Look and Feel Your Best with Michigan's Preferred Board Certified Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon
When you want to diminish facial wrinkles and take years of aging off your face – without surgery – A Botox treatment may be exactly what you need. Botox is a minimally invasive procedure that is designed to reduce or eliminate fine lines and creases like frown lines, forehead furrows, and crow’s feet wrinkles around the eyes, as well as skin bands on your neck.
Botox is a non-surgical injectable that is temporary, but highly effective in softening and smoothing the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and other facial wrinkles. You could see results with just one treatment – and it only takes about ten minutes! With only several tiny injections, you can expect results which lasts about three to six months. Botox treatments and other injectables are far less expensive and extremely less invasive than surgical procedures.
Botox is a brand name for a substance that contains botulinum toxin. The chemical is purified and derived from bacteria. Commonly known as Botox and Dysport, these types of botulinum toxin type A injections block muscular nerve signals. This blockage weakens the muscle, which stops it from contracting. This results in less unwanted facial wrinkles. Botox treatments have been on the market since 1997.

You’re a good candidate for Botox injections when:
A Botox injection treatment typically take less than 15 minutes.
Injection of Botox is a simple and easy procedure, as it’s just a few shots. As simple as it appears, it’s actually both an art and a science that only an experienced healthcare professional should handle. Since a plastic surgeon has the education and training needed to understand facial anatomy, and knows exactly where to place the injections, it’s vital to use a board certified plastic surgeon.
Since there are 43 muscles in your face, it’s important the healthcare professional who performs the procedure understands and concentrates on the optimal areas of your face to get the best results out of your treatment.
A very fine, thin needle is used to inject small amounts of Botox into specific muscles. These specific muscles are chosen carefully by your plastic surgeon, so that the Botox weakens only the muscles which produce wrinkles, while protecting your natural facial expressions.
The amount of injections you’ll require depends on your facial features and the degree of your wrinkles.
There is no anesthesia required for Botox injections. If you are highly sensitive, local anesthetic cream may be applied. Also, there is no recovery time for botulinum toxin injections. You can resume your normal activities immediately following your session.
After your Botox injection treatment, get ready to be “WOW-ed” immediately. Finer lines typically diminish right after treatment, giving you instantly visible results. Others see results within just a few days. For some, it may take up to a week to see the full effect. The visible reductions in lines and wrinkles usually lasts up to three to four months. When the effects of your Botox treatment begins to fade, and more muscle reactions return, so will lines and wrinkles.
If you have really deep wrinkles, consider a supplementary treatment that uses dermal fillers. You could also have a chemical peel or microdermabrasion to achieve a longer-lasting and more youthful appearance.
The average cost in the United States for botulinum toxin injections, like Botox and Dysport, is $371 per area treated, according to a report issued in 2014 by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The cost of botulinum toxin injections will depend on different factors.
