What is BOTOX Used For?

The tried-and-true wrinkle smoother is available at JPO Aesthetics. Botox contains trace amounts of botulinum to temporarily paralyze facial muscles. Botox is commonly used for horizontal forehead lines, frown lines (lines between the eyebrows) and crow’s feet that appear in the outer corners of the eyes.

What can I expect with BOTOX?

When you visit for your first treatment consultation at JPO Aesthetics, Dr. Olson and his team will provide a facial analysis to choose which areas need treatment. Since BOTOX is performed during a fast, outpatient treatment, your injections can usually be administered in the same visit. The formulation will be injected into the designated areas of your brow or upper face using a fine-gauge needle. BOTOX takes approximately 5 –10 minutes to administer, and most patients experience only mild discomfort (like a pinching or pinprick sensation). After your visit, you are welcome to leave our office and carry on with your normal day.

It is common to notice a little minor bruising, swelling, and redness in the treatment areas, but this shouldn't persist. Over the next 2 – 3 days, you will likely begin to experience your aesthetic results. BOTOX might deliver up to four months of youthful, natural-looking aesthetic enhancements for most individuals. We will suggest how often you should undergo injections as part of a personalized plan to achieve your desired results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Before I See Results?

Occasionally, with active musculature, mild results can be seen immediately! However, the more usual onset of action is within 3 to 4 days with up to 2 weeks for maturation of effect.

How Long Will It Last?

Typical duration of action is 3 to 4 months. However, with repeated use, it can sometimes stretch out injections to every

6 to 9 months.

Is Foreign, Counterfeit, or “Fake” Botox a Real Issue?

The US FDA has the strictest guidelines for producing, manufacturing, and promoting safety in the world. Unlicensed sources are rampant. Not only can the drug be ineffectual due to improper storage, but maybe unsafe.

A warning to practices from the FDA as recent as spring 2013: Purchases from such suppliers “may be misbranded, adulterated, counterfeit, contaminated, improperly stored and transported, ineffective, and/or unsafe. Medical practices that purchase and administer illegal and unapproved medications from foreign sources are putting patients’ health at risk, as patients may not be getting proper treatment.”
