Through a simple injection, BOTOX® Cosmetic diminishes furrow lines around the eyes and forehead that result from stress or genetics, giving you a softer, younger, more radiant look. What is BOTOX® Cosmetic? Botox cost $13.00 per unit. Average patient spends between $350 -$600 per treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treats facial wrinkles in the forehead, between the eyes, and in the “crows feet” areas (upper third of the face). The substance is botulinum toxin and it works by weakening the muscles of facial expressions. It also works well with dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Perlane®, JUVÉDERM® XC and Radiesse® which erase lines and folds by adding volume beneath the skin’s surface. Injection of this material into the small muscles between the brows, in the forehead, and at the corner of the eyes cause those specific muscles to halt their function (be paralyzed), thereby improving the appearance of the wrinkles. This paralysis is temporary, and re-injection is necessary within 3 to 6 months.
