Botox Q & A

What does Botox do?

Botox is an FDA-approved neuromodulator injectable. It’s a concentrated solution of purified botulinum toxins that stop specific signals that make your muscles contract. Botox essentially paralyzes muscles — only temporarily — which minimizes muscle tension and contractions.

As a cosmetic treatment, by relaxing your muscles, Botox encourages your skin to smooth out. Alternatively, as a medical treatment for migraine, Botox helps tense neck muscles relax, which is highly beneficial for resolving serious headache pain. 

Which areas does a doctor treat with Botox?

Because Family Medicine and Mohr provides both medical and cosmetic Botox treatments, Dr. Mohr can personalize your service to your unique needs. For migraine attacks, for example, Dr. Mohr injects Botox into precise muscle locations in the back of your neck and around your head for fast migraine relief and long-lasting prevention.

If you’re getting cosmetic Botox injections, Dr. Mohr tailors your treatment to minimize the appearance of:

  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines (in between your brows).

Dr. Mohr also offers Juvéderm® services. Juvéderm is a collection of clinical-grade fillers that restore age-related volume loss and add volume to areas where you lack fullness, such as your lips. You’re able to pair Juvéderm with Botox injections — known as a “liquid face-lift” — or you can opt for Juvéderm as a standalone service.

How long does it take Botox to wear off?

Botox isn’t permanent, although it is quite long-lasting. Botox for migraine treatments from Family Medicine and Mohr usually incorporate one set of injections about once every 12 weeks. Ongoing Botox injections can cut your monthly headache days in half and lessen the severity of migraine pain.

Cosmetic Botox injections tend to leave you with optimal results and a more youthful appearance for as long as three to four months. Or if you’re getting Juvéderm fillers, you can expect your results to last for anywhere from 12-24 months.
