Considering BOTOX®? 4 FAQ to Help You, Hackensack, New Jersey

When it comes to cosmetic skin care treatments, BOTOX® is among the most popular in the United States. Though widely beloved for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, not many people know how it works. If you’re considering services to reverse the effects of aging, you may have many questions about this option. Below, you’ll find a handful of frequently asked questions that will help you determine whether this product is right for you.

4 FAQ About BOTOX®

What is it?

BOTOX is a cosmetic skin care product approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It’s designed to reverse the signs of aging, including forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown or smile lines.

It is made from botulinum toxin, which occurs naturally in the bacterium clostridium botulinum, and temporarily paralyzes wrinkles.

How old do you have to be to use it?

BOTOX is appropriate for anyone over the age of 18, and you don’t have to wait until you notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to start using it. Many people in their 20s and 30s seek out these treatments as preventative measures. 

skin careWhat does treatment entail?

During your initial appointment, your skin care professional will analyze your face and map out the target areas. Treatment involves the injection of the product directly into visible fine lines and wrinkles.

Though the number of injections depends on your goals, the average treatment usually involves approximately 20 units and takes less than 10 minutes. 

How long do results last?

You’ll start to notice the results about 24 to 48 hours after treatment. These typically last approximately four months, meaning you’ll likely only need injections two or three times per year to maintain the youthful look.
