Botox Q & A




What is Botox?

Botox® is a neuromodulator treatment that works by relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles. It was FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2002 and is now the most popular temporary wrinkle relaxer worldwide.

Where in my face can I get Botox injections?

There are three main areas for Botox injections in the face:

  • Glabellar lines: the lines between the eyebrows
  • Lateral canthal lines: also called crow’s feet, the lines at the corner of your eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines: the long above-brow lines spanning your forehead

If you need wrinkle reduction somewhere else, ask your Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics care provider about the area you’re concerned about. Botox can sometimes be used in other areas, such as the neck lines, but in other cases, a noninvasive treatment like Ultherapy® is a better fit.

When does Botox take effect?

Botox takes effect very quickly. You may see results within 24 hours, in fact.

How long does Botox last?

Botox can last for up to four months. Exactly how long it lasts in your body depends on how you metabolize the product, but most patients get at least three months of wrinkle correction from a Botox treatment.

How does Botox combine with fillers?

Botox and fillers are a great match. In fact, many Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics patients get liquid facelifts. A liquid facelift smooths, contours, and enhances your entire face using a combination of Botox and fillers like Juvéderm®. It’s a great noninvasive way to get beautiful, natural-looking rejuvenation.

Will Botox make me look frozen or fake?

Looking frozen or fake is a major concern of many patients, and it’s definitely a good reason to use caution when choosing your treatment provider. If an inexperienced or improperly trained care provider injects Botox, it can leave you with a permanently startled expression, or even the inability to move your forehead at all.

The care providers at Salinas Valley Medical Aesthetics have extensive training in cosmetic injections. With their long history of expert care, the skilled injectors know exactly how to give you the completely natural-looking results you want.
