BOTOX® is a substance injected in small quantities into the skin. It is FDA-approved (since 2002) and is one of the most widely used injectables in the world. The
active ingredient in BOTOX® is derived from clostridium botulinum. The smoothing effect usually starts to occur 7-10 days post-injection and delivers fantastic results.
Adult women and men can both get BOTOX® for fine lines. Do not get BOTOX® if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to any ingredients.
BOTOX® works on all skin types.
BOTOX® injections take 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on the areas being injected.
The risks of BOTOX® injections may include slight swelling, bruising, or redness around the injection site – this usually fades quickly. In rare cases, BOTOX® administration may result in anaphylaxis (a severe allergic reaction) which can be life-threatening and requires immediate medical attention. A licensed nurse administers all injections at Hello Laser under the supervision of our Medical Director, a Medical Doctor.
You can expect full results 14 days post injection.
