Q: What is BOTOX®?
Popular with celebrities and public figures who want to reduce the appearance of aging, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription neurotoxin that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults.
Q: How does BOTOX® work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable prescription neurotoxin that targets one of the causes of frown lines and crow’s feet — the constant muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Dr. Gertzman will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity.
Q: Will BOTOX® make me look like I’ve had work done?
It is important to talk to Dr. Gertzman about the results you want from treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy like Dr. Gertzman.
Dr. Gertzman has even published a book physicians reference when learning how to inject BOTOX®. That’s right — she literally wrote the book on how to get great BOTOX® results!
Q: Does BOTOX® treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a sting. Dr. Gertzman will use ice to numb the area.
Q: How long does the treatment take?
Dr. Gertzman will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial examination to determine the appropriate number of units for you. Some patients require more or less than others. The actual injection process takes just a few minutes!
Q: When will I see results?
You may notice results within 7 to 10 days for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 3-5 months.
Q: How many injections will I receive?
Because each area is different, it can take anywhere from 6-12 injections. Crow’s feet require 6 (3 for each side), and about 6 injections each for the forehead and between the eyebrows.
Q: How long is the recovery time after BOTOX®?
There is minimal downtime with this treatment, but we do advise patients not to lie down or look down for 4-6 hours after BOTOX® to avoid any drooping.
Q: What the side effects of BOTOX®?
Side effects from BOTOX® injections are rare. Patients have experienced eyelid drooping and swelling. Other possible side effects include: dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems; double vision; blurred vision; decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions.
