What Is Botox®?
Botox® is a cosmetic injectable treatment that reduces lines and wrinkles that are caused by contractions of the facial muscles. Known as “dynamic wrinkles,” these signs of aging most often develop on the forehead and around the eyes. Botox® contains an ingredient that temporarily relaxes the muscles, allowing the skin to relax as well. As this occurs, the wrinkles soften and are less visible.
The Nashville Botox® treatment is quick and painless. A small needle is used to inject Botox® into the muscles. You may feel a slight pinch on the skin as the needle is inserted. Dr. MaDan administers Botox® at several sites along the facial muscles to create a consistent reduction in wrinkles. Botox® can be used for:
- Lines that develop horizontally on the forehead
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Crow’s feet
What Are the Benefits of Botox®?
- No incisions or scars
- Treatment take less than 30 minutes
- Long-lasting results
What is the Recovery Time for Botox®?
Botox® treatments in Nashville do not require any downtime. You can come in for your treatment and then return to your normal day. The tissue at each injection site may feel tender, and you may have some minor swelling. These symptoms typically only last 24 to 48 hours. You see some initial improvement after the injections, and full results can take up to seven days.
We recommend that patients schedule follow-up treatments approximately every four months to maintain the anti-aging benefits of Botox®. The results of each treatment may last four to six months.

Can I wear makeup after Botox®?
Yes! You can wear makeup immediately after your Botox® treatment. However, the treatment area may be sensitive following your injections, so we typically advise patients to wait a few hours in order to prevent any additional stress to the treatment area.
At what age should I get Botox®?
There are benefits to receiving Botox® at nearly any age. Patients in their 20s can benefit from Botox® as an anti-aging treatment, preventing and prolonging the development of facial wrinkles. Patients who are in their 40s, 50s and beyond can also benefit from Botox® by diminishing wrinkles that have already formed, as well as preventing them from worsening. Therefore, if you are interested in preventing or diminishing signs of aging, you may be a good candidate for Botox® regardless of your age.
How do you make Botox® last longer?
One of the best ways to make your Botox® last longer is by limiting your sun exposure, and using the proper sunscreen when you are out in the sun. Additionally, we recommend scheduling regular treatments, and sticking to your Botox® regimen. Over time, regular Botox® injections can improve your results as the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles are repeatedly treated.
What shouldn’t you do after Botox®?
The most important thing to do after Botox® is avoid any touching, rubbing or massaging of the treatment area. Additionally, patients should avoid exercise, drugs and alcohol for at least 24 hours.
Is Botox® noticeable right away?
No, the effects of Botox® will take a few days to become noticeable. Generally, patients begin to notice results from Botox® within three or four days, with full results becoming noticeable within two weeks.
