Botox Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox, as well as Dysport, is an FDA-approved injectable designed to help muscles relax. Upon injection, Botox and Dysport deliver purified forms of a particular botulinum strain that has been shown to block cell signaling involved in muscle movements.

When Botox and Dysport are injected into specific muscles, those muscles no longer twitch and contract, so your skin smooths out. But because surrounding muscles aren’t affected and continue to act normally, your results are natural-looking and won’t give you a “frozen” appearance. 

What can Botox treat?

Botox and Dysport work very similarly and Dr. González can help you determine which one may be right for you, based on your concerns and your specific treatment areas. In general, these anti-aging injectables are commonly used for:

  • Smoothing out crow’s feet at the corners of your eyes
  • Softening frown lines right between your eyebrows
  • Getting rid of forehead lines and wrinkles

Botox and Dysport are sometimes paired with dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm®, for superior volumizing effects and anti-aging results.

When does Botox start working?

When you come into Amber Medical Spa for your Botox or Dysport service — injections take just about 10-15 minutes — you should notice an improvement in your appearance before you leave the office. 

It’s common to have some minor, temporary swelling or redness right afterward though. Once these minor side effects wear off, you should experience optimal results within about 24-48 hours.

How long do Botox injections last?

Botox and Dysport injectable treatments from Amber Medical Spa continue to be among the most in-demand services offered due in part because they’re fast and long-lasting. Dr. González generally finds that both Botox and Dysport tend to provide optimal results for as long as three to four months.

Because Botox and Dysport are clinical injectables and treatments at Amber Medical Spa are provided by Dr. González, a board-certified physician, you can feel confident that you’re going to have the results you want. Once you notice that lines and wrinkles are forming again, you can always come back to the medspa for more Botox or Dysport injections.
