How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
An active muscle between the brows and on the forehead, can cause moderate to severe lines. Once Botox is injected into the muscles, it blocks nerve impulses which reduce the muscle activity in that specific area.
How Quickly Does It Work?
Each body reacts differently, within a few days you’ll see results from the BOTOX® injections, but the moderate to severe lines will continue to improve for up to 30 days.
How Long Do BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections Last?
Results from your cosmetic injection can last up to four months. Results will vary with each patient depending on their particular body and lifestyle.
Does It Hurt?
The procedure is quick, and mostly pain free. There’s no downtime associated with it, and can be done over a lunch hour. Most of our BOTOX® Cosmetic injection patients come in during their lunch hour and are done within a half an hour.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Side Effects:
Minor side effects like inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness and bruising in the injection area have been reported, but these rarely occur and are temporary.
