Aging and frequent muscle movements can cause lines to appear between your eye brows (frown lines), along the forehead, and around your eyes (crow’s feet). BOTOX® can decrease the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and help you turn back the signs of aging. BOTOX® is also used as a preventative measure to relax facial muscles before lines become apparent at rest.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by relaxing muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. This action reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form.
Does Botox injections hurt?
A small thin needle is given in tiny injections to decrease discomfort. Many patients do not report pain. Local numbing cream can be applied before treatment to optimize comfort.
Can I return to work after Botox injections?
Yes, you can return back to work after your injections. You will receive instructions after your botox, which will describe activities that should be avoided.
When can I expect to see Botox results?
Results can be seen within 3-7 days. A nurse will call you after your treatment to follow-up on your results.
How much does Botox cost?
The cost of botox is individually based on the amount used. The amount used is determined by the treatment area, muscle strength, and previous botox results. In order to provide personalized results, the amount of botox needed will be determined during your consultation. We use the recommended dilution by the BOTOX® manufacturer, Allergan. We do not over dilute the botox to save money, like other botox injectors.
