Botox Q & A

What is Botox®?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable that contains a safe form of botulinum toxin. Dr. Mozayeni injects it into specific areas, like your forehead or near your eyes. The Botox smooths wrinkles, making your skin look younger and more vibrant.

What types of skin imperfections can Botox treat?

Dr. Mozayeni uses Botox and Dysport injections to treat several types of skin imperfections, including:

  • Lipstick lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead wrinkles (frown lines)
  • Marionette lines
  • Chin dimpling
  • Glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows)

Sometimes, Dr. Mozayeni uses Botox to treat jaw and facial pain. For example, if you have a temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), Botox injections can relax the muscles in your jaw, relieving tension and pain.

How do I prepare for Botox injections?

Before recommending Botox injections, Dr. Mozayeni reviews your dental records and asks about your treatment goals.

During the visit, tell her about the vitamins, prescription medications, and over-the-counter (OTC) medications you take. Certain drugs, like blood thinners, increase the risk of bleeding and bruising, so you might need to stop taking them before your injections. Similarly, you should avoid tobacco and alcohol.

What does Botox treatment involve?

Botox treatment is an outpatient procedure that takes 30-45 minutes.

If Dr. Mozayeni determines you’re a candidate for Botox injections, she washes your face and applies a topical anesthetic to the areas receiving them.

After the anesthetic sets in, Dr. Mozayeni administers a series of Botox injections into specific areas. You might feel a slight pinch when the needle enters your skin, but it shouldn’t be painful. 

After injecting the Botox, Dr. Mozayeni provides recovery instructions and sends you home.

What is recovery like after Botox?

After Botox injections, it’s normal to have mild redness, bruising, and swelling at each injection site. Don’t rub or press on these areas, and avoid lying down for at least four hours. Following these guidelines prevents Botox from spreading to other areas of your body.

You can return to work and other activities immediately, but avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours. Most people start noticing skin improvements within the first 3-4 days of treatment, but it may take longer. Be patient and follow Dr. Mozayeni’s instructions.
