How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?
The effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic could last from three to six months. You might notice that your lines and wrinkles are a little less apparent over time even after your BOTOX® Cosmetic starts wearing off.
Will my face look overdone or unnatural?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. Dr. Luz Hernandez has extensive training and knowledge on the muscles of mastication and facial expression. You will look like yourself, only with less noticeable lines/wrinkles.
How long will it take to see the results from BOTOX® Cosmetic?
You’ll notice the full effects of your Botox injections within three to seven days. Some patients swear their injections work immediately, but it’s most likely post-injection swelling - BOTOX® Cosmetic needs a few days to start working!
Do I need to be over 40 to start using BOTOX® Cosmetic?
It is not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you. It is the severity of your lines/wrinkles. Everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors like cellular changes, reduction of collagen, genetic factors, damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
How many injections will I receive?
