WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox® Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world.
It is a neurotoxin that is treatment injected into different muscles in the face in order to temporarily improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox injections block the nerve impulse from reaching targeted muscle areas, as the muscle relaxes the overlying wrinkle is smoothed and improved.
The most common areas treated with Botox® Cosmetic are:
Forehead lines (frontalis)
Frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines)
Crow's feet around the eyes
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
Standard pricing for Botox® cosmetic is $10 per unit.
The number of units needed will be calculated based on the severity of your wrinkles. Male patients typically require higher doses than female patients. A rough guide is shown above.
At MediDerma, our physicians will tailor the number of units to your desired aesthetic. However, under-dosing your treatment can lead to a suboptimal and shorter duration of effect.
