BOTOX® is a quick, simple treatment that helps women and men restore a refreshed, more youthful look. Unlike injectable fillers, which restore volume under the skin, BOTOX® is a purified protein that works by relaxing the small facial muscles that contract and cause facial lines and creases called dynamic wrinkles. When administered by a skilled injector, BOTOX® corrects these wrinkles and lines, allowing them to gradually smooth out.
● make an improvement in the lines of expression on our foreheads, between our eyebrows and around our eyes
● improve the appearance of an angry or unhappy look caused by these furrows
● reduce these lines with a simple injection, involving no downtime, no healing time and no scars
While experiences vary, treated areas typically begin appearing smoother within a week of your treatment and remain that way for up to four months. We recommend periodic touch-up treatments to maintain your refreshed look.
The price of a treatment session varies from patient to patient based on several factors, including the area treated and the amount of BOTOX® needed. We aim to be transparent on the cost of a treatment session, so we will give you a detailed price quote during your initial consultation.
Yes, we can combine injectable and filler treatments. Because BOTOX® and fillers are used for different concerns, many of our patients have both types of injections performed during the same treatment session.
Tell your doctor if you've had any type of Botox injection within the past four months. Also tell your doctor if you take muscle relaxants, sleeping aids or allergy medications. If you take blood thinners, you may need to stop taking them several days before your injection to reduce your risk of bleeding or bruising.
Most people don't feel much discomfort during the procedure. But you may want your skin numbed beforehand, especially if your palms or soles are being treated for excessive sweating. Your doctor might use one or more of various methods available to numb the area, such as topical anesthesia, ice and vibration anesthesia, which uses massage to reduce discomfort.
Botox injections are usually performed in a doctor's office. Your doctor uses a thin needle to inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your skin or muscles. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated.
Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours. This may help prevent the toxin from spreading to a different area. You can return to your normal activities right after the procedure.
Botox injections usually begin working one to three days after treatment. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three months or longer. To maintain the effect, you'll need regular follow-up injections.
