What Is Botox?
Over time, facial muscles create wrinkles and lines. The more these muscles contract, the more ingrained the lines can become. Botox® cosmetic safely and effectively interrupts the nerve impulses to the muscles causing these unwanted wrinkles. By injecting small doses in just the right places, Botox® can dramatically reduce the appearance of lines on the forehead, in between the eyes, and crow’s feet. Overall you will have a more relaxed, refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. Botox® also has several “off-brand” uses such as treating hyperhidrosis, TMJ, and Bell’s Palsy.
Small amounts of Botox® are injected into the desired areas. Tiny needles are used to inject Botox® into the muscles of the face, leaving you looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
Below are the most important factors that affect the cost of a Botox treatment:
- Size of the treatment area: The more areas you want treated, the more expensive the treatment is going to be. Keep in mind that numerous clinics offer discounts for treating multiple areas.
- Dose required for treatment: If the extent of your wrinkles (or otherwise desired treatment) is severe, more units of Botox may be needed, increasing the cost.
- Areas that require treatment: Some areas may require more units of Botox than others. For example, armpits may require more units than laugh lines
