Botox Q & A

Holland Dermatology

How does Botox smooth lines and wrinkles?

Botox® is unique in that it works beneath the surface of your skin to stop wrinkles where they start, at the muscle. Botox is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin that occurs in nature. When Amber injects it into specific areas above and between your eyebrows, or at the outer corners of your eyes, the solution temporarily paralyzes the muscles that lead to wrinkles.

You’ll still be able to make your usual facial expressions, but without the creases and lines that have seemingly etched into your skin over the years. With Botox, these signs of aging appear smoother and softer so you look refreshed, but not overdone.

How many Botox injections do I need to see results?

Dr. Drozdowski and Amber take an individualized approach to Botox injections depending on the patients needs. Typically, forehead lines respond well with just five injections into the muscles above your eyebrows across your forehead. For crow’s feet at the outer corners of your eyes, the typical treatment is three injections around the outside of each eye.

If you want to smooth vertical frown lines between your brows, Amber typically injects the Botox solution into five locations. Each injection is extremely precise, which is why you should only receive Botox injections from a PA or board-certified physician.

How soon after my appointment will I see a difference?

It doesn’t take long to see a noticeable difference after your Botox appointment. Most men and women notice a smoother appearance within the first 24-48 hours after receiving their injections. Results can last up to four months for moderate to severe lines.*

With just a few minutes in the office, and minimal downtime (if any at all), you can be on your way to a younger-looking face without much interruption to your daily routine. Many patients receive Botox injections a few times a year to maintain their desired look.
