Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox is a brand name and it is used as a general term for an injectable treatment made from the neuromodulator protein botulinum toxin that temporarily reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
When using Dysport, Jeuveau or Botox on their clients, the Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa team studies every patient’s facial dynamics to provide consistent, natural-looking results. They can address existing signs of aging and also prevent wrinkles from being etched into the skin of their younger patients with preventive Botox, Dysport or Jeuveau.
Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa prefers Jeuveau® or Dysport® over the Botox brand. These are alternative treatments similar to Botox that primarily treats moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines and “Crow’s feet”.

How Does Botox Work?
Botox temporarily freezes the muscles it’s injected into, preventing those muscles from contracting. This stops the skin on top of those muscles from creasing, allowing your fine lines and wrinkles to soften while stopping new ones from forming. Botox wears off gradually, so the results look and feel natural.
Can Botox treat all wrinkles?
Because Botox paralyzes the muscles, it primarily treats dynamic wrinkles — lines that form due to repeated muscle movement. It does not treat static wrinkles, which develop due to volume loss. Dermal fillers address static wrinkles, and you can combine Botox or Jeuveau with fillers for a liquid facelift effect.
Some of the most popular treatment areas for Botox include:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Bunny lines
- Under-eye wrinkles
- Chin dimples
Botox can also treat excessive sweating, migraines, and jaw pain caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
How many units of Dysport, Botox or Jeuveau do I need?
For Jeuveau or Botox, 64 units is routinely used to treat the whole upper face: 20 units for the frown lines, 20 units for the whole forehead and 12 units on each side’s “crow’s feet”, for Dysport, since the unit numbers are different, 160 units is needed for the whole upper face, but as we know each person is different. During your consultation your provider (Dr. K) will go over the details of your treatment areas and will discuss this matter with you.
What can I expect from my Botox visit?
Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa strives to deliver the most natural results possible, so it’s important to visit the office for an initial consultation. During this visit, your provider studies your facial dynamics while you discuss which areas you want to treat.
At your next visit, they perform the injections. While you may feel a slight pinch, the treatment shouldn’t be overly painful. Within 24 to 48 hours, your wrinkles and lines begin to soften.
To ensure your treatment is working as planned, Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa always schedules a follow-up visit.
How long does Botox last?
Everybody’s skin is different, but Botox and Jeuveau typically start to wear off after three to four months, though the results can last as long as six months. They wear off gradually, and you can return to Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa for maintenance treatments to keep your wrinkles at bay.
Botox can help your skin achieve a smoother, younger-looking appearance while staving off future wrinkles. If you’re ready to try this safe, minimally invasive treatment, call the experts at Orchid Wellness and Medical Spa, or schedule an initial consultation online today.
