Botox FAQs

Does Botox hurt? I’m afraid of needles.

Botox is not a painful treatment. The needles used for Botox injections are actually smaller than the needles used for insulin injections! If you are concerned about discomfort, ice or topical numbing creams can be applied prior to the treatment.

How long do Botox injections take?

The injections are typically done in 5-10 minutes.  (It takes more time to prep and document then the treatment itself!)

How does Botox work?

Botox works by temporarily reducing the muscle activity in the targeted areas, therefore reducing those wrinkles such as crows feet, 11’s, and forehead lines. 

If I stop using Botox, will my wrinkles get worse then before they started? 

No, Botox will not make your wrinkles worse if you stop.  If one does not continue with their treatments, they will eventually get back to their baseline prior to their treatment and continue to develop wrinkles as they normally would.  

What will I look & feel like immediately after my Botox treatment? 

Botox is often referred to as a “lunchtime treatment” because you can return to your daily routine immediately after the treatment. 

When will I see results? 

Botox will start working 2-3 days after the treatment with a gradual increase to the final result, which is achieved around 10-14 post-treatment. 

How long will Botox results last? 

Botox results can last up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines. 

Will I look “fake” after treatment? 

Botox treatments are customized to your own desired results.  At Fresh Medical Aesthetics, we take a conservative “less is more” approach to treatment, especially in clients who are new to neurotoxins because we can always add more if needed.  The majority of clients report that people will often compliment them on how good their skin looks after a treatment or that they look well-rested or fresh, without realizing that it is thanks to a Botox treatment!
