How long does a Botox Treatment take?
Botox injections are very simple to perform and usually take less than five minutes per facial area. Using a tiny micro-needle, a minuscule amount of an FDA-approved serum containing botulinum toxin type A, is injected very precisely into select facial muscles.
Because the needle used for the Botox injection is very thin, no sedation or local anesthetic is necessary. Comfort is enhanced by applying a topical anesthetic or an ice pack a few minutes before the treatment.
Is there any recovery after botox injections?
Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after Botox injections as long as an upright position is maintained. However, you should not workout for 4 to 5 hours after your treatment. External pressure should not be applied to the area treated for about four or five hours as well.
What Do the Results of Botox Look Like?
Within one or two weeks of the Botox injection, the treated facial muscles become temporarily relaxed, causing the overlying skin to lay flat and unwrinkled. The untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing normal facial expression to be unaffected. Watch the videos below to see the amazing, rejuvenating results of Botox injections.
How Long Do The Results Of Botox Last?
Although results vary, most individuals can expect significant wrinkle reduction for about four months following the Botox injections. To maintain the desired wrinkle reduction effects, Botox injections can and should be repeated about every four or five months. The result tends to be longer- lasting with subsequent treatments.*
What Are The Side Effects Of Botox Injections?
Following a Botox treatment, some patients may experience mild bruising at the injection site, or a mild headache. These conditions are temporary and gradually subside within a day or two. In rare cases, when people do not keep their head upright, Botox may migrate and weaken nearby muscles. This may cause the eyebrow or upper eyelid to droop. This condition is temporary and corrects itself without treatment within several weeks.
Is Botox FDA-Approved For Cosmetic Treatment?
Yes! Botox is FDA-approved to treat the fine lines surrounding the eyes – more commonly called crow’s feet and the frown lines or glabella lines between the brows commonly called the 11’s. Botox is used to relax muscles for cosmetic purposes but it also has many medical applications and is used to treat a number of conditions including chronic migraines, excessive sweating and muscle spasticity, to mention a few.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
The cost of Botox is determined by the number of facial areas being treated and the amount of needed to achieve the desired wrinkle-relaxing result. During your consultation, your provider will discuss your facial rejuvenation goals to best determine the area of treatment and associated cost.

- Dermal Fillers - Dermal Fillers are injectable treatments that restore youthful volume and fullness to the face, plump deeper facial lines and folds and provide contour and definition to the face.

What Is Dysport?
Dysport ® Wrinkle Treatment is an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer, offering a non-surgical option for the correction of expression-related wrinkles, or dynamic wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes.
With every laugh, squint or frown, the muscles of the face contract causing the overlying skin to crease. Over time and as the elasticity in skin gradually diminishes with age, these expression creases deepen and become facial lines and wrinkles.
