Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is the No. 1 selling treatment of its kind in the United States and around the world. It’s a purified toxin that helps halt the muscle activity in your face that leads to wrinkling and creases. The results are temporary but can be maintained with regular treatments.

Botox is well-studied, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, and approved for use in 96 countries.

How does Botox work?

Botox is made from a purified toxin that targets the underlying cause of your lines and wrinkles. Dr. Springer strategically injects Botox into the muscles used in frowning, squinting, and raising the mid eyebrows. Botox temporarily reduces muscle activity so you notice a visible smoothing of existing lines on your face, and prevention of formation of further lines. The results are natural, as you can still be expressive and not look “frozen.”

Following Botox injections, you can go right back to your regular activities, as no downtime is required.

What areas can be treated with Botox?

Botox helps smooth out lines in the places on your face often most affected by expression. These include:

  • Lines between your eyebrows (forehead lines)
  • Lines around your eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Worry lines across that lie horizontally across your forehead

Botox delivers predictable, natural results. You’ll look just like you – but with fewer wrinkles and lines.

How soon will I see results from Botox and how long do they last?

Following Botox injections, you start to see results within one to two days, with full results appearing within one week. The softer look to your face persists for three to four months, after which you can have additional injections to maintain your more youthful, less-lined look.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Botox injections do require a fine needle, but the amount of medication injected is small and each injection is quite quick. Everyone tolerates the treatment well due to Dr. Springer’s gentle yet experienced touch.

Who should have Botox?

Anyone with wrinkles already, certainly. People who can make lines with their expressions that would be unsightly once permanently “engraved” upon the face should consider heading off wrinkles completely. We call it “pre-juvenation,” and it takes less Botox to prevent lines than it does to treat ones that have developed. Of course, men and women equally benefit from looking more rested and healthy.
