Botox® Procedure Details

What Is Botox®?

But what is Botox® and what is Botox® used for exactly? Onabotulinum toxin A, or Botox®, is an FDA-approved injection used to block signals from the nerves to the muscles that are responsible for facial movement. This serves to stop the muscle from contracting, causing it to relax. With the muscles relaxed, existing wrinkles are smoothed out, giving your face a fresher, more youthful appearance. Botox® can also prevent further fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Botox® is ideal to use for fine lines and sensitive areas that require subtle, not stiff, smoothing.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injection used to treat moderate to severe fine lines on the face. Metropolitan Skin Clinic uses the best-researched Botox injection available, supplied by Allergan Aesthetics, the most reliable manufacturer and marketer of injectables.

Why use Botox®?

Botox® is an effective and increasingly popular way to eliminate wrinkles caused by aging and prevent more from forming. Botox® is not only used for cosmetic purposes; many medical professionals are now safely using Botox® to treat a number of issues including the painful symptoms of TMJ and the embarrassing hassle of overly sweaty underarms.

What Does Botox® Treat?

Frown Lines (11 Lines)

We can use Botox® to smooth the lines that form between your eyes, otherwise known as 11 lines.

Crow's Feet

Injectable Botox® smooths out the wrinkles at the corners of your eyes that are most noticeable when smiling or squinting.

Gummy Smile (Lip Flip)

We can inject Botox® to flip up the upper lip to make the lip appear fuller and show less of the gums when smiling.

Forehead Lines

An injection of Botox® into the forehead can improve the appearance of horizontal forehead lines.

Masseters/TMJ

We can use Botox® to relax the muscles in your jaw (masseter) to relieve symptoms of TMJ and lessen the pain caused by jaw tension and clenching.

Sweaty Underarms

Botox® treatment can be used to reduce excessive sweating in the armpits, an embarrassing condition known as hyperhidrosis.

Downturned Nose

We can also inject Botox® into the nose to eliminate a downturned nose tip.

Downturned Smile

If your smile turns down at the corners, this treatment can help you turn the frown upside down!

How many treatments will I need?

Usually the frequency of visit is 3-4 times/year.
After injection, you should begin to see a difference within a couple of days. However, don’t expect to see the full results at that time, it can take up to 2 weeks for it to fully kick in. Make sure to wait to get any touch-up treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox®

Does Botox® have any side effects?

It’s possible that Botox® can have some rare and short-term side effects. Headaches can happen after the injections, as well as some minor bruising and swelling and tiny red dots near the injection site. These symptoms are temporary and nothing to worry about, they will gradually disappear with time.

How long does Botox® last?

Botox® is not permanent. It can last between three and four months after the treatment. Botox® takes a full 2 weeks to come to full effect. Your muscles are at their most relaxed state at weeks 2-6. At 8-10 weeks, movement slowly begins to return. By weeks 12-14, you will be due for another treatment.

Consistent treatments every 3-4 months keeps you looking fresh and ensure optimal softening of fine lines and wrinkles while preventing the onset of deep folds over time.

How much does Botox® cost?

We currently charge $15 per unit, however, the number of units required varies depending on the person, the purpose of the Botox injections, and the area it is being injected into. At Metropolitan Skin Clinic, our repeat customers who book consistently (within 3-4 months) pay our loyalty pricing of $12 per unit.

How long before Botox® kicks in?

After injection, you should begin to see a softening of lines within a couple of days. However, don’t expect to see the full results at that time, it takes 14 days for it to fully kick in. Make sure to keep your follow-up appointment so that your injector can assess how well your treatment took and correct any areas that may need more attention. Only then will you know if you need to get any touch-up treatments.
