How It Works
Botox® is an injectable compound which when injected into a specific area binds itself to receptors within the targeted muscle. This process decreases the ability of the muscle to contract and thus diminishes the visibility of the wrinkle that would form when the muscle would otherwise contract.

What is Botox®?
Botox® is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines and wrinkles. Botox® successfully treats wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction such as frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases and neckbands.
Is Botox® Right For Me?
Botox® is for patients who are looking to temporarily treat moderate-to-severe fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces or “quiets” the muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form.
Where Can Botox® be Used?
Botox® successfully treats wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction; such as frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases, neckbands, and wrinkles around the mouth. Botox® can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).
What is a Botox ® Treatment Like?
Using a fine needle, Botox® is injected into muscles to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to the injection, your physician may choose to numb the area with an ice pack and patients might feel a slight stinging with the injection. The entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the office with minimal downtime. Side effects associated with the injection include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising. In order to further minimize patient downtime, please remove the following items from your diet and lifestyle one week prior to treatment:
- Vitamin E
- Omega 3 Fish Oils
- Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Advil, etc.
- Green Tea
How Long Does Botox® Last?
Visible results have been shown to last up to 3-5 months. Your own results may vary, so be sure to talk to your provider about what you can expect and when to schedule your next med spa appointment.
As the botulinum toxin becomes less potent over time, your muscles will begin to react, and your wrinkles will gradually return. You may need to schedule another round of injections every few months depending on your desired results.
How Many Botox® Injections Does It Take to See Results?
The number of injections you will need depends on several factors, including your age, facial structure, the location of your wrinkles, and how much you want to reduce the signs of aging. If you want to get rid of your crow’s feet, it usually takes two to three injections to see full results. If you want to get rid of wrinkles above your eyebrows, you may need five or more injections.
You should notice results within the next few days, but it may take up to a full week in some cases. Keep this in mind if you plan on getting Botox in Phoenix leading up to a special event, such as a wedding or photoshoot. You will want to schedule your injections at least a week ahead of time to make sure the results will be noticeable.
What are the Risks of Using Botox®?
While Botox is perfectly safe to use, you need to consult with a licensed medical provider before undergoing the process to make sure you are a good candidate for the treatment.
There are few to no risks associated with Botox, especially when administered to otherwise healthy individuals. You should be able to resume regular activities after the procedure is complete. However, it’s important that you avoid rubbing or massaging the affected area as it could cause the botulinum toxin to move to another part of your face, which could lead to temporary facial numbness or dropping.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, botulinum toxin injections are generally safe, but possible complications may include:
- Bruising and pain at the injection site
- Flu-like symptoms
- Temporary facial weakness or drooping
In the rare event that these toxins spread to other parts of your body, you may experience breathing problems, trouble swallowing, muscle weakness, and slurred speech as these toxins temporarily numb parts of your head and throat. However, these side effects are extremely mild and rare, and none of them are considered life-threatening.
