What Do I Need to Do Before Having Botox®?

Schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons to find out if Botox® is the best anti-aging option for you.

What Should I Expect During My Botox® Treatment?

Botox® is administered using a very fine needle. Most patients tolerate the injections, but we can apply a topical numbing agent if needed. Multiple injections are made along the muscles in the forehead and around the eyes.

You may notice pinpoint bleeding, bruising and tenderness around the injection sites. These symptoms may last 24 to 48 hours.
