Botox Q & A

How does Botox work?

The FDA has approved Botox, an injectable, wrinkle-reducing medication, for treating lines and creases in some of the most noticeable areas of the face. Botox, which is a purified neurotoxin, relaxes the contraction of muscles that cause wrinkles when you smile, frown, or squint. The repeated action of these muscles etches lines into your face and makes you appear older than you feel.

Botox is well-researched and highly effective. Millions of people have sought Botox injections to give them a more youthful appearance, and you can also take advantage of the treatment at Elite Wellness Weight Loss.

Where is Botox effective in reducing wrinkles?

Botox is effective in treating active lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. These include:

  • Smile lines between the eyebrows
  • Horizontal forehead creases
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes

When you receive treatment from the expert injectors at Elite Wellness Weight Loss, you achieve a more youthful appearance without looking as if you’ve had work done. Your expressions soften but don’t appear frozen or like you’ve had “work” done.

Who is a candidate for Botox treatments?

Botox is effective for just about anyone 18 years and older. Although younger people don’t have a lot of wrinkles to smooth out, you might opt to start injections early as a preventive measure. When the muscle action is softened, fewer wrinkles and lines form as you get older.

What should I expect during Botox injections?

The entire procedure takes less than 20 minutes. Your provider cleans your face thoroughly and locates the relevant muscles to receive the injections. You feel a pinch as the solution is injected using a fine needle, but most people find the procedure quite tolerable. If you’re concerned about discomfort, request a topical numbing cream prior to the injections.

After treatment, you go right back to all your daily activities. There’s no need for downtime.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

Botox injections are effective for 3-4 months. Then you can receive retreatments to maintain your new look. Because Botox is offered at an affordable price, you can visit Elite Wellness Weight Loss regularly without breaking the bank.
