Botox Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that deactivates nerves and muscles for months at a time. The most common use of Botox is treating wrinkles, specifically the wrinkles that form and deepen over time because of your facial expressions and movements. By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox softens fine lines such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. 

You can expect your Botox results to last for 3-4 months. Once they’ve faded, you can contact Energize Testosterone & Wellness Center for additional follow-up injections to continue enjoying your wrinkle-free skin.

One limitation of Botox is that it doesn’t treat larger wrinkles that have occurred due to a loss of skin laxity. If you’re concerned about marionette lines or other wrinkles associated with sagging, consider adding dermal fillers to your personalized care plan.
