Botox Q & A

How does Botox get rid of wrinkles?

Botox is a medical-grade injectable solution made up of a purified strain of a particular botulinum toxin. When Botox is injected into key muscles, it blocks cell signaling that forces those muscles to contract. This effect is beneficial because many types of facial folds, grooves, and wrinkles develop when muscles twitch and move while making frequent facial expressions.

But Botox only relaxes targeted muscles. This allows all of the surrounding muscles to move as they normally would, so you can continue to make your regular facial expressions. You won’t have to worry about a frozen or unnatural appearance with Botox.

What can Botox treat?

Botox continues to remain at the forefront of aesthetic injectables because it’s proven to be effective for relaxing muscles and softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles all over your face. You can receive Botox injections to decrease:

  • Forehead lines and wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet near your eyes
  • Frown lines between your eyebrows

At Integrated Dermatology of Waterbury, Dr. Cheng can customize your Botox injectable package and include dermal fillers if needed. Dermal fillers, such as Restylane®, add volume to your skin, contour your features, and further reduce the effects of aging to give you an entirely more youthful appearance.

When does Botox wear off?

Botox enhances your appearance and provides long-lasting benefits. Dr. Cheng finds that most Botox clients experience smoother, younger-looking skin for about four months after getting Botox. Results are often even longer if you have finer lines or wrinkles or if you choose to pair your Botox injectables with dermal fillers.

Because Botox is a heavily tested FDA-approved injectable, you can feel confident that your aesthetic treatment is going to be safe and effective. Once your Botox wears off, you can come back to Integrated Dermatology of Waterbury for another treatment. Botox visits take about 10 minutes and require no downtime, so you can immediately return to your regular activities.
