Injections and Treatment

 

What is Botox?

Botox is a medical treatment where a medical professional injects a small amount of a protein into the skin, causing the muscles to temporarily relax and not be able to fully contract. But don’t worry! The Botox simply sends a signal to the central nervous system which says, “don’t contract these muscles!”

That signal tells the muscles at or around the injection site to relax and soften, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Although Botox is primarily used for cosmetic purposes, Botox has been prescribed for a number of medical conditions, including migraines and bladder spasms.

Is Botox Just for Wrinkles and Lines?

Not at all! Although Botox is primarily used for cosmetic purposes, Botox has been known to be prescribed for a number of medical conditions including migraines, muscle spasms, excessive sweating, and eczema. The ability to inject muscle relaxant to such a specific area of the body has proven extremely effective in a number of muscle conditions.

Botox promotes blood flow as well as reduces tension in the body, two factors which have been proven to improve quality of life as well as promote longevity.

How Long Does Botox Last?

Depending on when and where you get your treatment, Botox can last anywhere from 3-6 months. As the drug begins to wear off, function in the muscle begins to return and once the muscles re-contract, those lines and wrinkles re-appear.

Is Botox Just for Women?

No way! As a matter of fact, a growing number of men are seeking Botox treatments. The Botox procedure is exactly the same, although occasionally men will require a slightly higher dosage of the protein to accommodate their increased muscle mass.

Cosmetically, men tend to focus on reducing the furrow of their brow and the crows feet at the outer corners of their eyes.

How much does Botox cost?

The cost of Botox can vary pretty drastically, depending on where you’re getting your procedure done. Botox is $12.50 per unit and typically it requires about 18-20 units per “area” meaning, frown lines (glabella), forehead (frontalis) or crows feet.

Is Botox Right For Me?

There isn’t any one person Botox is “right for.” Anyone can seek Botox treatment if they feel it is right for them. It’s all about helping you love the skin you’re in! That said, there are some people who may want to take extra precautions before committing to Botox treatment. Such people include:

  • Any woman who is either pregnant or nursing
  • Any person with a neurological disease
