Facial muscles work to help express the way we feel. Factors like aging, gravity, and sun damage combined with years of facial expressions can cause wrinkles and lines in the upper face. Fortunately, BOTOX® Cosmetic can treat the visible signs of aging caused by the repeated muscle contractions used for facial movements. This non-surgical injectable can help both men and women achieve smooth and beautiful skin.

What Will My BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Be Like?

  • Consultation

    Dr. Pearce will examine the condition of your facial skin to determine the best placement for your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. He will go over any questions or concerns you may have regarding your treatment to ensure you understand everything and receive the results you desire.

  • Process

    During your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, a fine needle will be used to inject the product. Most patients do not require any numbing medication, as they describe the discomfort level as a 1 or 2 out of 10. However, a topical anesthetic cream can be applied to the treated area to ease any pain or discomfort if needed. The treatment can take about 7 days to take effect when using BOTOX® Cosmetic or about 3 to 4 days if using Dysport®.

  • Alternative Treatments

    Dysport® is another form of BOTOX® that has a different formulation and can take effect a few days sooner than BOTOX®. Dysport® may be right for you if you no longer or never had good results using BOTOX®.

CONCERNS

Recovery

Because BOTOX® Cosmetic is performed in one sitting, there is little to no downtime. You can return to your normal activities immediately following your treatment. Some swelling, bruising, and redness will occur but should resolve after a few days.

Results

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will leave your skin looking young and smooth for up to four months. BOTOX® causes the treated muscles to relax by blocking nerve stimulation and results in smooth, relaxed skin. The results are temporary, and most patients require multiple or repeat sessions spread out over a span of six months to achieve their desired results.

Scars

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections do not leave any scars behind because the treatment does not require any incisions.

Cost

The cost of your BOTOX® Cosmetic will vary based on the amount of correction needed. Treatments typically range from $240 for the forehead region alone to $600 for the entire upper face. However, treatments can be customized to fit each patient.
