The pathway to Facial Rejuvenation


Will Botox Numb My Face?

No. It is essential to recognize that Botox injections will not numb your face, it only reduces the activity of treated facial muscles. You will experience full sensation at the site of injections, but your face may feel tighter or heavier for a few weeks after your treatment.

Does Botox Have Any Other Applications Besides Anti-Aging?

In addition to its anti-aging applications, Botox has been used to reduce facial scarring due to trauma, as well as to minimize skin plaques caused by psoriasis. Botulinum toxin is useful for the treatment of hyperhidrosis — a condition that causes excessive sweating — and migraine headaches. Botox is highly effective at treating migraines because it can target nerve endings that transmit pain signals across the forehead, stopping them from being released.

How Does Botulinum Toxin Help with excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis)?

Botox can help eliminate excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis by blocking the chemical signals that activate the sweat glands. The most common area for botulinum toxin treatment of hyperhidrosis is in the armpits, but the soles of the hands and feet can also be treated. Botulinum toxin has been shown to reduce underarm sweating by up to 87 percent, making it an exceptionally effective treatment that can be a real lifesaver during the summer months.

What is Botulinum Toxin Made From? Is it Safe?

Botulinum toxin is derived from a strain of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum, found naturally in lakes, rivers and soil. By extracting and purifying botulinum toxin from the bacteria in a lab, the active neurotoxic compound used in Botox is produced under strict and highly controlled conditions, ensuring a safe product that has been used safely for both cosmetic and medical purposes for over 20 years.

When it comes to the safety of botulinum toxin, it is essential to realize that this product does not systemically travel throughout the body once it is injected. It remains near the site of the injection and will wear off naturally for the following six months or so after your treatment.

Are Botox Injections Painful?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during treatment with botulinum toxin. Each injection lasts just a few seconds and has been compared to a small pinprick, but Dr. Wiser offers numbing cream to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

How is Botox Different from Dermal Fillers?

While both Botox and dermal fillers are used to treat lines and wrinkles, they work in different ways to achieve their anti-aging effects. Botox works by using botulinum toxin to paralyze the facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, while dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, collagen and other injectable ingredients to restore lost volume in the face, hands and lips. Unlike Botox, dermal fillers do not affect muscle activity and are best suited to treat static wrinkles.

Can the Effects of Botox be Reversed?

If your provider injected too much botulinum toxin or you aren’t happy with your results, the effects of “bad” Botox can’t be reversed. This is why it’s so important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Wiser to perform your procedure — while things like asymmetry or under correction can be remedied by using a little more product, you cannot undo the effects of too much Botox because of the way it affects the muscle. Fortunately, the results are not permanent and will begin to wear off after three to four months, restoring your normal appearance.

What Happens When My Botulinum Toxin Treatment Begins to Wear Off?

At some point, you will begin to notice that your facial muscles have started moving again. At first, it will be barely noticeable and gradually become more apparent. Some people are willing to wait a while between treatments, while others prefer to go ahead and have their next Botox treatment right away.

How Effective is Botox With Long-Term Use?

Some studies have shown that Botox becomes more effective with continuous, long-term use. With repeated injections, Botox can gradually “train” the facial muscles to relax more, increasing the longevity and long-term efficacy of subsequent treatments. This means that you may need less Botox to achieve similar results and can go longer between treatments.

Are There Any Preparations That I Should Take Before My Botulinum Toxin Treatment?

If you are worried about bruising or have a tendency to bruise easily, you should avoid taking over-the-counter products like aspirin or other blood thinners for eight days before your treatment. Any type of blood-thinning medication can also lead to an increased risk of bruising. However, if you have been prescribed blood-thinning medications by your physician, be sure to consult with them before temporarily stopping this treatment.
