Forever Young is pleased to offer authentic Botox injectables. Botox has been clinically proven to eliminate frown lines. It works by inhibiting the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that causes muscle contractions. Improvements can be visible a week after the injection and can last up to four months. Botox can also be used to treat chronic migraines in adults. Botox services are $10/unit for the first 20 units and $9/unit afterwards.
How does the treatment work?
The doctor uses a syringe to inject areas of the face with Botox. The Botox prevents the release of acetylcholine, reducing muscle contractions which cause frown lines and wrinkles.
What areas of the face can be treated?
The most popular areas for Botox injections are the crow’s feet and forehead.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, patients get 3-4 treatments of Botox over the course of the year. These treatments are spaced 12-16 weeks apart. However, this varies from patient to patient depending on the severity of the wrinkles and folds.
What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area. If your skin is sensitive, the doctor will apply a topical numbing cream. The doctor will then inject the areas to be treated with a syringe containing Botox. The procedure typically lasts up to 15 minutes.
Will it be uncomfortable?
The injection might feel like a pinch. However, if your skin is sensitive, the doctor will apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.
What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
Results may vary depending on your condition, number of treatments, and the area being treated, though the most typical observation is redness in the treated areas. This will resolve itself within a few hours.
How long will it take to recover?
Botox treatments carry no downtime. You can resume regular activities after the treatment.
What aftercare do I need?
The doctor will provide any aftercare instructions, if necessary.
When should I expect results?
Patients report seeing improvements within 48 hours. However, the most noticeable improvements are visible after the first week.
