Botox Q & A
How does Botox® work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a safe, FDA-approved treatment that diminishes the appearance of frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s-feet around your eyes, and lines in your lips. Botox contains tiny amounts of purified botulinum toxin that decrease moderately to severe wrinkles. Dr. Yeung injects the solution into the area around your eyes, your lips, or between your eyebrows to block the release of a chemical that triggers muscle contractions and causes wrinkles.
Essentially, Botox paralyzes your muscles to keep them from contracting, but you can still move your face naturally. The solution causes your facial muscles to temporarily relax and reduces their ability to contract. Dr. Yeung often uses Botox in combination with a dermal filler so you get the most natural-looking results.
Do Botox injections hurt?
You may feel minimal discomfort when Dr. Yeung injects the Botox into your facial muscles, but you can request a local anesthetic or a numbing cream to help. Some men and women feel a pinch during the injection, but it’s otherwise a painless procedure that’s usually finished in 20 minutes or less, depending on how many areas you have treated.
What results can I expect with Botox?
Immediately following Botox injections, you can return to your daily activities, although you need to stay out of the sun. You may notice a visible difference in the appearance of lines and wrinkles within 24-48 hours after a Botox treatment, and you’ll see the full effect in about a week. The results last a minimum of three months, and often up to four months.
You can repeat Botox procedures if needed, as Dr. Yeung recommends. The goal of Botox injections is to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles while still making you look natural and like yourself. With Dr. Yeung’s expertise, your wrinkles disappear — and nobody will even know you had a cosmetic procedure!
For the best outcome and highest safety standards, you should receive Botox injections only from a board-certified facial plastic surgeon like Dr. Yeung. When you want facial lines and wrinkles to become a thing of your past, trust your appearance to Houston’s expert plastic surgeon. Call Dr. Yeung or schedule an appointment online.
