Botox Injections – Frequently Asked Questions
Millions of men and women get Botox injections every year to turn back the clock and reduce or eliminate wrinkles and lines.
At Advanced Laser Spa in Clinton Township, we have helped hundreds of men and women achieve a more youthful appearance with Botox injections. In this article we answers some of our patients most commonly asked questions about Botox.
Does Botox hurt?
Botox is administered with a quick and simple injection – just like any “shot”. When administered by a skilled and experienced medical injector in our Clinton Township med spa, most patients report feeling nothing more than a prick or a pinch.
Just like getting a flu shot – the brief discomfort is well worth the long lasting benefits!
Is there downtime after Botox injections?
Patients can typically return to work or normal daily activities immediately after getting Botox.
Just like getting any type of regular shot from a doctor, some people may experience some initial mild redness – and rarely but occasionally some minimal swelling, or slight bruising. Redness and swelling should go away in an hour or less, and mild bruises, if any, are easily concealed with makeup for a day or two before they disappear.
When will I see the Botox results?
The results of Botox typically take 2 to 4 days before they really start to dramatically reduce wrinkles and lines. Most of our Clinton Township patients report seeing continued improvement in Botox results over a two weeks period until they see maximum benefits.
How long do Botox injections last?
How long Botox treatments last depends to some extent upon each individual, where the Botox was administered and how quickly the patient absorbs it.
In most cases Botox will only very gradually wear off over the next four to six months, or so. Many patients only come in to our Clinton Township Med Spa twice a year for Botox, while other clients prefer to come in 3 times a year to maintain the most youthful results.
How much do Botox injections cost?
The cost of getting Botox will vary depending on the amount you need to obtain optimal results. This is because Botox is priced by the “unit”.
People with deeper wrinkles will require more Botox than those with wrinkles that are just appearing. Additionally, because men’s facial muscles are larger than women’s, a man will generally need more units of Botox. And different areas of the face require more units of Botox than others.
The average person typically only requires 2 to 12 units to treat crow’s feet around each eye. From 8 to 20 units of Botox may be needed to treat horizontal forehead lines. And to treat the so-called “puppet lines “around the mouth it may take up to 25 units for a woman, and even more for a man.
