Botox Q&A

by Ronald Jurzyk, MD

Can BOTOX® be used on all my wrinkles and lines?

No, BOTOX® is only used on dynamic wrinkles, those lines that form when you make a facial expression like smiling or frowning, including crow's feet, forehead lines and frown lines that form between your eyebrows. In some cases, it may also be injected around the mouth area to treat so-called “smoker's lines.” Static wrinkles – wrinkles that form as a result of age-related changes and sun damage – need to be treated with filler products.

How does BOTOX® work?

When we make facial expressions, the nerves in the face send signals to the brain which in turn “tells” the muscles to move. These movements form lines which, over time, can become very pronounced. BOTOX® is a neuromuscular agent that works by blocking the signals from the brain to the muscles so muscles aren't “told” to contract and lines don't form.

How often will I need to have BOTOX® injections to keep my wrinkles at bay?

The effects of BOTOX® last between four and six months, and many patients report having regular treatments significantly softens lines and wrinkles so they can wait longer between treatments without losing the effect.

Will BOTOX® treatments hurt?

BOTOX® is administered using a very fine needle so discomfort is minimized. Once treatment is over, you may feel some mild discomfort as you would with any injection, as well as temporary redness or swelling which will resolve soon afterward.

Can I have BOTOX® with other treatments?

Yes, many women and men opt to have BOTOX® in combination with fillers to treat both dynamic and static wrinkles or with lasers or other skin rejuvenation procedures for an all-over effect similar to a “mini-facelift” - but without the incisions, long recovery period or higher cost of surgery.
