Botox is a cosmetic injectable made with active ingredient onabotulinum toxin A and stabilizer proteins. The toxin temporarily reduces movement in treated muscles. This blurs your current lines and wrinkles and also reduces the movements that cause lines and wrinkles over the next few months.
Botox treatment is generally painless, but you may experience a brief sting during injections. Any discomfort fades right away, and the whole treatment takes 10 minutes or less.
Botox is FDA-approved for three specific areas in your face, including:
Botox might sometimes be used in other areas of the face, too. But, it’s best suited for the types of lines and wrinkles stemming from repetitive muscle contracture.
Botox comes in units, with 100 units in each vial of product. Most patients need around 20 units per treatment area, on average. But, this can vary considerably depending on how deep your wrinkles are. For preventive Botox, when you don’t actually have any lines or wrinkles yet, you might need fewer units.
The total number of injections depends on the treatment areas. Generally, you need the following number of injections per area:
Even if you need a large number of Botox units to control your wrinkles, the total number of injections remains the same.
You could notice a lessening of facial lines and wrinkles in just 24-48 hours, with the full results typically occurring at around 7-10 days after treatment.
Botox can last for up to four months, but every patient is different. You might have less or more longevity. After a few months, the Botox wears off naturally until it’s completely gone. The best way to maintain your results is to have future treatments when you notice an increase in muscle movement or wrinkles in the treated areas.
