Botox Q & A

Midtown Dental Care

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a neuromodulator that’s made from a highly purified form of onabotulinumtoxinA. BOTOX is the only neuromodulator that’s FDA-approved to treat moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet.

Is BOTOX safe?

BOTOX is exceptionally safe and has been used successfully for cosmetic purposes since 1989. The only side effects you might expect are some slight bruising or redness around the injection site.

How does BOTOX stop wrinkles?

BOTOX relaxes the dynamic muscles that fold your skin into wrinkles by blocking the nerves that signal those muscles to move. The muscles relax, and your skin then smooths out. After a few days, your wrinkles disappear.

BOTOX treats:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar lines (“11s” between your eyebrows)
  • Forehead wrinkles

BOTOX doesn’t work on wrinkles that other factors cause, such as generalized wrinkling from sun damage or smoking.

Will BOTOX freeze my face?

The aesthetic professionals at Midtown Dental Care inject only enough BOTOX to quiet down dynamic muscles, not freeze them.

Your muscles should still be able to move enough so that you can make regular expressions. However, they won’t be able to press your skin into wrinkles.

How else can I use BOTOX?

BOTOX can treat other wrinkles and aesthetic issues, such as:

  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Bunny lines
  • Droopy brows (non-surgical brow lift)
  • Orange-peel skin on chin
  • Neck bands
  • Bulky jaws

BOTOX can even improve or resolve some medical conditions, such as:

  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Bruxism (tooth grinding)
  • Bell’s palsy

BOTOX can be combined with dermal fillers to create a liquid facelift that rejuvenates without any surgery.

How much BOTOX do I need?

Your exact dosage of BOTOX depends partly on how deep your wrinkles are. In general, you can expect to receive:

  • 0.5 mL for glabellar lines
  • 0.6 mL for crow’s feet
  • 1 mL for forehead wrinkles

BOTOX doesn’t spread more than about 1 cm past the injection site.

How long does BOTOX last?

BOTOX lasts about three to four months in the forehead and around the eyes, and six months in the jaw.
