BOTOX® is an FDA-approved, non surgical wrinkle treatment that reduces the dynamic wrinkles created by habitual facial movements and helps to prevent the static wrinkles that are visible when the face is at rest. Although BOTOX® is most commonly used to treat crow’s feet and frown lines in the upper face, the injectable may also be used to reduce lip lines and neck bands.

Why Consider BOTOX®?
Although it has been used for medicinal purposes for several decades, BOTOX® has become a household name in recent years for its cosmetic use as an injectable wrinkle relaxer. People considering BOTOX® usually have one or more of the following concerns:
- Crow’s feet, or wrinkles on the outsides of the eyes that result from smiling or squinting
- Frown lines, or wrinkles between the brows that create an agitated or tired appearance
- Horizontal lines that run across the forehead and contribute to an aged appearance
- Migraines and other disorders associated with nerve pain and spasticity
How Much Does BOTOX® Cost?
The price of BOTOX® injections varies based on how many units you will need. Your total costs will include the cost of the product as well as charges associated with your injector. Although it’s non-surgical, getting BOTOX® is considered a medical procedure, which is why it’s important to receive this injectable from a professional medical spa.
At Basu Plastic Surgery, we offer frequent special promotions for a variety of cosmetic treatments. We also offer plastic surgery financing options so you can make your procedures as affordable as possible.
Your BOTOX® Options
Once you’ve decided to get BOTOX® treatments, you’ll have several options to consider.
The primary option is where you would like your BOTOX® applied. The majority of people have BOTOX® to treat wrinkles in the upper face, specifically beside the eyes, between the eyebrows and in the forehead. However, if you have another area of concern, talk to your injector about using BOTOX® in another location, such as to minimize the appearance of neck bands.
Many people choose to combine their BOTOX® treatments with dermal fillers for a more comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation.
Your BOTOX® Treatment
During your consultation, our certified injector can make recommendations for the best approach to your facial rejuvenation concerns. Before your BOTOX® treatment, we will cleanse your face and administer a local anesthesia. We will then inject the correct amount of BOTOX® (measured in units) to help you achieve the most effective and natural-looking results.
BOTOX® injections only take about 15 to 20 minutes, making it a popular “lunchtime” treatment. You may return to your normal schedule as soon as you leave your appointment.
Your Recovery & Results
After getting BOTOX® injections, temporary redness at injection sites, mild bruising and swelling may occur. Makeup can easily camouflage these side effects, which can take a few days to 1 week to resolve.
Within 1 to 2 weeks of your treatment, you should be able to notice your BOTOX® results. BOTOX® typically lasts about 3 to 4 months. Many people schedule regular BOTOX® appointments to maintain their results.
