Botox Injection

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved drug classified as a neurotoxin that, when injected, relaxes the muscles near the injection site. A neurotoxin is a substance that blocks nerve impulses released inside the actual targeted muscles, temporarily paralyzing the muscle. Made from a purified toxin called botulinum, it freezes the muscle, smoothing the complexion and drastically reducing the appearance of fine lines, drooping skin and wrinkles. 

Though Botox contains the botulinum toxin, the dosage required to relax your facial muscles and smooth fine lines is well below any levels that can cause harm. Botulinum is widely used in medicine and can treat non-cosmetic conditions such as chronic migraines, incontinence or overactive bladder, hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, lazy eye and eye twitching. Botox treatment can be used in place of invasive cosmetic surgeries to smooth out the skin, providing a more youthful, revitalized look. 

After a Botox treatment, your muscles will relax, smoothing dynamic wrinkles, fine lines and creases, giving you the youthful appearance you desire. Over time, repetitive muscles contractions from movements such as smiling, frowning, and laughing can form fine lines, drooping and eventually deeper wrinkles that become permanent on our skin. Injectable solutions like Botox are specifically tailored to help soften or decrease the movement that creates wrinkles. The lines you see forming around your eyes, in your forehead and neck will also be stopped short in their tracks as your muscles relax and cease the repetitive motion that causes these wrinkles in the first place. 

Botox is administered via small injections at the site of any creasing in targeted areas of the face. Recovery time is almost non-existent, and your results may last up to three to five months. You might think that treatment so effective and highly sought after would come with a hefty price tag, but Botox is surprisingly affordable, especially with months between maintenance injections. 

Your Botox price will depend on various factors, however, including how many areas you'll be targeting and how many units desired to soften movement or "freeze" the muscle. As such, your unique plan will determine your final price, so get in touch today with a consultation to get that plan started.

A Botox treatment is no more invasive than a slight pinch.

With full FDA approval and the minute dosage used in cosmetic procedures, Botox treatments are entirely safe

You’ll be able to notice pleasing results almost right away, and within two weeks, you should be able to see the full effect of your treatments. The use of Botox will also act as a preventative measure to block the creation of new fine lines, drooping and wrinkles as your muscles remain stationary. 

Your treatment will be complete in mere moments, and aside from the risk of light bruising and a little tenderness, there is no need for recovery. Maintenance is as easy as making an appointment every three to six months for new Botox injections. Botox injections are considered a form of cosmetic surgery but are limited to injections and replace more invasive forms of surgery to accomplish similar goals.

Common Questions About Botox

 

How long does Botox Last?

Botox results can last for three to five months, depending on the patient, which means you’ll need a fully customized treatment plan to maintain your results. Generally speaking, patients will come back every three to six months for another round, but after several treatments, your muscles may become accustomed to minimal movement. 

Your Botox results can begin to last longer if this occurs. Each Botox patient is different and will see differing results last for varying amounts of time. That’s why it’s crucial that you work with a knowledgeable Botox practitioner to develop a fully customized treatment plan built especially for you.

How long does Botox take to work?

The results of your Botox treatments can begin to show within hours of your procedure, while the final results will become apparent within about two weeks. Although you may notice some slight bruising and tenderness right away, you’ll still be able to get back to your daily routine with minimal discomfort within hours . 

Minimal swelling, of any, will dissipate within the first few days as the results of your Botox injections become visible. To ensure the Botox delivers the results you desire, avoid rubbing your face, wearing makeup or any heavy exercise that could increase blood flow for the first few hours post treatment.

How many units of Botox do I need?

Each patient is unique, with different goals and needs. As such, the number of units your treatment would require depends entirely on which areas you’d like to treat and how many. Crow’s feet require a different number of Botox units for glabellar (furrow) lines which need a different number of units from forehead Botox treatments. 

After coming up with your personalized plan suited to your specific end goals, we’ll reach the final unit count. Get in touch for your consultation, and we’ll get started!

How much does Botox cost?

While the results are invaluable, Botox treatments themselves are relatively affordable, especially when you consider that treatments are so spread out, with months in between. The final cost for your treatment will depend on your specific goals and needs.

Each area requires varying amounts of Botox to achieve the best results, which means your price will reflect that. Together, we’ll build a fully customized plan unique to your aesthetic goals and come up with a price from there. so get in touch to find out more!
