BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles between the brows, forehead and side of eyes in people from 18 – 65 years of age. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is widely used by both men and women who want to smooth, reduce and temporarily eliminate wrinkles and fine lines.
The actual treatment takes just a few minutes and is administered to the site(s) on your face via tiny injections. It may take up to 2 weeks to see a noticeable improvement. Clinical results for moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, forehead and side of eyes can last up to 3 months. Results are typically successful but may vary between patients depending on the person.
Botox costs vary depending on a number of factors such as injectors, location of the business, units needed, and of course if there’s a promotion or an event. Keep in mind that every patient is genetically different, and some patients need more Botox than others to achieve the same effect.
A single unit of Botox ranges between $10-12. The total cost depends on what you’re trying to achieve since different facial areas need different amounts of units.
Many patients go from one business to another trying to find the best Botox deals. We do not recommend getting your Botox treatment at the cheapest price. Establish a relationship with one business where you feel safe, comfortable, and see good results.
That also depends on so many factors such as age, gender, and lifestyle. Generally speaking you will need to come back for treatments every three to six months in order to keep your forehead wrinkles from coming back.
The good news is that the more Botox injections you get, the fewer Botox units you’ll need since injected muscles get a little weaker and become “trained” to not contract.
