Years of repetitive facial movements like smiling, frowning, and laughing can cause lines and wrinkles to appear on the face as collagen diminishes with age. Botox works by blocking nerve signals to the muscles. When the signals are blocked, the muscles relax and the associated lines and wrinkles disappear.
Our goal is to keep you looking and feeling young and radiant. We want to you have lines of expression when you are actually showing expression, but to leave your face smooth when you are not.
There is minimal discomfort during the injections, as we only use Steriject™ Ultra-Fine Premium Needles and also offer topical numbing. The entire treatment usually takes less than 10 minutes.
There may be some mild swelling or redness which will resolve soon after the treatment. Bruising is not uncommon but typically minimal and patients can apply makeup immediately after the procedure. Patients are asked to refrain from heavy lifting or exercise but otherwise can return to normal activity right away.
Most patients start seeing some results after 72 hours, but it can take 1-2 weeks to see the full effects of Botox. Results will last for several months before retreatment is needed, though duration is somewhat variable. Our team will work with you on a schedule to maintain your results long-term.
Prices range from $12-14 per unit of Botox depending on if done on-site or as a mobile service at your home or office, which we offer with a minimum purchase.
