Botox injections are one of the most famous treatments aimed at reducing wrinkles and preventing the formation of new unappealing lines. Botox is an injectable treatment used to relax the muscles that cause wrinkles, for example, the “angry line” between your brows, “worry lines” on your forehead, and “crow’s feet” around your eyes.
Reduce existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. Early maintenance with Botox will ensure your skin maintains its elasticity and natural collagen, reducing the chance for wrinkles as you age.
In order to enjoy the full array of benefits provided by Botox and keep your skin looking young and healthy, it is recommended to respect the maintenance tips provided by Dr. Gerstman.

The visibility of the lines and wrinkles will continue to improve in the next 30 days after the treatment. The results usually last for up to 3 to 4 months. Because individual results can vary, it is best to always work with a licensed Botox physician like Dr. Gerstman.
Although the timeliness of results varies from one patient to another, you should be able to notice the first effects of Botox 5 to 10 days following the treatment. On average, the full effects will become visible after 2 weeks, after which you should revisit your doctor to assess the success of the treatment. Any improvements or corrections needed are usually done at this point.
In order to maintain the smooth appearance of your skin, you’ll need to schedule Botox treatment appointments regularly. In the event that you choose to discontinue the treatment, then the muscles will regain their full strength, thus determining the corrected facial lines to return back to their previous form gradually.
Botox is a prescription treatment injected into the facial muscles in order to relax them and consequently, reduce the visibility of lines and wrinkles. The procedure should be performed by a licensed professional and is meant for people between 18 to 65 years old. More often than not, Botox treatments are recommended for patients who want to make moderate to severe wrinkles considerably less visible.
Some patients will experience mild adverse reactions following the treatment, especially at the injection site. These side effects are perfectly normal and can include mild bruising, swelling, muscle weakness, or redness.
Depending on your individual aesthetic needs, Dr. Gerstman will numb the site where the injection will be performed via topical anesthetic or an ice pack prior to the injection. The treatment usually takes around 10 minutes and has no downtime.
