What is Botox?

Botox is an injection that contains a purified protein that comes from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. When injected in small amounts in the right places, Botox stops muscle movement or the transmission of nerve signals from the injection site to the brain to block activity.


My NP is a family and occupational medicine practice that takes a holistic and patient-centered approach to care and offers Botox treatments.

What does Botox treat?

Most people know Botox as an anti-aging treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. But Botox has many uses, including treatments for the following:


  • Severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Cervical dystonia (neck and shoulder muscle contractions)
  • Uncontrollable blinking (blepharospasm)
  • Chronic migraines
  • Strabismus
  • Overactive bladder


Botox also treats moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles that form around the eyes and on the forehead, including crow’s feet, frown lines, and worry lines. 

What happens during Botox injections?

The team at My NP customizes your Botox injections to match your health concerns and goals. They review the details of your Botox treatment before getting started, so you know what to expect. 


Injections take only a few minutes and require no downtime. Your provider cleans your skin with an antiseptic agent while you relax in the treatment chair. Then, they carefully and expertly inject small amounts of Botox into the desired areas. 


You may feel a slight pinching when the needle goes into your skin, but the needle is small, and the pain is fleeting. After your Botox treatments, you can go back to your normal routine. 


However, the team may recommend you skip intense cardiovascular workouts for at least two hours following your Botox treatments to reduce the risk of bruising.

What happens after Botox injections?

Botox injections don’t work right away. You may notice improvements in your health concerns within a few days or up to 30 days. For some health issues, like chronic migraines, you may need a few Botox injection treatments before you get relief.


Botox injections last three to 12 months, depending on the reason for use. The team recommends returning to the office for additional injections when you notice the effects wearing off.
