Are You a Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
As one of the most popular injectable treatments in the world, BOTOX® Cosmetic is appropriate for a wide range of patients. In general, if you are over the age of 18 and dissatisfied with early signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, across the forehead, or between the brows, you may be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not recommended for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

How is BOTOX® Cosmetic Administered?
When you arrive for your treatment, we will thoroughly cleanse your skin. The injection process causes minimal discomfort. We can, however, apply a numbing cream to the treatment sites to ensure a comfortable experience. Dr. O’Dell will then begin injecting the BOTOX® Cosmetic solution into the target areas. Depending on your goals, you may need several injections. The entire process takes less than a half hour, after which you can resume any non-strenuous activities you wish.
You should avoid strenuous activity for the first 24 hours and try to keep your head elevated. While you may see immediate improvements, it typically takes up to 48 hours to see your final results. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a temporary treatment that lasts an average of four months. To maintain your results, you will need to return for periodic re-treatments.
