Q:  Is Botox® safe?
A:  Botox® is very safe. It was approved by the FDA in 2002 and has undergone more clinical studies than any other medication in the world.

Q:  Will I look overdone?
A:  Our goal is to provide beautiful, natural results. We want your friends and co-workers to think you’re getting more sleep or that you went away on vacation, not that you had anything done.

Q:  Will it hurt?
A:  You will feel a slight pinch when the Botox® is injected. We used the smallest needle available (33-gauge) to minimize the pain as much as possible. Most patients describe the discomfort level as “mild.”

Q:  Is there downtime?
A:  You can return to your normal activities right away. Many patients have this procedure done on their lunch breaks.

Q:  How long does Botox® last?
A:  On average, Botox® lasts about 3-4 months. Most patients have about 3 treatments each year.
