Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is an industry-leading, FDA-approved cosmetic injectable for dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form as a result of repeated facial expressions. As the muscle underneath your skin continually contracts, it forms creases in your skin.

Some of the most common dynamic wrinkles are:

  • Forehead lines
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet

Botox treats all of these wrinkles, smoothing them for months at a time. When your board-certified dermatologist injects a carefully controlled amount of Botox into the muscle that causes your wrinkle, it temporarily paralyzes the muscle. This relaxes the muscle’s contraction, allowing the skin over the muscle to smooth.

The results from a Botox injection can last three months or more. 

What is Jeuveau?

Jeuveau is a newer player in the game, but more and more people are choosing it to smooth the dynamic wrinkles developing between their eyebrows. If you have frown lines, this FDA-approved injectable could be right for you. 

Jeuveau and Botox work similarly. Talk with the team at Yolanda C. Holmes, M.D. P.C., about your skin goals and they can help you choose the right cosmetic injectable for your dynamic wrinkles. 

What is the Botox or Jeuveau treatment process like?

Convenience accounts for a large part of the reason both Botox and Jeuveau are so popular. While you and your dermatologist take time to discuss your cosmetic goals and determine which treatments are right for you, once you decide on Botox or Jeuveau, the actual treatment takes just minutes. 

As the results from Botox or Jeuveau fade, you can return to Yolanda C. Holmes, M.D. P.C., for a quick touchup treatment. Because you and your provider have already discussed your aesthetic goals, this appointment can take as little as 15 minutes. 

You don’t have to worry about any downtime with Jeuveau or Botox, either. After your appointment, you can immediately head to work, a social engagement, or wherever else your day may take you. 

Deepening creases don’t have to make your face look older or more serious. Smooth those lines from your face by calling Yolanda C. Holmes, M.D. P.C., or booking your appointment online today.
