What is it?

Botox has been in use in the medical field for years, with the cosmetic uses only coming about recently. Botox works to relax the contraction of muscles by blocking nerve impulses. This results in the muscles no longer being able to contract, which in turn reduces the wrinkles. This lasts for approximately six months until the muscles start receiving nerve signals once again. It is most effective in removing those wrinkes caused by facial movement. The area of your face will be numbed first, then a small amount of Botox will be injected into the area.

How much is it?

Costs of Botox treatments in Houston can vary widely depending on many different variables. How much experience does the cosmetic surgeon have in the procedure? Where is the procedure taking place? In certain parts of the country, such as Los Angeles, cosmetic surgery techniques simply cost more than in other parts of the country, so you may even need to leave Houston to get a better price. Keep in mind that Botox is not a one time treatment. You will more than likely need to go back for multiple treatments as the effects wear off over a time frame of 3-6 months usually. The cost of Botox will generally range any where from $125 - $400 dollars per treatment area per visit. We have discussed possible financing options.

The Botox Procedure

The injection is performed in the doctor's office generally. Minimal discomfort may be felt from the needle injection. The entire procedure usually takes less than 20 minutes total. The doctor will first choose the points of injection, which could be one point or many points. The doctor will then inject the Botox into the marked points. Results are usually seen after one week. Side effects include headache, nausea and pain at the injection point. You can resume normal activites immediately. In rare instances, permanent side effects may occur.
