Botox: Frequently Asked Questions


We asked our medical team to outline some questions they receive from patients about Botox and the following are the three most frequently asked questions by our patients!

What exactly is Botox?

Botox is a protein, made from Botulinum toxin, which is the bacterium produced by Clostridium botulinum. It is administered in small doses to areas of concern in order to temporarily smooth out the skin and prevent further wrinkles from appearing. Regular injections of Botox can cause certain muscles to move less frequently, this can lead to smoother skin and the injection of less Botox over time. This treatment is quick, minimally invasive and requires no downtime.

How long does Botox last?

As a general rule, Botox usually lasts about 3-4 months, although, it usually varies from person to person. There are a couple of factors that will help to determine how long it will last for you. If you are known for your high metabolism, or participate in a lot of physical activity, you may experience the ageless effect of Botox wearing off a bit sooner. If you notice that your body has a slower metabolism, you may experience the effects lasting even longer than 3-4 months.

What does Botox do to your face?

In order for your face to move, your nerves send signals to your muscles. When Botox is injected into these muscles, it stops them from contracting. It causes extreme facial movements to relax and soften. This is why Botox is most commonly injected into the lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), forehead lines and frown lines. It softens certain facial movements, helping to smooth out your skin and ultimately prevent future wrinkles from appearing.
