Botox Q & A

How does Botox work?

Botox is a neuromodulator that contains purified forms of botulinum toxins. Upon injection, the solution relaxes muscles by blocking the release of neuropeptide calcitonin gene-related polypeptides, which are compounds that act as neurotransmitters.

Once these neurotransmitters are blocked, cell signaling to and from your brain between muscles stops. This allows muscles to relax, which can minimize symptoms associated with a wide variety of chronic neurological conditions. 

What can Botox treat?

Botox Cosmetic is lauded for being an effective aesthetic treatment that can help eliminate unwanted signs of aging. Botox can be used to:

  • Eliminate lines and wrinkles 
  • Perform an eyebrow lift
  • Improve the appearance of your smile

Dr. Elyaderani also provides Botox injections for a wide variety of neurological conditions depending on your diagnosis. You may benefit from Botox injections if you experience:

  • Eye twitching 
  • Muscle spasms 
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Post-stroke spasticity 
  • Teeth grinding

Botox is entirely fast-acting. While you may have a little temporary soreness or swelling at the injection site, you should experience an improvement in your symptoms within a couple of days. 

Are Botox injections painful?

Dr. Elyaderani doesn’t want you to focus on the discomfort caused by the injections. While Botox sometimes leads to some minor stinging or pinching sensations, it shouldn’t cause serious pain. The injection needles are very small.

If you’re worried about discomfort or know you’re getting an injection in a sensitive area, like near your eyes, you can always apply a topical over-the-counter numbing cream to the area before your scheduled appointment.  

Is Botox long-lasting?

Yes! You should notice that your Botox injections provide lasting relief for up to three to four months. 

Because Botox is safe to use again and again, when you start noticing that your symptoms are coming back, you can return to Dr. Elyaderani for a retreatment. 

Not only are Botox injections highly effective and long-lasting, but treatments are also quick. Most Botox treatments take just 10-15 minutes.
