Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a substance derived from a naturally-occurring toxin. Botulinum toxin is harmful in its unrefined state, but after processing, it’s a safe, effective treatment for medical and aesthetic conditions.

Medical Botox treats disorders linked to muscle overactivity, including migraines, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), TMJ, and blepharospasm (eyelid twitches). Aesthetic Botox treats signs of aging, including moderate to severe crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.

These dynamic wrinkles form when you repeatedly make facial movements like frowning, smiling, and squinting. Botox prevents the nerves that control the muscles from communicating, smoothing your skin and reducing wrinkles.

Is Botox a good choice for me?

Botox is a good choice if you’re over 18 and your lines and wrinkles are causing distress, but you don’t want to commit to plastic surgery. However, it’s unsuitable for people with neuromuscular conditions, skin lesions such as cold sores near the injection sites, or anyone pregnant or breastfeeding.

Broadway Family Practice’s experienced providers ensure you know what Botox treatment involves and understand the risks and likely outcomes. It’s important to feel confident about Botox treatment and have realistic expectations.

In addition to Botox injections, Broadway Family Practice offers other aesthetic services like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), hair restoration, and medical-grade skincare. Your provider creates a custom treatment plan for you and your skin that combines aesthetic injections, medications, and skincare products that help care for your complexion and health.

What does having Botox involve?

Botox treatment consists of a series of injections into the face. Your Broadway Family Practice provider uses tiny needles, causing minimal discomfort. If you don’t like needles, applying numbing cream beforehand eliminates any sensation in the injection sites.

Your provider marks the precise points where you need injections to ensure a natural appearance following Botox treatment. They also measure the right amount of Botox to give you maximum wrinkle-smoothing without causing any adverse effects.

Renew your Botox injections every 3-4 months to maintain your improved appearance. Stopping Botox has no harmful effects; your wrinkles simply reappear.
