Botox® Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable medication best known for its cosmetic applications in aesthetic skin care. Yet, it has other applications in dermatology beyond minimizing wrinkles and creased skin. The active component in Botox, which is called botulinum toxin, temporarily stops motor neuron impulses to prohibit specific muscle movements. 

It’s always crucial to go to a trustworthy professional if you want to get Botox. Your injector at Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center has in-depth training using injectables and has perfected the injection technique. This helps you avoid unwanted consequences like a frozen facial expression, which can come from misplaced injections. 

Your injector at Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center carefully plans your treatment ahead of time after discussing your goals during a consultation. 

What does Botox treat?

Botox is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the country, but it’s also a treatment for some conditions in medical dermatology. Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center uses the injections for both medical and cosmetic purposes. 

Well-placed Botox injections can treat:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Worry lines around your mouth
  • Neck lines
  • Migraine headaches
  • Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Chronic back or jaw pain
  • Muscle spasms

There is no downtime with Botox and little to no discomfort with the injections. You can expect the results to last up to six months, depending on the injection areas and purposes. 

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center welcomes you to the office for a pre-Botox consultation. Your injector discusses your goals with you and makes sure you understand how Botox can help you achieve them. They also ensure your goals align with Botox and that it’s the best fit among other treatment options.

Candidates for Botox injections must be in good physical health and have realistic expectations for what the procedure can do. You’ll have to hold off on getting Botox if you’re currently pregnant or nursing, and you should consider other treatments if you have a neuromuscular disorder.

If Botox isn’t the best possible fit to help you reach your goals, your provider can help you explore other options at Advanced Laser and Skin Cancer Center.
