Botox Q&A

What Is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved muscle relaxer that helps to soothe and smooth creases in the skin… thus eliminating the appearance of wrinkles. It is a safe and effective treatment that is often used in combination with dermal fillers to rejuvenate the face.

Botox treatment works its magic by reducing the ability of your facial expression muscles from receiving signals sent by your nerve cells. Without full movement, the muscles become temporarily relaxed, reducing the appearance of wrinkles on the skin.

This approach is different from dermal fillers, which provides a more youthful appearance by restoring volume to strategic areas of the face.

What Are Some Reasons to Use Botox?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of wrinkles on your skin, Botox is a great way to rejuvenate your facial appearance. Botox is the #1 treatment in the world for the reduction and softening of crows feet, smoker lines, frown lines, and forehead lines.

The treatment is most common with women and it is equally effective for men. It is also popular with younger individuals who want to delay the appearance of wrinkles.

Did you know, many people use Botox to reduce the signs of aging, but it is also safely used to treat over 20 different medical conditions.

How Is the Botox Treatment Performed?

Dr. Cagnes will perform your Botox treatment right in her office located in Hyannis. You won’t have to waste time going to a special clinic or being admitted to the hospital.

She will take a highly diluted amount of solution and inject it directly into the neuromuscular tissue around the areas you would like to see improvement.

The injections themselves only take a few minutes to perform and you will be able to get back to your busy life in no time. You will begin to see the effects of the injections after the first week and the full effect after two weeks.

Typical results for Botox treatments can last up to four months. After which it is recommended you return for another treatment to ensure the relaxed wrinkles do not re-appear.

Is Botox Safe?

Botox injections are entirely safe, with very few reported side effects when performed by a qualified medical professional.

Common side-effects you might experience are slight redness or pain at the injection site. These side-effects will quickly clear up after a few days.

In rare cases, a person might develop antibodies against Botox, which will render the procedure ineffective. If this happens, Dr. Cagnes will be able to recommend an alternative treatment for your skin issues.
