Botox FAQ:

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic is refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum and contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein. It is also case-specific, formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, meaning that one product cannot take the place of another.
  • The safety and efficacy of the treatment have been evaluated by its founding company, Allergan in sponsored clinical trials, as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles published in scientific and medical journals.
  • Botox® is a safe, FDA-approved cosmetic treatment that has been used on more than 11 million people in North America to restore a younger appearance (American Society of Plastic Surgeons).
  • What Happens When It Wears Off? When neuromodulators wear off and you stop receiving treatments, you will simply return to the state you started. You will never look worse! If you started using neuromodulators at a younger age and prevented static lines from forming, your skin will just be that much more relaxed looking than had you let those lines form, even if you stop treatment. The “aging clock” will simply resume as normal
  • The procedure will be carried out in our medical clinic in just a few minutes.
  • A very fine needle will be inserted into the facial muscles. There is very little discomfort during the injection.
  • Topical ice is used prior to injections as a topical anesthetic, even though the discomfort associated with the process is minimal.
  • Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch.
  • There is a minimal recovery period of approximately 48 hours after getting Botox. During this time, you may experience bruising or headaches.
  • Avoid rubbing your face in areas treated with Botox, and do not lie down for the first few hours after the injections. Keep in mind that results from Botox – though significant – usually begin to fade within 4 to 6 months.
  • In your consultation meeting we will request that you return for retreatment periodically
