Numbing cream will be applied to the target areas of your face. A tiny amount of Botox is injected using a thin needle into the muscle, which blocks the nerve impulses that cause muscular contractions. This gives you a more relaxed and natural appearance.
This procedure should take no more than 10-15 minutes. It is often viewed as a lunchtime procedure as it has no downtime and patients can immediately return to work after.
Botox is very safe. Prior to being used for aesthetic treatments, It has been FDA approved to treat other muscular conditions like cerebral palsy. There might be some slight swelling or itching at the target site, but this is temporary and will quickly disappear.
Your doctor will check your medical history prior to the treatment so as to ensure that there won’t be any major contraindications before administering the treatment.
