Botox Q & A

Botox® or Botulinum toxin, commonly referred to as botulinum neurotoxin, is a medical-grade injectable utilized for cosmetic purposes to diminish signs of aging, including wrinkles and fine lines. By relaxing muscles associated with lines formed by repetitive facial expressions, Botox effectively smoothes treated skin. Additionally, botulinum toxin has medical applications in treating specific muscle conditions.The procedure is uncomplicated and yields impressive anti-aging results without downtime. All Botox injections are administered by Dr. Kahan.

In addition to Botox, Dr. Kahan also offers other injections such as Xeomin® and Dysport®.

Botox injections are renowned for their primary role in reducing the visibility of facial wrinkles, but their applications extend beyond cosmetic enhancements. Botox is also utilized to address various medical conditions, including an overactive bladder, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), neck spasms, cervical dystonia, and lazy eye. Additionally, these injections may aid in preventing chronic migraines.Opting for Botox at SheMD offers several advantages, including:

  • Diminished laugh, smile, and frown lines
  • Reduction of forehead lines
  • Firmer, smoother, and more lifted skin
  • Decreased appearance of crow’s feet
  • Enhanced self-confidence
  • A more youthful-looking appearance

Choosing Botox comes without the need for pain, surgery, or downtime, making it a convenient and effective option.

Dr. Kahan initiates a thorough discussion encompassing your medical history, treatment preferences, desired outcomes, and goals. An examination of your skin in targeted areas precedes the customization of a Botox treatment personalized to meet your specific needs and objectives.In addition to Botox, you may also find that fillers are a suitable option for you.

Prior to administering Botox injections, your provider cleanses the designated skin area. Using a small needle, botulinum toxin is injected beneath your skin into targeted tissues. Each injection typically takes just a minute or two, and your provider may perform multiple injections during each treatment session.

Following a Botox treatment, the treated areas may experience temporary tenderness, swelling, or redness. It’s advisable to refrain from touching the treated area during the healing process.Over the next few days, as the effects of Botox become apparent, you’ll observe more youthful-looking skin with reduced signs of aging.

While Botox effects typically last around 3-5 months, individual responses may vary. Receiving repeat injections ensures long-lasting outcomes.
