Botox Q & A
What is Botox?
Botox (botulinum toxin) is a neurotoxin that can be used to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, smooth your skin, and treat underarm sweating. Also known as hyperhidrosis, underarm sweating can be an uncomfortable problem.
To combat underarm sweating, Botox temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate your sweat glands. The sweating stops in the treated areas when your glands no longer receive the signals. Botox can minimize severe underarm sweating for up to six months or more.
To treat wrinkles, Botox works by preventing nerve signals to the injected muscles, minimizing muscular activity that causes lines to form. The wrinkle-reducing effects last up to four months or longer. The effects of Botox wear off within four months, so you need to return to the office for another treatment.

What are injectables?
Injectables are an effective non-surgical method to diminish facial lines and wrinkles and reveal a more youthful-looking complexion.
With aging, your face can naturally lose subcutaneous fat and the facial muscles can work closer to the skin’s surface, making facial lines more apparent. Over time, the facial skin can stretch and repeated muscle contractions and movement can lead to creases, wrinkles, and fine lines in your skin.
How do injectables work?
Injectables contain a neurotoxin or a neuromuscular blocking agent that’s typically derived from a bacterium, such as Clostridium botulinum. When injected into specific areas of your face, such as the forehead, the precise small doses of the neurotoxin blocks signals from your nerves to your muscles to target wrinkles.
The injected muscle can’t contract and the wrinkles relax and soften. Sublime Aesthetic Professionals uses injectables to soften wrinkles and facial creases on the forehead, around the eyes, and more.
You can discuss your goals and ask any questions you might have about injectables during your consultation with your Sublime aesthetic specialist.
