Botox Q & A

Renew Aesthetic Medicine and Wellness

Where is Botox effective?

Botox is primarily used to reduce the following lines:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Frown lines (furrows) between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes

The FDA has approved Botox for these purposes and dozens of studies have also proven its safety and effectiveness.

When will I see the effects of Botox?

The wrinkle and line-reducing effects of Botox usually appear in four to seven days following injection. You may have a specific line that you don’t like, but Renew Aesthetic Medicine will examine your entire expression and treat multiple lines that may be contributing to the furrows and creases you want to soften. This ensures you get a softer, more natural look.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

Botox is a temporary reducer of wrinkles. Depending on your skin’s qualities and the areas treated, you can expect results to last three to four months. Renew Aesthetic Medicine can put you on a retreatment schedule, however, so you have a seamless transition between injections and maintain your look for the long-term.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Botox injections do involve a needle, so you’ll feel multiple slight pinches during the treatment, but the discomfort is temporary. Treatment time is only about 10 minutes. Also, if you’re concerned about discomfort, ask us about using a topical numbing cream or ice to dull sensations temporarily.

Who is a candidate for Botox injections?

Anyone who is bothered by wrinkles and lines is a potential candidate for Botox. While Renew Aesthetic Medicine treats many patients in their middle age, they often see patients for preventative wrinkle treatment beginning in their 20s. After a consultation, Dr. Ciccone and Beth Domolky, RN can help determine if Botox is the right treatment course for you.

If you have damaged nerves or muscle complaints, your providers may recommend against Botox. Also, if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s safest to hold off of Botox injections to protect your baby.
