COMMON BOTOX Q&A
What is Botox® and how is it administered?
Botox® is safe and approved for reduction of wrinkles. It is a drug that is carefully injected under the skin and into the muscle. It allows for temporary relaxation to the underlying muscle. This prevents full muscle contraction and prevents the skin from wrinkling. Dr. Ali in conjunction with your preferences will determine which muscles require treatment.
Does the treatment hurt?
Discomfort levels range from patient to patient however, minor discomfort levels have been reported.
When does Botox® start to work?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours of the procedure.
How long does Botox® last?
Results can last up to 4 months with a gradual decline in its effects at around 3 months. With this timeline in mind, we will work on establishing a follow-up procedure after your initial visit, at your convenience.
