BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport® and Xeomin® are considered “lunchtime” procedures, meaning you can come in for only a few minutes and immediately return to your routine. We will inject the protein with a fine needle into specific muscles in your face, neck or underarms. There is very little discomfort and usually no anesthesia is necessary.
Following your treatment, you may see mild bruising and you will be asked not to touch the affected area for the rest of the day. Your results should begin to show over the next few days as the protein settles in. These treatments can be safely repeated as frequently as needed to maintain your results.
Botulinum treatment has minimal recovery time. Avoiding aspirin and other blood-thinning medications can help prevent bruising. You can return to work immediately after your treatment, but strenuous activities should be avoided for 24 hours.
Once your results begin to show, you should notice a marked improvement in the fine lines and wrinkles in your face. Your results can last up to 4 to 6 months and allow you to enjoy a younger, more relaxed appearance without the need for cosmetic surgery.
