Botox ® FAQs
BOTOX® is a simple, non-surgical, therapeutic, muscle relaxing injectable agent approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that smoothes wrinkles for a healthy, youthful appearance.
What are the benefits of BOTOX?
- Skin remains unwrinkled and smooth
- Correct visible signs of stress and aging
- Relaxed and youthful appearance
- No down time
- Can be combined with other procedures to maximize results
How does BOTOX® work? What areas can be treated?
Over time, smiles or frowns cause "expression lines" around your eyes or between your brows. BOTOX® is injected and blocks the nerve impulses of facial muscles that enable expressions. This allows muscles to relax and wrinkles to fade. You can frown or smile without creases or wrinkles.
How long do the results Last?
Benefits of a BOTOX® treatment typically start fading in about four months. Results are cumulative with repeated treatments, extending the effectiveness of this procedure approximately six to eight months.
How long before I start to see results?
The effect of BOTOX® is typically visible within three days. In about ten to fourteen days the muscle completely relaxes, the skin softens and reveals a relaxed and youthful appearance.
What sensations will I experience during a session? Does it hurt?
Discomfort is minimal and brief. Clients have reported a "pin prick" feeling similar to the sensation of a bug bite. At your request, the Physician will use some ice to minimize any discomfort.
BOTOX® is safe and is the only treatment of its kind approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). BOTOX® only effects muscles at the treatment site and does not extend to other areas of the body.
Over a million people have experienced BOTOX®. Rare cases of side effects are usually mild, temporary and include: headache, flu symptoms, nausea, and light bruising at the injection sight or a slight, impermanent drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of expression.
What should I expect after a treatment?
You may resume regular activities immediately following a treatment, even though there may be temporary bruising or redness at the injection site.
Is there anything I should NOT do after treatment?
You should not lie down for at least four hours after your treatment. This gives the BOTOX® a chance to completely saturate the muscle tissue.
Are there any reasons I shouldn't have BOTOX®?
Yes, BOTOX® is not recommended for clients who are:
- Pregnant or nursing
- Taking any other medications or supplements
- Allergic to Botulinum Toxin Type A
- Prone to a history of botulism poisoning

- Laser resurfacing
- Photo rejuvenation
- Dermal fillers
- Skin Tightening
- Collagen Induction Therapy
