What Is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment that is delivered using a thin, fine-gauge needle. Botox® restores and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles along with other visible signs of aging. Botox® was first approved for medical reasons in 1979 and, then, for cosmetic reasons in 2001. There are almost 40 years of experience with Botox®.
How does Botox® work?
Botox® is short for botulinum toxin type A, an agent that temporarily relaxes and immobilizes facial muscles, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful looking skin. It works by blocking the nerve receptors on muscles. Botox® is injected directly into various strategic areas of the skin using a fine-gauge needle to target the wrinkles, lines, and creases in that area. A single treatment lasts about three to four months, and patients return for follow-up injections. Over time, the facial muscles treated become naturally relaxed, and the number of follow-up treatments will often be reduced.
What conditions does Botox® treat?
Botox® is great for eliminating wrinkles, lines, and creases caused by repetitive gestures and facial expressions. By temporarily relaxing these muscles, the gestures are repeated less often, diminishing the cause of these lines and wrinkles. Botox® has consistently provided effective treatment for the following skin conditions, as well as conditions not related to the skin, as follows:
- Wrinkles, lines, and creases on the face
- Skin that has lost firmness and elasticity
- Over-active bladder
- Excessive underarm perspiration
Who should consider Botox® treatment?
Any adult in good health who desires a more youthful appearance may be a good candidate for Botox® treatment, assuming there are no contraindicated conditions. Botox® is recommended as a preventative treatment for younger skin to help protect against wrinkles and lines in the future. Some of our patients start in their 20s, and some of our patients continue Botox® treatment in their 80s! If you want to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and fine lines from your face, Botox® may be the ideal solution for you.
How should I prepare for Botox®?
At your consultation, our team will evaluate your medical history to make sure you are a good candidate for Botox® treatment.
How much does Botox® cost In Central Florida?
The price of Botox® varies according to the number of injections and treatments that you require. Cost estimates range from $200 to $800. Since Botox® is an elective cosmetic procedure, health insurance will not cover it. For our patients’ convenience and to help manage costs not covered by insurance, our office accepts various payment methods.
