BOTOX is a prescription drug made from Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is primarily used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by blocking signals from your nerves to your muscles, preventing them from contracting. This causes wrinkles to relax and soften, giving you a more youthful appearance.
If so, you’re in good company. The pandemic has us looking at ourselves on video chats more than ever before and many people see room for improvement when it comes to their facial wrinkles.
According to a survey conducted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 11% of women report that they are more interested in cosmetic plastic surgery or non-surgical cosmetic procedures (like BOTOX) now than they were before COVID-19.
What Does BOTOX do?
BOTOX injections are most useful in treating:
- Frown lines between your eyebrows
- Crow’s feet by the corners of your eyes
- Forehead furrows

What to Expect During the Procedure
Administering BOTOX injections takes just a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia. A numbing medication or cream can be applied to the skin beforehand if you’re worried about discomfort. Your nurse injector will use a thin needle to inject a small dose of BOTOX into your skin or specific muscles.
Results usually take a few days to appear and will last anywhere from three to twelve months. Maintenance injections are needed if you wish to continue treatment beyond the initial dose.
Side effects are rare, but temporary bruising at the injection site is common. However, BOTOX can be dangerous if it is administered improperly. That’s why you’ll want to choose a skilled and certified Nurse Injector or Doctor who is experienced with BOTOX injections-like our Nurse Injector Kari Dietrich at ENT Aesthetics.
