Botox St. Louis, MOHow does Botox® work?

Botox® and Dysport® are neuromodulators that prevent the nerve from stimulating and contracting muscles that cause “expression lines.” Relaxing these muscles softens wrinkles in the overlying skin. Learn more here.

Does Botox® have Side Effects?

Any medical treatment has possible side effects. Fortunately, there are no persistent side effects seen with Botox® and Dysport®. Possible side-effects include:

  • Bruising. Taking aspirin or similar medications (Motrin, Ibuprofen, some cold medications) increases this risk.
  • Headaches
  • Eyelid droop
  • Difficulty swallowing has been reported in children given high doses for muscle spasms (never reported with cosmetic use)
  • Difficulty whistling if done in lips

What areas can Botox® and Dysport® help?

Fillers can be used in several areas to improve how you look and feel, but the most common areas for the use of fillers are the frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal forehead creases, and crow’s feet. Neck creases can also be improved with Botox®.

Are injections painful?

When injected, there is a minor stinging sensation, which lasts for a few seconds. Also, we can apply ice to the treatment area for a few minutes immediately before the injections to further reduce the discomfort and reduce the amount of swelling. Usually, there is no discomfort after the injection. Patients can usually resume normal activities right away. Learn more here.

When will I see results?

Improvement will begin in a few days but can take two weeks for full effect to be achieved. The effects of neuromodulators usually lasts 4 to 6 months and then fade gradually. Clinical studies show longer lasting effects after receiving multiple treatments over time.
