HOW IT WORKS
You will be given ice to place over the areas to be treated and your skin is cleaned off with an alcohol preparation pad. Then very small injections are made to deposit the Botox® or Dysport. Wrinkle relaxers are best known for their use in upper facial wrinkles like forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and 11 lines. But there are other great uses for neuromodulators as well.

The whole process takes only minutes. Afterwards, you will be ready to go on with your day!
There is no real “down-time” with this type of treatment. You can perform your normal activities the same day. It will take about 72 hours to start working and you will notice your face looking smoother. You will feel a heaviness as your muscles become more sluggish in forming the wrinkles you used to have. People around you will not know what you had done, but they will notice that your skin is smoother and more brilliant appearing!
Remember that everyone is different. Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this surgery. The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after surgery.
With every treatment there are risks involved including bleeding and infection – but these risks are very rare with Botox injections:
Sometimes on side of your face has muscles that are stronger than the other and this can lead to one area being less smooth. If this happens, you will need an extra injection of botox to even it out. It is recommended to wait the full 2 weeks until the botox has completely set in.
Botox can move into surrounding muscles in your face. If it affects the eyelid muscle, your eyelid may slightly droop temporarily. This rare side-effect does not cause a medical problem and can be reversed with eye drops.
