Botox injections: What to expect

Botox and other similar injections are the most common nonoperative cosmetic procedure in the world. Dr. Greg Evans, chair of the Plastic Surgery Department at UC Irvine Health, demonstrates how Botox injections are performed, and what patients can expect, step by step. While the procedure is straightforward and can be performed over a lunch hour, Evans warns that there are risks and potential for complications. To ensure the best outcome, patients are advised to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon, specially trained to administer the injections.
