BOTOX injectable treatments are available as an outpatient procedure right at our facility. If it is your first time to visit our office in San Francisco, CA to get BOTOX, we usually perform the treatment within the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Anthony. You will be asked to make a number of expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to see where the injections need to be placed.
The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed with a cool compress to help prevent bruising and discomfort. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you may get back to your usual day almost immediately.
