botox frequently asked questions

Is it a painful process?

Most patients experience little to no pain at all! The needles used for injection are smaller than average needles. Those who are very sensitive to pain may request a topical anesthetic but in most cases, it isn’t necessary.

How long is the injection procedure?

On average, a treatment can take about 30 minutes with the actual injection process taking about 10 minutes. Quick right!? You will then see noticeable results within 2-3 days and full results after 7-14 days.

Will it make my face look stiff or frozen?

This is actually a very common misconception about Botox. After a Botox Cosmetic treatment, completed by a professional, your face will likely feel more firm and smooth but you will definitely be able to make facial expressions without looking frozen. Your face muscles will not be paralyzed.

How long will the results last?

Results will last about 3-4 months. The effects last even when the Botox wears off but you can definitely come back for another treatment to restore previously treated areas.

Are there any side effects?

Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved. Those who receive injections very, very rarely experience side effects. Common side effects include: swelling or bruising at injection site, headaches, rash, nausea or flu-like symptoms. If the injections are not done properly, more serious side effects such as dry eye or excessive tearing, eyelid droop, crooked smile, problems swallowing or decreased eyesight. This is why it is extremely important to have a professional administer the injections. For more detailed safety information you can check the Botox Cosmetic’ site.
