Botox® is one of the leading injectable treatments, offering a lasting reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead. At Suite Six Medical Aesthetics, we offer Botox® and other injectable treatments to men and women living in Newburyport, Salem and Boston, MA, as well as those in Hampton, Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH, and the surrounding areas.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a well-known injectable treatment that is made of botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator. When injected into facial muscles, Botox® blocks nerve signals that trigger muscle contraction. As a result, the Botox® treatment can effectively diminish the appearance of wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction. Common treatment areas for Botox® include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and on the outside of the eyes for correcting crow’s feet. In addition to treating wrinkles, Botox® can also be used as a hyperhidrosis treatment by injecting it into sweat glands to prevent excessive sweating.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Boston, MA?
The cost of your Botox® treatment at Suite Six Medical Aesthetics can vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will assess your treatment goals in order to develop an individualized treatment plan. Once we determine the treatment approach that is best for you, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your treatment. We accept traditional payment methods and offer financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
How is Botox® Administered?
Before a Botox® treatment, we use a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and minimize any discomfort that may occur during the injection process. Then, a number of Botox® injections will be made into and around the desired treatment area. The Botox® treatment takes less than 30 minutes to perform, which makes it an ideal treatment for patients with a busy lifestyle or anyone looking for a “lunch break” cosmetic treatment.
Is There Downtime After Botox®?
Although patients may experience minor bruising, redness or sensitivity in the injection site, there is no downtime required after a Botox® treatment. These effects typically fade within a few days, and do not prevent patients from resuming work and other activities immediately after their appointment.
How Long Do the Results from Botox® Last?
The results from Botox® will be visible within a week after treatment, once the formula takes effect in the treated areas. After this point, the results from Botox® will last up to six months. Many patients choose to have regular Botox® treatments to maintain their results year-round.
