Botox Q&A

How does Botox work? 

Botox stands as one of the pioneering FDA-approved anti-aging injectable treatments renowned for its remarkable effects. This transformative treatment can quickly:


  • Smooth out crow's feet
  • Diminish the appearance of forehead wrinkles
  • Minimize frown lines between your brows


When administered into muscles that are used to make certain facial expressions -- like muscles that cause frown lines and other wrinkles -- Botox blocks certain nerve signals that make those muscles contract. 

While you'll retain the ability to make natural facial expressions, your muscles become more relaxed. Consequently, your skin naturally smoothes, gradually fading imperfections.


When will the results from my Botox treatment be noticeable? 

Botox's popularity at Elite Women's Care is partly attributed to its quick results. Many patients leave the clinic with noticeably smoother skin after their Botox treatment. 

In some instances, slight swelling or redness may occur around the injection site, but these effects typically dissipate quickly. Optimal benefits become evident within 48 hours.


Do Botox injections hurt? 

Generally, any type of injection may induce a mild stinging sensation. Botox is no exception, but its fine and thin needles typically result in only a slight pinch, rather than pain or severe discomfort. 

At times, the skilled esthetic team at Elite Women's Care may recommend applying a topical numbing cream or an ice pack to the treatment area about 20-30 minutes before your appointment. This helps minimize any sensation, allowing you to relax comfortably during the procedure.


How long will my Botox treatment last? 

Botox's effects are temporary, so regular treatments at Elite Women's Care are needed to maintain smoother skin. You can expect optimal results to last for up to four months before a follow-up treatment is required.
