Wrinkle Correction With BOTOX® Cosmetic
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved cosmetic injectable to treat frown lines and crows feet. It is a series of injections of a clinical formula of Botulinum toxin type A which naturally relaxes the facial muscles that cause you to frown or squint. By weakening these muscles, wrinkles and furrows around the forehead and eye area are smoothed.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
The treatment time is typically about 10-15 minutes and within a week after treatment, full BOTOX® results will appear. These results will remain for 3-4 months, and additional treatments are required to maintain a more youthful and smoother appearance.
There is no recovery time and most patients can immediately return to normal activity. BOTOX® is performed as a minimally invasive alternative to address the signs of aging without surgery. It can also be used after a plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to maintain results.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
We price Botox by the “unit.” Units are a form of measurement that all injectables like Botox use for dosing. How many units you need for your best result will depend on a host of factors like skin quality, muscle strength, anatomy, and other factors. This is why choosing a medical practice that has experienced injectors is vital when achieving your best results. Our expert Botox injectors are at the forefront of training and expertise when it comes to producing quality results that reflect the person you are and not someone else.
