- Your appointment begins with a casual consultation with our Nurse Practitioner, Dr. Pam Smith. Your needs and goals will be assessed. Risks, benefits, and expectations will also be discussed.
- Botox administration can be done the day of consultation. The number of injections depends on the areas being treated. Injections feel like a pinch. Most people can resume normal activities following treatment.
- The types of needles used during Botox injections are extraordinarily thin, and cause very little discomfort. With the short amount of time requested and low level of pain this should be an easy procedure for you.
- Written consent will be required before administration.
Botox administration is a minimally invasive procedure. Regular Botox administration can temporarily diminish the appearance of facial lines. Recurrent administration can prevent formation of new lines. Botox administration can help other conditions including prevention of chronic migraines.
Botox is a neurotoxin that prevents normal muscle contraction communication. Interruption of repeated muscle contraction from frowning, squinting, smiling, and raising eyebrows over the years makes frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines temporarily look better. Results can be noticed 24-48 hours after administration. Full results in 30 days.
Results vary from patient to patient but usually results last up to 3-4 months.
