Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable aesthetic treatment that reduces the severity of wrinkles and facial lines. Botox, which comes from a natural botulinum toxin, prevents chemical messages sent by your facial nerves from getting to your muscles. Consequently, you can’t frown deeply or make other movements that highlight wrinkles.

Botox smooths out common aesthetic blemishes like moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes, and forehead lines. It’s been in use for over 30 years and has valuable medical applications as well as being an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment.

Why would I need Botox?

You might want to consider Botox injections if your facial lines and wrinkles cause you concern. Wrinkles are an inevitable aspect of the aging process, so you can’t avoid them. However, some people develop noticeable lines and wrinkles that they find unattractive.

People don’t all get wrinkles at the same age, either, so someone in their twenties might have deep forehead lines, while another person is only just getting a few mild wrinkles in their fifties.

Genetics is a critical factor in determining how you age, so if your parents or grandparents age well, you might too. Things that can accelerate aging include:

  • Excessive, repetitive sun exposure
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Chronic stress
  • Poor nutrition
  • Dehydration

As you get older, your body doesn’t produce as much collagen and elastin, the substances that give your skin its elasticity and keeps the underlying tissue plump. Your skin loosens, and lines and wrinkles develop.

The worst ones are on the parts of your face where the skin most often creases, like your forehead, the outside of your eyes, and the sides of your nose. Botox is an ideal solution to these problems.

What happens when I have Botox?

Botox injections typically take about 10 minutes, making it a convenient experience you can easily fit in at lunchtime. Before injecting the Botox, your Ayan Wellness provider does a facial analysis to select the best places for the injections and mark them.

Botox injections use tiny needles, so they cause minimal discomfort. You can also use an ice pack or apply a topical anesthetic to your face before having Botox injections for optimal comfort.

You should see results within the first day or two after Botox injections. The effects can vary but typically last about four months. To maintain the improvements, you should visit Ayan Wellness 3-4 times a year.
