FAQ – Botox Frequently Asked Questions

How can I minimize the chance of bruising or bleeding from the injection?

Avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications – ibuprofen or similar products (Advil, Motrin, Aleve), St. John’s Wort, Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E or fish oil supplements 1 week prior to your treatment. If you require a pain remedy during this time period, it is okay to take Tylenol.

Bruising, if at all, is often minimal and can easily be covered with concealer, but we do recommend that you schedule any social plans accordingly for 7-10 days following your injection.

Will the Botox injection hurt?

A topical numbing cream may be applied to help with any discomfort. This does require a longer appointment time of an additional 15 minutes for optimal results.

How long will it take to see results?

While initial effects with the injection are as soon as 3-4 days, you should expect your final Botox results to be achieved 2-3 weeks after an injection.

Is there anything I should avoid post-injection?

Do not have any type of facial massage or place your face in a face cradle for a massage for 10 days following your injection.


“I cannot believe the difference in my face after the Botox injection I received at Rejuvent. I no longer have that “always worried and tired look” and my frown lines are totally gone! Thank you Dr. Bouzoukis for returning my face to my worry-less days.” – Claudia H., Scottsdale Patient
