Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and does not require anesthesia. Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle cannot contract which makes the wrinkles relax and soften. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect, and it is best to avoid alcohol starting at least one week before the procedure. You should also stop taking aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising. The effects of Botox will last three to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking. We only use the best brands, Allergan and Nuceiva!
