BOTOX® Cosmetic FAQs

If you have any of the following, BOTOX® might be a good choice for you:

  • Frown lines, also known as “11” lines, between your eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet around your eyes
  • Forehead creases regardless of your facial expression
  • Fine lines around the mouth sometimes called “smoker’s lines”
  • “Bunny lines” on the bridge of the nose
  • Slightly downturned mouth corners

Not all wrinkles are the same – they have different causes. BOTOX® improves lines and wrinkles that are caused by muscle activity. For example, frown lines are usually caused by repeated squinting.

Other lines and wrinkles, however, are caused by gravity or loss of facial volume. For those, dermal fillers or perhaps a Facelift work best.

Very fine lines on the surface of the skin that have nothing to do with the underlying muscle are usually caused by sun damage. These are best treated with laser procedures rather than BOTOX®.

During your consultation, Dr. Subbio will let you know which types of wrinkles you have and which treatment is best for you.

Most patients say BOTOX® injections aren’t painful, but only sting slightly. The needle used is very small.

BOTOX® is a protein that, while related to the bacteria that causes botulism, is safe because it’s used in such small doses. This same formula has been used for decades to treat muscle spasms, even in children. It’s also used to treat migraine headaches and excessive sweating called hyperhidrosis.

The treatment takes only about 15 minutes.

You can go back to work or other activities right after your appointment.

BOTOX® leaves no scars.

BOTOX® results last about four months in most cases, so the injections have to be repeated regularly to maintain results.

We think there are several reasons! Here are just a few:
  • He gives all of his patients his cell phone number, so if you have any concerns after your injections, you can check with him.
  • He’s a trained artist, and you’re his canvas. It’s the perfect marriage of science and artistry. In fact, he’ll hand-draw his projected results right in front of you during your consultation.
  • He’s fun! He likes to joke with his patients and put them at ease. Plus, we maintain a small office where we treat our patients like a part of the family.
  • He won’t try to convince you to have a treatment or procedure that isn’t best for you. He’d rather lose your business than sign you up for a procedure he isn’t 100% behind. And if he thinks you need a surgery or treatment he doesn’t offer, he’ll recommend a different doctor for you.

Absolutely! During your consultation, Dr. Subbio will ask you what bothers you about the way you look. Then, he’ll tell you exactly which procedure will give you the results you’re after, and he’ll explain what you can expect. He might even hand-draw you a projected result right in the office!

BOTOX® disrupts the muscle activity that can cause wrinkled skin. Dermal fillers add volume where it has been lost due to the aging process. As we said in the answer to the last question, there is more than one cause of wrinkles, so the solution must also be different.
No. Since the needle is tiny, the sting from BOTOX® injections is so minor and quick that anesthesia isn’t needed.

The small needle is inserted into the areas you wish to treat, and the entire treatment takes only a few minutes.

No recovery is required! You can go right back to work or anywhere else after your BOTOX® injections.
Some people experience slight bruising at the BOTOX® injection sites, but this usually goes away quickly. Many patients have no discoloration at all.

The results from BOTOX® injections appear within 5-14 days.

Dermal fillers and laser procedures can complement BOTOX® injections, smoothing the kinds of lines and wrinkles that BOTOX® doesn’t address.
