Botox, also known as botulinum toxin type A, is a cosmetic treatment that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles.

During the procedure, the Botox is injected into specific muscles in the face using a small needle. The treatment only takes a few minutes to complete and does not require any anesthesia. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the injections, but it is generally well-tolerated.

Before the procedure

Patients should avoid taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as these can increase the risk of bruising. They should also avoid alcohol and smoking for several days before the procedure, as these can impair healing.

After the procedure

Patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these usually subside within a few days. Patients should avoid touching or rubbing the treated area and should avoid lying down for several hours after the treatment. They should also avoid strenuous exercise and excessive sun exposure for at least 24 hours after the procedure.


The effects of Botox typically last three to six months, after which patients may choose to undergo another treatment. With repeated treatments, the effects of Botox may last longer.
