Botox

$13.00 per unit

Botox is very effective in treating dynamic facial wrinkles. These wrinkles are formed as a result of the continuous muscle movement related to expressions such as squinting, laughing, and frowning. Dynamic wrinkles are typically found across the forehead (furrows), between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and at the corner of the eyes (crow’s feet).

About This Service

Botox remains one of the biggest names in the anti-aging cosmetic industry, and millions of men and women around the world have benefitted from its wrinkle reducing properties.

What is Botox?

Botox (botulinum toxin type A), is a purified protein that is derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria.

What does it treat?

Botox is very effective in treating dynamic facial wrinkles. These wrinkles are formed as a result of the continuous muscle movement related to expressions such as squinting, laughing, and frowning. Dynamic wrinkles are typically found across the forehead (furrows), between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), and at the corner of the eyes (crow’s feet).

How does it work?

Botox freezes the muscles by blocking the normal nerve impulses to the muscles that cause them to contract. The muscles then relax, and this gives the dynamic wrinkles a chance to soften.

How many treatments do you need?

One Botox treatment is often all that’s needed, but this may need to be adjusted depending on the area being treated.

What to expect

After treatment there may be some minor pain and swelling, but this should resolve quickly. Most patients are able to resume regular activities right away, but strenuous activity should be avoided for the first 24 hours.

It often takes 7 – 10 days for Botox to settle and the results to be seen. The full effects can take up to 3 weeks. Botox typically lasts 3-4 months, but some patients experience results for longer.

After Care Instructions

  • DO NOT lie down for at least 4 hours after the injection.
  • DO NOT massage or touch the areas injected for at least 4 hours.
  • Botox begins to have an effect within 3 to 7 days, but it takes a total of 14 days before the effect is complete.
  • For patients being treated for the first time, the effect may begin to diminish in as early as 2 months, whereas the effect typically lasts longer (3 to 6 months) with repeated treatments.
  • Bruising is normal. Ice the area immediately after if a bruise begins to appear.
  • Some patients may experience a headache within the first few days after treatment. This is not uncommon, although Botox more often has a beneficial effect on headaches

If you are looking for a non-invasive treatment to refresh your appearance, Botox may be right for you. Contact the Aesthetic Center of SCS to learn more about Botox injections.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do neurotoxins work?

They work by blocking the nerve signals needed for facial muscles to contract. It’s the repetitious contraction of facial muscles that causes expression lines and wrinkles. Once injected, the neuromodulator relaxes the muscles and decreases their movement to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles in the area.

What areas can be treated with neurotoxins?

Neurotoxins can be used to address lines and wrinkles on the forehead, eye area (crow’s feet), and lip lines. It may be injected to soften dimpling of the chin. It can also be injected into the muscles of the jaw for a jaw slimming effect.

Does it hurt?

Treatments are quick with minimal discomfort. The treatment requires no anesthesia or recovery time.

How soon will I see results?

Results will appear gradually over 5-14 days following injection.

How long does it last?

The results typically last between 3-5 months from the date of injection.
Patients can choose to maintain their results for longer periods by undergoing periodic maintenance treatments every 3-4 months.

When should I start getting neurotoxins?

There is no right or wrong age to start using neurotoxins. Patients should be evaluated and receive a consult prior to treatment.

Are neurotoxins safe?

Yes, they are FDA approved for reversing lines and wrinkles
