BOTOX Injections Leave You Looking and Feeling Younger
Although the actual length of your procedure will vary depending on the extent of your concerns and your desired outcomes, most BOTOX injections are done in a 10-minute session.
Your doctor will use a small needle to inject BOTOX with minimal discomfort and no anesthesia. Without the uncomfortable side effects of anesthesia, you can return to your normal routine immediately after treatment.
The rejuvenating effects of BOTOX are noticeable within a few days and most patients achieve their desired results within two weeks. You can enjoy the results for approximately four months before requiring re-treatment.

But Isn't BOTOX Expensive?
Not necessarily. The cost of your treatment will depend on your desired treatment area. While larger areas such as your forehead will require more units of BOTOX, smaller areas including creases around your eyes may need fewer. According to USA Today, the average cost nationwide is approximately $10 to $20 per unit. Therefore most patients can expect to pay approximately $350 to $500 per session. When compared to the cost of surgical treatment for a facelift, BOTOX Cosmetic is an outstanding value.

Your Doctor Will Guide You Through Treatment But Here is What You Can Generally Expect
Preparing for Your Appointment
In order to ensure the best possible outcomes, you should avoid using alcohol, tobacco, and anti-inflammatory medications prior to treatment. These can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.
Consultation with Your Doctor
During your consultation, you should point out your areas of concern to help your doctor determine the best placement of your BOTOX injections.
On the Day of Treatment
Although most patients do not require anesthesia, your doctor may apply a topical numbing cream to your skin. Once you are comfortably numb, he or she will use a small needle to inject the filler.
After Your Appointment
You can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment. However, be careful not to apply pressure to the treatment areas and avoid heavy exercise.
Enjoy Your Results
According to American Family Physician, results should be visible within three days with maximum effects visible within two weeks.

Deciding What's Right for You
Although the use of BOTOX injections has steadily increased since their first cosmetic applications in 2002, there are many other options available. For example, surgical procedures such as fat grafting may be more appropriate for patients with allergies. Alternatively, a facelift can provide more comprehensive and long-lasting outcomes for patients with heavy cosmetic concerns. Your doctor can help you decide which procedure is right for you during your beauty consultation.
As a less invasive, less expensive alternative to cosmetic surgery, BOTOX Cosmetic can improve your self-confidence without anesthesia, incisions, or stitches. Schedule a consultation with your skin care specialist to find out if BOTOX is right for you.
