Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection that temporarily smooths out lines and wrinkles on your face. The medical aesthetic experts at Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics use Botox to dramatically improve the appearance of:

  • Frown and worry lines
  • Lip wrinkles
  • Crow's feet

Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics wants you to enjoy one of the least costly facial aesthetic procedures, without downtime.


How does Botox work?

Botox temporarily reduces the muscle activity that causes lines and wrinkles to develop. When you squint or frown, the muscles under your skin causing your skin to fold create a crease. 

Lines and wrinkles are more prominent as you get older due to the structural changes in your skin. This includes the loss of subcutaneous fat, which allows the muscle to work closer to your skin as well as a decrease in collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein responsible for your skin’s strength and elasticity. 


What happens during Botox injections?

The medical aesthetic experts at Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics provide your Botox injections at the office. The injections are a quick and simple treatment that provides dramatic wrinkle reduction results without downtime.

You may feel a slight pinching sensation as the needle enters your skin, but any discomfort is minimal and fleeting. The aesthetic experts use tiny needles for your Botox treatments and only inject a small amount of the medication into very precise areas of your skin to get the dramatic yet natural-looking results.

You may notice some redness at the site of your injections following your treatment, but you can cover up the side effects with makeup. 

Though you don’t need to take downtime after your Botox injections, Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics recommends you hold off on any strenuous exercise for at least two hours following your session. 


How long does it take for Botox to work?

You should start to notice an improvement in your look within 24-48 hours after your Botox session. The effects are temporary but should keep your skin smooth and wrinkle-free for up to four months. Once you start to notice a return of your lines and creases, Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics suggests you return to the office for another set of injections.

Botox can remove unwanted wrinkles, and clear away bothersome crow’s feet. To schedule your Botox injections, contact Sylvan Weight Loss and Aesthetics by phone or online today.
