Common Botox Questions & Answers
Which brand of Botox is the best?
Actually, there is only one Botox! It is manufactured and distributed by a company called Allergan. In fact, you can’t legally buy it from any other place in the US. We buy all of our injectables products directly from Allergan and maintain a healthy relationship with our Allergan team.
Can Botox help “lift” or “open” my eyes?
Yes! First, your medical provider must have a working knowledge of the tiny muscles around the eye and how they interact with one another. Second, they must know where to place the Botox so that the muscles that “lift” the brow are able to continue functioning at a level that naturally lifts the brow. Many times this technique can go wrong, and that is where you see some individuals that “look” like they have had something done. Again, you must seek out a knowledgeable injector, like Dr. Naegele, to ensure these types of results are avoided.
When does Botox start working?
In most of the clinical literature, Botox can take up to 2 weeks to see the full effect. That is why most practices ask that you wait the full two weeks before making a decision about the final result. However, most patients emphatically state that they feel it is working much sooner than that timeframe. The honest answer is it unique to each individual and that person’s own genetic makeup.
Does a Botox treatment hurt?
Imagine the tiniest needle on the market that you can push liquid through. That is what we use to inject Botox. The vast majority of patients barely feel the injections in our clinic. However, if you are someone that dislikes the idea of needles, then we use other methods to assist your anxiety. Generally, we can apply topical numbing cream or even ice to help reduce any discomfort you might feel during the treatment.
