Botox®

Rid yourself of frown lines and look more refreshed

BOTOX® FAQ

Is BOTOX® right for me?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.

What happens during a BOTOX® Treatment?

During a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, small controlled doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected directly into a specific muscle, effectively paralyzing it. By doing so, the problem caused by the muscle, such as crow’s feet or frown lines will cease. With each injection you will feel a needle prick, then a mild stinging or burning for a few seconds as the medicine flows into the muscle. A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment takes about 10 minutes.

What results should I anticipate?

After the procedure, you are ready to get on with your day. There is no recovery time needed. Results are evident in 3-7 days. Over 3-5 months following the treatment, the effect fades and muscle action returns. If the lines begin to reappear, a quick and easy repeat BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is all that is required to keep your face free of creases and wrinkles.

What can I expect post-surgery?

BOTOX® results can be expected in 3-7 days after the procedure. For the best results, we ask that patients refrain from use of aspirin and aspirin like products, vitamin E and fish and/or garlic oil 7-10 prior to the procedure. Taking these from your diet prior to will decrease your chance of bruising and optimize your result.
