Botox / Dysport / Xeomin Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a prescription drug that relaxes certain muscles and blocks specific nerves that cause wrinkles. Dr. Steslow uses a fine needle to inject the drug into key areas to stop the small muscles of your face from creasing and causing wrinkles, and to smooth out fine lines. Botox provides a safe, FDA-approved way to get a refreshed, younger look.

Common areas treated with Botox include:

  • Glabella/ Frown Lines
  • Crow's Feet
  • Forehead Lines
  • Eyebrow shaping
  • Bunny Lines
  • Dimpled Chin
  • Gummy Smile
  • Smile Lift
  • Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
  • Masseter (V-Shaped Face)

How long does Botox last?

Botox injections aimed at reducing wrinkles last about three months, depending on the location and your personal reaction. Its effects are evident almost immediately, and you may experience minimal side effects. Those mild side effects include mild swelling, slight pain at the sight of the injections.
