Targeted injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic into facial tissue temporarily interrupt nerve signals to nearby muscles. By reducing muscle activity, BOTOX® Cosmetic can relieve fine lines and deep-set wrinkles on areas of the face such as:

Enhance the results that you experience from Facial Aesthetics treatment therapies by following a few simple instructions provided by your clinician. As a reminder, here are guidelines specific to each therapy. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding your post-treatment regimen.
Before Your BOTOX®/Dysport Treatment
BOTOX®/Dysport Post-Treatment Instructions
You may have bruises in the areas treated with BOTOX®/Dysport. This is normal. It will take up to two weeks for you to experience the full effect of the BOTOX® treatment. Remain patient. It takes time for the muscles to lose strength and the lines to fade following BOTOX®/Dysport treatments. Movement of lines diminished is OK. The objective of the BOTOX®/Dysport treatment is to improve the appearance of the lines, not necessarily paralyze the muscle. If we can achieve the improvement of the lines without complete paralysis in the area then you benefit from continued use of subtle facial expression in that area of your face.
It is best to try to exercise your treated muscles for 1-2 hours after treatment (e.g. practice frowning, raising your eyebrows, or squinting). This helps to work BOTOX®/Dysport Cosmetic into your muscles. Although thought to help, it will NOT impact your treatment negatively if you forget to do this.
Do NOT rub or massage the treated areas for 4 hours after your treatment. Do NOT practice Yoga or any type of strenuous exercise for 4 hours after treatment. Also, avoid facials or saunas for 4 hours after your treatment. This will minimize the risk of raising your blood pressure and therefore minimize the risk of temporary bruising. Feel free to shower and go about most other regular daily activities.
Do NOT lie down for 4 hours after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas (from your pillow) and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
Be assured that any tiny bumps or marks will go away within a few hours. If you need to apply make-up within 4 hours after your treatment, only use a GENTLE touch to avoid rubbing the treated area.
Results of your treatment may take up to 14 days to take full effect. Please wait until the 14 days has passed before assessing if you are pleased with the result.
Because BOTOX®/Dysport Cosmetic requires a special technique in order to customize the injections to your individual muscular structure, it is important that your muscle activity recover, BUT that your skin is not creasing to the point from where you started.
BOTOX®/Dysport Cosmetic is a temporary procedure and at first, you may find that your treatment results will last approximately 3 or 4 months. If you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended by your doctor, the duration of each treatment result may last longer than 4 months.
Initially our clinic sees patients between the 3-month (12 week) and 4 month (16 week) time period. We are able to create the best clinical results for you during this period. If you allow BOTOX®/Dysport Cosmetic to wear off completely, it is difficult for the doctor to be able to see how your individual muscles reacted and therefore optimal results for your face can be more difficult to achieve.
We offer the special service of contacting you as a reminder prior to your booked appointment. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a very simple, in-office procedure in which our skilled doctors and dermatologists inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into specific areas of your face. The pain is barely noticeable, if at all, and there are minimal side effects which typically will include the following:
Most side effects are minimal and will go away within hours to 1-2 days, but the results of BOTOX® Cosmetic will be quickly noticed and are long-lasting, so they clearly outweigh the possible side effects.
