Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

The way you feel about your appearance affects your self-confidence, which influences your overall health and well-being. That’s why the Wellness and Surgery team offers Botox injections to help you look and feel your best.

Botox is a well-established treatment for dynamic wrinkles, which occur naturally around your eyes and mouth and between your brows. Dynamic wrinkles appear when muscles contract. 

Botox temporarily relaxes these muscles, causing the lines to disappear so your skin looks younger and smoother.

The team also offers dermal fillers to help improve your skin’s appearance. Dermal fillers treat facial wrinkles, but in a different way. Fillers contain an injectable material that restores lost volume to your face and lips. Dermal fillers can plump your lips, soften lines around your nose and mouth, and reduce the appearance of acne scars.

What aesthetic concerns does Botox address?

Botox injections and cosmetic services at Wellness and Surgery treat many common aesthetic concerns, such as:

  • Double chin
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Facial wrinkles
  • Marionette lines around the mouth
  • Thin lips
  • Fine lines around the mouth
  • Sunken cheeks


Additionally, Botox is FDA-approved to treat medical conditions like chronic migraines and excessive sweating.

Who is a good candidate for Botox?

Cosmetic services like Botox may be right for you if aspects of your appearance cause you to feel self-conscious or less than happy and you want to avoid surgery. 

What happens at a Botox appointment?

The Wellness and Surgery team first discusses your particular concerns and desired outcome during your consultation. Then, they create a customized cosmetic treatment plan just for you.

Depending on your needs, they may recommend various injectable treatments to achieve the results you desire. During your Botox appointment, you can expect high-quality service from an experienced physician.

Botox injections can cause mild side effects like redness, swelling, and soreness, but these resolve in a few days. Your injection may also contain a numbing medicine to reduce discomfort.

After your appointment, you can return to normal activities right away. You may require multiple Botox injections, spaced several weeks apart, in order to maintain and achieve your results.
