FAQs: Botox in Mill Valley, CA
When will I see results?
Botox takes 4 to 7 days to reveal optimal benefits.
Will I look like I’ve had work done?
No one should be able to tell you’ve had Botox. This treatment simply relaxes the muscle activity underlying your wrinkles—it doesn’t alter the surface of your skin. When administered properly by a trained and licensed injector, who is well-versed in facial anatomy and expertly trained to administer Botox, this injectable reveals the most flattering and natural-looking benefits.
Are there any side effects?
With any injection, there is risk of some swelling at the injection sight, but this reaction usually subsides quickly after treatment. Other possible side effects include bruising and pinpoint bleeding, which also resolve on their own. We will work with you to minimize your risk of side effects, including applying ice after treatment to curb swelling. We also recommend Arnica Montana, a natural anti-bruising supplement, and avoiding alcohol and NSAIDS like aspirin up to a week before and after your session to reduce your risk of bruising.
Does Botox hurt?
Botox injections are surprisingly quick and easy. These well-tolerated injections use a tiny needle, which is carefully inserted into the skin, targeting specific areas of concern. You may feel a slight pinch as you are being injected, but it’s such an efficient and gentle procedure, you will be surprised by how comfortable you actually feel.
How long will my treatment last?
Botox in Marin County can smooth lines and wrinkles around the forehead and eyes for up to 4 months per treatment.
