What is Botox?

Botox is a type of neuromodulator that prevents muscle movement in specific areas of concern.

By stopping muscle movement, Botox can smooth out lines and wrinkles and prevent them from forming again.


At Select Family Practice and Urgent Care, Sallie Corse, PA-C specializes in Botox and can address your specific skin care concerns. Botox can also be used for chronic headaches or migraines. 

How does Botox treatment work?


Prior to receiving Botox injections, Sallie Corse, PA-C may ask you to squint your eyes, raise your eyebrows, or frown deeply. He then observes your facial movements to determine which areas may be ideal to treat with Botox.


Depending on the areas you wish to treat, Sallie Corse, PA-C can inject Botox into: 


  • Glabellar lines (between your eyebrows and nose)
  • Forehead lines
  • Crow’s feet (corners of your eyes)
  • Lip wrinkles


If you receive Botox for migraines or severe headaches, you’ll receive injections around your neck or head.


You typically receive multiple injections of Botox to treat your areas of concern. The injection process is quick, usually taking only a few minutes per area.

Does Botox hurt?


Botox injections are typically painless procedures, although you might feel a small pinch as Sallie Corse, PA-C inserts the thin needle. You can ask Sallie Corse, PA-C to numb the treatment areas before your injections if you have sensitive skin.


After your Botox treatment, you can apply an ice pack to the areas, which may help to minimize any swelling or redness. 


You might have minor swelling or bleeding after treatment, but it’s a normal part of the process and your side effects should subside within a few days. 

How long does it take to see Botox results?


Botox may take some time to see the full results, which might not happen until 2-4 weeks later. For some people, Botox can last for four months or more*. To maintain your results, you might be interested in follow-up treatments at Select Family Practice and Urgent Care. 


Sallie Corse, PA-C is a skin care specialist who can determine the number of treatments you’ll need to maintain your youthful look while still appearing as natural as possible.


He may also have other skin care recommendations to help you find long-term results from Botox. While Botox is effective for smoothing out lines and wrinkles, it’s equally important to take care of your skin.

If you’re interested in Botox for medical or cosmetic concerns, call Select Family Practice, or make an appointment online today.
