Botox Cosmetic Philadelphia
Treatment of frown lines with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections has become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country. A quick session of several targeted injections can greatly reduce the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines and brow furrows.
The active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic is a naturally-occurring protein that acts as a temporary muscle relaxant. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections relax the overactive muscles that cause lines and furrows to appear. The results last for four to six months, at which point treatment can be repeated to maintain the effect. Dr. Chapin is proud to serve BOTOX® patients from throughout the greater Philadelphia area, including Doylestown, Montgomery County and Bucks County.
Am I a Candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
You may be a suitable candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment if you have recently started to notice:
- Frown lines
- Crows’ feet
- Forehead furrows
- Skin bands
If you have moderate to severe signs of aging, you may be better suited to a more comprehensive surgical procedure such as a facelift or brow lift. Dr. Chapin can recommend your best option at a consultation, during which he will examine your facial features and discuss your goals.
What Happens During BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment?
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is minimally invasive and usually takes between 15 and 30 minutes. The treatment area will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic or ice packs may be applied to numb the area if needed. The product is injected with a very fine needle into the facial muscle(s) that causes the wrinkle or furrow. The injections will be made very strategically and precisely to prevent over-correction, which can cause a “surprised” or”frozen” appearance. Treatment should not be painful, and will be over very quickly.
The number of injections that you will need depends on several factors, including the severity of your wrinkles, the treatment area and your facial features. In general, areas like deep brow furrows require more injections than crow’s feet.
What Does the Recovery Period for BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Involve?
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment does not require any downtime. After treatment, you can immediately return to work or your normal routine. However, you should be careful to avoid putting any pressure on the treated area for the first 12 hours after treatment, as this could cause the product to migrate.
How Much Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Cost?
Facial rejuvenation with BOTOX® Cosmetic injections costs between $275 and $600, depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of injections required to produce the desired results.
