A small amount of BOTOX® (typically 1-2 cc’s) is injected into the area of wrinkle. It acts by blocking impulses at nerve ending to corresponding facial muscles causing them to relax. An ice pack is then immediately applied upon completion of the BOTOX® treatment. The effects of BOTOX® treatments can last three to six months after which the procedure is repeated.
Normal activity is resumed immediately following the procedure. It is recommended that patients follow postoperative instructions to optimize outcomes. In the first 24 hours patients should avoid vigorous massaging or rubbing the injected area. Furthermore, patients should avoid intense physical exercise, applying cosmetics, or laying down flat for a minimum of 4 hours following the injections.
