Prior to your procedure, Dr. Cabbabe will carefully plan the injection areas with you. He will offer a topical anesthetic which takes about 30 minutes to take effect. This can help take the edge off of the injections. After the planned injection sites have been cleaned with alcohol, Dr. Cabbabe will inject the Botox or Dysport into the areas. The entire procedure takes less than 5 minutes.
Preparing for Surgery
Dr. Cabbabe will ask that you refrain from taking any aspirin, plavix, Coumadin or any other type of blood thinner.
Dr. Cabbabe will ask that you keep ice on the injection site to decrease the risk of any bruising. He will also ask you not to lie down for a few hours. The agents take 3 – 5 days to see an effect and last from 4- 6 months depending on the quantity injected.
