What should I know about Botox?

Botox is a nonsurgical FDA-approved cosmetic injection that temporarily improves moderate-to-severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. The results produced by Botox injections are subtle but effective. Millions of men and women have used Botox to improve their look.

Botox works by temporarily reducing the muscle activity under your skin that creates the lines and wrinkles to help give you smoother skin and a younger look. Dr. Ghoshal injects Botox into precise areas to create a younger, fresher look that doesn’t make you look frozen or expressionless.

What can I expect during Botox injections?

Your Botox injections with Dr. Ghoshal are quick and relatively painless. Though treatment time varies from person to person, your injections may take only 10 minutes, so you can have them done on your lunch break.

The number of injections you need depends on your aesthetic goals. In general:

  • Crow’s feet: three injections around each eye
  • Frown lines: five injections
  • Forehead lines: five injections

Dr. Ghoshal uses a tiny needle for your Botox treatments, and you may feel a fleeting pinch during your injections. If you’re sensitive to pain, be sure to let Dr. Ghoshal know so she can adjust your treatments to minimize any discomfort.

There’s no downtime following Botox injections, and you can even apply makeup to cover up any redness. However, Dr. Ghoshal recommends you not massage the injection site and that you hold off on any strenuous activity for at least two hours following your Botox treatments.

You should start to notice an improvement in your look within 24-48 hours after your Botox session.

How long does Botox last?

Botox can keep you looking young and fresh for up to four months. Dr. Ghoshal recommends you schedule another Botox session as soon as you notice the effects wearing off. Frequent Botox injections help thin out the muscle under your skin, which may help prolong the effectiveness of your treatments.

Botox is a simple, safe, and effective cosmetic treatment that takes very little time. To schedule your Botox injections, call Piya Ghoshal MD PC today to request an appointment.
