What Is BOTOX?
As one of the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world, BOTOX has become a household word. Many people, however, aren’t sure exactly how it works and the number of conditions it can treat.
There are several reasons why facial wrinkles develop. Forehead wrinkles and the “worry lines” between the eyes are “dynamic wrinkles,” caused by the repeated contractions of tiny muscles. BOTOX minimizes these wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles. When administered with skill and precision by a highly trained physician such as Dr. Strock, the result is a relaxed, rested appearance that can takes years off of the appearance of the face.
Good Candidates for BOTOX
Most patients considering BOTOX injections are concerned about early signs of aging that typically include horizontal forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, and the vertical lines just above the bridge of the nose (often called “worry lines” or “frown lines”).

Frequently Asked Questions
Do BOTOX treatments hurt?
How someone tolerates discomfort is highly personal, but the vast majority of BOTOX patients report minimal discomfort during BOTOX treatments. The procedure typically lasts only about 10 minutes, and we typically numb the area with a cold compress first. The needles used for BOTOX injections are very small, and most people describe the injection as comparable to a little pinch. Post-injection redness and tenderness are common, but temporary.
Are the results immediate?
Patients shouldn’t expect to see results right away. Although response times vary from patient to patient, BOTOX usually begins to reduce frown lines and wrinkles within 3 to 5 days. In some cases it can take up to a week. The final results may take 2 weeks to fully emerge.
How long do the results last?
Patients may see noticeable results for as long as 3 to 4 months, and regularly scheduled injections help keep lines at bay. Studies suggest results may last longer with repeated treatments.
When is a filler a better option than BOTOX?
Dr. Strock recommends the best treatment option during an initial consultation. Dermal fillers fill in wrinkles and restore volume to areas of the face that have lost it, such as the cheeks, under-eye area, and around the mouth. BOTOX relaxes certain muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. When strategically combined, the results can be dramatic.
