Botox Q & A
How does Botox work?
The primary component of Botox is a highly purified strain of Clostridium botulinum, a type of bacterium.
Upon injection, Botox immediately starts blocking the cell signals involved in muscle contractions. That forces your muscles and nerves to relax. Once those muscles and nerves relax, your pain should start to subside quickly.
An ultrasound or another type of imaging is often required to help guide the injection to the proper location. Then, Dr. Golpariani injects the Botox solution directly into the source of your pain.
Which areas can be treated with Botox?
Botox can relieve many issues for chronic pain sufferers. If you have frequent migraines or tension headaches, these injections can minimize your head pain and decrease the severity or duration of the attack. Botox injections can also alleviate pain in your back, neck, and anywhere else you experience muscle or nerve pain.
For cosmetic purposes, Botox injections in your face minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Because the ingredients in this injection force your muscles to relax, your skin smooths out, taking years off your face almost instantly.
To achieve optimal anti-aging benefits, sometimes Dr. Golpariani pairs Botox with JUVÉDERM®, a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. JUVÉDERM replaces lost volume and helps plump your skin, including areas with scarring.
When will I have results with Botox?
Botox goes to work almost immediately. Initially, right after your treatment, you might experience a little bit of pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site. Most men and women who have Botox injections for either pain relief or cosmetic purposes notice optimal results in as little as 24-48 hours.
Botox isn’t permanent, so once your injections wear off, it’s time to schedule another treatment session with Dr. Golpariani. Depending on why you’re having the injections and the severity of your condition, the effects usually last for up to four months (sometimes even longer).
