3 BOTOX Tips Straight from an Expert

BOTOX tips

BOTOX® Cosmetic has been the top aesthetic procedure performed by plastic surgeons since 1999, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. With so many patients using it to reduce frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, you may be curious if it’s worth trying. Dermatology Clinic of Idaho’s Michael Housley answers three common questions to help you learn more about BOTOX here:

Q: How Long Does it Last?

A: BOTOX begins working in just a few days with full results within 1-2 weeks. It usually lasts 3-4 months for most people.

Q: Can I Use BOTOX for Migraines?

A: Often patients say BOTOX helps reduce headaches. However, if you want to use it to treat migraines specifically, you must see a neurologist for it. A neurologist usually uses many more units, so just know it can be more expensive.

Q: How Will I Look After BOTOX?

A: You may see some of the Real Housewives look like they have a “frozen look” after getting BOTOX, where their faces look the same whether they are screaming, laughing, or crying. Housley shares, “It doesn’t have to cause a frozen look. We prefer to help patients keep some expression.”

What Does it Cost?

Your BOTOX cost depends on the size of the area and how many treatments you get, as it is priced by unit. If you’re worried about keeping the cost of BOTOX down, be on the lookout for deals throughout the year. For instance, National BOTOX Cosmetic Day happens on November 20. So, don’t miss out to save some money on your BOTOX treatments then and throughout the year with promotions.
