What is Botox?

Botox | Dysport | Xeomin are all purified and safe forms of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin A. By
injecting a very small amount of this medication into the muscle(s) that cause
specific wrinkles, the nerve signal needed to contract these muscles is blocked.
This relaxes the muscle contraction, smoothing the skin overlying the muscle(s).
The result is that your wrinkles and deep furrows soften and, in some cases
virtually disappear.

Botox has been used to safely treat cosmetic changes since FDA approval in the
early 2000s. It is currently the most common cosmetic procedure done in the
United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.


The procedure itself generally takes 5-10 minutes of your time and involves no
post-injection downtime.

The desired area for treatment will be cleaned and prepped using rubbing
alcohol. The needle used to inject the medication is extremely small and most
patients report little to no discomfort during treatment. Each location of treatment
generally involves 3-6 “pokes” and is completed in just a few minutes.
Traditionally it is used to treat furrows between the eyebrows (glabella), forehead
wrinkles, and “crows feet” around the eyes.

All treatments provided through Root Medical Aesthetics LLC are
performed by a certified physician assistant.


There is virtually no downtime or recovery time needed following this procedure, but it is recommended that you remain upright, avoid engaging in strenuous physical activity, and avoid touching the areas treated for at least 4 hours after treatment. You may notice some initial redness and puffiness in the treated area, which typically subsides over the subsequent hour.

Within 3-5 days, you will start to notice a more rested appearance, with the best effects noticed approximately 10-days after the treatment. Contrary to popular belief, you can have a full range of facial expressions with neuromodulator treatments.
