BOTOX is commonly referred to as a “lunch break procedure” because it can be done in a quick appointment, after which you can return to work or other daily activities right away. After consulting with you about your goals and concerns, one of The SPA’s qualified injectors will use a very fine needle to administer a short series of injections. Some patients say these feel like insect bites.
You may experience some redness, swelling, tenderness, and, rarely, bruising around the injection site for a day or 2. It’s important not to excessively elevate your blood pressure or push on the treated area during this time.
Your results will start developing in a few days, with full results visible in about 1 to 2 weeks You’ll typically see reduced lines and wrinkles lasting about 3 to 4 months, though it varies for each person.

When you visit us in Tallahassee for a consultation, our experienced injectors will discuss how many units you’ll need to achieve your desired result.
