Common questions and concerns
Is it safe? Yes, BOTOX® has been used for cosmetic purposes for over 20 years, and is FDA-approved for the purpose of treating moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines. There are many off-label uses for BOTOX® that are safe, which you may also explore and ask about during your consultation.
Will it be noticeable? No. With proper technique applied by certified injectors BOTOX® creates a very subtle effect and will not cause you to look abnormal. You will notice a decrease in the lines on the treated area, and movement of the muscles will be more restricted (in order to achieve this result), but you will not look as if you have had anything specifically altered on your face.
How much does it cost? BOTOX® treatments are priced per unit, which is the industry-standard for fair and honest pricing. During your consultation we will discuss your desired results and make a recommendation for the number of units you will need (with pricing) before the treatment is performed. You may also suggest a comfortable budget for your treatment, and we will be able to recommend what areas may be treated within those parameters.
