What is Botox®?
Botox® is a leading injectable treatment, made from the botulinum neurotoxin. This main ingredient has a very unique effect: it blocks nerve signals in the body wherever it is injected. With this effect, we use Botox® to treat lines and wrinkles as well as hyperhidrosis, also known as excessive sweating.
When Botox® is administered in the facial region, it relaxes the muscles and prevents contraction. Face muscle movements are responsible for wrinkles, so as their movements are reduced, so is the appearance of lines and wrinkles. When it comes to hyperhidrosis treatment with Botox®, the Botox® formula blocks nerve signals from activating the sweat glands. As a result, patients can enjoy long-term relief from their symptoms.
How Much Does the Botox® Treatment Cost?
The cost of Botox® treatments will vary, as we find each guest pursues treatment for unique and often personal reasons. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals so we can administer a personalized Botox® treatment best suited for your needs. At this time, we will be able to inform you of the cost of treatment. If you have any concerns regarding the cost of your treatment, you may want to consider one of our financing options.
What is the Botox® Treatment Like?
The Botox® treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic onto the treatment area. This will numb the skin to minimize any discomfort during the injection process. After the skin is treated, the Botox® formula will be injected into the appropriate area. This may include various areas of the face for wrinkles, or into the armpits for hyperhidrosis. The injection process takes only a few moments, so the entire Botox® treatment is often completed in less than 30 minutes.
Does Botox® Have Side Effects?
The main side effects of Botox® include soreness, redness and mild bruising in the treatment area, and the extent of these effects will vary from person to person. In any case, patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within just a day of treatment - and oftentimes immediately. There is no downtime or formal recovery period following Botox® injections.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Botox®
The results from Botox® can take a few days to become visible, as it takes the formula time to take effect. You can expect to see results from Botox® within a few days, with the full results becoming visible about a week or two after treatment. Botox® results last approximately four to six months, after which time additional treatments can be performed to extend the duration of your results.
