The BOTOX® Procedure
During your BOTOX® procedure, the treatment area will be cleansed, and a small, fine needle will be used to carefully inject the BOTOX®. Injections are usually tolerable, though a topical anesthetic can be applied before injections if requested. A number of injections may be needed to achieve the desired result.
What to Expect After BOTOX®
Following BOTOX® injections, minimal swelling, redness, and bleeding may occur. It takes several days for BOTOX® to reach full effect, and results can last for 3-6 months. There is little to no downtime required after BOTOX® injections, though strenuous exercise should be avoided for the remainder of the day.
