Botox is an injectable treatment that relaxes facial muscles. It smooths lines and wrinkles, including around the eyes and forehead, as well as those near the mouth.
- Because Botox is an injection, it’s minimally invasive. It’s also fast – the treatment takes about 15 minutes.
- There’s no recovery time necessary after a Botox treatment, so you can resume your normal activities quickly.
- Depending on the number of treatments, Botox can be a more cost-effective option than surgery.
- The effects can last three months or more.
Every face is different, and every patient’s goals are different, too. Before choosing any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to discuss what you want to achieve, and what is possible with today’s treatments.
Recovery time varies for each patient and for each type of filler injected. You can resume most activities right away, but it is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Be sure to discuss your specific recovery plan with your physician prior to scheduling your injections.
