Botox Q & A

Belle Sante Med Spa

What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® is a purified liquid form of a bacteria called botulinum toxin. It’s been called a miracle cosmetic because, when injected into facial muscles, it eliminates crow’s feet and frown lines in your face for several months at a time.

Millions of people get Botox injections each year to smooth out these fine lines and wrinkles, as well as those around the eyes and between their eyebrows.

How does Botox eliminate crow’s-feet and frown lines?

To understand how Botox works, you need to understand that your smile and frown lines are a natural result of aging.

When you smile or frown, you’re continually using facial muscles that contract and expand. Doing this thousands of times over several years causes facial lines to appear. Not only that but as you age, you don’t have as much collagen in your skin to keep it plump and hydrated.

Botox injections block the nerves that signal the muscles in your face to move when you smile or frown. Because your nerves are blocked, they can’t signal the muscles in your face, stopping and reversing the wrinkle formation process.

With Botox, you’ll have smooth, beautiful skin again.    

Where is Botox injected?

Belle Santé Med Spa aestheticians inject Botox in targeted muscles on the sides of either eye and also in particular muscles between the eyebrows. Before the injections, your aesthetician answers all of your questions and shows you before and after photos.

They insert the Botox using a very small needle, and it’s over in a few seconds, so you won’t feel much discomfort. Your aesthetician gives you post-procedure instructions and asks you to schedule a check-up to view results.

Is Botox safe?

Botox is FDA-approved, as it’s been studied extensively: There are over 400 peer-reviewed articles in medical journals on Botox, and it’s used in 78 countries. Because it blocks the nerves, it’s also used to calm neck spasms, overactive bladder, chronic migraine, eye twitches, and lazy eye.

As with any other medical treatment or prescription, some people shouldn’t receive it. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding shouldn’t get Botox. Belle Sante Med Spa aestheticians review your medical history and determine if you’re a good candidate.

When will I see results?

In about two weeks you’ll see changes. Results last between three to six months. You may like your results so much that Botox becomes a periodic event on your schedule.
