Botox is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet.
Common Areas of Botox® Treatment
- Forehead Wrinkles
- Brow Lines
- Crow’s Feet Around the Eyes
How Botox® works:
- Works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes wrinkles.
- It blocks the release of a substance called acetylcholine, and this reduces muscle activity.
- Results within 24-48 hours and can last up to 4 months.
How Often is Botox® Needed?
Botox ® is an effective, yet temporary, solution for dynamic wrinkles. The effects last around four months, sometimes longer. It is recommended that you get injections about two to three times a year. Yet, early studies indicate that the duration of treatment benefits is increased over time, resulting in patients requiring less frequent injections in the future.
What is the Botox® Procedure like?
This non-surgical treatment takes around 15 minutes and requires little to no recovery time for patients. Most patients find the treatment to be very tolerable, as the needle is tiny and a local antiesthetic is applied to the areas of injection.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The cost of the treatment depends on the amount of Botox® needed. We charge on the basis of units of Botox® used, which varies among patients. A no obligation, free consultation can be easily scheduled for anyone looking to get an individual cost estimate.
Can I Get the Same Effect with Other Products?
Yes. Forehead and eye wrinkles can also be non-surgically smoothed out by injectable fillers such as Dysport, Restylane, or Juvederm, which we also provide. More information about these products can be found under the “Non-Surgical” tab on our website.
- Most side effects are mild to moderate in nature and last 7 days or less.
