. Youthful Skin
Botox is an injectable neuromuscular blocking medication that works by preventing the transmission of neurotransmitters that tell muscles to move. Botox relaxes the small facial muscles that generate wrinkles, allowing the skin to flatten out and seem younger. Botox has the extra benefit of being able to prevent migraine migraines.
The following is a summary of the most frequently asked Botox inquiries from our patients. Please contact us if you have any further questions, comments, or concerns.
What Is Botox and How Does It Work?
Botox is a refined protein that is also known as botulinum toxin type A. Botox’s effects were originally investigated in the 1960s. The FDA approved botulinum type a to treat muscular spasms in 1989. In 2002, the FDA approved cosmetic use, and millions of individuals have been treated since then.
Is Botox Injection Painful?
The treatment, according to our patients, is no worse than an insect bite. While we don’t usually use anaesthesia for Botox treatments, in some situations a numbing lotion can be used to the area.
What Is the Price of Botox?
Botox costs roughly 22 dollars per unit on average, although this can vary. So, if you need 25 units to correct forehead creases, the cost would be $550 at $22 per unit. It would cost $500 if you needed 20 units, and so on. Be wary of unqualified doctors who charge less than the norm for your safety. When it comes to expense, keep in mind that if you get Botox on a regular basis, you’ll need 3-4 treatments per year to maintain your youthful appearance. As time passes, some patients require less Botox, resulting in a minor decrease in prices from year to year.
*After XEOMIN/BOTOX injection(s): • Do not lie down for four hours after treatment. Do not massage the treated area. This can cause XEOMIN/BOTOX to spread to the other muscles increasing the risks of complications. Exercise the muscles every 15 minutes for one hour after the treatment.
