Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable Sanctuary Cosmetic Center offers to reduce lines, wrinkles, and other unwanted signs of aging. Botox and Dysport contain botulinum toxin type A, which can paralyze facial muscles responsible for frown lines, laugh lines, smile lines, and other signs of aging. Botox is FDA-approved, safe, and effective.

What is Botox used for?

Sanctuary Cosmetic Center offers Botox and Dysport to reduce the following unwanted signs of aging:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead creases
  • A cobblestone chin
  • Creases near your mouth

Botox can tighten your skin, give you the boost of confidence you deserve, and improve your overall quality of life. Sanctuary Cosmetic Center’s aesthetic team includes surgeons, so you won’t receive cookie-cutter injections. It’s the experience of the injector, not the cost of the product, that truly matters.

They know the ins and outs of the different muscles in your face and their functions, allowing them to achieve better precision, accuracy, and a more natural appearance.

Is Botox right for me?

To determine if Botox, Dysport, or another cosmetic injectable is right for you, the providers at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center review your medical history and discuss your desired outcome. They also carefully examine your skin. Your provider might recommend combining Botox or Dysport with another cosmetic procedure, such as dermal fillers, to optimize your results.

What should I expect during Botox injections?

During Botox injections, you sit in a comfortable chair in a relaxing room. Your provider can numb your skin so you don’t feel any discomfort during needle insertion. They slowly inject botulinum toxin beneath your skin at targeted areas. 

Botox injection procedures are fast, painless, and effective, with no downtime.

What happens after the procedure?

After Botox injections, you can resume normal everyday activities immediately. Follow your provider’s post-procedure instructions. You can take over-the-counter pain relievers or ice the treatment area to reduce discomfort, redness, and swelling. Botox results often last about 3-6 months.

To achieve the most desirable outcome, your provider can repeat Botox or Dysport injections every few months to give you the long-lasting anti-aging results you desire.

Don’t live with wrinkles and other signs of aging when simple cosmetic injectables are available at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center. Schedule an appointment over the phone or online today to find out if you’re a good candidate for Botox.
