How Does BOTOX® Work?

Frown lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, etc. are caused by repeated muscle contraction. This happens whenever you make facial expressions, such as frowning, smiling, squinting, or raising your eyebrow. As time goes on, these signs of aging become more apparent and depending on your circumstance, can make you look older than you indeed are or are at heart.

To make these signs of aging temporarily disappear or soften, we recommend BOTOX® in Manhattan. So, how does BOTOX® work? Let’s find out:


What Is BOTOX® Made Of?

The active ingredient in a BOTOX® injection is botulinum toxin. This toxin is derived from Opens new tab to Medical New Today articleClostridium botulinum, an organism found in our natural environment: soil, lakes, and forests.


A BOTOX® injection uses an extremely small dosage of botulinum toxin powder and saline for dilution.

When injected into your neuromuscular tissue, it will block signals from your nerve cells to your facial muscles. This will cause your facial muscles to relax and soften instead of contract.

What Is the Procedure for BOTOX® Injections?

BOTOX® is quick, and often completed within 15 minutes. It’s a perfect add-on to your dental appointment.


How it works: Prior to receiving treatment, you will meet with one of our BOTOX® specialists to discuss your goals and areas of concern.

At your appointment, you will relax in the same dental chair you receive dental care from. If needed, we can administer a topical anesthetic to numb the injection areas beforehand. Once prepared, we will inject BOTOX® with a tiny needle to the designated areas.

The appointment and aftercare is so simple that it’s often referred to as a lunch break procedure.

How Long Does It Take to See Results from BOTOX®?

With BOTOX in Manhattan, you may begin to see results in as little as 24 hours. Most patients see full results in one to two weeks.


If you have a big event coming up like a wedding, gala, or graduation, we recommend coming in for BOTOX® treatment at least two weeks in advance.

How soon will you see BOTOX® results?

You may begin to see results within 24 to 48 hours. However, you can expect to see full results in one to two weeks.


If you have a big event coming up, we recommend coming in for a BOTOX® treatment at least two weeks prior.

How long does BOTOX® last?

You can expect the effects of BOTOX® to last between three to six months. Toward the end, your muscles will regain action, and lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear. This is when we recommend coming in for another treatment.


As you continue using BOTOX®, you may find your lines and wrinkles reappear less severe because the muscles are shrinking.

How often should you get BOTOX®?

To maintain a youthful, wrinkle-free appearance, our BOTOX® experts in Manhattan recommend getting a touch-up when the effects begin to wear off. This will vary from patient to patient, but typically it is around four months.


By staying up-to-date with BOTOX® treatments, your muscles will not be able to regain strength, which will lessen the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

Will my face look natural with BOTOX®?

If you are worried about achieving natural-looking results with BOTOX®, then you’ve come to the right place.


We believe BOTOX® should restore your youthful appearance and hide the hands of time. It should not give you a frozen look, uneven eyebrows, or  dramatic, unnatural results.

We also utilize our knowledge and experience in dentistry to understand better how your face is supported and how it will react to BOTOX®.
