Prior to Botox® treatment, we evaluate your anatomy and movement with you relaxed and then making facial expressions, including smiling. We will determine the proper location and dose for the Botox® injections. We offer complimentary consultations to answer all of your questions and determine the best treatment for you.
Botox® injections may feel like a tiny pinch, but are not generally considered painful.
The injections take about 1 minute to perform.
As with other Botox® treatments, there is no significant recovery time after treatment. You may have a tiny red bump, like a mosquito bite. This generally goes away within minutes. Rarely, a small bruise may occur.
We recommend not lying down, exercising or touching the treated area for 4 hours after Botox® injections.
As with other Botox® injections, results come on gradually and usually are apparent in 3-4 days with maximum effect in 7-14 days. Dysport® tends to take effect quicker with visible results in 1-3 days and full effect within 7 days.
Botox® and Dysport® both last on average 3-4 months, so to maintain results, you will need to come in for touch-ups a few times a year.
Rarely, Botox® or Dysport® injections can produce an overtreatment or an uneven appearance. It is important to choose an injector carefully to limit the risks of this.
