Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription anti-wrinkle injectable called a neuromodulator. Botox's active ingredient is botulinum toxin, which works by relaxing the underlying muscles in your face. This leads to gradual skin smoothing, which means it can reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.

Where is Botox injected?

The certified Botox providers at Skin Scripts inject Botox in three areas of the face.

  • Between your eyebrows
  • In your forehead
  • Around your eyes (crow’s feet)

Botox is highly effective in all of these areas, but it’s not ideal for middle and lower face injection because it relaxes muscles rather than adding volume. If you have nasolabial folds - the deep facial lines sometimes called smile lines - dermal fillers like Juvéderm® can give you the volume you need. 

What do Botox injections feel like?

Botox injections are generally almost painless. The Skin Scripts providers use very thin insulin-size needles, so there’s only a brief pinch as they place the product precisely in your facial muscles. You can apply an ice pack afterward to soothe the short-lived mild soreness and swelling.

How long does Botox last?

Botox lasts for up to four months, but its duration can vary from one patient to another. If you’re looking to stay young and wrinkle-free long term, your Skin Scripts care provider can help you plan the ideal maintenance schedule. 

How fast will I see results from Botox injections?

You can start seeing results in as little as 24-48 hours, and then the maximum results appear within a couple of weeks. 

Is any recovery time needed after Botox injections?

Not at all. Your Botox injections at Skin Scripts can take as little as 10 minutes, and after that, you’re free to resume your regular routine immediately. 

What is the right age to start Botox?

There’s no set age. Some patients are now starting preventive Botox in their 20s, while others prefer to wait for their 30s, 40s, or later. If you’ve got obvious wrinkles that really bother you whenever you look in the mirror, it’s a great time to start Botox. 

Even if you don’t have any wrinkles yet, but your skin seems to take longer to retract after you raise your eyebrows or smile, Botox can help stop the formation of wrinkles. 

You can trust the Skin Scripts team at their convenient location inside the Grace Clinic® for Botox injections that give you an effortlessly youthful appearance. Book an appointment by phone today.
