Frequently Asked Questions
IS BOTOX® COSMETIC ONLY FOR WOMEN?
HOW MUCH TIME DOES TREATMENT TAKE? WILL IT HURT?
The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
Q HOW MANY INJECTIONS WILL I RECEIVE?
Treatment is customized to your goals and needs. At Skinique Med Spa we will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address.
Q IS THERE A “GENERIC”?
There is no such thing as a "generic" form. Be wary of discount products or "cheap" BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Q IS BOTOX PAINFUL?
The procedure is not considered painful. Most patients report a brief period of discomfort during the injection, which does not
persist once the procedure is complete.
Q HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
While the experience of each patient may differ, it usually takes 3 - 5 days to see the effects of Botox. For some, it may take up
to 2 weeks to realize the final effects.
Q HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
The results typically last between 3 - 5 months from the date of your injection. Over time the body metabolizes the Botox, leading
to the slow return of muscle
movement in the treatment area. Patients can choose to
maintain their results for longer periods
by undergoing periodic maintenance treatments every 3 - 4 months.
