Frequently asked questions about BOTOX and fillers

Here are some frequently asked questions about BOTOX and fillers, with the answers.

Why is BOTOX called a “lunchtime procedure?”
The injection takes about ten minutes, and recovery happens almost immediately, so you can have it done over your lunch break. Try to avoid vigorous exercise for the first 24 hours after a BOTOX injection.

How long does the treatment last?
You should see results within one to two days, and they should last for three to six months. It’s safe to get a new injection after six months. Many people find that third or fourth treatments last longer.

Can BOTOX be used on younger patients to prevent or delay the appearance of wrinkles

If I get an offer of BOTOX by email, should I take it?
No. BOTOX needs to be administered by an expert who knows exactly what sort of wrinkles it works on.

Are there people who shouldn’t take BOTOX?
You shouldn’t take it if you’re pregnant, nursing or suffer from a neurological disease.

What are the options if BOTOX isn’t for you?
Wrinkles can also be treated by injectable fillers. One of these fillers is RADIESSE, a natural calcium compound suspended in gel. RADIESSE can be injected into the face or hands and lasts up to two years. Two other filler gels are Restylane and Perlane. They can be used to enhance the lips. There are other treatments as well. Find an experienced facial plastic surgeon to tell you which one is right for you.
