Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable medication that dermatologists use for medical and cosmetic purposes. It contains a neuromodulator that inhibits specific muscle movements by preventing the motor nerve impulses that cause them. 

Involuntary muscle movements are the cause of an array of treatable concerns, including hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and dynamic wrinkles. Both of these are among the concerns that Botox can effectively treat. 

During your initial consultation for Botox at The Dermatology Center of Worcester, the team evaluates you and discusses your goals. They make sure you can safely get Botox considering your health status before planning your injections.

What can Botox do?

Botox has numerous purposes, but its most common use is its ability to treat dynamic wrinkles. This is a specific type of wrinkle that shows up in places where your skin creases when you make facial expressions. Botox isn’t limited to treating wrinkles, and there are other ways you can use it too. 

The Dermatology Center of Worcester uses Botox to treat:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines 
  • Forehead lines
  • Chin creases
  • Hyperhidrosis

Additionally, Botox has the ability to treat muscle spasms like cervical dystonia as well as chronic migraines and bladder dysfunction. 

What should I expect after getting Botox injections?

Immediately after leaving the clinic, you’re free to return to school, work, and daily errands. You should be careful to avoid rubbing your face as this can push the Botox around and into other muscles. While you won’t see the full results of your Botox injections right away, you can expect them to appear just one or two days post-treatment. 

How long do the results of Botox injections last?

Botox injections give you noticeable results that you can enjoy for a significant time period. The longevity of Botox results varies based on where you place the injections, but generally, cosmetic Botox lasts for three to six months. The team at The Dermatology Center of Worcester can fill you in on how long your results might last according to your treatment goals. 

Once the results of Botox fade, you can decide whether you want to visit The Dermatology Center of Worcester for another round of injections. If you’re satisfied with your original Botox results, the team can treat you in the same way again.
