What is Botox®?
Botox®, a prescription medicine, was originally approved by the FDA in 1989, for treating eye muscle issues. The FDA approved Botox® Cosmetic in 2002 as an effective treatment for facial wrinkles. Today, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons rates Botox® as the most popular, non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
Benefits of Botox®
Botox® provides natural-looking rejuvenation with a safe, convenient procedure, and no downtime.
How Does Botox® Work?
The lines and wrinkles that develop in the treatment areas of Botox® Cosmetic are caused by regular contractions of the facial muscles. Botox® Cosmetic contains a specific neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes these facial muscles.
You may be a candidate for Botox® Cosmetic if any of the following apply to you.
- I have moderate to severe facial wrinkles.
- My skin does not seem to bounce back, the way it once did.
- I have frown lines.
- My forehead has creases.
- I have “crow’s feet.”
- I see smile lines.
- I see the number “11” between my eyebrows.
- My general health is good.
- I want to find a preventative means to soften fine lines and wrinkles.
- I have tried searching the internet, using the words: anti-aging.
What to Expect from Botox®
Botox® Cosmetic is injected by a board-certified dermatologist into certain facial muscles to improve and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The visible improvement is a result of Botox® effectively reducing muscle movement; a relaxed muscle is a smooth muscle.
Our patients describe their Botox® injections as a quick, mild prickling sensation. Our staff will help make your Botox® Cosmetic visit very pleasant. The treatment takes about 10 minutes.
The results last four to six months, and we recommend follow-up treatments at around four months.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Birmingham?
The cost of your Botox® Cosmetic treatment is based upon the number of injections. After your consultation, we can provide this information more accurately. Our payment options include cash, checks, major credit cards and convenient financing options.
