What Is BOTOX?

Did you know that humans can make 21 different facial expressions? All of the little muscles in your face can tense up in different patterns to show that you’re happy, sad, scared, angry, or surprised! However, as they do so, they wear down the elasticity of the skin. In turn, this creates wrinkles and fine lines in your face that can make you look older than you are. Sun exposure, smoking, genetics, and other factors can cause wrinkles as well.

Fortunately, by injecting diluted botulinum toxin into the area, BOTOX can freeze those facial muscles in place. This helps them relax and release the fine lines they’re creating. BOTOX shots are administered in small doses into specific areas to target wrinkles, and each injection takes only about 5-10 minutes. Within five days to a few months, patients will begin to notice their wrinkles fading away!

Who Is a Good Candidate for BOTOX?

The best way to determine if you’re a candidate for BOTOX is to come see us for a consultation. Typically, if you are over 20 years old and do not have neuromuscular disease, are not pregnant, and do not have deep facial scars, you may be a candidate for BOTOX if you have:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Lines between your eyebrows
  • Horizontal lines on your forehead
  • Lines at the corners of your mouth
  • Smoker’s lines around the lips
  • Suffer from muscle spasms

Thanks to their years of advanced training and familiarity with the structures of the face, dentists are the logical choice for administering BOTOX. In fact, they’ve been doing so for over a decade now! If you have questions about BOTOX or would like to learn more about getting BOTOX injections, don’t hesitate to give us a call! We’ll be happy to walk you through the entire process so you can decide if it’s the best solution for you.


Is BOTOX Permanent?

In short, BOTOX will not be permanent, as you’ll likely need to get touchups after three to six months, depending on how long your results last. Within this time, you’ll be free to make the most of a more radiant and youthful look. If you want to maintain or preserve your amazing results, then you can get injections any number of times that you wish!

BOTOX results will only be temporary because the solution is a protein that will be broken down by your body over time. Several factors can affect how long your results will last, including metabolism, activity level, age, and your exposure to environmental toxins.

Does BOTOX Remove Wrinkles?

This will mostly depend on the underlying cause(s) for the wrinkles. BOTOX treatment is designed to block the signals between your nerves and your muscles, keeping them from contracting or tightening. This, in turn, relaxes and softens any wrinkles in the area. This solution is effective for conditions like crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and frown lines, but it will not alleviate wrinkles that have developed due to gravity or sun damage. In either case, BOTOX can assist in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and how they impact your look.

What Happens If I Stop BOTOX Injections?

Should you stop getting BOTOX injections regularly after years of undergoing the treatment, your fine lines and wrinkles will eventually present themselves again. That said, their return will be gradual and much slower compared to if you didn’t get BOTOX. You’ll still be able to enjoy a more youthful and vibrant appearance than if you never received injections. Since your facial muscles will start to work like normal, any wrinkles and fine lines will return. The duration that you’ll be able to still retain a more youthful look after not receiving injections will depend on the amount of time you’ve undergone the treatment along with your condition when first beginning BOTOX injections.

How Can I Prolong My BOTOX Injections?

To make the most of your BOTOX treatments, you’ll want to practice certain precautions. These can include:

  • Reducing stress levels: Stress can often cause pressure in the muscles typically targeted by BOTOX, which can make your results wear off quickly.
  • Avoiding sun damage: Too much sun exposure can create an inflammatory response in your body’s cells that can end up breaking down the BOTOX solution.
  • Moisturizing your skin: Lotions that consist of collagen and hyaluronic acid are particularly useful as they can help preserve more plump and healthy-looking skin.
  • Practicing low-intensity exercises: High-intensity workouts can heighten your metabolism, which can then break down BOTOX much quicker than you’d want. Stick with lower-intensity exercises to minimize this effect.
