What is Botox?

Botox is a medication that contains a purified and safe neurotoxin made by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Botox works by temporarily stopping the transmission of nerve signals between the site of the injection to the brain. 

What does Botox treat?

Botox treats many conditions, from migraines to excessive underarm sweating. Peaks Medical and Urgent Care provides Botox for its most popular use: reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. 

Botox for cosmetic purposes addresses:

  • Crow’s feet that form at the outer corner of the eyes
  • Frown lines in between the eyebrows
  • Worry lines on the forehead

These types of wrinkles are dynamic wrinkles that form from repetitive facial expressions. When you frown or furrow your brow, your facial muscles create grooves that fold and crease the skin. Over time, the repeated folding creates more permanent etched-in lines.

Botox temporarily stops the facial muscle movement that causes the folding, giving your skin a chance to naturally relax and smooth out. 

What can I expect during Botox injections?

A medical professional at Peaks Medical and Urgent Care reviews what you can expect during your Botox injections at your consultation. Botox is a quick and relatively painless cosmetic treatment.

After cleaning your skin with an antiseptic agent, your provider carefully injects Botox into specific areas of your face. Total treatment time takes 30 minutes or less. 

What happens after Botox injections?

You can resume your normal activities after Botox injections at Peaks Medical and Urgent Care. You may notice red marks at the site of your injections, but you can use makeup to cover up the temporary side effects. 

The medical professionals at Peaks Medical and Urgent Care recommend you skip any strenuous activity for at least two hours after your Botox injections. 

You may see improvements in your look within 24 hours after your injections. However, it can take up to 30 days to see the full effects. Botox injections last three to four months, and you can repeat your injections as soon as you notice your wrinkles return.

Regular Botox injections help you maintain your youthful look and may prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
