What is Botox®?

Botox is a substance that freezes muscles to prevent them from contracting. It originally comes from certain bacteria that produce the chemical known as botulinum. Scientists carefully extract botulinum and have discovered it has wonderful aesthetic and health benefits. 

When administered in regulated doses, Botox reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox offers more than just cosmetic benefits, however. Many people receive Botox to help with common medical concerns, such as migraines and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.  

Does Botox require downtime?

Botox is a minimally-invasive and FDA-approved procedure that typically only takes a handful of minutes. The length of a Botox procedure depends on the number of units you and Dr. Kasden agree would best fit you.  

Botox often requires no preparation before your appointment. If you’re sensitive to pain, Dr. Kasden offers numbing creams to make your appointment more comfortable. He then uses a fresh and sterile needle to inject Botox directly into the face. Following your appointment, you may be advised to avoid physical activity for 24 hours.  

How long does Botox last?

After you receive Botox, you should notice its effect immediately. The duration of Botox depends on an individual’s metabolism and how many units they received. On average, people notice the effects of Botox for 3-4 months. Some people even experience longer-lasting results of up to six months. 

What are the benefits of Botox?

Botox offers many cosmetic and health benefits, including:

  • Smoother skin
  • Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improved facial symmetry
  • Decreased sweating
  • Fewer headaches and migraines

Botox is also great for those experiencing an overactive bladder or who desire smaller facial muscles, as Botox helps slim their appearance. Botox is one of the few inexpensive and easily accessible treatments to enhance your appearance within minutes.  

Does Botox require surgery or anesthesia?

Botox is surgery-free and the use of anesthesia isn’t recommended. Dr. Kasden injects Botox quickly and safely, meaning you can continue your daily activities as planned.  

Additionally, Botox pairs wonderfully with other cosmetic procedures, such as fillers. This means you can get multiple procedures on the same day and won’t have to wait before scheduling.
