Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for wrinkle reduction. Botox treats the following types of wrinkles.

  • Frown lines between your eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes
  • Forehead lines

Botox relaxes the muscles that you move when you frown, smile, or raise your forehead. This prevents skin wrinkling and smooths out existing wrinkles. Botox is a temporary treatment that may offer a great solution for wrinkles if you’re not interested in surgery.

What does Botox treatment feel like?

It’s a super fast treatment that takes only a few minutes in the Pinnacle Medical Group office. Your care provider may apply ice or a numbing cream before your injections if you need it, but the treatment is generally virtually painless.

The syringe for Botox injections is extremely small. You’ll feel small pricks, but many patients say it’s similar to a mosquito sting that fades immediately.

How many Botox injections do I need?

Generally, patients get a series of injections in the treatment area. Crow’s feet require injections in three areas around each eye, frown lines require five injections in the between-brow and above-brow areas, and forehead lines require five injections in your forehead muscle.

The number of units you need per injection site depends on the severity of your wrinkles. Generally, patients need at least 20-40 units per area for optimal wrinkle correction, but your care provider will tailor the treatment for you.

When does Botox start working?

You may see an improvement in your wrinkles in only 24 to 48 hours, but it varies by patient, so it may take less or more time for you.

How often do I need Botox to stay wrinkle free?

Most patients get up to four months of wrinkle improvement from Botox. To stay wrinkle free, plan your Botox maintenance appointments at Pinnacle Medical Group before the previous treatment has worn off.

Over time, you may need Botox treatments less often. Some patients who’ve gotten Botox regularly for years may only need maintenance treatments once or twice a year. Your Pinnacle Medical Group care provider will help you find the ideal treatment intervals to maintain your wrinkle-free look.

Does Botox work with dermal fillers?

Absolutely! A liquid facelift that includes both Botox and fillers is a very popular option. With this combination, you can smooth wrinkles, restore lost volume, and contour your face beautifully with no surgery needed.
