Frequently asked questions

How long does the treatment take?

What is Botox Cosmetic?


BOTOX® Cosmetic is prescription medicine a medical professional injects into muscles to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.




What should I tell my Doctor before treatment?


Do not use BOTOX® Cosmetic if you are: allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic such as botulinum toxin type A and human serum albumin; had an allergic reaction to another botulinum toxin product such as Myobloc® (rimabotulinumtoxinB), Dysport® (abobotulinumtoxinA), or Xeomin® (incobotulinumtoxinA); or have a skin infection at the planned injection site.




What should I tell my Doctor about the medicines and vitamins I take?


Using BOTOX® Cosmetic with certain medicines may cause serious side effects. Do not start any new medicines until you have told your doctor that you have received BOTOX® Cosmetic in the past. Tell your doctor if you have received an injection with another botulinum toxin product in the last 4 months, such as Myobloc®, Dysport®, or Xeomin®. Be sure your doctor knows which product you received. Tell your doctor about all prescription and over-the-counter medicines and supplements you take including: vitamins and herbal products; recent antibiotic injections; anticholinergics; muscle relaxants; allergy or cold medicine; sleep medicine; aspirin-like products; and blood thinners. Ask your doctor if you are not sure whether your medicine is listed above.




How do I prepare for a Botox/Dysport treatment?


One week prior to your treatment, avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Motrin, Aleve or Ibuprofen), Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E or fish oil supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site. If you require a pain remedy during this time period, it is ok to take Tylenol. Adding leafy greens to your diet will boost your Vitamin K and help to reduce the possibility of bruising and swelling. Avoid eating apples or large quantities of garlic before your appointment. A topical numbing cream may be applied to help with any discomfort. This does require a longer appointment time of an additional 20 minutes for optimal results. Bruising is possible and therefore, we recommend that you schedule any social plans accordingly for 7-10 days following your injection. While initial effects of the injection are visible in as soon as 3-5 days, you should expect your final results to be achieved 2-3 weeks after an injection.




What can I do after my Botox/Dysport treatment?


Do NOT have any type of facial massage or place your face in a facial cradle for a massage for 24 hours following your injection. Do NOT have any facial laser or electrical treatments for two weeks following your Botox/Dysport/Xeomin injection. You may resume your skin care program the same day as your Botox/Dysport/Xeomin treatment Makeup is also ok to wear the day of your injections. Following your injection, avoid strenous activity/excessive sweating for 24 hours.
Try to sleep on your back the first night following Botox/Dysport treatment.
