Botox Q & A

What is Botox® and how does it work?

Botox is a popular wrinkle-smoothing injectable that softens lines caused by expression. As a neuromodulator, Botox targets the nerves that cause muscle contractions beneath the skin. 

The medication interferes with the nerve signals, which temporarily paralyzes the muscle and prevents contractions. The skin on top of the muscle relaxes, allowing it to appear smoother and younger.

What areas can Botox treat?

Botox primarily targets lines in the upper half of the face, where you’re most expressive. Common types of wrinkles Botox can address include:

  • Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
  • Forehead lines
  • Glabellar lines (between the eyebrows)
  • Bunny lines (on the nose)
  • Marionette lines (around the mouth)
  • Smoker’s lines (vertical lip lines)
  • Horizontal neck bands

Botox is also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, under the armpits.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Botox needles are fine and small for minimal discomfort. The team may also apply a topical numbing cream before your treatment to ensure a comfortable experience. New Elite Medical Clinic of California has multiple pain treatments for individuals who are sensitive to pain or nervous around needles.

I’m getting Botox. What can I expect?

Botox injections only take a few minutes, making it the perfect lunchtime treatment. After discussing your concerns and mapping out your injection sites, the team applies a topical numbing anesthetic. Then, they inject the medication. You may experience mild bruising, swelling, and redness at the injection sites, but these effects typically subside quickly.

Results usually take up to seven days to appear and last for about three to six months. You can return to New Elite Medical Clinic of California for maintenance treatments to extend your results.

Sharen performed a thread lift for my lower face jowls/ chin area. I thought that I may need filler to improve this area, but Sharen recommend doing a thread lift instead. After the procedure, my lower face looks lifted and I am very happy with the results. Thank you very much!
