What is Botox?

Nuerotoxins are injectable cosmetics that helps your muscles relax, relieves tension, and make your skin appear significantly smoother.

Botox received FDA approval for cosmetic treatment in 2002. In the 20 years since, it’s become one of America’s most popular minimally invasive procedures.

How do I prepare for Botox?

The team at Ross Dermatology administers Botox on an outpatient basis. 

Before undergoing treatment, let your specialist know about your health history, including any allergies or underlying medical conditions you have. Your specialist might also ask you to take blood thinners, like aspirin, before the appointment to reduce your risk of bruising.

What areas of the body respond to Botox?

At Ross Dermatology, the team uses Botox to minimize the appearance of forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet (wrinkles on the outer edges of your eyes). 

The number of injections you receive depends on your goals, the severity of the wrinkles, and their effect on your quality of daily life.

What happens during a Botox appointment?

At Ross Dermatology, a Botox appointment takes between 20-30 minutes. On the day of your visit, leave any jewelry at home and don’t wear any makeup. When you arrive at the office, your Ross Dermatology specialist examines your skin and develops a custom treatment plan. 

They rub a topical anesthetic into your skin, which reduces the risk of swelling and discomfort. Then, your specialist administers a series of Botox injections. After the injections, the team moves you to a recovery room for observation.

What is recovery like after Botox treatment?

After Botox treatment, it’s normal to experience minor bruising and discomfort. Avoid rubbing or applying pressure to the treated area for several hours, as it can spread into other parts of your body. There’s no downtime, so you can return to work and other activities immediately. 

When will I experience results from Botox?

The time it takes to experience results from Botox depends on various factors, including your age and the severity of the wrinkles. Some people experience noticeable results within a day or two of treatment, but it typically takes several weeks*.

To maintain your results, schedule routine checkups every few months. The team at Ross Dermatology can provide touchups, ensuring your skin looks its best.
