How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX is a purified form of the botulinum toxin that temporarily relaxes specific facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles over time. BOTOX does not fill in wrinkles like dermal fillers; it allows the wrinkles to gradually smooth out on their own. Although plastic surgeons typically do not use BOTOX for non-cosmetic purposes, these properties also make it an effective treatment for neck spasms, overactive bladder, and excessive sweating.

How are BOTOX treatments performed?

BOTOX treatments are performed with quick injections in precise areas of the targeted muscles, which are not always in the wrinkle itself. Because the needle used is so short and thin, patients typically find the treatments quite tolerable.

What is recovery like after a BOTOX treatment?

There is no required downtime after treatments, so most patients return to work or their normal daily activities right afterward. For optimal results, we recommend that patients do not rub treated areas and avoid strenuous activity for the first 24 hours.

How much does BOTOX cost?

BOTOX treatments cost $12 per unit at our practice ($350 minimum). We are pleased to be members of the Brilliant Distinctions® program, which offers discounts for BOTOX treatments.

Other Questions About BOTOX Treatments

Why should I choose The Plastic Surgery Group for BOTOX treatments?

For the most natural-looking results, it's important that BOTOX is administered by experienced plastic surgeons who know how much to inject and precisely where to place it. At The Plastic Surgery Group, only board-certified plastic surgeons who are experienced in these treatments administer BOTOX.

When will I see results?

BOTOX treatments result in a smoother and improved appearance that appears gradually within 3 to 5 days. The improvements last up to 4 months.

Will my facial expressions look unnatural?

When administered by skilled, experienced professionals, BOTOX treatments won't affect your natural facial expressions or leave you looking frozen or plastic. You will still look natural when you smile or frown, just more youthful and refreshed.
