What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is the proprietary name of botulinum toxin, a naturally occurring substance. It comes in the form of a purified protein and is injected into facial muscles to treat certain conditions, mainly chronic migraines and signs of aging or other cosmetic imperfections.

It partially causes your facial muscles to paralyze without negatively affecting or damaging the muscles themselves. The BOTOX solution blocks certain transmitters that cause your muscles to contract in excess.

Dr. Jenn is an experienced, skilled provider of safe, effective BOTOX injections.

How does BOTOX work?

Scheduling a BOTOX injection appointment doesn’t have to be something to stress over. The injection itself takes just a few minutes and an appointment can be fit into even the busiest schedules.

The solution actually paralyzes certain targeted facial muscles. However, because the dosage is controlled and very small, it doesn’t have any adverse effects, only the intended results.

BOTOX helps limit the contraction of muscles that cause you chronic headaches or migraines, or lead to cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Age lines
  • Age spots
  • A gummy smile

Dr. Jenn makes BOTOX injections simple, painless, and nothing to worry about. She walks you through each step of the procedure, addresses any concerns you may have, and is available after treatment should you have additional questions.

How long do BOTOX results last?

For optimal results, you need to come in for fairly regular BOTOX treatments. The cosmetic impacts of BOTOX typically last three to four months, at which point you need to come back in for follow up treatment to maintain results.

The number of treatment sessions and the length of time between appointments depends and varies on a case-by-case basis. Together with Dr. Jenn, you’ll develop a personalized treatment plan that works for you and will deliver optimal results.

Is BOTOX safe?

Yes, when administered by a trained professional like Dr. Jenn, BOTOX is perfectly safe. In some cases, there are minimal side effects you should be aware of, such as:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Mild pain at the injection site
  • Infection

However, these side effects are very rare and generally subside on their own quickly.
