Botox® is one of the leading injectable treatments. By relaxing facial muscles, this treatment can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and prevent them from worsening. 7 Seas Medical Spa is proud to offer this treatment to men and women living in Augusta, Columbia, Evans, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is an injectable treatment composed of botulinum toxin, a neuromodulator that blocks nerve signals to the brain. When injected into the facial muscles, Botox® blocks nerve signals that cause them to contract. As a result, the muscles remain relaxed, reducing the appearance of wrinkles in the area. Botox® is often used to achieve a more youthful appearance, but it can also be used as a preventative measure to prevent wrinkles from forming or worsening. Botox® can be used to address the following wrinkles:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Bunny lines
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The cost of your Botox® treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is the Botox® Treatment Like?
The Botox® treatment is administered via injection into and around the desired treatment area. This is a tolerable process, but we offer a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. After the injections are performed, your treatment is complete. A single Botox® session takes less than 30 minutes, which is why it and other injectable treatments have earned the title of “lunchtime” treatments.
What Can I Expect After My Botox® Treatment?
After your Botox® treatment, you may notice some swelling, redness, or sensitivity in the treatment area. These effects are common, and usually fade within a day or two. The Botox® formula will gradually take effect in the body, with results becoming visible within a week. There is no downtime after Botox®, so you will be able to return to work and other activities immediately.
How Long Do the Results from Botox® Last?
The results from Botox® typically last between four and six months until the formula starts to wear off. For this reason, many patients choose to schedule regular Botox® treatment sessions in order to maintain their results.
