After years of domination in the cosmetic industry, BOTOX® has cemented its reputation as one of the safest and most effective anti-aging procedures in the world. Using an advanced formula, BOTOX® can significantly soften some of the most common signs of aging.
Over the years, repeated facial muscle movements eventually lead to the development of wrinkles in the parts of our faces that express emotion, aka “expression lines.” BOTOX® is a neuromodulator, meaning it can block nerve impulses, which relax the facial muscles that cause the development of crow’s feet, laugh lines, frown lines, and more, creating a more youthful and smoother appearance. BOTOX® can also work as a treatment for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
As an injectable, BOTOX® requires one quick treatment with results that can last for multiple months. Decades of use by millions of patients around the world and multiple clinical trials have shown that BOTOX® is safe and reliable for long-term, repeated use.

Dr. Kathleen Morno and Dawn Davidson, RN, are Allergan trainers who train other physicians on how to inject Allergan products such as BOTOX®, Juvéderm®, Juvéderm® Voluma, and Juvéderm® Volbella.

What Happens During a Chicago BOTOX® Treatment
Your BOTOX® procedure will be incredibly quick, simple, and relatively painless — the procedure takes less than a half an hour to complete and no anesthesia is necessary. Our practitioners usually inject BOTOX® into areas like around the eyes, forehead, and mouth to specifically target expression areas.
Patients receive several small injections during a typical treatment. Your provider will carefully place each injection to maximize its effect and create the natural-looking results that characterize our practice. The average treatment takes less than 30 minutes, but if you’re receiving BOTOX® at the same time as a facial or microneedling treatment, plan for additional time.
Recovery After BOTOX® Cosmetic
Some patients may experience mild bruising at the injection sites, but in general, BOTOX® does not require any downtime or recovery period.
Common side effects after BOTOX® include redness, tenderness, bruising, and swelling. Most patients find these resolve within a few days. Minimal care is necessary after your treatment, and our team will provide detailed recovery instructions during your visit.
