Botox Cosmetics/Frequently Asked Questions

What does Botox® do?

Botox® is a simple, non-surgical procedure that may help to smooth minor imperfections in facial skin, such as frown lines, wrinkle and creases that develop through the normal aging process.

Is that procedure painful?

The doctor will administer several tiny injections to the area being treated.  No anesthesia is needed.  Discomfort is minimal and brief.

Who is a good candidate?

Any male or female over the age of 18 who is concerned about their appearance may be a candidate for Botox® injections.

Will I look worse if I stop having treatments?

No.  Your lines will gradually revert to their pre-treatment appearance.

How long do the results last?

The effects may last up to 4 months.  It is recommended that you have repeat injections every 3-4 months to maintain your result.  Recent studies have shown, if you follow the recommended treatment schedule for 20 months, the interval between treatments  could be extended to 6 months with no difference in results.
