Collection of detailed patient anamnesis, patient examination, collection of the individual’s expectations, information about the procedure, photographing before the procedure, and evaluation of the results after the procedure are performed.  Neurology consultation may be required. The location of onset of pain is very important with respect to the administration of botulinum toxin. Individual’s pregnancy history should be investigated.

Any type of anesthesia is not required. The procedure is performed by microinjection method in the respective areas based on the individual’s needs. The procedure takes approximately 5-10 minutes.

Facial wash may take place half an hour after the process. Bending down or lying is not allowed for 2 hours. Redness, ecchymosis or swelling may occur after the administration of toxin. One may get back to work right away.  The effect becomes evident within 2 days, and is completely revealed within 7-10 days. If no improvement is achieved for the headaches, repeating the administration of toxin is not recommended.
