Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox a purified form of botulinum toxin. The treatment works by temporarily weakening your muscles, preventing wrinkles from forming and smoothing away existing ones. 

Mudgil Dermatology offers Botox as part of a complete anti-aging strategy. Botox also treats excessive sweating under your arms or on the palms of your hands. 

Where can I get Botox injections?

Botox works well on the most common areas where you notice signs of aging, including:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow's feet
  • Frown lines

Dr. Mudgil also uses Botox to soften wrinkles around your lips and lines on your chin.

Who is a candidate for Botox?

Dr. Mudgil at Mudgil Dermatology reviews your medical history during your initial consultation to make sure that Botox is appropriate for you. Botox might not be suitable for you if you’re:

  • Pregnant
  • Breastfeeding
  • Allergic to certain ingredients

You also shouldn’t have Botox injections if you have ALS or other conditions affecting your muscles or nerves.

Be sure to tell Dr. Mudgil about all of the medications you’re taking, including vitamins and supplements. Some medications may make you bruise easily, and you’ll want to avoid taking these drugs before your Botox appointment at Mudgil Dermatology. 

What happens when I get Botox?

Dr. Mudgil analyzes the muscles of your face to determine the appropriate treatment areas. He may ask you to frown or scowl as he administers your Botox injections. The needle might sting a tiny bit. 

Botox injections usually take just 10 minutes, with minimal downtime. Dr. Mudgil gives you a small ice pack to hold against your injection sites to minimize any redness or swelling. 

When do I see results from Botox?

It takes about 3-5 days for you to begin seeing your results. You should notice maximum results in about a week or two, although results vary. 

How long does injectable Botox last?

Your results typically last 3-6 months, although results vary. Because Botox isn’t permanent, you can expect your lines and wrinkles to slowly return unless you regularly update your injections at Mudgil Dermatology.
