What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable, wrinkle-reducing medication that treats lines and creases in some of the most noticeable areas of the face.

Botox is derived from a purified neurotoxin and works temporarily to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles when you smile, frown, or squint. The repeated action of these muscles over the course of your life etches lines into your face that make you look older than you feel.

Botox is well-researched, having been approved for cosmetic use in 98 countries. Millions of people have sought Botox injections to give them a more youthful appearance.

Where is Botox effective in reducing wrinkles?

Botox is FDA-approved for use in the following areas:

  • Worry lines between the eyebrows

  • Horizontal forehead creases

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes

The medical professionals at Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics skillfully place the injections and offer just the right amount so you achieve a more youthful appearance without looking as if you’ve had work done. Your expressions soften but don’t appear frozen.

Who should consider Botox treatments?

Anyone 18 and older is eligible to receive Botox injections. Even if you’re younger and don’t have a lot of wrinkles to smooth out, early injections soften the intensity of your facial expressions and delay the development of wrinkles.


What should I expect during Botox injections?

A Botox injection session takes 20 minutes or less. Your injector cleans your face thoroughly and locates the relevant muscles at which to place the injections. You will feel pinches as the fine needle injects the Botox into key areas, but most people find the procedure quite tolerable. If you’re concerned about discomfort, request a topical numbing cream prior to the injections.


Do I need to schedule downtime following Botox injections?

You don’t need to change your schedule because of Botox injections — go right back to work or school following your appointment. You can also exercise and go about your daily chores. The procedure usually leaves no side effects. If you do have slight bruising or redness at the injection sites, you can use makeup to cover them up.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

Botox injections are effective for 3-4 months. Schedule additional appointments to maintain your new, more youthful look. The staff at Robert Andrews Laser & Medical Aesthetics can put you on a hassle-free schedule.
