botox results

Postby samina » Mon Dec 22, 2008 9:51 am

I have recently had botox to try to help my servere flushing, it has been 5 days now and i have not noticed any improvement,. is this normal? How long does it normally take to start to see results? With each day and no improvement, I feel maybe this isnt going to be the answer to my prayers and I am devasted! This xmas marks 3 years of hell.

This information does not constitute medical advice. Any individual who believes they are suffering from any medical condition, including, but not limited to rosacea, should seek treatment from a licensed medical physician who is qualified to diagnose and treat the particular condition. Nicholas Soldo, M. D.

Botox is only an adjunct to many ways to address flushing---Most commonly used are IPL, clonidine in low doses, oracea and topicals such as metrogel etc to name a few=--botox does not reach peak effect for at least 2 weeks and sometimes even longer--if not effective by then a larger dose may need to be used--botox is not foolproof however and is not always totally effective---N Soldo,MD
