BOTOX Frequently Asked Questions
Turn back the hands of time and prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Forever Slender Med Spa in Wayland, MA is proud to offer BOTOX® to local men and women.
This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX® can make a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic lines can still exist. BOTOX® is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle.
To correct these dynamic lines, BOTOX® is injected to soften the skin. BOTOX® is injected by our fantastic Dr. Lisa Barna between the brows, on the Crow's feet and along the forehead.

BOTOX Procedure Technique
BOTOX® is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically.
BOTOX® is also used as a preventive treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes.
BOTOX Smile Without Worry
BOTOX® injections are done as an outpatient procedure directly at Forever Slender Med Spa. If it is your first time to visit us in Wayland, MA for BOTOX®, we usually perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation.
You will be asked to make a number of facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow Dr. Lisa Barna to see where the injections need to be placed.
The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX® will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help prevent bruising and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary.
BOTOX® injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities almost immediately.
What to Expect with BOTOX®
After the injection, you can resume your normal activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours.
You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly red, swollen, or bruised for a few days, but you will not experience any serious or lasting side effects.
In most cases, it generally takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX® are visible.
The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at Forever Slender Med Spa to maintain your results.
BOTOX Ideal Candidates
How much does BOTOX® cost?
Your cost for a BOTOX® treatment will depend on how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, a member of our team will create your personal treatment plan before they can estimate your costs.
BOTOX® can produce amazing results when performed by a skilled injector, but it can also be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections.
To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can earn points for BOTOX® treatments and other Allergan products, like Juvéderm®.
How long will my results last?
The results from BOTOX® can last up to four months. Most patients schedule an appointment every season to refresh their results, but you may want to come back sooner.
If you are getting BOTOX® while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule appointments further apart.
After listening to your goals and creating your treatment plan, we will be better able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX®) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm® and Restylane) are both popular cosmetic treatments that decrease wrinkles and smooth fine lines.
BOTOX® relaxes overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corners of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines.
Wrinkle fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface.
Depending on your goals, we may recommend BOTOX®, injectable fillers, or a combination of both for a liquid "facelift."
What's the difference between BOTOX®??????? and Xeomin?
BOTOX® and Xeomin are injectable wrinkle treatments that use botulinum toxin (type A). Both relax facial muscles to soften dynamic wrinkles, but each formula is designed to suit specific areas and needs.
There are subtle differences between them including the recommended dosage, treatment spread, and length of results. Our team will choose the best brand or brands to meet your needs and goals.
Is BOTOX®??????? safe?
When administered properly, BOTOX® rarely causes any complications.
With that said, it is still very important to find someone who has experience in handling this medication. Too much of the product can cause an undesirable outcome.
Dr. Lisa Barna, a skilled injector, will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected.
As one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today, it is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX® is also used to treat medical conditions such as facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
Plan Your Procedure
You can smile, frown, laugh, and make any other expression you want without causing wrinkles thanks to BOTOX® injectable treatments.
To smooth and prevent lines on the face, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lisa Barna in Wayland, MA to learn more about this amazing nonsurgical injectable.
