BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure

The doctors at Gordon-Weiss-Schanzlin Vision Institute will apply a topical anesthetic to the skin twenty to thirty minutes before treatment is administered.  A series of tiny injections are placed strategically within the facial muscles to relax their movement, as these are the main cause of skin creases and wrinkles. The temporary relaxation of facial muscles in the target areas will ultimately smooth out the skin, reducing signs of age and stress and giving you a more youthful, refreshed appearance.

The entire BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment typically lasts as little as 15 minutes.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Recovery

In minutes, the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are complete, meaning there is no recovery period necessary and our patients are able to return to their daily routines without interruption. While some redness, bruising and swelling may be present for a few minutes following the BOTOX® injections, ice compresses typically reduce these after-effects.

Because the effects of the injections happen on a cellular level, results will vary from patient to patient; however, results can sometimes be seen as early as 48 hours after the procedure, and can last up to 3-4 months. Occasional touch-up treatments can keep the results going even longer.
