What is Botox®?
Botox®, also known as botulinum toxin type A, is an affordable and popular method to help you achieve younger looking skin. Botox® is injected into desired regions of the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles using a small needle. Botox® prevents the skin from releasing a chemical called acetylcholine, which is responsible for causing wrinkles. Botox® can be performed safely on both adult men and women.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
Botox® treatment must be individualized to help you reach your desired goals and results. To obtain a more accurate estimate of how much this treatment option may cost, you need to obtain a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Lodge or the staff at Cool Springs MD. We can help address any questions or concerns you have about the procedure.
Am I a Candidate for Botox®?
If you have wrinkles on your face, including your forehead, eyes, or mouth, Botox® can help reduce the appearance of these wrinkles. It is an effective and safe method that can be used on both adult men and women. It is also an option if you experience excessive sweating.
How is Botox® Performed?
First, the team at Cool Springs MD will mark the target areas of the skin with a marking pencil and prepare the areas with an antiseptic. Then, Botox® is injected underneath the skin of the desired areas with a small needle. The areas where Botox® are injected are points of muscle contraction, which may or may not be where the wrinkles are. Botox® is a therapy method with minimal side effects that can improve the appearance of wrinkles on your face.
What is Recovery Like After Botox®?
Following a Botox® treatment, it is recommended that you avoid sunlight for a few days. You can go home after receiving Botox® and return to your normal daily activities, but you may experience some side effects. These include minimal discomfort to the injection site(s), headaches, nausea, or flu-like symptoms. These symptoms will resolve after a few days.
How Long Will My Botox® Results Last?
Botox® results can help remove the frowning appearance caused by wrinkles, reducing wrinkles by up to 80 percent. It results in more youthful, rejuvenated skin. You will typically notice these results within a few days after receiving treatment, and results last between three to six months. Subsequent treatments might be recommended to maintain more long-term results.
