Does it make any difference who administers BOTOX?
Yes. In order to gain optimal results from your BOTOX treatment, it is important to make sure a trained dermatologist or plastic surgeon with extensive experience performs the procedure. At Associated Dermatologists, you will always have this level of expertise taking care of you.

Does it hurt to have a treatment?
Our physicians use very small syringes for treatments and are very experienced at this procedure. This allows for quick, precise treatment (5 – 10 minutes total) with minimal discomfort.

Typically, patients say a treatment feels comparable to a mosquito sting.

Will it make me expressionless?
No, BOTOX that is correctly administered relaxes specific muscles that contribute to specific wrinkles. Many patients we treat for “frown lines” between the eyebrows notice people respond to them better because they no longer have a ”permafrown”, even when they are happy.

How soon will I see results?
You will start noticing a difference in about a week, but many people continue to see improvement for an additional four to six weeks.

How long will BOTOX last?
Most patients request a touch-up every 4 – 7 months. This varies depending on the individual.
