When administered in controlled and moderate amounts, there are minimal side effects or pain from Botox beyond the ‘pin-prick’ sensation of the actual injection. A treatment most commonly lasts about four to six months. Tiny bruises occasionally occur at the site of the injection but they can easily be treated with Arnica.
Injection of these hyaluronic acid fillers is extremely well tolerated and after-effect free and lasts up to eight months. Minimal swelling from 1-7 days post injection depending on the treatment site.
