Safe, effective, and fast-acting, Botox is a leader among popular cosmetic treatments. Look refreshed by reducing fine lines and wrinkles — revealing smooth, youthful skin.
Botox is one of the most studied, tested and used medications in the world. It became FDA approved for certain eye conditions back in 1989, and FDA approved for it’s cosmetic use in 2002. Botox belongs to a group of medications called neurotoxins. Now don’t let the “toxin” part scare you. Botox is derived from a bacteria found naturally in plants, soil and water. Botox has an amazingly safe reputation especially when injected by one of our trained professionals.
Botox works by weakening certain facial muscles that can create wrinkles over time. It actually blocks Acetylcholine from crossing muscle synapses that normally work to contract muscles. When injected by professionals, Botox can work magic in preventing future wrinkles from forming and smoothing current wrinkles.
It takes 14 days to see full results from your Botox treatment. Some patients start to see results after 5-7 days. Botox typically lasts for about 3 months. The longevity of your Botox also depends on your lifestyle and how well you take care of your skin.
Botox costs $14/unit. The number of units you need will depend on how many areas you want treated, the size of the area and the strength of your individual muscles. You and one of our talented injectors will come up with a tailored treatment plan based on your wants/needs.
