Botox & Dysport

FOREHEAD LINES

$135+ ESTIMATE

No wrinkles are the best wrinkles! Botox prevents wrinkles and fine lines from causing a permanent crease on your face. Botox Cosmetic is a non-surgical, non-permanent medication injected into the facial muscles to relax them and create a smooth appearance of the skin. Studies show Botox can be started in your mid-20s for preventative measures and used every 3-6 months as needed. Botox takes up to 2 weeks to show max effect and lasts for 3-4 months. No downtime. The Forehead area usually costs between $135-240. You can make follow-up appointments after two weeks for more coverage.

FROWN LINES

$145+

Botox to the frown lines, 11s, glabella region can give you a tension-free, more relaxed look. Botox Cosmetic can be injected into this area to relax the muscles and decrease wrinkle appearance from everyday facial expressions. Decrease the lines that are slowly setting in. It’s easier to prevent than to correct.

LIP FLIP/GUMMY SMILE

$100

Botox is injected into a part of your upper lip to help it look fuller. The injection relaxes the muscles around your lip and causes part of your upper lip to” flip upward and outward. You will have a fuller appearance and less of a gummy smile.

BOTOX TO MASSETERS

Our Nurse Injectors offer Botox to Masseters for jaw pain. It may take up to 2 weeks to notice the full effect. Please note, as with any procedure, not everyone is a perfect candidate.

TRAP TOX

Botox blocks a neurotransmitter compound known as acetylcholine when injected into the back or neck muscles. Botox injections render muscles inactive and relieve pain in the Trapezius or the diamond-shaped muscle group forming the neck and upper back base. Poor posture, emotional distress, falls, bad sleeping positions or whiplash injuries can cause pain in the neck and back muscles.
