When you are considering Botox® treatment, it is important to know that Botox itself is a protein which is created in a lab. The fact that Botox is a protein means that it can disintegrate and break down quickly once you receive your Botox injection. Statistics show that Botox begins to break down approximately 15 minutes after it is injected into your body.

How Botox® Works
Your Botox® injection is administered by inserting a micro-needle into your preferred treatment area. It works by paralyzing your facial muscles which cause folds, creases or wrinkles; such as:
- Crow's Feet
- Brow Furrowing
- Vertical Brow Lines (called Glabellar lines)
Our Scottsdale Botox® patients report experiencing minimal pain and, if needed, our caring cosmetic surgery staff can apply a minute topical anesthetic.
How Safe Is Botox?
Botox has been FDA-approved since 1989. In order to achieve this, several very stringent requirements were passed and strict dosage guidelines recommended. Of course, your individual health and safety are first and foremost for our Scottsdale Botox® specialist, Dr. Paul Angelchik, MD. In order for your Botox® treatment to be administered as safely as possible, here are three tips:
- Be sure to receive your Botox injection from a qualified cosmetic surgeon.
- Get your treatment at reputable, caring, professional clinic.
- Check the FDA approval rating for your specific treatment source.
By following these three top tips, you will greatly reduce any risk of complication or infection from your Botox® treatment.
When to get Your Botox® Treatment
To determine if you are an ideal candidate for Botox, our caring, compassionate staff will first obtain your complete medical history and provide a thorough, physical examination. The only reasons why Botox would not be recommended include:
- History of cardiovascular disease
- High blood pressure
- Any motor neuropathy
- Ptosis (drooping eyelid due to disease or paralysis)
Of course, working with our qualified Scottsdale cosmetic surgeon is a step in the right direction to ensuring that your Botox® cosmetic treatments are safely applied and best medical practice followed.
