Facial Filler Injection
Botox (botulinum toxin type A) involves a cosmetic injection procedure in which surgeons carefully inject a low dose of the toxin into an individualâ€™s facial muscles. This procedure targets muscles that, in their natural form, tense to cause wrinkles. Botox causes a temporary relaxation of these injected muscles.
Botox treatments are a diluted form of botulism which paralyzes or weakens the muscles that form wrinkles. Botox injections treat minor imperfections in facial skin, including laughter lines, wrinkles, creases, crowâ€™s feet, and acne scars. The end result is to make the skin appear more youthful.
You may already have a surgeon or you might be looking at financing options first, either way SurgeryLoans.com can help you understand your options.
CostsCosts vary widely depending upon the doctor, where you live, and the extent of the Botox treatment. Beyond the initial treatment, you should factor in the cost of future top-up Botox procedures, around two or three per year.
Board-certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists typically charge more for Botox as they are better equipped and more experienced to perform your procedure. Ask the doctor to provide you with a complete Botox treatment price during the initial consultation that covers all aspects of the Botox procedure; both initial costs and on-going fees.
RecoveryThere is generally no recovery period. You can go directly back to your normal activities.
