Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox belongs to a particular category of treatments called neuromodulator injections. Other injections offered at Z-ROC Dermatology that fall into this category include Dysport® and Xeomin®.

These injections work by relaxing the muscles responsible for creating lines and wrinkles. Because the muscles don’t contract, creases don’t form on the surface, reducing the effects of aging while retaining your natural look.

Botox results are fast and typically last for 3-4 months; plus, the treatment doesn’t require any downtime. You can get right back to your normal activities.

What areas can be treated with Botox?

Botox is FDA-approved to treat the following:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead lines
  • Furrows between the eyebrows

Dr. Zarraga and Dr. Wongkittiroch are experienced in the use of Botox and other injectable neuromodulators, and they can smooth lines and wrinkles in these areas even when they’re moderate to severe.

What can I expect from a Botox treatment?

Your Z-ROC Dermatology provider evaluates your wrinkles and determines where the injections should be made to provide the best results. The injections usually take around 10 minutes, and while you may notice results immediately, optimal results can take up to two weeks to appear.

You may experience minimal discomfort at the injection site — some patients describe the feeling as a small pinching sensation. Side effect from Botox are rare but may include some slight bruising, redness, or soreness at the injection site. These symptoms should subside on their own within about 24 hours.

What are the benefits of Botox?

There has been a great deal of research on the Botox brand in particular. With over 15 years of clinical study, Botox is a proven, safe, and reliable option for smoother, younger-looking skin. Results are subtle and natural, especially when administered by experienced aesthetic professionals like the doctors at Z-ROC Dermatology.
