How does Botox work?

Less frequently occurring (<3%) adverse reactions include pain in the face, erythema at the injection site, and muscle weakness.
Will I need anesthesia?
No. But your doctor may choose to numb the injected area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream before the actual treatment.
Do I need to take time off from work to recuperate?
Most patients go right back to work or continue their activities immediately after the procedure.
