Fact or Fiction: Botox takes effect immediately.

Fiction! Botox takes a little bit of time to relax and reduce facial muscle movement, which helps improve the appearance of wrinkles and deep lines. You should see full results in 7-10 days after treatment.

Fact or Fiction: Botox is temporary.

Fact! Botox treatment will not last forever, but typically 3-4 months.

Fact or Fiction: Botox only treats facial wrinkles.

A few medical uses for Botox include treating migraines, TMJ, overactive bladder, excessive underarm sweating and sweaty palms, and many other medical concerns.
