Botox® is a toxic substance, but cosmetic professionals can safely use it to temporarily smooth wrinkles on your face and neck. It can make you look younger, and our skilled providers have extensive experience with it. They help you feel confident and comfortable about the procedure.
What you should know about Botox®:
- It can take two to seven days for the full results to appear. A Botox® treatment lasts from three to four months. You will need to repeat the procedure for continued results.
- Botox® has few side effects:
- Minor but more common: slight bruising and redness at the injection spot
- Slightly more serious but rare: headache, nausea and temporary facial drooping
- Very serious and very rare: slurred speech, breathing problems and trouble swallowing, which occur when the toxin spreads beyond the treatment area
