BOTOX Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) targets one of the underlying causes of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions.  BOTOX temporarily reduces muscle activity, which visibly smooth’s out wrinkles and lines. Results are noticeable within five to seven days and last up to 3-4 months.  Continued treatment may reduce the onset of wrinkles prior to them becoming moderate or severe.

Does the treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX feels like a small pinch but ice may be used to the treatment area prior to alleviate any discomfort.

Are there any side effects?

Besides looking amazing, you may experience tenderness at the injections site, slight swelling, and possible bruising.  Possible other side effects can be discussed at your consultation with your provider.
