Botox/Wrinkle Reduction Q & A

How does Botox work? 

Botox is derived from a purified strain of Clostridium botulinum, which is a naturally occurring organism in the environment. When Botox is injected into your muscles, it starts blocking muscle-contracting cell signals that go to and from your brain.

Targeted muscles can then relax, which allows the overlying skin to smooth out. Because Botox is specifically designed to target certain muscles, surrounding muscles continue to function normally. This leaves you with entirely natural-looking results. 

What can Botox treat?

Your wrinkle relaxer service from Bensalem Medical Practice is personalized to you and the wrinkles you want to resolve. Botox is FDA-approved to target:

  • Crow’s feet next to your eyes
  • Frown lines between your eyebrows
  • Lines and creases across your forehead

Dr. Morris may be able to use Botox to help with other problem areas, too. Just talk with him about your concerns during your wrinkle reduction consultation. 

Are Botox injections painful?

As with any type of injection, it’s normal to feel a slight pinch from the needle. But Dr. Morris is an expert at providing Botox injections and uses a gentle technique, so you shouldn’t feel pain. 

You can even apply a topical numbing cream or ice pack to your treatment area before your wrinkle reduction appointment to lessen the pinching sensation you may feel.

When does Botox start working?

Botox starts working almost immediately. It’s normal to have some initial redness and swelling from the tiny needles but these minor side effects tend to fade away within a few hours. Dr. Morris finds that Botox often provides optimal results in about 24-72 hours.

How long does Botox last?

Botox reduces wrinkles and lines and leaves you with younger-looking skin for as long as four months. You may even have longer-lasting results if you have finer lines and wrinkles. Once you start noticing that your Botox treatment is wearing off, it’s safe to receive additional Botox injections at Bensalem Medical Practice.
