The cost of the procedure typically starts at around $300 per treatment area (at $3.5 per unit for Dysport).
The procedure itself typically takes around 5-10 minutes to administer. Recovery time is minimal, with most patients returning to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Common side effects include mild pain, swelling, and redness at the injection site, as well as temporary muscle weakness and sensation of pressure in the treated area.
Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is commonly used for cosmetic purposes to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by temporarily paralyzing the muscles. The principles of action of botulinum toxin involve blocking the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, from nerve endings. This leads to muscle relaxation and a temporary reduction in muscle movement.
Neuromodulators are injectable medications, which temporarily block communication between skeletal muscles and nerve fibers, leading to relaxation of treated muscle fiber. This leads to improvement of facial lines and wrinkles and smoothing of the skin. Healthcare professionals also use neuromodulators to treat excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, chronic migraine headaches, and TMJ pain.
Botulinum toxin type A is approved by FDA and most effective to treat facial wrinkles (rhytids). There are several different Botulinum neurotoxin type A products available on US market. Desert Bloom skin care offers Botox by Allergan Cosmetics, Xeomin by Mertz and Dysport by Galderma.
The effects of botulinum toxin product typically take 2-7 days to become apparent. The full effects are usually visible within 7-14 days after the injection. Some individuals may see the results sooner, while others may take a bit longer to see the full effects.
The duration of botulinum toxin injections varies from person to person, but the effects typically last 3-4 months. After this time, the muscle movement returns, and the wrinkles and fine lines start to reappear. To maintain the results, we recommend collagen boosting treatments, such as microneedling or PDO threads to support skin firmness and elasticity to prevent formation of wrinkles, once neurotoxin wears off.To maintain muscle relaxation, repeat treatments with neurotoxin every 3 months are typically necessary. Some factors that can affect the longevity of Botox include the individual’s metabolism, the dose of the toxin used, the location and size of the muscle being treated, and the person’s age and lifestyle.
If you’re interested in getting a Botox treatment, here’s what you can expect at Desert Bloom Skin Care Center with Dr. Natalya Borakowski:
Consultation: During your first visit, we’ll have a consultation to discuss your goals and expectations. We’ll evaluate your skin and give you my professional opinion on the best course of action.
Injection: Using a very fine needle, Dr. Natalya Borakowski injects small amounts of botulinum neurotoxin into the targeted muscles. She will determine the number of toxin injections based on the size and number of the muscles being treated.
Wait time: After administering the injections, the we will ask you to wait for about 15 minutes to ensure there are no adverse reactions.
Post-procedure care: We’ll give you instructions on how to care for the treated area and what to expect in the coming days. It’s important to avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area and to keep your head elevated to reduce swelling.
At Desert Bloom Skin Care Center, we aim to make your Botox treatment as smooth and comfortable as possible. Our top priority is yours and our goal is to help you achieve the look you want.
Please keep in mind, we are very conservative with the amount of neurotoxin used, especially if this is your first time using this medication. We always recommend to inject less at your first visit and come back for a follow up 14 days later, to add more units of botox if needed. Botulinum toxin starts to take effect in 3 days, most effect is seen in 2 weeks and it starts to wear off in 3 months. We highly recommend taking advantage of collagen boosting treatments during these three months to prolong wrinkle and line reducing effects of the toxin.
