Westlake Village, CA dermatologist discusses the cost of Botox
Lines and wrinkles on the face can make you unhappy with your appearance. We see patients every day who feel like they can barely recognize the reflection in the mirror. While this can be troubling, there is no reason to fret. Botox injections are an effective, low-cost option for patients in Westlake Village who wish to have years taken off their appearance.
Botox: What it is and how it works
Nearly everyone has heard of Botox, but few truly understand how it works. Botox is an injectable treatment known as a neuromodulator. Composed of botulinum toxin, this medication has revolutionized anti-aging treatments. While the effects of Botox are only temporary, injections can be performed quickly and require zero downtime for patients.
When Botox is injected into the muscles in the forehead, it blocks the signal that causes them to contract. This temporary relaxation of those facial muscles allows the forehead to smooth out and dramatically reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
What to expect
Botox injections require no downtime, although patients should avoid touching the treatment area for several hours. Results can usually be seen within 3-4 days with the full effects showing by the one week mark. Results last anywhere from 3-6 months at which point a maintenance appointment will need to be scheduled if desired.
The cost of Botox
The cost of Botox varies by individual depending on how much needs to be used. We often run special offers on Botox treatments, so patients who are interested are urged to schedule a consultation where we can give them an estimate on the cost of treatment.
If you are tired of looking older than you feel, Botox may be the perfect solution for you. Call our Westlake Village, CA office today 805-379-3376 to set up your consultation appointment.
