Here are 5 of the most frequently asked questions about Botox treatments that we’ve collected from blogs, forums and comments all over the web. These are real concerns that real women have expressed on the topic of Botox treatment.

1.    How long will the procedure last?

A Botox treatment lasts an average of 20 minutes.

2.    What part of the face does it work best on?

Botox will work best on parts of the face that have dynamic wrinkles. While the topic of dynamic wrinkles is best discussed separately, I will say that they can be found in the following areas of the face: forehead, crow’s feet, between the eyebrows and smile lines.

3.    What happens during the procedure?

A Botox treatment begins with the reconstitution of the drug, followed by the treatment proper where the doctor will use a very fine needle to inject the drug into the body of the muscle.  Yes, you read right, Botox is injected into the muscle and not the skin.

4.    Does is hurt?

Some patients have experienced slight discomfort during injection but they also said that it didn’t last longer than a few seconds.  Because there is little to no pain involved, a Botox treatment usually does not require any anesthesia.

5.    Can I resume my regular activities after treatment?

Yes, you can go back to your regular activities after treatment.  There is no downtime after a procedure but you do have to follow some post treatment measures to prevent side effects from occurring.


These are just a handful of the important issues that we will be talking about in the Guide.  Other topics include how to choose your doctor, questions that you should ask during your consultation and tips on lowering the cost of your Botox treatment.
