Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a popular, widely used aesthetic treatment to smooth away facial wrinkles and lines. The FDA-approved injections use tiny amounts of a refined toxin called Clostridium botulinum.

This agent works by blocking the signal from your nerves to your facial muscles, minimizing the movements that cause wrinkles. Botox injections give your face a more youthful, relaxed appearance. Your wrinkles appear less noticeable and may virtually disappear — with no downtime or surgery.

What wrinkles does Botox treat?

Botox can temporarily block the movement of most muscles that cause wrinkles on your face. Dr. Saxena at Aveda Integrative Medical Center performs injections on your:

  • Frown lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet

In addition, if your eyebrows are sagging, Botox lifts them to give you a revitalized look.

What happens during Botox injections?

Dr. Saxena uses a needle that’s extremely thin to inject Botox. Injections generally aren’t painful. If anything, you’ll feel a quick, minor sting for only 30-45 seconds.

Each injection typically takes just a few minutes per area. The treatment requires no downtime, so you can get on with your day after you leave the Aveda Integrative Medical Center office.

Most patients see a vast improvement in the appearance of their wrinkles with just a single Botox treatment, although results vary. Your full results are noticeable within 48 hours or more.

How long does Botox last?

Botox treatments smooth away your wrinkles and fine lines for 3-4 months. After that, Dr. Saxena recommends coming back regularly for injections to maintain your more youthful appearance, which you can complement with Cryoskin to improve not only the appearance of your face but your body, too.

What are Cryoskin aesthetic treatments?

If you’ve been searching for a solution for a slimmer, more toned look without surgery, Cryoskin is a quick thermal treatment that destroys unwanted fat and reduces the look of cellulite. Cryoskin works by targeting your fat cells with therapeutic heat.

Treatments take only 28 minutes. You may notice results soon after your first treatment session is over. In general, you achieve full results about 15-21 days after treatment.

You can enjoy your slimmer look for several months, but typically need to see Dr. Saxena after six months to maintain your results.
