Botox Q & A
How does Botox work?
Categorized as a neuromodulator, Botox works at a cellular level. It blocks cell signaling that occurs between muscles and neurons in your brain. By stopping this type of communication, your muscles can relax.
Once muscles relax, the overlying skin smooths out, making the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and grooves seamlessly melt away. Botox only works in targeted tissues; because of this, all surrounding muscles function as they usually would. You can continue making your regular facial expressions, without stressing about an unnatural frozen appearance.
Botox is also highly beneficial for blocking nerve signals associated with excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis). You can undergo Botox treatments to minimize issues with underarm wetness, so you won’t have to feel self-conscious about this common problem another day.
What can I expect during a Botox session?
When you come to Scheinblum Medical for your Botox consultation, Dr. Scheinblum sits and has a conversation with you about your concerns and what you’d like to achieve. He reviews your medical history and talks with you about any aesthetic treatments you’ve had in the past to ensure Botox is the right fit for you.
As an experienced eye surgeon with a vast knowledge of facial anatomy, Dr. Scheinblum can deliver highly effective Botox treatment plans. Once you and Dr. Scheinblum decide on your Botox plan, he shows you where he plans to make injections and gently injects Botox.
The needle is tiny and causes little-to-no discomfort. Still, if you’re worried about pain, you’re welcome to arrive at Scheinblum Medical about 20 minutes before your appointment and receive a topical numbing cream.
When does Botox take effect?
You may start noticing the benefits of Botox within hours of your treatment. Dr. Scheinblum usually finds that it takes about 48 hours for more dramatic results, with optimal results surfacing within one to two weeks of your session.
How long does Botox last?
Once you achieve your optimal results with Botox, you can expect your treatment to last up to four months. Scheinblum Medical offers flexible appointment scheduling to fit into your busy schedule whenever it comes time for another treatment.
