What is Botox?
BOTOX® cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles*. Botox is a purified protein that is injected into the muscles to smooth and eliminate wrinkles and frown-lines*. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
How does Botox work?
One 10-minute treatment consists of a few tiny injections, and within days you can expect to see noticeably smoother, wrinkle-free skin that can last up to four months*. For many people, Botox can be a safe and easy way to get the beautiful, smooth skin you have always wanted!*
Why should I receive Botox?
Botox is a great way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles and is safe for both men and women.*
What areas of my face may I receive Botox?
Botox typically has the most effective results when injected in a patients forehead, frown lines between the eyes and crows feet*.
Will my face look stiff after Botox?
No,your face should not look stiff after Botox! Botox can be done in any amount depending on the outcome wanted*. At DreamBody, we believe that less Botox injected, is more. While it may be necessary to increase the frequency of injections with smaller doses, most patients should still see results without the loss of facial expression*.
How often should I have Botox injected?
Our medical staff will discuss all available options with you, but on an average basis, Botox can generally be injected every 3-4 months*. Injections may be spread out more, but at DreamBody we recommend a minimum of twice a year*.
Will I need recovery time with Botox?
After receiving Botox, it is recommended that you do not lay flat on your face when sleeping so that the area does not droop. Exercise should be eliminated for the day so that the Botox is not metabolized quicker than needed.
