Botox® FAQs

What are Botox® Uses?

Facial line softening of the upper half of face: forehead furrowing, eye lines (crows feet) and frown lines between the eyes. It can also be used to treat excessive sweating, (hyperhydrosis) of the underarms, hands and feet. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.

How is Botox® Administered?

Using a tiny needle, a very small amount of Botox is injected into locations on the face. Because the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used, the discomfort associated with the injections is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. No sedation or local anesthetic is needed, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office.

Who is suitable for Botox®?

Anyone who is not pregnant, breast feeding, taking antibiotics or suffering from severe neuromuscular disorders. Thousands of women and men have already discovered the benefits of BOTOX®.

Are the injections painful?

Most people only experience a mild momentary discomfort. There is a slight swelling immediately after which settles within a few hours and application of ice helps.

When will I notice a difference?

It begins to work in about 5 days. The greatest effect is seen after about 2-3 weeks.

How long will it last?

3-6 months depending on each individuals response. Repeat treatments have been shown to last longer. Treatment with Botox can typically be repeated indefinitely.
