What is Botox?
Botox is a brand of neuromodulator that has become synonymous with the treatment itself. What all neuromodulators do is limit the movement of muscles (for the sake of simplicity, neuromodulators will be referred to as Botox). Botox injections are effective as a wrinkle treatment because muscle movement causes the skin to crease, which can eventually lead to the permanent creases we all know as wrinkles. While Botox injections cannot remove existing wrinkles, limiting the movement of those muscles can prevent the deepening of existing wrinkles and the creation of new ones.

Frequently Asked Questions
Botox Injections Q&A
What are the potential side effects of Botox?
Common side effects may include:
- Muscle weakness near the injection site
- Trouble swallowing or Dry mouth
- Muscle stiffness, Headache, tiredness
- Blurred vision, puffy eyelids, dry eyes, drooping eyebrows
How long does Botox last?
In general, Botox lasts 3-4 months. There will certainly be patients for whom it lasts longer, in that 4-6 month range, or shorter, in that 2-month range. It is also common for first-timers to notice that it may not last as long initially, but it may last longer after the second treatment. The recommended treatment is once every three to four months. Nonetheless, if your facial muscles begin to train themselves to contract less, the period of time for each treatment may be extended longer than three or four months.
Am I a good candidate for Botox?
Botox is approved for patients who are 18 years and older. Most patients typically start using Botox at age 30, some even in their mid-20s, most experts agree that such patients are at a good age for preventative Botox. People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease should not use Botox. Since Botox doesn’t work for all wrinkles, you should consult with a doctor first.
How much does Botox cost?
The price of Botox varies depending on the practice, some charge a flat cost for each injection of the Botox Cosmetic, and other practices charge per “units” used in each treatment. The flat rates can cost between $300 and $1000 and per-unit rates are typically around $10-15 per unit. A consultation is always required for an exact price.
What should you avoid before Botox?
While there are no medication limitations to receiving Botox, it is strongly recommended to stop taking blood-thinning medication at least a week prior to your injection to reduce bleeding and bruising. Things to avoid would include: Alcohol, Aspirin, Advil, Excedrin, Vitamin E supplements and natural sources such as Fish oil, Ginseng and Gingko Bilbao. All pain medications are to be avoided except Tylenol.
Are fillers better than Botox?
Botox limits muscle movement which is effective for preventing and diminishing superficial lines and wrinkles. Fillers plump the skin and add volume, which can help to smooth out even the deepest forehead furrows and marionette lines. Depending on your goals, a combination of Botox and fillers can make the greatest impact on your appearance.
What happens if I stop my Botox top-ups?
By stopping your Botox top-ups, lines will come back. If you decide to discontinue your Botox injections, the muscles in your treated area will begin to function normally again – as will the ageing process.
