More and more men and women have come in for BOTOX® to rejuvenate their facial appearance. This revolutionary injectable reduces the signs of aging, specifically fine wrinkles and harsh vertical neck bands.

What Is a BOTOX® Cosmetic Injection?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead and mouth to smooth crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® injections block nerve impulses, weakening muscles to relax wrinkles and give the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.

Ideal Candidates for BOTOX®

If you are seeing horizontal lines on your forehead, crow’s feet around your eyes, and frown lines, then you are a good candidate for BOTOX® injections. You should be 18 years or older and in good overall health.

Nursing or pregnant women are not advised to get this injectable treatment. You should not have any known allergies to botulinum toxin. It is important to have realistic expectations before going through any BOTOX® procedure.

The Procedure

The whole procedure can take a few minutes to complete. Anesthesia may be administered beforehand. The target areas will be cleansed, then the injection sites will be marked. Then, using a small needle, BOTOX® will be injected directly into the neuromuscular tissue. Patients may only feel a slight pressure and discomfort from the injection.

Aftercare

Due to the minimally invasive nature of BOTOX® treatments, no downtime or recovery time is needed. You may be instructed to keep upright for the first few hours. Avoid rubbing the injection sites to prevent the injected substance from spreading to other areas.

Avoid physical exertion or exercises for the next 24 hours. Other than that, you can return to work and your normal routine right away.

Cost of BOTOX®

The cost of a BOTOX® will depend on several factors. The price can be affected by body type, type of technique performed, surgical complications, and even allergies. Find out more by scheduling a consultation or clicking our pricing guide.
