How Does Botox Work?
Botox uses botulinum toxin and acts as a muscle relaxant by blocking the nerve signals. It can minimize or eliminate various dynamic wrinkles and fine lines on your upper and/or lower face. Botox usually requires that you are in generally good health. Some of the contraindications for this type of injection include skin infections, medical conditions that affect your muscle or your nerves, and pregnancy.
What Is Botox Used For? Botox Can Address Moderate to Severe Wrinkles and Fine Lines in the Following Areas:
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Marionette lines
If your wrinkles are not dynamic and are due to sagging, we will likely recommend an alternative aesthetic service. However, if you need to treat various types of lines and wrinkles, we can incorporate both Botox injections and other aesthetic solutions in your customized treatment plans.

At The Skin Studio Medical Spa, we always begin with an initial consultation to discuss your cosmetic needs and goals. Our staff also reviews your medical history and performs a physical examination to make sure that Botox or any other treatment we may suggest is appropriate for you.

How Long Does Botox Take To Work?
The first results of your Botox injections occur about two days after your appointment, and you can generally enjoy the full results 30 days later. Results last three to six months. Our providers will let you know when to schedule your maintenance sessions to preserve your youthful appearance.
Does Botox Help Migraines?
Alongside it’s well-known proponents in assisting with fine lines and wrinkles, Botox can actually help with migraines by blocking the chemicals, referred to as neurotransmitters, that communicate pain to the body. In fact, it is FDA approved to assist chronic migraine sufferers. Botox, for the treatment of migraines, if often injected in areas considered “trigger points”, this may include the forehead, temples, and the neck.
Botox has also been known to assist with other medical conditions, such as excessive sweating in the underarms, eyelid spasms (blepharospasm) as well as helping prevent breakouts and acne scarring.
How Often Should You Get Botox?
It’s typically recommended that you receive Botox injections every three to four months as a general maintenance treatment. Additionally, the frequency with which you should receive a treatment will depend based on your age, the area being treated, your skin condition, the definition of wrinkles, and the dosage used, amongst other factors. If you’re uncertain of the number of treatments and frequency with which you should use Botox, our team of aestheticians can help. Call today to schedule a consultation to learn more.
