Things to consider when requesting a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment:
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the safest and most predictable aesthetic procedures you can have done. It works quickly, can have dramatic effects and lasts about three months. During your consultation at Well Medical Arts we will review contraindications, such as ALS or other neuromuscular diseases that prevent you from being a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic. Bruising can occur at the injection site. Be sure to check out the other Well Medical Arts aesthetic procedures and products while you’re here. Many patients request information on CoolSculpting fat removal and Intense Pulsed Light skin rejuvenation while they’re getting their Botox.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
As we age the repetitive contraction of muscles around the eyes, between the eyes and in the forehead create wrinkles and folds in the skin that are not present when we’re younger. The combination of this constant folding of the skin with other environmental damage, such as sun damage and free radical damage (e.g. smoking) results in crow’s feet, smokers lips and other cosmetic concerns.
BOTOX® Cosmetic interrupts the chemical communication between the nerves and the muscles in the treatment site. Your body adjusts to this change in about three months and the muscle once again contracts.

Men usually have stronger, more developed muscles and can expect to need 50-100% more BOTOX® Cosmetic than a female. Generally you can budget between $300 and $650 for your first treatment. On subsequent procedures you can use the efficacy of the first treatment to judge if you’d like to increase or decrease the amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic you receive.
