BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in a very dilute form. There is not just one injection, but several small ones to ensure precise delivery to only the muscles we want to treat. No anesthesia is required and the procedure takes less than 30 minutes.
There is no need to take any time off work after treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic. You can return to work and all activities right away. In fact, you are encouraged not to lie down for at least four hours after treatment. Voluntary contraction of treated muscles can increase the uptake of BOTOX® Cosmetic and increase its effectiveness.
The results of BOTOX® Cosmetic may take three or four days to become visible, but they are quite dramatic. A deep wrinkle will vanish, leaving only a faint line. The effects typically last for about 4 months, but retreatments may increase the duration.
