What is Botox?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is indicated to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles from the forehead, between the brows (Glabellar lines) and outer corners of your eyes (crow's feet.) Having a plastic surgeon perform your Botox injections is a great plus to your treatment. Injecting BOTOX may seem like a simple procedure, but it's actually both an art and science that only an experienced healthcare professional should do. There are 43 muscles in your face and it's vital that the person who performs the injections understands and pinpoints the correct spots to optimize your treatment.
What to expect
BOTOX involves quick and nearly painless injections which block the muscular nerve signals and weaken the muscle so it can't contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles. You may notice results within a few days, but it can take up to a week to see the full effect.
The effects of BOTOX typically lasts three to four months. When the effects of your BOTOX treatment begins to fade, your muscle reactions and the wrinkles will return. Although generally safe, botulinum toxin side effects and complications can include: temporary bruising and/or swelling at the injection site.
The cost is $14 per unit. While the total cost will depend on the number of areas injected, generally treatment cost is between $300 and $600.
