BOTOX® Cosmetic Process
The treatment process when you receive BOTOX® Cosmetic injections from Bella MD is simple. Our doctor will consult with you to determine whether you're a candidate for treatment, and then ask you about the results you're hoping to achieve.
The doctor may then ask you to move certain muscles in your brow area since the location, size, and use of the muscles that create the furrow between your brows can vary for different people. You'll have a chance to ask any questions you may have and to talk about your goals before our doctor finalizes a customized treatment plan for you.
The treatment requires no anesthesia, though we may numb your brow with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. Our doctor will administer a few injections directly into the muscles in your brow that cause your frown lines. Any discomfort you may experience will be minimal and brief, and the whole treatment will only take about 10 minutes.
Our doctor will give you aftercare instructions, and you may experience side effects such as localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness or bleeding or bruising. But typically, you'll be ready to get on with your day, and within days you will see improvements in your frown lines that will last for up to four months.
