Botox Q & A

Zweiback Medical Associates

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable, prescription therapy that uses tiny amounts of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin A to temporarily paralyze dynamic muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox smooths out wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes, such as:

  • Brow furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Bunny lines on your nose
  • Crow’s feet at eye corners

Within two weeks, your skin smooths out and looks younger. Dr. Zweiback is an expert injector who also uses Botox to create non-surgical brow lifts that give you a younger, more lifted, and more energized appearance.

How long does Botox take to work?

Botox settles into your muscles within minutes after the Zweiback Medical Associates team administers your treatment. You may start to see your skin smoothing out within just a few days. Botox can take up to two weeks to completely relax your dynamic muscles to smooth and lift your skin.

Can I make natural expressions with Botox?

Yes, you can make beautiful and natural expressions with Botox. Dr. Zweiback and his staff are expert injectors who only administer enough Botox to quiet down your dynamic muscle activity without completely “freezing” the muscle. Your rejuvenation looks refreshing, without looking “done.”

When should I start using Botox?

As long as you’re over the age of 18 and are in good health, you can start using Botox as soon as you notice fine lines and creases. Many of Zweiback Medical Associates’s patients begin using Botox in their 20s as part of a “prejuvenation” regimen.

Is Botox safe?

Medical professionals have safely used Botox Cosmetic to treat wrinkles since the 1980s. Even though Botox is safe, you shouldn’t receive it or any other injectable aesthetic treatment when you’re pregnant or nursing. The Zweiback Medical Associates team takes a medical history during your consultation to be sure that Botox is the right treatment for you.

Can I use Botox on other wrinkles, too?

Botox only works on wrinkles that are caused by dynamic muscles. If you have other types of wrinkles and creases on your face, the Zweiback Medical Associates team may recommend laser rejuvenation to improve the quality of your skin. They may also advise a liquid facelift using both Botox and dermal fillers to restore the smooth, youthful luster of your skin.  

How long does Botox last?

Each Botox treatment lasts about three to four months. Schedule your touch-ups ahead of time at Zweiback Medical Associates to ensure your skin stays fresh and wrinkle-free.
