Patients new to BOTOX: What’s the story?

BOTOX Cosmetic is the world’s best known anti-aging treatment and has been FDA approved since 2002. BOTOX targets one of the sources of the wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause your skin to crease. These muscles, such as those on the forehead or between the eyebrows, can cause the development of etched-in lines that leave you looking older, tired, or angry. By relaxing these muscles, the skin becomes smoother, for a refreshed, youthful look. It works by halting the signals from the nerves to the muscles.

How often do new patients get BOTOX?

The effects of BOTOX can last for up to three to four months for people who are new to BOTOX. As the age-defying results of your initial treatment fade, you will need to undergo maintenance treatments. When you are first starting with BOTOX, smaller doses are injected, so we can see how your initial results develop. At Avalon Laser, we believe a conservative approach is essential. Once the BOTOX has taken effect (in about a week), if more is needed, it can be added. We recommend you start small and work your way up the perfect number of units.

Muscle memory and maintaining your results over time

Over time your muscles will begin to keep their relaxed state for more extended periods. This “training” of the muscles with consistent treatments means:

  • You may not need BOTOX injections as frequently to maintain your results
  • Many patients find that they can keep their results with treatments every six months or longer
  • The muscles retain their relaxed state longer
