Botox Treatment – Patient Forms
Sample patient questionnaires and consent forms. A downloadable word document version is linked from the bottom of each section.
Botox Consent Form
Botulinum Toxin type A, marketed under the name Botox, is the only treatment for temporarily reducing crow’s feet, frown lines and moderate to severe lines on the forehead that is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Botox is administered by injecting a small amount of the solution into the muscles around the problem areas. The product temporarily relaxes facial muscles that are the underlying cause of wrinkles and therefore produces the appearance of flatter, smoother skin.
Important Advisory: Taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAIDs) or anticoagulant medication before a Botox procedure is not recommended. Taking such products can increase bruising. If it is possible and prudent to stop these medications, you must do so at least one week before the Botox injections.
Some people are poor candidates for this procedure, including people with certain types of medical conditions. These include conditions that cause facial paralysis like Bell’s Palsy, Myasthenia Gravis and Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant should not use Botox.
The effects of a Botox procedure most often last from 3 to 5 months, but this can vary. Patients may experience relaxation or weakness in muscles adjacent to the targeted area. The most common side effect is eyelid droop, a condition called ptosis. This impact occurs in less than 3 percent of injections and is temporary. It usually resolves before the intended effects of the Botox wears off.
The primary side effects of Botox include injection pain and bruising, outcomes that are usually temporary and minor. In some cases, localized saline hypersensitivity can happen. Botox has been on the market for many years and there has never been a reported case of an allergic reaction.
When you sign this form, you consent and agree that you have read this document about Botox injection and understand that using aspirin, NSAIDs or any sort of blood thinner within the previous 3 days may result in an increased risk of bruising after the injections. You understand that this procedure, like all medical procedures, has side effects in some cases. You state that the staff of this facility have been provided a truthful and thorough medical history. You understand that additional injections may be required if the desired effect is not seen within 10 to 14 days of treatment and that this facility charges a retouch fee in such cases. You understand that the positive effects of Botox are temporary and last about 3 to 5 months and that repeat injections are necessary 3 or 4 times a year for continued effect.
You certify by signing this form that you have read the information in this document and completely understand it. You choose to proceed based entirely on the information provided in this informed consent document. You have been given all necessary opportunities for discussion and all your questions regarding Botox injections have been answered. You therefore and hereby consent to the care or treatment described herein. You assume related hazards, risks and costs or expenses associated with and arising from this treatment and release hereby all employees and consultants of this and other healthcare facilities and affiliates and agents from all liability from treatment except in cases where hazards or risk are the result of proven gross negligence.

Botox Post Treatment Instructions
Post-Treatment Instructions And Information For Botox Clients
1. Avoid manipulating or rubbing in the area of the injection site for several hours. This can cause the Botox solution to migrate or move around, making it more likely to impact areas beyond the desired muscles.
2. Avoid exercising or excessively using the targeted muscle for at least 4 hours after the Botox injection procedure.
3. Avoid laying down or bending forward for at least 4 hours after the injection procedure. These actions can cause migration of the solution that can lead to complications and undesired outcomes or effects.
4. While you may see results in as little as 48 to 72 hours after injection, this is not typical. The majority of patients do not notice full impact from the treatment for 7 to 14 days. You should wait at least 30 days before deciding if you want additional treatment to avoid over-treating an area.
5. Although exceptionally rare, an allergic reaction to Botox is possible. If you notice skin redness of an extreme nature, excessive swelling or a developing rash, call the office immediately or arrange to be seen by a physician. The same is necessary if you experience puffy or very swollen eyes, a severe headache or other adverse reactions. Previous treatments can cause antibodies to develop that can lead to undesired reactions.
6. Feel free to contact this facility with questions, comments or concerns at any time following treatment. We want you to safe, happy and completely satisfied.
