So what can you expect for your first BOTOX treatment? From cost to pain, keep reading to know what to expect from your first BOTOX treatment.
What Happens Before My First BOTOX Treatment?
Before the procedure, you’ll have a consultation with a provider! This is so you can understand what to expect and also for your provider to learn why you’re looking to get BOTOX. Before the procedure, your conversation with your provider will help create a treatment plan, establishing how much BOTOX will be used, where it will be administered, and how many sessions, if more than one, are needed.
How Much Can BOTOX Cost?
The cost for the first BOTOX treatment varies depending on the application site, how much you’re applying, and the severity of the issues being addressed. Each person gets their own individualized treatment. Cost can also vary depending on which state you’re in. It’s best to call ahead so a provider can understand your needs and goals to get the most accurate estimate possible.
Does BOTOX Hurt?
Nope! There may be a small, quick prick from the injection, but the whole process actually takes only about 10-15 minutes. If you’re worried about syringes, a topical anesthetic can be used, but even with it, the expected pain from a first BOTOX injection is minimal.
What Happens After My First BOTOX Treatment?
You can go about your day! Your provider will provide more in-depth after-procedure care, but typically, you should avoid strenuous activities for 24 hours along with doing something to aggravate the injection site such as wearing hats or makeup.
