What To Expect with Botox

Botox treatment involves the injection of botulinum toxin A, which has been proven safe and effective for treating the underlying cause of deep lines and wrinkles- muscle contraction and tension. After applying a topical anesthetic for your comfort, Dr. Brand will use a very fine needle for the Botox injections. Most patients will experience a small pinching sensation.

There is no required downtime after your treatment and you may return to your normal daily routine after your visit. Mild redness or swelling may be noticeable for the first 24-48 hours.
