BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is an injectable wrinkle treatment that smooths away dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements. For this reason, it’s best suited for treating:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar lines (vertical lines that form between the eyebrows – also called the “11s”)
  • Forehead lines

BOTOX® was approved for cosmetic use in 2002, but it’s been trusted in the medical community for much longer than that. Originally developed to treat conditions caused by overactive muscles (such as a twitching eyelid), BOTOX was soon found to be effective on some of the most stubborn wrinkles and crinkles.

How much do BOTOX® injections cost?

BOTOX® is priced by the unit, and each person and each wrinkle requires a customized number of units. Dr. Negbenebor will evaluate your concerns and needs at your consultation, and you’ll be given a price quote at that time.

Are there any special precautions I need to take on the day of my BOTOX® treatment?

Prior to your treatment, it’s prudent to avoid alcohol, aspirin, and other products that can thin your blood. These can increase your risk of unnecessary bleeding and bruising. After your treatment, you can return to your normal activities as soon as you like. For the remainder of the day, Dr. Negbenebor advises patients to avoid manipulating the treatment areas and any activities that require bending or stooping. These precautions allow the product to distribute itself evenly for optimal results.

Are there any side effects associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is very well tolerated, and millions of people around the world undergo the treatment every year with no adverse effects. The most common side effects are typically limited to injection site reactions, and they can include:

  • Bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Itchiness
  • Redness

Keep in mind that these effects are mild and typically resolve on their own within a day or two.

How long does BOTOX® last?

BOTOX® treatments typically last between 3-4 months. Therefore, treatments are required every 3-4 months to maintain results.
