Frequently Asked Questions
​​​Frequently Asked Questions About Botox​®
​​When can I see results from my Botox® treatment and how long will they last?​​

Our clients typically start to see the results within one to two weeks of receiving the treatment. Results can last up to 4 months.

Does Botox® prevent wrinkles?

Yes, Botox® can be used to prevent wrinkles.

Will I bruise after my Botox® treatment?

You can reduce risks of bruising and swelling if Tylenol or Ibuprofen is stopped 72 hours prior to treatment. Bruising may vary and can last 3-10 days.

I do not want a "frozen face" can I get a more natural look?

During your DermAssessment, Danielle Bartelt, RN, will discuss your treatment options to reach your goals. It is our goal to provide a natural looking, youthful result.

Can I combine Botox® with other treatments?

Danielle Bartelt, RN, will evaluate your entire facial anatomy, your aging features and all the possibilities for facial skin improvement. Combination treatments with Botox® are quite common including dermal fillers, skin peels, microdermabrasion and skin care products to enhance your treatment results. Some patients feel that using Botox® in combination with their dermal filler in some treatment areas, allows for the longest-lasting and best results. Why? Without Botox®, the dynamic movement of the muscle in the dermal filler treatment area could cause the filler product to break down more quickly.

What are the risks of Botox®?

The most common side effect from a Botox​® treatment is actually from the needle itself. As with all injections, there is a risk of bruising and redness. Other side effects include temporary headache, and some soreness or tenderness at the injection site. More severe side effects can include a rash or allergic reaction, and possibly some drooping of facial muscles near treated areas, usually as a result of “spreading”. For a full list of potential side effects, you should have a consultation and review an informed consent form.
