BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Daxxify Treatment

If you are a good candidate for neuromodulator injections, our team will create a personalized plan during your first visit. They will carefully choose where to inject the product to give you the desired results without making your face look frozen. The injections are delivered with a tiny needle; you can have numbing cream to help with discomfort. The whole procedure usually takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on how much treatment you need.

You can resume your usual activities on the same day of the injection. As was previously discussed, you may experience slight swelling or bruising around the injection sites, but these effects usually go away quickly. We recommend avoiding strenuous activities or massaging the injection areas on treatment day.

How old do you have to be to get BOTOX® injections?

If you're 18 or older, you can get BOTOX® injections. It's usually done for people in their 30s or older, but some people in their mid-20s may consider it if they see expression lines forming on their faces. Whether you're a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic depends on your specific concerns, medical status, and whether it's the right treatment to help you reach your goals.

How many units of BOTOX® Cosmetic will I need?

BOTOX® injections are measured in units, and the number of units you need depends on your aesthetic goals. For frown lines and forehead creases, 8 to 20 units are usually enough. For crow's feet, 10 to 15 units are typically needed. The areas being treated and the severity of your concerns determine how many units you'll need. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are usually outpatient procedures that take less than 30 minutes, regardless of the number of units required to achieve the best results.

Is there a way to make BOTOX® Cosmetic last longer?

BOTOX® Cosmetic usually lasts about three months, but some people see results for longer. You can help prevent fine lines and wrinkles by:

  • Protecting your skin from the sun
  • Using sunscreen
  • Taking care of your skin
  • Drinking water
  • Not smoking

How often should I get BOTOX® injections?

After the first BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment wears off, you can maintain the results with occasional follow-up treatments. The length of time BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts varies for each patient, but typically, follow-up injections every four to six months are recommended. We can give you more information on treatment schedules during your consultation.

How long after BOTOX® injections until I can lie down?

To minimize the risk of the neurotoxin spreading, it's recommended that patients wait four to six hours before lying down after BOTOX® injections. Keeping your head elevated for several hours after the treatment can help. Avoiding lying down can also prevent pressure on the injection sites right after the procedure.
