BOTOX COSMETIC® is a purified protein injected into the muscles, giving your face a more refreshed appearance. It enhances your unique look without sacrificing the natural expressions in your face. You will start to see results in as little as 24 hours that can last 4 months.
Each client receives a complimentary consultation prior to Botox treatment. During your consultation, we can assess your needs and fully educate you about treatment and pricing for your particular concerns. We use Unit Pricing to determine the cost of your Botox procedure which allows you to pay only for what you need, rather than charging a flat rate for an area. Our price per unit is $9. Because each client's needs are unique, the required number of units of Botox to achieve desired results will vary.
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT
To decrease the chance of bruising at the injection site, please avoid all NON-PRESCRIPTION blood thinning medications and supplements for 1 week prior to your Botox® appointment. Avoid taking Aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) such as such as Ibuprofen, Motrin and Aleve. In addition, very high doses of some Vitamins and supplements can thin your blood and increase the chance of bruising. Please notify Dr. Bowdridge if you are taking Warfarin, Coumadin, Plavix, or any other blood thinners for a medical condition.
AFTER YOUR TREATMENT
Avoid taking Advil, Tylenol or Vitamin E for 24 hours to reduce the risk of bruising.
Do not lie down for 4 hours after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of pressure on the treated areas and to avoid the risk of having the area rubbed accidentally.
If you need to apply make-up within 4 hours after your treatment, only use a gentle touch to avoid rubbing the treated area.
Results of your treatment may take 14 days to take full effect. Please wait until the 14 days has passed to assess if you are pleased with your result. At this time, we ask that you return for a follow up appointment.
BOTOX COSMETIC® is a temporary procedure and at first, you may find that your treatment results will last approximately 3-4 months. If you maintain your treatment appointments with the frequency recommended by your doctor, the duration of each treatment may begin to last longer than 4 months.
