If you have been considering BOTOX® treatment for a while, but you are concerned about what to expect after the treatment session, allow us to ease your concerns. At Atomic Dermatology, we believe in transparency. Today, we are talking about what to expect after BOTOX®.
Will There Be Discomfort?
You will experience no real discomfort after your BOTOX® treatment. Our experienced professionals know exactly how and where to inject the solution so you experience as little discomfort as possible both during and after the treatment session.
Is There Any Downtime?
BOTOX® treatment requires no set downtime. You can go straight back to work after receiving the treatment. However, we do advise you to refrain from extremely vigorous exercise for a set amount of time after your treatment. This is to ensure that the solution does not shift out of its carefully selected position.
When Will I See Results?
It can take days to start seeing the effects of BOTOX® for wrinkle and line reduction. However, in the days after your first treatment, you should expect to see the full effects of the treatment.
How Long Do the Results Last?
When using BOTOX® treatment to address fine lines and wrinkles, results last for multiple months. After a certain amount of time, you may notice your facial muscles become more active. However, you can remain confident that your appearance will remain improved with follow-up injections.
BOTOX® Treatment: What Else to Expect
If you are considering this treatment, you are probably wondering what to expect before and during the treatment. In the spirit of transparency, we are going to address this, too.
What Actually Happens?
There is a common misconception that BOTOX® involves a single giant injection. This could not be farther from the truth. How many injections you will need depends on the severity of your case and the goals you would like to achieve. However, injections are carefully placed using specialized techniques, and the treatment itself is only minimally-invasive.
How Does It Work?
People often think that BOTOX® works the same way as a filler made up of hyaluronic acid. In fact, BOTOX® acts as a muscle relaxant. It does not eliminate fine lines and wrinkles by filling them with gel. It relaxes the muscles responsible for creating certain types of creases and folds.
