What to Expect
Photos will be taken prior to your procedure to track your progress. Our experienced providers will discuss your areas of concern and facial anatomy to create a customized treatment plan for your goals.
We will use a small insulin needle to inject onabotulinum (Botox) into the appropriate muscles. Afterward, we will apply Arnica cream to decrease your risk of bruising and help the healing.
You can wash your face and apply makeup within an hour after treatment. Do not lie down for 4 hours after your treatment. Please avoid sleeping on your stomach, getting a face down massage, or bending over for long periods of time. Do not perform strenuous activity for 12 hours after treatment.
Before & After
How long will it take?
In the hands of an experienced injector, Botox should not take more than a few minutes. We will want to look at your facial anatomy and discuss your desired results prior to treatment to give you the best outcome.
Does Botox hurt?
Botox injections are fast and feel like a small sting. There is no pain afterward and most people do not require numbing ahead of time.
When will I start seeing results?
You will start to notice a decrease in wrinkles and muscle movement in 3-7 days, although it may take up to 2 weeks for everything to take full effect. Your results usually last 3-4 months before your muscle movement and wrinkles start coming back. We recommend you rebook your next appointment before you leave so your wrinkles don’t have a chance to come back.
Will there be downtime?
This is usually a no-downtime procedure. Occasionally a bruise may develop that lasts for a few days, so you may want to plan around important events in your life. If a bruise does develop, we can treat it within 1-3 days with our VBeam laser. This helps bruises to fade away more quickly.
