The BOTOX Procedure

The BOTOX® Procedure

What Happens at Your BOTOX® Appointment?

BOTOX® procedure description - Getting your BOTOX® injections

You will be instructed to avoid alcohol for at least one week prior to your BOTOX® treatment. Anti-inflammatory medication like aspirin or ibuprofen should be avoided two weeks before your BOTOX® treatment. This is to reduce bruising.

The BOTOX® procedure takes only a few minutes. No anesthesia is used, nor is any required. Generally, people feel minor discomfort at most.

During the procedure, BOTOX® will be injected into specific muscles (based on your desired results) using a narrow gauge needle.

You should not rub or massage the treated area for at least twelve hours after your BOTOX® injections. You will also be instructed not to lie down for three to four hours after your BOTOX® treatment. This is to keep the toxin from moving to an area other than where it is supposed to be.
