Facial Filler Injection

Botox (the trade name of botulinum toxin type A) is a cosmetic injection procedure in which cosmetic surgeons carefully inject a low dose of the toxin into an individual’s facial muscles, causing temporary relaxation of the 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, crow’s feet, and acne scars, making it appear more youthful.

You may already have a surgeon or you might be looking at financing options first, either way can help you understand your options.


Botox injection costs vary widely depending upon the doctor, where you live, and the extent of the Botox treatment. However, you should factor in the cost of future top-up Botox treatments, around two or three per year.

Board-certified plastic surgeons and dermatologists typically charge more for Botox as they are better equipped 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.


There is generally no recovery period. You can go directly back to your normal activities.
