Botox Q&A

What happens to my skin as I age?

To better understand how Botox works, it’s helpful to step back and take a look at what happens in your skin as you age. First, the years of exposure to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays begin to take their toll on your skin, prematurely breaking down your skin cells.

Next, as you age, your body produces less of the resources your skin needs to fight back against the effects of aging. Your skin relies on two very important structural proteins for elasticity and tone — elastin and collagen — and the production of these proteins naturally wanes with each passing year. Starting in your 30s, you lose 1% of your collagen each year, which can quickly add up.

What all of this means is that every time you squint, smile, frown, or furrow your brow, your skin doesn’t bounce back as it used to, leaving expression lines to become permanently etched into your skin.

How do neuromodulators such as Botox work?

With Botox, the North Tarrant Surgical & Aesthetics team delivers a botulinum toxin into the muscles that are responsible for creating the lines and wrinkles on the top half of your face, temporarily relaxing them. The team uses Botox to address the following areas:

  • Your forehead lines
  • Your crow’s feet
  • Your frown lines

This FDA-approved injectable takes only minutes – often less than 10 – for your provider to administer, and there’s no downtime afterward, which means you’re free to get on with your day.

When will I see results after my Botox treatment?

In most patients, Botox goes to work quickly, often smoothing out your wrinkles and fine lines in 3-4 days. Patients can expect full results in 14 days. That said, everyone responds differently, so this timeline may be slightly more or less.

You may experience some slight bruising at the injection site immediately after your visit with the North Tarrant Surgical & Aesthetics team, but this resolves itself quickly.

Most patients enjoy up to four months of results with Botox, and then they simply return to North Tarrant Surgical & Aesthetics for follow-up treatment.
