Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injection that’s FDA-approved to temporarily diminish the appearance of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s-feet, and frown lines. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S. and helps to subtly smooth out the lines without making you look frozen or expressionless.

How does Botox work?

Botox injections work by temporarily stopping the movement of muscle under your skin. As you get older, skin cell production decreases, causing your skin to be thinner and less stretchy and durable.

Your thinning skin means the muscles under your skin work closer to the surface. Every time you squint, frown, or raise your forehead in surprise, the muscles cause the skin to fold, leading to lines and creases.

The Botox injections are placed into precise areas of your skin to stop the muscle movement that leads to the creation of fine lines and wrinkles.

What can I expect during Botox injections?

Botox injections are quick and nearly painless. Dr. Riley and her team at CornerstoneMD can have you in and out of the office in a matter of minutes.

You may feel a slight pinch during the injections, but the needles used for Botox are small, and the amount of medicine used is minimal. The number of injections you need depends on the site of your injections. Dr. Riley explains your tailored treatment plan before you get started, so you know what to expect.

There may be some redness at the injection site, but you can cover up the side effects with makeup and go on with your day. Dr. Riley recommends you delay any strenuous activity for at least two hours following your injections.

You should start to notice an improvement in your look within 24 hours of your session.

How long do Botox injections last?

Your Botox injections at CornerstoneMD may help keep the lines and wrinkles away for up to four months. Once you start noticing wrinkles returning, Dr. Riley recommends you come back to the office for another round of injections.

Botox is a quick, effective, and simple cosmetic treatment that can restore your youthful look. To schedule your Botox injections, call CornerstoneMD or book an appointment online today.
