After a certain age, no amount of over-the-counter skin treatments will prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming. Signs of aging appear as smile lines, crow’s feet, and creases along the forehead. Fortunately, there’s a quick and easy way to diminish these tell-tale signs.

Botox®️ injections, the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the United States, delivers the smoothing results you’re looking for, softening fine lines and wrinkles and restoring a more youthful appearance.

What is Botox®️?

The natural aging process causes fine lines and wrinkles to appear; however, other things can speed up the aging process and make lines and wrinkles more pronounced, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Sun exposure
  • Repeated facial expressions

In particular, repeated facial expressions, such as smiling and frowning, cause grooves to develop beneath the skin’s surface. And with age, the skin loses its elasticity. Meaning, your skin has a harder time bouncing back from repeated facial expressions. Consequently, these are the areas where wrinkles form.

Botox®️, a brand name for a substance called Botulinum Toxin, is an injectable neurotoxin treatment used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

Botox®️ works by blocking the signals that run from the nerves to the muscles. With repeated facial expressions, Botox®️ effects prevent muscles from contracting. These effects allow wrinkles and fine lines to relax and smooth out.

How Much Does Botox®️ Cost?

Botox®️ costs are priced by unit, with $12 to $14 being the average cost of a unit. This means the cost per procedure will depend on how many units are needed to cover the target areas being treated.

What’s Involved with a Botox®️ Treatment?

A Botox®️ procedure takes only a few minutes to complete in a few simple steps:

  • The clinician marks the areas target for treatment
  • A saline-diluted form of Botulinum toxin powder is injected into the neuromuscular tissue
  • The most you’ll feel is a slight prick, so no anesthesia is used
  • Expect to see a more youthful appearance within 24 to 72 hours

At Slimming Solutions Med Spa, our Master Injector, Joi Tydings, will administer or oversee your Botox®️ procedure. As a registered nurse and esthetician, Joi Tydings has ample experience in the field.

How Long Do Botox®️ Effects last?

How long Botox®️ Effects last can vary depending on your skin’s physiological makeup and facial structure, all of which will be considered during the treatment planning process. 

According to Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox®️, you can expect to see results that last for three months or longer.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®️?

You’re likely a good candidate for Botox®️ if:

  • You struggle with fine lines and wrinkles
  • You want to prevent wrinkles from forming
  • You’re not ready to try more invasive procedures

Joi and David are an absolute delight! They are very knowledgeable and helpful. You can reach out to them anytime! You’re not treated like a client at a big med spa but more like family. My brown age spots have almost diminished and my face never looked better!
