Is BOTOX® Painful?

BOTOX® is administered by injection, but don’t worry; most patients find the injection process quite tolerable. The needle is very thin and the injections take just a couple of minutes. We’ll do all we can to create a comfortable environment for you throughout the injection process.

How Long Until I See Results?

BOTOX® results aren’t immediately visible. Most patients notice the changes starting a couple of days after treatment. Results can last for up to 4 to 5 months. We’ll create a treatment schedule with you so you can maintain your results and always look your best.

BOTOX® works by relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles. As the muscles relax, the wrinkles fade away. This treatment is ideal for lines between the brows, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating.

How Do I Choose an Injector?

If you want a successful BOTOX® treatment, choose your injector carefully. A skilled injector has a deep understanding of facial anatomy and knows where to place injections for maximum results. Here at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg all of our injectors are highly skilled and known for providing natural looking results.

Is BOTOX® Safe?

Last year 6.7 million cosmetic BOTOX® treatments were performed in the U.S., more than any other minimally invasive cosmetic treatment. BOTOX® has been FDA approved for cosmetic use since 2002. This treatment is tried and tested and one of the safest cosmetic treatments available.

What’s BOTOX® Recovery Like?

Everyone has time for BOTOX®. Treatment requires no downtime. You can come in and get injected and head right back to your regular activities. Many patients come see us on a short break from work. You may have a bit of redness or swelling, but this typically fades quickly and can be covered with makeup. BOTOX® also pairs well with other cosmetic treatments.
