What is the Botox® Treatment Like?

The Botox® treatment is fairly simple, and begins with the application of a topical anesthetic. This will reduce any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. After the skin is numbed, Botox® will be injected into the desired treatment areas. This process takes only a few minutes, which means the full Botox® treatment is typically complete in less than 30 minutes.

What is Recovery Like After Botox®?

There is no recovery period or downtime necessary after the Botox® treatment. You may experience minor redness or swelling in the treatment area, but these effects are temporary and will usually fade within a day or two. You’ll be able to resume all normal activities immediately after your treatment.

What Results Can I Expect from Botox®?

You can expect to notice results from Botox® within a week of your treatment, after the formula begins to take effect in the body. You can enjoy a reduction in wrinkles in the treated area for as long as the formula is active, which is typically about four to six months. After this time, many patients choose to receive maintenance treatments to increase the duration of their results.
