Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX

Does the treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic  feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

How long does treatment take?

The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery—it’s often called a “lunchtime procedure.”

What were common side effects seen in clinical studies?

Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies. Other possible side effects include: discomfort or pain at the injection site; headache; and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, and swelling of your eyelids. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
