What is Botox & How Does it Work?
Botox Cosmetics is a purified protein derived from the Botulinum toxin. Botox acts as a neuromodulator, temporarily relaxing the muscle activity that leads to fine lines and wrinkles.¹
Botox is primarily used to soften expression lines, the dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions. Every time we smile, laugh, squint, or frown, expression muscles contract, pulling and folding the skin that sits atop the muscle. Years of repeated muscle contractions eventually cause the overlying skin to develop permanent creases, known as dynamic wrinkles. During your treatment, a skilled medical professional safely injects Botox into the underlying muscles that create these fine lines and wrinkles. The neuromodulator blocks neurotransmitters within the muscle that trigger contraction. Inhibiting the signal to contract allows the muscle to lengthen and relax, releasing the overlying skin. This effectively smoothes out the overlying expression lines and significantly diminishes the appearance of dynamic wrinkling.⁵

Common Botox Questions
How much does Botox Cost?
Botox is one of the most affordable ways to make yourself look rejuvenated and younger. The exact cost of Botox varies per individual depending on their personalized treatment plan. During your free consultation plan, your master injector from the Medspa will discuss prices and customize a treatment plan that matches your expectations and budget.
How Long Does Botox Last?
Typically, you can expect to notice improvement within 3 to 4 days following your injections, although some patients report improvement in as little as 24 to 48 hours after their treatment. Individual experiences may vary, but for many patients, results last up to 4 months.*
The importance of a skilled and experienced provider
Botox treatments are technique-sensitive. This means the skill and expertise of the physician or nurse practitioner administering the injection greatly influences the overall appearance and longevity of your results, not to mention the likelihood of encountering Botox side effects. When administered by an expert, Botox results look natural and preserve your ability to show facial expression.
When should I start Botox Treatments?
Most people think of Botox as a reactionary treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of dynamic wrinkles for adults, aged 40 and up. But recently, physicians have reported a surge of younger patients coming in for Botox injections.
Preventative Botox is the #1 cosmetic treatment among men and women in their 20’s and 30’s who take a proactive approach to skin care by preventing the signs of aging before they start. The popularity of Botox among young adults follows research that demonstrates how Botox can prevent the onset of dynamic wrinkling by targeting expression muscles early in adulthood before their repetitive contractions lead to permanent creases in overlying skin.²
According to viewpoints published in JAMA Dermatology “Initiating regular treatment with a neuromodulator in an individual’s 20s or 30s will have a dramatic effect on the appearance of the face as seen in the person’s 40s or 50s. There will be few, if any, imprinted lines of facial expression present.”²
A study published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery supports this claim. In the study, researchers followed identical twins over a 13-year period. One twin received regular Botox injections as a young adult. The other twin did not. Comparison photos reveal significantly less frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet in the twin who underwent preventative Botox treatments. The researchers concluded, “Long-term treatment with Botox can prevent the development of imprinted facial lines that are visible at rest. Botox treatment can also reduce crow’s feet.”³
