How BOTOX® Is Administered

BOTOX® can be performed in Dr. Machida’s medical office, and injections are often administered in less than 30 minutes. As simple as it might seem, BOTOX® requires a great amount of skill to administer. There are dozens of muscles in the face, and Dr. Machida needs to target the specific muscles responsible for creating expression lines while ensuring the results look as natural as possible.Before each injection, Dr. Machida thoroughly analyzes the face and plans for the right volume of treatment to be delivered.Then, the face is cleaned up and a local anesthetic is applied. After that, Dr. Machida will deliver the injections.

Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX® & Dysport®

BOTOX® is a neuromodulator— a substance that prevent the muscles from receiving signals from the brain. By doing this, neuromodulators soften the appearance of expression lines, the wrinkles that form thanks to years of repeated facial expressions and muscle contractions.Neuromodulators essentially cause certain facial muscles to become perpetually relaxed, which makes their corresponding wrinkles much less prominent.
BOTOX® treatments are not painful at all. The neuromodulators are delivered using an incredibly fine needle, and they contain lidocaine in the formula to help with any discomfort. Patients can also have the treatment area numbed if they’re especially sensitive to needles.At Second to Creation, our patients can rest assured that Dr. Machida, a skilled and experienced injector, will deliver their treatment with their utmost safety and comfort in mind.

The effects of BOTOX® tend to last for 3-4 months at a time. Many patients undergo multiple treatments a year to maintain their results.

BOTOX® has a few temporary side effects that dissipate after a few days:
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Soreness
There is no downtime required for BOTOX®.
It will all depend on whether you received BOTOX® and how well your body responds to the treatment. On average, patients tend to see their full results about a week after their treatment.
If you’re having your crow’s feet treated, you will get 3 injections near the eye. If you’re having your frown lines treated, then you’ll receive at least 5 injections in the forehead.BOTOX® is known as one of the most reliable and effective cosmetic treatments in the industry, but its results still depend on how skilled your injector is. Don’t trust your BOTOX® treatment to anyone less than a facial plastic surgery specialist like Dr. Machida.
