Botox® Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription injection best known for smoothing out facial lines and wrinkles. At Avanity Advanced Aesthetics, Ms. Salarda uses Botox Cosmetic by Allergan Aesthetics for Botox injections.

Botox is the only FDA-approved treatment for temporarily reducing the appearance of moderate to severe:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead wrinkles

With Botox injections, Ms. Salarda gives you predictable and subtle results so you still look like you, only better. 

How does Botox work?

Botox works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that create the lines around your eyes and on your forehead. Every time you smile, squint, or frown, your facial muscles move, creating grooves that fold your skin. 

As you get older and your skin loses its natural strength and elasticity, the constant folding from facial expressions creates permanent lines and wrinkles.

With her expert skills, Ms. Salarda injects the Botox into specific areas of your facial muscles, temporarily reducing activity, giving your skin time to relax and smooth itself out. 

What happens during Botox injections?

Ms. Salarda takes a patient-centered approach to care and creates your personalized Botox injection treatment plan based on your skin needs and beauty goals. She uses a thin, tiny needle to inject the medication, which most people tolerate well. 

You need a few injections at each site to get the best results. However, Botox injections only take a few minutes, and you can go back to your usual day after your session.

You may notice some redness at the site of the injection, which you can cover up with makeup. Ms. Salarda recommends you delay any strenuous physical activity for up to two hours following your injections to reduce risk of bruising.

You may notice improvements in your look within 24 to 48 hours.

How long does Botox last?

Botox results vary, but your injections may keep your lines and wrinkles away for up to four months. Ms. Salarda recommends you schedule your next Botox session as soon as you see the effects wearing off.

Repeating your Botox treatments not only helps you maintain your more youthful look but may also prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
