When will I see the results?
You should begin to see the results 3-7 days after injection, although some areas may take effect earlier than others.
How long will my treatment last?
Botox® works to temporarily reduce facial wrinkles for 3-6 months, at which point additional injections are usually warranted to maintain the results.
Are there are any side effects?
As with any injection, there is a risk for some minor swelling and bruising, which usually subsides after a few days. We’ll work with you to minimize your risk of side effects, including applying ice to diminish swelling. We also recommend the use of Arnica, a natural anti-bruising supplement, as well as avoidance of alcohol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, fish oil, Vitamin E, and Ginkgo Biloba supplements up to a week before and after your session to reduce the possibility of bruising. We use AccuVein®, a superb device that helps us see every tiny vessel to avoid bruising.
Does Botox® hurt?
Botox® is a quick 10-20-minute procedure that requires no incision, using super-fine needles to administer the medication. It’s usually well-tolerated and comes with no downtime. You can return to normal activity following Botox®.
Will I look like I’ve had work done?
No one should be able to tell you’ve had Botox®. The treatment simply relaxes the muscles underlying your wrinkles. When administered properly by the trained, licensed physicians at NOVO Medical Aesthetics who are well-versed in facial anatomy, this injectable reveals the most flattering, natural-looking benefits.
