What to expect with Botox
BOTOX injections typically only take 10 minutes. Using a tiny micro-needle, a minuscule amount of serum is injected into the facial muscles. The needle used for the BOTOX is very thin, making sedation or local anesthetic unnecessary. Comfort is enhanced by applying a topical anesthetic or an ice pack a few minutes before the treatment.
Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after BOTOX as long as an upright position is maintained. However, you should not work out for several hours after your treatment. You may begin to notice slight changes within 24 to 48 hours, but full results may take up to 2 weeks.
Most individuals can expect significant wrinkle reduction for about 4 months following BOTOX injections. To maintain the desired effects, BOTOX should be repeated every 3 or 4 months. Results tend to be longer-lasting with subsequent treatments.
Side effects of BOTOX may include slight bruising at the injection site or a mild headache. These conditions are temporary and gradually subside within a day or two. Please contact us if symptoms last longer than 24 hours.
