Injectables Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a widely used cosmetic injection that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s the most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatment in the United States. 

Botox treatment takes only minutes, and it’s virtually painless. You can return to work or your regular activities immediately after Botox treatment.

What areas does Botox treat?

Dr. Ravitskiy uses the injection to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in the upper face. Botox is FDA approved for use in three key areas of the face:

  • Lines at the corners of your eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Lines between your brows 
  • Lines in your forehead

If you have lines or wrinkles in other areas, especially those related to volume loss, dermal fillers like Restylane®  and Juvéderm® can be a good treatment option. Dermal fillers and Botox combine well, so you can treat all of your facial wrinkles in one appointment if you wish.

How does Botox work?

Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles under your skin, which helps prevent the folding that creates lines and wrinkles. 

Before administering your Botox treatment, Dr. Ravitskiy asks you to frown, move your eyebrows, and move your facial muscles in other ways so she can target the perfect areas within the appropriate muscles. 

Dr. Ravitskiy is an aesthetic expert and knows exactly how to place the injections to give you a more youthful look. 

When will I see the results of Botox?

You may notice visibly smoother skin within only 24-48 hours, although it can take up to seven days to see the effects of your Botox injections. The treatment lasts up to four months.

Once you see the effects of your Botox injections wearing off, Dr. Ravitskiy recommends another set of injections to help you retain your look. Getting regular injections may help smooth out the muscle under your skin to increase the longevity of the treatment.

Will my Botox look natural?

Because you’re seeing a highly trained Botox specialist, you can expect very natural-looking results. After Botox takes effect, you’ll still look natural and never like you’ve “had work done.” 

Others may notice that you appear better rested, younger, and more refreshed — and you’ll love the change you see in the mirror.
