I would like Botox treatments. I have very pronounced frown lines and crow’s feet. How many injections would I get for these areas? Do you first apply a topical anesthetic?
Each patient is unique so I have to examine you. The injections of Botox or Dysport are quick and gentle and done by me (and not my nurse) with a very fine tipped needle. The better the technique, the less pain and bruising and swelling. Some patients use topical numbing but for the vast majority of my Botox patients, numbing is not necessary. There may be 5 to 7 or more small injections needed for the frown lines and 3 to 4 small injections for the crows feet Botox.
