What Is Botox?

Botox, also known as BOTOX® Cosmetic, is a cosmetic procedure that is intended to correct the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Many people use Botox to correct frown lines, crow’s feet around the eyes and wrinkles and lines between the eyeborows in adults. The procedure is done with the aid of a toxin protein that is refined from the bacterium - Clostridium botulinum.

How Does
Botox Work?

The BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in the muscles that lies in the problem areas. It works by hindering muscle activity in these areas so there is no further muscle contraction that is normally caused as a result of repeated squinting and frowning.

How will Botox
Help?

Having Botox done does not mean you will no longer be able to express your emotions. If done correctly your results will diminish wrinkles, frown lines and help you achieve a more youthful look! Make sure the specialist you choose for treatment is a professionally-trained, duly licensed as well as certified to perform this kind of procedure for the best results.

How Painful Is
Botox?

Generally, there is very little-to-no pain but some patients report a pinching sensation as they are injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic. In order to ensure the procedure is painless, the specialist may apply ice or a numbing cream to numb the area intended for the procedure.

Are There Side Effects?

The most commonly known side effects are eyelid drooping and eyelid swelling but the percentage of patients suffering from these side effects is negligible. Generally, there are certain side effects that may go away after a a few hours or within a few days after the procedure. These include headaches, bruising, lethargy, double vision, neck pains, decreased eye sight, blurred vision, dry eyes and a series of allergic reactions and skin hypersensitivity.

How Long Is The Treatment?

As a general rule, the injection process is normally done in 10 minutes. However, there are various other factors that may determine the length of the entire procedure. Included are challenges in your facial contour as well as any underlying medical conditions.

What Is The Average
Cost of Botox Injections?

The average cost of botox injections in Chicago is between $12-$15 per unit and determined by the price of the product used as well as the level of skill of the specialist you choose for this procedure. So having a doctor do it will cost you more per unit than having a nurse administer the injections. Make sure you you have a highly qualified doctor or trained injector for the best results.
