How Much Does Botox Cost?
You can find the Botox cost per unit here. There is no charge for the injection itself and Botox is typically priced per unit of medicine. The total cost of a Botox treatment depends on how many units you need to get your desired results.
All Botox injections are performed by Dr. Windle. Because he has operated on these specific muscles that create the wrinkles of the forehead, between the bows and around the eyes, he knows exactly where to place the Botox. He often uses less than many Botox injectors but gets the same or even better Botox results. He is classified and an Expert Injector.
Some Botox treatment centers charge a flat-rate for treating an area. Most people require different amounts of Botox in each area and Botox treatments need to be individualized. Paying a flat-rate to treat a particular area will likely mean that some patients will pay more, and some will pay less, than they would if they paid by the unit.
At Partington Plastic Surgery we do offer Botox packages, providing considerable savings on Botox treatments, as well as quarterly injection events that offer greatly reduced prices on those days. Sign up on the contact form if you would like ongoing information about when those events will be occurring.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox slows down the neurotransmission of signals from your nerves to your muscles when Botox is injected into the areas where you have unwanted wrinkles or lines.
Since wrinkles are often caused by muscle movement, by blocking the signals that cause our facial muscles to contract, Botox can relax the muscles and, ultimately, reduce the appearance of wrinkled skin.
After Botox in injected it takes about 3 to 10 days for it to work since it must absorbed and then transported down the nerve ending, where it will work
How Long Does Botox Last?
Typically, Botox lasts 3 to 4 months. It is slowly wearing off at this point and Botox’s effects will be completely gone at 6 months.
If you come back every 3 to 4 months for Botox, you will see improved results and often, in time you will need less Botox.
Where Is Botox Used?
Botox is most often used to reduce wrinkles in between the eyebrows, or the Glabella area (also known as the elevens), forehead wrinkles, the bunny lines or lines at the top of your nose, and the areas around the eyes (the Crow’s Feet).
How Do I Know How Much Botox I Need?
Good question. In order to figure this out, Dr. Windle needs to see you, evaluate your face and the wrinkles that you do not like and then match the areas of concern with your goals. Botox is a little like a recipe and sometimes we have to add a little more or use a little less the next time. Dr. Windle maps your treatment exactly, each time so that we can alter the plan to you each time.
Is Botox Right for Me?
The best way to determine whether Botox is right for you is to come in for a consultation. Dr. Windle will educate you about what Botox can and cannot do for you. As he says, “He wants to be your cosmetic consultant’ not just your Botox injector!”
