Botox Q & A
How does Botox work?
Squinting and frowning cause frown lines and crow’s feet. They’re most visible when you’re actively making those facial expressions. Botox is injected into the muscles in your forehead responsible for squinting and frowning, temporarily disabling or paralyzing the muscle.
The result is a smooth, youthful appearance in place of deep wrinkles and fine lines. Over time, the muscle regains function an additional treatment is needed.
What are the risks associated with Botox injections?
Dr. Modiri reviews all of the risks with you before you decide whether to move forward with Botox treatments or not.
However, the primary risk associated with Botox treatment is an allergic reaction to one of its ingredients. It’s essential to let Dr. Modiri know if you’ve ever had an allergic reaction to anything before to ensure the treatment is safe for you.
How long does it take to see results?
Most patients begin to see results just a day or two after they received the initial injection. These results continue to improve until day ten when peak results are achieved. While you won’t keep getting results after the tenth day, you’ll maintain your results for weeks and months to come.
The results you achieve after Botox treatment last three to six months before additional injections are required.
Will I need to take time off of work?
No. However, many patients choose to schedule their Botox treatments toward the end of their workday so they can take the afternoon off before returning the next day.
You may have some redness or slight swelling immediately after receiving injections. These symptoms disappear within a few hours of receiving treatment, which means nobody will know you received Botox when you return to work the next day.
Can natural-looking results be achieved using Botox?
When Botox is administered correctly, the results are natural and beautiful. Many patients share their experiences with the team at Renu MedSpa, and their stories are similar: They receive compliments about their appearance, but their friends and colleagues usually think they’re simply well-rested and feeling great.

How Does Botox Treatment Work?
Botox begins to work several days after a medical professional injects the drug directly into the area requiring treatment. The Botox injections take effect when the natural neurotoxins begin to work on the nervous system. This is known as the interruption process. Once the neurotoxins are able to interrupt the connection between the nerve cells and the muscles, the muscles will begin to relax. By having the muscles relax, it will help smooth out any fine lines and/or wrinkles, allowing for a much smoother facial appearance.
What Can Botox do for One’s Appearance?
Botox is able to provide the smoother appearance many people are looking for nowadays. This can include diminishing the frown lines that are often found between the eyebrows, lessening the look of forehead furrows and smoothing out all of those fine lines that come with age, aka crow’s feet.
Botox Follow-Up Care
Immediately after a patient receives their Botox injections they may need to apply a little bit of pressure when minimal bleeding occurs. Ice can help to treat any swelling and can help minimize any future bruising. Patients should avoid lying down for about 4 hours after the procedure. Over-the-counter pain medication can also help relieve pain for people who need it.
We recommend that patients keep a careful watch over the specific area for the next few days. This way, there is less of a chance for something to go wrong and not notice. It is also important to avoid strenuous activities for a day or two after having Botox face injections.
Botox uses face injections to insert the substance into the patient’s face. A topical anesthetic cream will dull the feel of the needle and the insertion of the substance. Fortunately, both of these are minimal. Depending on the area that we are treating with Botox, we will gauge how many face injections the patient will receive, which tends to be anywhere between five and 20.
Botox lip injections can be used to help minimize fine lines and creases in the upper lip and lower lip areas, a common complaint that comes with aging. Lip injections are also able to lift up the corners of the mouth making for a more youthful appearance, as well as help to improve someone’s smile when they feel that too much of their gums are showing.
For those who are looking to add plumpness to their lips, they can ask for the Botox lip flip. Lip plumping is considered to be in aesthetic treatment.
