Botulinum toxin, also known as BOTOX, is an injectable formula typically used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes along with many “off-label” uses. It works by reducing muscle movement in the treated area, which relaxes the skin and smooths fine lines on the surface.

BOTOX exploded onto the market with FDA approval in the early 2000s, and non-surgical treatment of wrinkles hasn’t been the same since. It has become one of the most popular injectables, with millions of treatments delivered over the last 15 to 20 years.


How does BOTOX work?

The botulinum toxin inside of BOTOX works by temporarily paralyzing the muscle at the injection site. Once the muscle stops moving, the entire area relaxes and creases in the skin smooth out with the lack of movement. It can be used for:

  • Crow’s feet on the on the sides of your eyes
  • Glabellar lines, or frown lines in between the eyebrows
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Prominent neck bands

BOTOX also has many off-label cosmetic and medical applications. Talk to Dr. Brzowski about your concerns, and he will determine if the BOTOX formula can help.

Is there downtime after BOTOX?

Little to no downtime is needed after BOTOX injections. The injections can be completed in less than an hour, and you will not need to miss work after your BOTOX treatment. BOTOX is well-tolerated, and some patients may experience slight redness or swelling near the injection site. These symptoms will dissipate quickly, and you will begin to see results as soon as a few days following the procedure.

FAQ's

Are BOTOX injections painful?

Generally, BOTOX injections are not considered painful. We use a topical anesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable. The injections are typically compared to any other vaccination, shot, or getting blood drawn. Any slight pinch or pain will quickly go away once the procedure is complete.

How long will my results last?

Most patients will notice smoothing of wrinkles and general improvement of the treated area after two to four days. The results will continue to improve for up to two weeks following your treatment, and then the results will typically last between three and six months. Treatments can be repeated as necessary to maintain your smooth, youthful look.

Are BOTOX injections safe?

Yes, BOTOX injections are safe. As with any treatment or procedure, there are some risks. Dr. Brzowski takes the utmost care in determining if you are a good candidate for BOTOX and mitigating any risk. Your comprehensive consultation will help us get to know you better and determine the best course of action for your cosmetic goals.
