Botox Q & A

How does Botox work?

You’ve probably already heard that Botox can reverse the signs of aging, but might not understand how it does this. Botox is an injectable solution made from a purified strain of a botulinum toxin. Once it’s injected, this botulinum strain immediately starts intercepting brain signals that cause your muscles to contract.

These are the muscle contractions that lead to deep wrinkles between your eyes and around your mouth. Since Botox helps these muscles relax — you can still make your normal facial expressions — your skin naturally smooths out and appears years younger within minutes.

What can Botox treat?

As an FDA-approved injectable, Botox has been heavily tested to safely treat a wide variety of skin concerns that both men and women face. You might be an ideal candidate for Botox if you have:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Smile lines
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines

Dr. Iluore and the aesthetic team at LACCMA Beauty design Botox treatment packages based on your specific needs and skin care concerns. The best way to know if Botox can help with the skin issues you have is to schedule an evaluation.

Is Botox permanent?

No, although Botox is known for being long-lasting. In most cases, it’s common to experience smoother, younger-looking skin for up to four months. For finer lines and wrinkles, your Botox anti-aging benefits may last even longer.

Once Botox wears off, it’s perfectly safe to have the treatment again. Plus, since you’re going to be established with the team at LACCMA Beauty for your follow-up visits, they can get you treated quickly, often in 10 minutes or less.

To help Botox last even longer and to have superior youthful results, Dr. Iluore sometimes suggests pairing your Botox injections with dermal fillers. Since Botox smoothes your skin and dermal fillers can plump up areas where you’ve lost volume, your younger-looking skin results can last even longer. Certain dermal fillers can last for up to one to two years.
