FAQs About Botox

Home > Blog > Ageless Advice > FAQs About Botox

Have you ever wondered why it seems like so many famous people age gracefully, or worse don’t seem to age at all? Aging is something that we all face and if you’re wondering if Botox could be a solution, you probably have a fair number of questions. Here are a few common ones that can help you decide if this cosmetic treatment is right for you.


  • What is Botox? The organism name is actually Clostridium botulinum and is found naturally in the environment. It is inactive and non-toxic. When injected, Botox blocks nerve signals to specific muscles, which then relax.
  • Is Botox Safe? There are more than 6 million treatments done every year, making Botox the single most popular option for dealing with fine lines and wrinkles. Although it is relatively safe, it should always be done by a qualified professional to get proper results. There are some rare side-effects, as well as a few minimal concerns, so it is important to go over these with your Botox professional before proceeding.
  • Is Botox Permanent? No, the results obtained from Botox are temporary, lasting for roughly four to six months. It takes anywhere from a few hours to about a week to see the results, and if you find you like the line-free look, you can repeat Botox a few times a year.
