Botox Q&A

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable used to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other unwelcome signs of aging using safe and FDA-approved botulinum toxin type A. Botox helps you achieve your aesthetic goals without pain, downtime, or surgery. It’s highly effective. Dr. Bickman tailors each treatment to your needs.

What benefits does Botox offer?

Botox offers the following benefits:

  • Reductions in crow’s feet
  • Reduced forehead lines
  • Diminished smile lines
  • Smoother and tighter skin
  • Younger-looking appearance
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Fewer migraines
  • Reductions in excess sweating
  • Diminished lazy eye
  • Less eye twitching

Botox can improve your quality of life and overall well-being. Dr. Bickman is highly trained in Botox and other cosmetic injections. 

Is Botox right for me?

Botox is safe and effective for all skin types. Dr. Bickman tailors a treatment plan based on your goals. She might combine Botox with dermal fillers, laser treatments, or other cosmetic solutions to provide the most benefits. She lets you know what to expect and how to prepare.

What happens when receiving Botox?

When receiving Botox injections, you relax in a comfortable room. Dr. Bickman cleans the area and numbs it if needed to optimize comfort. She injects Botox in strategic areas of your face or body to relax targeted muscles and achieve your health or beauty goals.

While you often need multiple Botox injections during the procedure, each takes just a minute or two.

What can I expect after Botox injections?

After Botox injections, you can expect mild redness or swelling at the injection sites. Ice the area if needed to maximize comfort. Since there’s no downtime after Botox treatments, you can resume your daily routine immediately. Avoid touching the treatment area to reduce the chance of spreading Botox to other areas of your body.

How long will my results last?

The results after Botox treatment often last 3-5 months, though you may receive repeat injections to maintain a younger appearance. Dr. Bickman will let you know when to schedule your next treatment session. Call her office any time should you have questions.
