When administered by a licensed and board-certified dermatologist at Premier Dermatology, botulinum toxin is considered safe for cosmetic use. There are very few side effects, but they may include redness and swelling at the injection site as well as some brief discomfort, but otherwise, there is no downtime. In fact, it is safe to apply makeup and return to everyday activity immediately following your session.
Botulinum toxin treatments are not permanent; the results tend to last anywhere from three to six months depending on the individual. The results are not immediate, either. Most people return for a second appointment in a week to determine whether additional botulinum injections will be required to achieve the desired results. To schedule your appointment for botulinum, contact Premier Dermatology today.
