There’s no denying that one of the most prominent signs of aging is when the face develops wrinkles and facial creases. For some people, those facial changes occur due to over-exposure to the sun, and for others, genetics can play a part.
Although some products like over-the-counter creams claim to help “reverse” those unwanted facial changes, they seldom boast dramatic results. Thankfully, there’s a minimally-invasive alternative that offers real results: Botox®.
Botox® is a non-surgical alternative to cosmetic surgery offered by Dr. Farole at his facial cosmetic practice in Bala Cynwyd, PA. Learn more below about how long Botox® takes to work and the treatment’s benefits.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox® is a simple injectable cosmetic treatment that dramatically reduces wrinkles and facial creases.
Each Botox® injection contains onabotulinumtoxinA, a neurotoxin that works by blocking a nerve’s ability to make muscles contract. Each Botox® injection is tiny, ensuring that only specific target areas get treated to create a natural result.
Botox® treatments are ideal for diminishing wrinkles and fine lines on the face, especially ones which are most prominent when you smile, laugh or frown. Botox® is a leading non-surgical cosmetic treatment offered in the United States and abroad.
When Will You See Your Botox® Results?
One of the advantages of having Botox® injections is the results can be seen in just three to five days after your treatment session. Millions of Americans opt for Botox® treatments because they work much faster than traditional alternatives.
The full effects of your Botox® injections are typically noticeable around 10 to 14 days after your treatment. That makes it ideal to quickly get rid of visible forehead lines, “crow’s feet,” and frown lines between your brows, for example.
Most people have top-up treatments spaced several months apart to continue enjoying the results that Botox® offers.

Benefits of Botox®
Botox® is a safe, FDA-cleared cosmetic treatment. It’s minimally invasive, and there is no surgery or anesthesia involved in each treatment session.
Each Botox® treatment session can take just ten minutes at Dr. Farole’s facial cosmetic practice. You can technically have Botox® in your lunch break and go back to work afterward.
Another advantage of Botox® is there is no downtime associated with the treatment. If you wear makeup, you can continue to apply it to your face as usual immediately after your treatment session.
Lastly, the results of Botox® are long-lasting. The effects wear off around three months after the treatment. However, if you opt for top-up treatments, the effects can last as long as four to six months.
Who Is a Candidate for Botox®?
You could be a candidate for Botox® if you experience wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and other facial skin changes caused by aging, sun exposure, or other reasons. Botox® is suitable for adults of all ages.
Botox® is also effective at treating temporomandibular joint (TMJ) jaw problems caused by teeth grinding or arthritis.
