Botulinum Toxin

Botox®, Dysport®, Xeomin®, Jeuveau®

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, sometimes referred to as "Botox" by patients, is an injectable that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles.

What should I expect during a consultation for botulinum toxin injections?

During your botulinum toxin consultation be prepared to discuss:

  • Your goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies and medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco and drugs

Your plastic surgeon may also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • Discuss likely outcomes and any risks or potential complications

Botulinum toxin is a minimally invasive injection that's given in your plastic surgeon's office.

The consultation is the time to ask your plastic surgeon questions. To help, we have prepared a checklist of questions to ask during your botulinum toxin consultation.

It's natural to feel some anxiety, whether it's excitement for your anticipated new look or a bit of stress. Don't be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon.
