What is Botox®?
Botox® is a cosmetic injectable treatment that reduces lines and wrinkles that are caused by contractions of the facial muscles. Known as “dynamic wrinkles,” these signs of aging most often develop on the forehead and around the eyes. Botox® contains an ingredient that temporarily relaxes the muscles, allowing the skin to relax as well. As this occurs, the wrinkles soften and are less visible.
The Botox® treatment is quick and painless. A small needle is used to inject Botox® into the muscles. You may feel a slight pinch on the skin as the needle is inserted. Dr. Hueneke administers Botox® at several sites along the facial muscles to create a consistent reduction in wrinkles. Botox® can be used for:
- Lines that develop horizontally on the forehead
- Vertical lines between the eyes
- Crow’s feet
What is the Cost of Botox®?
The average cost of Botox® is $13 per unit, although this does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for Botox® at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What Are the Benefits of Botox®?
- No incisions or scars
- Treatment take less than 30 minutes
- Long-lasting results
What is the Recovery Time for Botox®?
Botox® treatments do not require any downtime. You can come in for your treatment and then return to your normal day. The tissue at each injection site may feel tender and you may have some minor swelling. These symptoms typically only last 24 to 48 hours. You see some initial improvement after the injections, and full results can take up to seven days.
Dr. Hueneke recommends that his patients schedule follow-up treatments approximately every four months to maintain the anti-aging benefits of Botox®. The results of each treatment may last four to six months.
