Benefits of Botox Cosmetic & Treatment Areas
Botox Cosmetic is one of the most popular neuromodulators in the world. As a neuromodulator, Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves in the treatment area which prevents muscles in that area from contracting or moving. Simply put, this relaxes the muscles in the treatment area, which helps decrease the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is commonly used for cosmetic treatments including facial wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic is one of the most trusted injectables for handling signs of aging around the face. In fact, many patients even consider preventative Botox. By getting Botox Cosmetic injections right as lines and wrinkles begin to appear, and combining these treatments with other skincare treatments you can delay the signs of aging. If you are interested in getting Botox, we would be happy to set up a consultation at either our Boston or Newburyport office to discuss Botox or other injectables and skincare treatments.
What Do I Need To Know Before I Get Botox Cosmetic?
Before your Botox Cosmetic treatment we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our master injectors to go over your options and goals for treatment. Before a Botox Cosmetic appointment it is important to avoid taking any blood thinners and to avoid alcohol. Additionally, any makeup in the treatment area will need to be removed before the injection.
How Much Does Botox Cosmetic Cost In Boston?
Botox Cosmetic is frequently priced per unit. Different treatments will require more or less units based on the treatment area. For example you might need anywhere between 10 and 50 units to address forehead lines. During the consultation process, our team will provide recommendations based on our goals. We have a full pricing page for many of our services including our injectables. We also offer a great membership plan that includes discounts on some of our most popular treatments. And of course, you can always check out our specials page to see any active specials we are running at our practices.
The Botox Timeline
How Long Does It Take To Get Botox: Cosmetic Botox injections can take around 15 minutes. However, your entire treatment might be a little bit longer especially if you are having a consultation first. That said, injectables is typically a very quick appointment.
How Long Does It Take Botox To Work: Unlike fillers, the effects from Botox Cosmetic are not instant. Because Botox works by decreasing muscle movement temporarily, you see the results after the fact. Botox Cosmetic results tend to appear within 1-4 days after your initial treatment. However, full results tend to show up around 10 to 14 days.
How Long Does Botox Last: Typically patients see continued results for 3-4 months after their treatment. Although this can vary from patient to patient.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox Cosmetic
Botox is made of Botulinum toxin. It is a neuromodulator or neurotoxin that works by deactivating the nerves that cause muscles to contract in the treated area. This has the effect of decreasing muscle movement for a short period of time which leads to a decrease in wrinkles lines.
Many patients get both. But it really depends on your goals. Botox Cosmetic is recommended for fine lines and wrinkles. Fillers often work by stimulating the production of collagen and also adding volume to areas of the face Combined you can promote healthier skin, decrease the visibility of lines and wrinkles, and also add volume to the lips and cheeks.
Unfortunately no. While there are ways to reverse fillers immediately after getting them, Botox is irreversible. However, the results of Botox Cosmetic tend to fade over time.
Botox takes up to two weeks to work fully. So if you are planning to get injectables before an upcoming event like a wedding, graduation, or other occasion it is recommended to plan at least a month out. This gives you time for a consultation, treatment, recovery, and for your full results to appear.
