Cosmetic Injections in Cedar Park
Cosmetic injections such as Botox / Dysport / Xeomin eliminate wrinkles caused by time and expression.
Ok, you have been to your medical day spa or dermatologist a multiple of times, you’ve seen the women getting Botox…so why not you?
Many people, who have never been introduced to Botox, initially ask the question, “How much does it cost?”
Of course, we all want to know the cost of any investment we are deciding on, however, a basic understanding of how Botox works is essential in deciding about the “how much” of Botox one should receive. Let us talk about a few things while you are deciding if the cost/benefit of Botox is right for you.
Finding a Botox provider
A physician-led team of qualified and licensed providers will guide you through all the aspects of achieving the goal you tell them you would like to achieve. A trained injector has a trained eye in aesthetics and has specialized knowledge of the structures and muscles of the face. Receiving proper evaluation and finding a provider you are comfortable with is of the utmost importance.
What is “a unit of Botox?”
The term “unit” is unique to the use of Botox. 1 unit of Botox cannot be compared with 1 unit of any other product. Each “unit” will be unique to that product. 1 unit of Botox is the amount of product it will take to achieve a specific level of nerve blockage for the nerve responsible for the muscle contraction.
Basically, you will need the correct dosage to get the desired results. Thereby, essentially wasting money by not getting the entire amount necessary to block the nerve causing the muscle to contract. Conversely, it would be more advisable to return for touch ups, rather than receive too much.
What Is A Realistic Budget for Botox?
The safest way to judge the budget for Botox is to see a provider who will charge you by the unit. Pricing per area is sketchy and will leave you with an unknown, as far as charges go. Our expert providers will be able to tell you accurately how many units you will need in each area to achieve the desired result. In addition, it’s a great idea to inquire about future pricing events.
Point of Injection
As mentioned earlier, Botox is not injected into the wrinkle, but rather into the muscle that is causing the wrinkle to exist. Each area requires a certain number of units to get the job done. There is a common recommended amount of Botox for any specific area.
Be your own advocate and do not be afraid to ask questions, because any competent and qualified provider will be pleased to provide you with answers and inform you of the optimal amount of Botox you will need to achieve the results you are looking for.
