How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable form of botulinum toxin that works by blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles responsible for creating certain fine lines and wrinkles. After injection, the muscle is paralyzed for 4 to 6 months resulting in smoother, younger looking skin.
BOTOX® primarily treats the following types of wrinkles:
- Glabellar lines (vertical lines between the eyebrows)
- Crow's feet (fine creases at the outer corners of the eyes)
- Horizontal lines across the forehead
- Bunny lines (small lines of the upper nose)
BOTOX® is different from injectable fillers like Juvederm®, which smooth wrinkles by filling them in. BOTOX® corrects creases formed not by volume loss, but by the repeated contractions of facial muscles.
When you visit Dr. Bogue for your injection appointment, the treatment area is iced to numb any potential discomfort. Dr. Bogue then makes a series of small injections based on your desired results. After your appointment, it will take about 3-7 days before you see the effect of BOTOX®. Dr. Bogue provides a complimentary touch-up after 1 week so that you can get perfect, symmetrical results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Cost
We believe that BOTOX® is like any plastic surgical procedure – you are paying for results, not for units! Our fee for this injectable is $700, which covers the injection of all areas and touch-ups at 1 week.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Advantages
Patients love BOTOX® because of the following characteristics of the injectable:
- Little to no downtime
- Results last 4-6 months
- Results can be maintained
- Injections take only several minutes to administer
Most people go back to work or other daily activities right away. You may see redness at the injection site, but it should begin to dissipate an hour or so after your appointment.
BOTOX® injections can most often be administered during the same appointment as your consultation.
