Common Botox Questions at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey
What is difference between BOTOX and other dermal fillers?
There are several other injectable facial fillers available that address the same problem areas as Botox, such as Juvederm, restalyne, collagen, and radiesse. However, there is a main difference in how they work. Injectable fillers give your face a much youthful and smoother appearance by "filling in" wrinkles and frown lines in the face. They can also be used "fill in" on other areas of the body.
Botox, on the other hand, works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause the lines and wrinkles on your face. As a result, your face appears fresher and smoother. In addition, because of the relaxation of the facial muscles, new wrinkles are less likely to be formed while Botox is still active. Botox injections typically last bout 3-4 months on average
What are the side effects of BOTOX?
The side effects of Botox are very minimal, if any, and usually subside within a few days. Side effects can include temporary swelling, bruising, or redness. Loss of sensation or numbness in treated areas is not really an issue associated with Botox treatments. In order to minimize the occurrence of any side effects, be sure to only receive Botox injections from a respected professional, inform him or her of any health problems you may have and/or any medications you are talking, and most importantly, follow the pre and post treatment instructions set by the doctor.
How much does BOTOX cost?
There are two was to charge for Botox treatment; either per unit of Botox used or per area treated. If being charged by area, costs typically range between $125 and $400 per treatment area. If being charged per unit Botox, costs range anywhere between $10 and $25 per unit, depending on the location of the body being treated. Multiple areas can be treated at once, and on average, repeat treatments are needed every 3 to 4 months.
