The cost of treatment varies by each patient and a personal consultation can give you a specific amount.
The average cost per unit is $8.75-$10, the number of units you will need can be determined during your consultation.
Prior to every treatment we will discuss the exact amount of units being injected and will review your cost.
Patients can generally expect to pay a range of $150– $400 depending on the number of units used and areas being treated.
It is important to disclose if you have received toxins in the last 4 months (Dysport, Botox, Xeomin). You are NOT a candidate for this treatment:
Most patients do not experience any side effects. Some of the more serious side effects are rare and generally related to areas and amounts being injected.
These can include droopy eyelids, forehead weakness, trouble raising your eyebrows, difficulty swallowing and urinary incontinence.
For the administration of neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) To help avoid bruising, patients are recommended to discontinue use of blood thinning medication after consulting with your family practitioner.
Patients must consult their primary care physician prior to discontinuing use of any medication.Prior to treatment we will remove makeup from injections site.
Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 4 hours after your treatment.
Do not do strenuous exercise for 4 hours after treatment.
Also avoid facials, saunas for 4 hours after your treatment. This will minimize the risk of raising your blood pressure and therefore minimize the risk of temporary bruising. Feel free to shower and go about most other regular daily activities.
Do not lie down for 4 hours after treatment, this is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas (from your pillow) and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
Results of your treatment can take up to 14 days to take full effect. Please wait until 14 days have passed to assess the results of your Botox and Dysport treatment.
Other considerations that may not make you an ideal candidate include the following:
Neurotoxins work by simply relaxing the muscles underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.
The Allergan’s study wanted to find out just how effective Botox is for the reduction of glabellar line severity. Their study looked at improvement in frown lines, and results were measured by both a third party and the patients themselves.With optimal dosing and a trained cosmetic professional, about 4 out of 5 patients can expect to be satisfied by their treatments by the end of the first month, with results maintained for about 2 months, after which they will gradually diminish.This is why patients need to undergo periodic treatments with Botox—while it is not a cure for wrinkles, it’s still a very effective treatment.
A thin needle to inject tiny amounts of the neuromodulator is injected into your skin or muscle. The number of injections needed depends on many factors, including the extent of the area being treated.
Generally, after the consultation , the procedure generally takes up to 15 minutes. Since there is no downtime, you can do it on your lunchtime and no one would know you have had it done.
Depending on the choice of neuromodulator you may start to notice relaxation of the muscle on day 3, it can however take UP TO 2 weeks for it to take full effect. Patients are asked to wait for the 14 days in order to fully see the results.
It lasts between 3-4 months on average but everyone is different. No it isn’t permanent.
Most patients say the injections feel similar to a little pinch, although everyone is different. We usually hear that patients say, “Is that all?” You may experience a little bleeding at the injection sites.
Most people simply want to look natural, rested, and refreshed, without looking ”done”. friends simply say that they look well rested and great!
This side effect is rare and not permanent. The incidence of these side effects is less than 2% and will last from only a few days to a few weeks. Should you experience this a medical drop for the eye can be ordered.
No. Your face will not get worse if you stop receiving this treatment, you will simply return to where you started. If you have used a neuromodulator as treatment for a number of years and then stop, your muscles learn to relax and therefore, your muscles appear and are more relaxed.
A unit is a very tine measurement of the drug.
Remains local in the muscle area where it was injected. After the injection, the medication is simply metabolized and broken down.
