Botox® Cosmetic Injections
Botox® Cosmetic shots (injections) can soften wrinkles on the face.
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Do not drink alcohol for 1 week before getting the shots.
Ask your doctor about changing or stopping your medicines.
Your doctor will use a thin needle to put the Botox® into your skin or muscles. This takes about 15 minutes.
AFTER THE PROCEDURE
It may take 5 to 14 days before your wrinkles start to soften.
If the first shots did not work, you may need more shots.
Wrinkles usually go away for 4 to 6 months. You can get more shots every 4 to 6 months.
