BOTOX® is a trademark name for botulism toxin type A, which can be used by injection for medical and cosmetic purposes. BOTOX® may be injected in face and neck muscles to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It may also be injected into the skin to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Consult a licensed medical professional before undergoing any BOTOX® procedure.
A BOTOX® treatment lasts up to three months. For people with a high metabolism, a BOTOX® might last for only two months. After BOTOX® is injected, it starts working immediately, with clients noticing a difference within 7 to 14 days. We recommend that patients follow up with their injector two weeks after the first injection for touch ups. A touch up consists of small amounts of BOTOX® injected into areas that might not be fully treated during the original injection.
BOTOX® is very safe. It is important for patients to follow the instructions of their injector after being injected. It’s important to sit upright for at least four hours and not to rub the injected area. BOTOX® is affordable, and it is well worth the price to keep your skin looking young and wrinkle free.
BOTOX® injection treatment is pain-free. The patient might feel a slight needle prick during injection, but that is mild. We also offer patients a numbing cream prior to their BOTOX® injection to reduce the sensation of pain.
