Here’s what you might expect at the doctor’s office from the moment you arrive until your procedure is done. (Please note that although this experience is typical, the routine at your doctor’s office may be different.)

Before the Treatment

  • Consult with us to determine whether you are a candidate for treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic
  • We will ask you about your goals to determine where to administer BOTOX® Cosmetic. To do this, we may examine your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create furrow between your brows can vary among individuals
  • Ask us any questions you may have about your expectations for treatment
  • Discuss treatment goals and finalize a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs

The Treatment

How DOES Botox® Treatment Work?

How DOES Botox® Treatment Work?

The administration of BOTOX® Cosmetic involves:

  • No anesthesia is required. However, we may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
  • We will administer a few tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into the muscles that cause those moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows.
  • Approximately 10 minutes for the entire treatment.

After the Treatment

  • No downtime is needed – you’re ready to get on with your day!
  • We will give you specific aftercare instructions.
  • Side effects associated with the injection include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising.
