Common Questions

What is Botox?
Botox is a brand name of the protein made by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. When injected into the skin, Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, which allows the facial muscles to relax. This helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face for a smoother look. 

What brands of neuromodulators do you offer?
We offer two brands of neuromodulators: Botox and Xeomin. Both brands are shown to be very similar in efficacy. The main difference is that Xeomin does not contain any additive proteins that could potentially cause allergic reactions. If you’re not sure which brand is right for you, your Modern Age clinician can help. 

How long do results last?
Results can last anywhere from 2 to 6 months. On average, they last between 3 and 4 months. The duration of your results depends on factors such as where the neuromodulator (or “wrinkle relaxer”) was injected, the dosage, and your body's own individual processes. Typically, results in the areas of your face that are thinner or that move most frequently will be the first to wear off, such as the corners of your eyes and lips. Results in the forehead and between the eyebrows typically last the longest.
Is it true that once you start getting Botox, you can’t stop? 
No. How often you treat your wrinkles is completely up to you and your personal skin goals. When the wrinkle relaxers wear off, your face muscles will go back to making the same movement they did before, but your wrinkles won’t be any deeper than they were before treatment. In fact, your wrinkles will form more slowly than they would have otherwise. 
If you want to keep seeing the effects consistently, we recommend coming in for another treatment after 3 months. But many people choose to let their results wear off completely and then come in for another treatment when ready. 
How long will it stay in my system?
Your body metabolizes the Botox over 3-4 months and flushes it out of your system as muscle movement gradually returns.

Will it take time to recover?
After treatment, you should avoid lying down for 4 hours, and avoid exercising, drinking alcohol, and putting on makeup for 24 hours. You also shouldn’t get a facial for at least a week. Other than that, most people return to their everyday activities immediately.

What are the possible side effects?
Side effects tend to be mild and temporary. The injections, rather than the neuromodulator itself, cause most mild side effects. For example, a patient may occasionally bruise. If this happens, the bruising lasts about 1 week. After receiving injections, people have experienced swelling, redness, soreness, bruising, mild headache (uncommon), weakness in a neighboring muscle leading to a temporarily droopy brow or eyelid (rare), or signs and symptoms of botulism including problems breathing, swallowing, or speaking (very rare). 

I'm pregnant or nursing. Can I be treated with Botox & Wrinkle Relaxers?
We recommend avoiding neuromodulator treatments during pregnancy and while nursing.

Is there a discount for getting treatment in multiple areas?
Yes, we offer 15% off when you get wrinkle relaxers in two areas or more. 

Do you perform “lip flips”?
Yes, we do. Lips tend to lose volume naturally as we age, so a lip flip treatment can help restore fullness, define your upper lip, or improve a gummy smile. When getting a lip flip, your clinician will inject a neuromodulator into your upper lip, causing the muscles in the area to relax. This allows the lips to relax and curl outward, giving the appearance of a fuller, more defined shape. Unlike filler, the lip flip does not add volume.
