If would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact us today. We are always happy to answer questions, and can help you schedule a consultation to discuss your options.
How long do results last?
Results can vary from person to person, but on average BOTOX® Injections can provide facial rejuvenation results that last three to four months. After the effects begin to fade, follow-up treatment can maintain results. In fact, some patients have noticed results tend to last longer after each repeat visit.
When will I see results?
Optimal results from facial rejuvenation with BOTOX® Cosmetic should be seen within approximately seven days after treatment.
What is the treatment like?
Treatment is typically fairly brief – approximately ten minutes, depending on the number of treatment areas. BOTOX® Cosmetic, which is a prescription medication (onabotulinumtoxinA) is carefully injected using a fine needle. According to your treatment plan, injections will be made in desired areas to temporarily prevent underlying facial muscles in the target areas from contracting (it is this muscle contraction that creates the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines).
