There is no downtime after treatment, and you may have gauze applied to the area to protect the injection site. You should avoid bending over or lying down for a few hours after your procedure. Please avoid direct sunlight for 24 hours and prevent pressure or rubbing on the injection sites. You are welcome to resume physical activities a couple of hours following your procedure, though many patients wait until the following day to exercise.
The needles used to administer BOTOX® Cosmetic, Jeuveau™, Dysport®, and XEOMIN® are very thin, so scarring is not typically associated with injectables.
You desired results and the number of treatments required to achieve your goals can fluctuate. Dr. Thompson can provide pricing information during your consultation for a more accurate cost estimate.
Some patients experience a mild stinging or burning sensation when the formula is injected into the muscles. You may also feel itchy or see slight redness around the injection sites, which should resolve within two or three days.
