Now you can smile with confidence and feel amazing as your wrinkles, scowl lines and crow’s feet disappear immediately; effortlessly removing the visible signs of aging with no downtime, no surgery and no fuss.
You'll need to first meet with the doctor, nurse prescriber, pharmacist prescriber or dentist who will prescribe the medicine. This should always be a face-to-face meeting.
They'll want to fully understand your medical history and reasons for wanting the treatment before they go ahead. You won't see any difference straight away: it takes about three to five days before the injections take effect, and up to two weeks for the full effect to be seen. As with other neurotoxins, BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered using a tiny needle that leaves no trace of the injection. Most patients feel no pain at all! You can resume normal activities immediately after. Results appear within 7 days and last 3-4 months on average. Bruising can occur in patients that take aspirin, NSAIDS, fish oil or consume alcohol within 24 hours prior to the procedure. This long term of dermatologic experience, combined with excellent results has made Kings Medical Center a trustworthy choice for patients looking for non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
