We perform all Botox® procedures in our office. It involves injecting a small amount of the treatment into the targeted areas of your face using a fine needle. The injection is usually painless but can be mildly uncomfortable. We will apply a topical numbing cream or ice pack to minimize discomfort. The procedure typically takes 10 to 30 minutes, depending on the areas treated.
The Botox® procedure has minimal side effects and no downtime. You may experience some redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection sites, but these will subside within a few days. You can resume your normal activities right after the procedure. You will see immediate results lasting up to 4 months or longer, depending on the individual and the amount of Botox® used.
