are often the best way to address aging.

How can I use Botox to control excessive sweating?

Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition. Botox controls excessive sweating in your:

  • Forehead
  • Armpits
  • Palms
  • Soles of your feet

 

If you’ve been diagnosed with hyperhidrosis, your Botox treatments may be covered by your insurance.
