What Is the Procedure Like?
You will thoroughly discuss your aesthetic needs and goals with your surgeon before you begin the treatment. During this consultation, your wrinkles and age lines will be examined carefully to ensure that you will benefit from the treatment.
You will also discuss your complete medical history, including any allergies you may have, in order to prevent any complications or issues. You can look at before-and-after photos and ask any questions that you may have at this time.
Botox treatment is quite convenient and quick. It is done by injecting Botox through a needle into the contracted muscles of the areas targeted for treatment. Botox injections do not necessarily require anesthesia and can be done within minutes.
Once the procedure is complete, you will be able to immediately return to your daily activities without any need for downtime or recovery. It is often called a lunch-time procedure because patients can get the treatment on their lunch break and then go right back to work.
In some cases, there might be a small degree of discomfort and swelling, depending on the areas you inject. However, these effects are short-lived.
The results of Botox typically last for around three to four months. After this time, patients return for follow-up treatments in order to maintain their youthful results.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox is a safe FDA-approved treatment option that has been rigorously tested. Botulinum is a toxic agent that can be poisonous, so surgeons use only small and safe doses of the drug for cosmetic purposes.
What is the Cost of a Botox?
Botox price is $200 per syringe ($12.50 per unit).
