What Happens During Botox Treatment?

When you arrive for your Botox treatment, you’ll first have a consultation with the doctor. You’ll talk about your expectations and listen to the doctor’s suggestions in terms of how to proceed. Usually, the injections happen during that same appointment, after the consultation. The Botox will be prepared, and the areas to be treated will be cleansed. Anesthesia is generally not used. Even though several injections are performed, the needle is very small, and pain is minimal.


Application techniques are generally the same, but may vary in dosage, and how long the effects last. Three common brands are:

  • Botox Cosmetic – most widely used
  • Dysport
  • Xeomin

Botox, which is comprised of Botulinum, is also used to treat non-cosmetic conditions like muscle spasms, facial asymmetry (like Bell's Palsy), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraines, and strabismus (crossed/lazy eye).

How Long Will the Procedure Take?

A Botox session will take about 10 -15 minutes, once the consultation is complete.

What Does the Recovery Process Look Like?

You can return to (almost) normal life as soon as you walk out of the clinic door. You’ll want to walk around and/or sit upright but do remember to take it easy, avoiding strenuous activity for the rest of the day. You may have some redness or swelling around the injection sites, but that should resolve quickly. 

You can expect to see clear results to show within a week, which will last for three to six months.
