What is Botox?
Botox is a well-established, FDA-approved treatment that temporarily reduces the appearance of frown lines, crow’s-feet, and forehead lines in adults.
The lines that appear on your forehead or around your eyes when you furrow your brow, squint, or smile are caused by tiny muscle contractions. After some time, the lines may remain even when you aren’t making that facial expression.
Botox smooths these lines by temporarily deactivating the muscles responsible for them. Dr. Ayo expertly injects the Botox medicine so your face looks natural, but with less noticeable lines.
What should I expect from a Botox treatment?
Botox injections usually take less than 15 minutes and don’t require downtime for recovery. You can go right back to work or do normal activities immediately after your appointment.
You may feel a little pinch when Dr. Ayo injects the medicine, but she can numb the area beforehand if you’re concerned about discomfort.
Results may appear as quickly as 24-48 hours after your treatment. Botox generally lasts about four months for moderate to severe frown lines.
