Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved injectable neuromodulator that temporarily relaxes facial muscles. When your aesthetic specialist at Peach Skin & Laser injects Botox into the dynamic muscles that cause wrinkles, your skin becomes smooth and wrinkle-free again. 

Peach Skin & Laser uses Botox to smooth out:

  • Forehead wrinkles and furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet 

Botox is also effective on your lips, nose, lower face, neck, and even downturned smiles. 

If you have wrinkles that aren’t caused by dynamic muscles, your aesthetic professional may recommend dermal fillers.

How do muscles cause wrinkles?

Botox works to relax a type of muscle called a “dynamic muscle.” Dynamic muscles are constantly pushing your skin into creases and folds when you make facial expressions, like frowning, squinting, or raising your eyebrows.

When you’re younger, your skin is thick and pliable enough to return to its original shape after making an expression. As you age, the production of the proteins collagen and elastin decreases. Your skin becomes thinner, more delicate, and can’t bounce back into shape.  

Botox effectively erases wrinkles caused by dynamic muscles by relaxing the muscles so that they can’t press your skin into folds, resulting in smoother, line-free skin.

How long does Botox take to work?

Your wrinkles smooth out anywhere from a few days to two weeks after your treatment at Peach Skin & Laser. Typically, Botox lasts around three to four months.

Will Botox stop me from being expressive?

When administered by the trained injectors at Peach Skin & Laser, Botox stops your muscles from creating wrinkles, but not from making natural expressions. Your face is still naturally expressive, and your face will not have that "frozen" look.

What is Xeomin?

Xeomin® is another FDA-approved treatment that relaxes dynamic muscles. Xeomin contains only the single protein that acts as a neurotoxin and may be a better option for those with sensitivities. Xeomin takes about four days to take effect and lasts about four months.
