Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is the top-selling wrinkle-reducer in the United States. More than 15 years of research supports its efficacy and safety.

The purified toxin is FDA approved for wrinkle reduction in the forehead and around the eyes. The medication is administered via injections into specific muscles in your face where repeated activity etches lines and wrinkles into your face. Botox gives you a subtle, predictable look so you don’t appear to have had “work” done.

Dr. Fortin is an expert at applying Botox cosmetic and has a vast knowledge of facial anatomy. He helps you look like yourself, just with less noticeable lines.

Where are Botox treatments effective?

Botox is especially effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles in your forehead. Specifically, the injections treat horizontal lines and the frown lines between your brows. Adults can also experience a softening of the crow’s feet around the eyes with Botox injections.

When are the results of Botox injections evident and how long do they last?

Botox offers a temporary reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You notice less wrinkling 24-48 hours following treatment and stay wrinkle-free for three to four months.

Dr. Fortin offers retreatments to help you maintain your look. He can put you on a schedule so you never experience a disruption in your new youthful appearance.

Do Botox injections hurt?

Botox injections do involve a tiny needle, so you feel pinching during treatment. If you’re concerned about discomfort, talk to Dr. Fortin about using a topical numbing cream or ice prior to the injections.

Does Botox require downtime following treatment?

You can go right back to your normal activities following Botox injections. You may schedule Botox treatments during your lunch hour, for example, without anyone knowing. Treatment takes just 10 minutes.

You may have slight swelling, redness, or bruising at the sites of the injections. These can easily be covered with light makeup. These side effects fade within a day or two.
