What is Botox Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a non-surgical, injectable treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines.* It can also treat hyperhidrosis, which is the medical term for excessive sweating. If you are familiar with Botox and have received treatments in the past, request your appointment at Abbracci Med Spa in Redondo Beach today.
I’m new to Botox Cosmetic; how does it work?
When you make facial expressions, lines and creases develop. As time passes and your facial muscles repeatedly contract, these temporary creases become permanently etched onto the face. At this point, your facial muscles have become overworked and they have tensed up. Botox works by forcing your facial muscles to relax, which smooths out wrinkles, lines and folds.* Botox Cosmetic is the commercial name for Botulinum Type A, which is a purified toxin. Large amounts of this toxin can block nerve impulses to the muscles, causing a form of paralysis, allowing your facial muscles to fully rest.*
Treatments can address:
- Frown lines*
- Crow’s feet*
- Aging skin*
- Forehead lines*
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
What can I expect during my appointment?
During your initial consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic concerns and identify a treatment plan that will maximize your goals. If Botox Cosmetic is right for you, it will be injected with a fine needle into the targeted areas of your face. A topical anesthetic may be applied to your skin to minimize discomfort during your appointment.* The actual procedure time is less than 10 minutes and you are able to return to normal activities immediately.* For optimal results, it is preferable to postpone exercise or strenuous workouts for 2-4 hours following your treatment.*
What can I expect from the results?
Your results may be noticeable within a day or two, with optimal results appearing after a few weeks.* Your new look will generally last for several months.* Larger doses (units) have a longer duration. Once you have decided it is time to take action against fine lines and wrinkles, here is something to consider. While Botox Cosmetic can be a great solution for wrinkles that appear due to repetitive muscle use, it may not be sufficient for deeper wrinkles that are caused by volume loss. In those cases, we recommend injectable fillers or laser treatments to promote new collagen growth.* Collagen is what helps keep our skin firm and smooth, and is something our bodies lose over time.
How much does Botox cost?
At Abbracci Med Spa, we charge $13 per unit.** Axillary Botox for hyperhidrosis – 100 units (50 units for each armpit) is $999 and works for one year.
