Any discomfort felt during the treatment is minimal and brief. We take precautions to ensure your comfort by applying a topical anesthetic to numb the injection site and use very small, thin needles to administer the injections. Most patients are in and out in less than 20 minutes with no downtime. We also offer other pain management solutions for those feeling anxiety about his or her impending treatment.
If you are allergic to Botox or the topical anesthetic, you should avoid Botox. Additionally, Botox should be avoided by those who are susceptible to scarring, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have bleeding disorders, have weakened facial muscles or damaged nerves, or currently have inflamed skin due to a rash, active acne, hives, cold sore, or another reason.
