Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Dr. Schneider prescribes Botox and injects it into select facial muscles. Botox is prepared from the bacterial toxin botulin and is used as a medical intervention for a variety of cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Crow’s feet around your eyes
  • Forehead creases
  • Frown lines
  • Smile lines
  • Brow furrows

Botox not only smooths your lines and wrinkles, but also works to prevent your creases and lines from advancing further.

How many treatments do I need?

Dr. Schneider meets with you to assess your skin and the severity of your wrinkles and creases. She determines the number of treatments you need according to the location and depth of your wrinkles.

How soon will I see results?

It only takes about a week to see the full results from your Botox treatment, but you may even see some improvements on the same day as your treatment.

It’s possible that you’ll first see some swelling and redness as a result of the treatment, but it goes away within a day or two.

Is Botox permanent?

Unfortunately, no. It is long-lasting, though. Most of Dr. Schneider’s patients enjoy a visible improvement for about four months. As the results begin to fade, talk to Dr. Schneider about repeating the treatment.

Is Botox safe?

Botox has long been approved by the FDA and is widely and safely used on millions of people around the world each year. The side effects are well-tolerated and minimal.
