BOTOX® Q & A

Galleria Aesthetics

What wrinkles can Botox treat?

Facial wrinkles fall into two main categories: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles show even when your face is at rest, while dynamic wrinkles appear or become more obvious when you make a facial expression.

Botox treats dynamic wrinkles, which include:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines between your brows

Botox doesn’t treat wrinkles that result from sun damage or gravity. If you have a variety of different facial wrinkles, you may wish to combine Botox with injectable dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm.

How does Botox reduce wrinkles?

Botox uses small injections of highly purified botulinum toxin to relax the muscles that cause your dynamic wrinkles to appear.

Although Botox is among the most extensively studied cosmetic treatments available, several other brands produce similar botulinum toxin-based medicines to reduce wrinkles.

At Galleria Aesthetics, you have the option to choose from the following types of injections:

  • Botox
  • Dysport
  • XEOMIN

Who is a good candidate for Botox?

You may be a good candidate for Botox if you wish to reduce dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines. These injections aren’t recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.

What should I expect from a Botox treatment?

First, the knowledgeable and compassionate team at Galleria Aesthetics meets with you to discuss your cosmetic concerns and goals. During this consultation, they help you determine which treatment options are best suited to your individual needs and desired results.

All of the botulinum toxin injections at Galleria Aesthetics are quick, minimally invasive, and virtually painless.

Certified professional injector Melisa Crow administers a small amount of medicine with a very fine needle. Although most patients report minimal discomfort, anesthetic creams and cooling devices are available.

It typically takes four to five days to see the effects of Botox injections, although it may take up to two weeks to experience full results. These results generally last about three to six months. When you begin to see your wrinkles reappear, it’s time to schedule your next appointment.  

If you want to reduce moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines without surgery, call Galleria Aesthetics or book an appointment online today.
