Botox Q & A

Healing Touch Medical

What is Botox?

The medical formula in Botox uses forms of the botulinum toxin to disrupt communication between your nerves and muscles; it temporarily paralyzes your muscles.

Botox is well known for its ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but additional aesthetic uses include:

  • Tightening loose skin
  • Smoothing vertical lip lines
  • Crow’s feet and frown lines
  • Raising drooping eyebrows
  • Reducing chin dimples and jowls
  • Decreasing hollowness under the eyes

How does Botox reduce wrinkles?

No matter how well you take care of your skin, fine lines and wrinkles develop over time.

Your body produces less collagen beginning in your 20s. Collagen gives your skin the flexibility and elasticity that creates a smooth appearance. Repeated use of your facial muscles to express a wide range of emotions also causes furrows and folds to develop in your skin.

As your skin loses its flexibility and elasticity, the wrinkles and folds become more pronounced. Botox counteracts this effect by relaxing the muscles causing the creases and preventing the movement that further deepens them. The result is a smoother, younger complexion.

What are the benefits of Botox?

With Botox, you can take control of your appearance and rejuvenate your skin. Dr. Kaur understands that feeling refreshed, radiant, and restored on the outside directly impacts your overall health and wellness.
Additional benefits of Botox injections include:

  • Minimally invasive treatments
  • No recovery or downtime required
  • Quick sessions (20-30 minutes)
  • Treats fine lines to deep wrinkles
  • Equally effective for men and women

Dr. Kaur’s Botox treatments are designed to relax your facial muscles, not paralyze them completely. This technique provides a more natural appearance, instead of looking as if part of your face is paralyzed or non-expressive.

What can I expect during my Botox treatment?

During your appointment, Dr. Kaur discusses your goals and evaluates the areas of concern. Based on these findings, she suggests a course of treatment to deliver maximum results that might involve dermal fillers to add volume or address wrinkles in other areas.

Dr. Kaur uses tiny needles to administer Botox and applies a numbing agent to the area before injecting the solution. Following your appointment, you can resume normal activities. You can expect to see dramatic results in three to five days, and these results should last three to six months. For maintenance, Dr. Kaur might suggest regular appointments every three to four months.
