Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable medication that affects the way your muscles respond to stimuli from your nerves. The primary ingredient in Botox is a botulinum toxin that is found in many places throughout nature. The toxin stops your muscles from moving by blocking signals from the nerves. 

The team at Bombshell Aesthetics carefully places small doses of Botox in specific muscles to relax them without affecting other nearby muscles. With a few carefully placed Botox injections, you can target wrinkles and fine lines and enjoy smoother skin for four months at a time. 

What does Botox treat?

Physicians use Botox to treat many different medical conditions and symptoms linked to overactive muscles. Among its popular applications are the treatment of migraines, chronic underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), and eyelid spasms. 

Despite all of these uses, the most popular use for Botox is its cosmetic purpose: wrinkle alleviation. The team at Bombshell Aesthetics frequently uses the injections to target and treat:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Some lines around your mouth

Botox doesn’t treat all kinds of wrinkles. The wrinkles listed all have something in common: They’re dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles form and deepen with facial movements you make. Each time you frown, smile, or squint, dynamic wrinkles become more noticeable. Soon, you can see them even when your muscles aren’t flexing. Botox relaxes the muscles to smooth your skin on the surface.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic Botox treatments?

Botox for wrinkles and lines is an elective procedure, and your provider at Bombshell Aesthetics can help you decide if it’s the best treatment for your wrinkles. They may tell you that you’re a good candidate if you:

  • Don’t have any neuromuscular conditions
  • Don’t have any skin conditions near the injection sites
  • Feel confident about the treatment
  • Have realistic expectations for the outcome
  • Aren’t pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are over 18

During your consultation, you should be candid with your provider about any medications you take and any medical conditions you have. You also discuss your goals and expectations for Botox treatment at this time.
