BOTOX® Frequently Asked Questions

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections were approved by the FDA for the treatment of wrinkles in 2002. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a diluted form of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a bacterium that causes botulism (a type of food poisoning).

What Are the Most Common Uses of BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can be used to treat wrinkles of the face (forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow's feet). Before BOTOX® Cosmetic was used for cosmetic purposes, it was FDA approved for alternative treatments including migraine headaches, low back pain, excessive sweating, muscle spasticity, neck spasms, facial spasms, and vocal cord spasms.

How do BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections block nerve impulses to the muscles, causing the muscles to relax. Facial wrinkles disappear almost instantly, creating a more youthful appearance.

Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?

Patients who are not candidates for extensive facial cosmetic surgery procedures and those who show the early signs of aging are good candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.

Patients who are not good candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic include pregnant women, nursing mothers, those who are allergic to Botulinum Toxin Type A, those who have a history of botulism poisoning, and patients taking other medications that may increase the risk of bruising and bleeding.

What Happens during BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?

The doctor can do the entire procedure right in the office, making a series of injections directly into the facial muscles. The BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure is fast and easy, usually painless, and you can walk out of the office and continue with your day.

What Results Can I Expect following BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?
You should notice a pronounced improvement within three to five days of receiving the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. The results are not permanent, and should last for about three to six months.

Back to top

What are the Risks of BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections?
Risks of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections include: headache, nausea, an allergic reaction, no improvement after treatment, drooping of the eyebrow or eyelid, and numbness, tingling, bruising, or swelling in the injection area.

Is BOTOX® Treatment for Men?

While the majority of BOTOX® patients are women, many men are seeking the treatment as well. BOTOX® injections for men are a very subtle way to improve the appearance of the face, and as the procedure takes so little time, a busy man can conceivably have the procedure done on his lunch break and head right back to the office.

What is the Cost of BOTOX® Injections?

The average BOTOX® treatment price ranges from $350 to $500 for each area injected. For those on a budget, convenient BOTOX® special offers can make treatment easily affordable. Call our office at (954) 200-6001 for special offers.

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic – Average Cost?

About $15 to $20 per unit. The cost of BOTOX® injections will depend on other factors as well. Like how many injections you are receiving may all come into play when determining your final BOTOX® treatment cost.

What is BOTOX® Injection Cost Breakdown?
Most practices have a flat cost for each injection of BOTOX® Cosmetic, though some will break it down by “units” used per treatment. Flat rates are usually somewhere between $300 and $1000, while per-unit rates are usually around $15-20 per unit. Each vial contains 100 units, or enough for about 4 or 5 treatments, the vial must be used within a few hours of opening, so if the entire vial is not used, the physician will often have to throw the rest out.

How to go about BOTOX® Cosmetic parties?

Recently, there has been an emerging trend of “BOTOX® Cosmetic parties,” in which several people gather at a physician’s house or another location to have BOTOX® Cosmetic injections at a lower cost. While prices for treatment may be somewhat lower at a BOTOX® Cosmetic party than for treatment administered during a normal office visit, the situation may not be ideal. The American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery have both issued warnings against such “parties,” as they have reservations about the ability of the physician to provide a safe and sterile environment outside of their office.
