Below, we cover some of what you can expect during your appointment, but please feel free to reach out to us if you have any more questions!

Botox can eliminate fine lines

What does it feel like?

One of your biggest concerns regarding Botox may be about pain. While the thought of getting needles injected into your face can be intimidating, know that the process is hardly painful at all. While you might feel slight discomfort, the process goes so quickly, you will hardly notice.

How long does it last?

Wouldn’t it be nice if after one Botox treatment, you had beautiful skin for the rest of your life? Unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Expect your Botox results to last anywhere from 4 to 6 months before your skin goes back to how it was before.

Are there any side effects?

If you are worried about side effects, don’t be! After Botox, most people don’t experience side effects at all. Although you could experience some swelling or redness, this will probably only occur if you don’t follow the aftercare instructions we give you.

How should you prepare?

Before your Botox appointment, don’t take any medications or supplements that can result in blood thinning. These include things like aspirin, fish oil, vitamin E and ibuprofen.
