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 questions should I ask my plastic surgeon about botulinum toxin injections?

Use this checklist as a guide during your botulinum toxin consultation:

  • Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
  • Were you specifically trained in the field of plastic surgery?
  • Is the office-based surgical facility accredited by a nationally- or state-recognized accrediting agency, or is it state-licensed or Medicare-certified?
  • Am I a good candidate for botulinum toxin?
  • What will be expected of me to get the best results?
  • Who will perform the botulinum toxin injections?
  • Have they been specifically trained in this procedure?
  • Where and how will you perform my procedure or treatment?
  • How long of a recovery period can I expect?
  • What are the risks and possible complications associated with my procedure?
  • How can I expect to look over time?
  • Do you have before-and-after photos I can look at for this procedure
  • What results are reasonable for me?
