BOTOX®

Who is a candidate for BOTOX®?
Adults 18 years and older are candidates for treatment. There is no right age to start treatment, but BOTOX® is being recognized as a preventative measurement, and if you start seeing faint lines on your face, then you should consider this treatment to avoid those lines getting deeper and more prominent.

Who should not get BOTOX®?
Patients who are pregnant or breast feeding, suffer from certain neurological diseases, or who are allergic to the ingredients in BOTOX® are advised against the treatment.

How long is the BOTOX® treatment?
If you are a new patient at Forever Young Medical Spa, expect to be here at least 45 minutes. We will review your medical history, go over the procedure, expectations, take before and after pictures and answer any questions you may have. Follow-up procedures should take approximately 15 minutes and are scheduled two weeks following the treatment.

Is there any downtime after my BOTOX treatment?
Although there is no real downtime, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activity 24 hours following the injection.

What are some of the possible side effects of BOTOX®?
Potential side effects include: mild swelling, redness, bruising and tenderness at or around the injection site.

Is BOTOX® safe?
BOTOX® is an FDA approved product. Botox protein is modified extensively in the lab to a purified form and its concentration is diluted, making it very safe.

How long before I see results from BOTOX®?
