What is Botox?
Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is FDA approved for cosmetic use. It is used to treat what is called “muscle driven” lines which are, frown lines (between your eyes), forehead lines, and crow’s feet. By injecting a small amount into the targeted muscles of these specific areas, the line lines are diminished, yet the face remains animated and natural looking.
Are the Effect Immediate and How long Does it last?
Botox® works slowly, showing its full effect over 7-10 days, and patients can expect results to last for approximately 4 months. You will notice the effect also wear off slowly over the 4 month period, as the lines become once again visible; it will be time for your next follow up treatment. Noting individual results may vary slightly.
Is There “Downtime”?
Is There Pre or Post-care?
In preparation for your treatment, you will be asked to abstain from the use of aspirin products for 10 days prior to your treatment. After the treatment, you will be instructed not to rub or touch the treated area, abstain from vigorous exercise, and not to lie flat for 4 hours.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
The cost of the Botox cosmetic treatment varies from patient to patient depending on their specific needs. A few factors we take into consideration is the amount of correction needed to achieve the desired results, the number of areas to be treated, and the amount of Botox used to achieve them.
