What Exactly Does Botox Do?
Botox injections in Dripping Springs is a neuromodulator, and its substances work by relaxing the muscles that are responsible for repeating motions that lead to dynamic wrinkles. These ingredients target the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signaling processes that activate muscle contraction. This is how the drug causes short-term muscle paralysis.
What Happens During Botox Treatment?
Prior to making a session for treatment, your provider will take the time to sit along with you to answer all questions and tackle any concerns you might have. You can choose then if you want to have a cold-press or numbing cream applied pre-treatment. During your consultation, Skin Bar’s very own board-certified provider Julie Bennett will also examine your medical background alongside all the possible treatment results and any other treatments that may be helpful, if not better for you based on your personal skin requirements and desired goals.
Botox injections uses a very fine needle. A lot of patients consider these to be generally painless, comparing the feeling to that of a very fine “pinch” resulting from the needle piercing the skin area. The therapy itself takes only ten minutes or less, and you are free to go about your normal daily activities as soon as you leave the office.
Does Botox Damage your face?
Studies have proven that Botox, when utilized in low but effective doses, does not damage your face but rather is a short-term paralyzation of the microscopic muscle nerve endings.
However, if you choose over-do botox, you run the risk of freezing your face and having no motion when you show expression, and you will not look like your natural self. This risk of looking expressionless and unnatural will only happen if you go to a facial injector who injects large amounts of botox at once, and you regularly return to get large amounts of the botox injected month after month.

How long does Botox last?
What happens when Botox wears off? Will it lead to looking older? From a medical perspective, when the effects of Botox wear off, your face will never look older. But eventually, the action of the neurotoxin will wear off, and the nerves will again have the ability to send those signals towards the muscles to start working or contracting. Generally, Botox can last 3-4 months. To make an appointment at Skin Bar – Click Here
There will definitely be patients in which it lasts longer, in that 4-6 month duration, or shorter, in that 2-month range. Additionally, it is common for first-timers to see that it may not last as long at first but may last longer following the second treatment. Everyone has a unique experience, and outcomes can vary greatly.
