Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is one of the most recognizable names in aesthetic medicine. The drug comes in the form of injections that your provider carefully places near certain wrinkles and lines on your face, causing them to diminish or disappear for about four months at a time. 

While you might have many wrinkles and folds that need smoothing, Botox specializes in dynamic wrinkles that appear and deepen over time with repeated facial expressions and movements. They include:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines

Once the results wear off and you see your wrinkles return, you can come back to Genesis Regenerative Sports and Aesthetic Medicine for more injections if you enjoyed the natural appearance that Botox gave you.

How does Botox work?

Botox injections contain a type of natural toxin that temporarily stops your muscles from receiving the nerve signals telling them to flex. Even though Botox injections freeze the muscles that contribute to the formation of dynamic wrinkles, they don’t freeze your whole face. This means you can continue smiling, frowning, raising your eyebrows, and expressing yourself freely. 

What aesthetic treatments can I get in addition to Botox?

The team at Genesis Regenerative Sports and Aesthetic Medicine strives to help you look your best and appreciate your appearance. For this reason, they offer several other aesthetic treatment options in addition to Botox. Depending on the changes you want to see, they might recommend:

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that combats facial volume loss. It can plump your cheeks and lips and smooth small wrinkles and lines.

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are a facial treatment technique that removes the surface layer of your skin and many of the blemishes that you see in the mirror. Following a chemical peel, your skin feels smooth and looks radiant.

PRP Microneedling

Microneedling is a skin treatment procedure that uses small injuries to induce your skin’s natural healing response. It results in smoother skin with fewer fine lines. You can get the procedure with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) applied to your skin, called a PRP facial, for enhanced results.

Dermaplaning

During a dermaplaning procedure, your provider uses a fine blade to shave away dead skin cells and fine peach fuzz hairs from your skin’s surface.
