What is Botox?

Botox is a derivative of a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. The compound temporarily paralyzes the muscle movement that causes creases to form when you smile, frown, or look confused. By preventing facial lines from forming, it also delays wrinkling and prevents any existing wrinkles from getting worse. This popular treatment is effective and well-researched.

What areas can be treated with Botox?

Botox is FDA approved for cosmetic use in a number of common areas that show your age. These include:

  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Lines between the brows (the 11s)
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes


Other uses of Botox are available. Talk to your provider at Lux Aesthetics about your aesthetic concerns, and he can appropriately and effectively apply Botox.

Is Botox wrinkle reduction safe?

Botox is safe when administered by a trained and experienced provider at Lux Aesthetics. Botox is among the most thoroughly studied medically administered aesthetic treatments ever.

More than 495 peer-reviewed articles in medical and scientific journals have evaluated Botox. In addition, the treatment has been in use safely in the United States since 2002 and has approval for cosmetic use in 96 countries.

What should I expect during a Botox treatment?

When you come to the office for your appointment, your skin is cleansed first, then your provider identifies the places of muscle movement to be injected and marks them. The injections are applied with a tiny needle and only take a few minutes.


You may feel a slight pinch during the procedure, but the discomfort is minimal. Usually, no topical anesthetic or sedative is necessary. Botox requires no downtime, so you can go right back to your normal activities following an appointment.

How long do the effects of Botox last?

You’ll see the effects of Botox within 24-48 hours. Botox is a temporary treatment to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Results typically last 3-4 months, after which you can receive retreatments to maintain your results. Get on a regular schedule to maintain your look for the long term.
