The FDA has approved BOTOX® for three cosmetic uses: horizontal forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet to the side of either eye. In addition to these primary applications, BOTOX® can also be used for a number of other treatments. Skilled injectors—like the team at New Jersey’s Sood Center—can address bunny lines, use “masseter BOTOX®” to relax an overly tense and wide jawline, smooth neck bands, create a BOTOX® lip flip for a fuller-looking pout, and even help to curb excess sweating.
BOTOX® is so versatile because its contraction-relaxing abilities can work on a wide range of muscles, as well as glands. Releasing tension can help the brows to look more youthful, the neck to appear less aged, and the upper lip to seem larger and more prominent. All of these effects are safe and temporary.
Remember: If you’re interested in making a cosmetic change, you don’t have to know what treatment you want or what strategy would be best for you when you contact the Sood Center. Instead, we encourage you to tell us about the aspects of your appearance you would like to change, and we will create a recommended plan to help you achieve your goals. The plan can include BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, fillers, laser treatments, or a combination of options.
Since each person’s injection session will be unique in terms of treatment area, number of syringes used, and more, questions about BOTOX® pricing are best discussed in person. We do accept various payment options for your convenience, including personal checks, major credit cards, cash, and financing through CareCredit®.
Every treatment starts with a personalized consultation. One of our qualified injectors will work with you to develop a plan. This is an excellent time to get answers to any questions you have about BOTOX® cost, longevity, and more.
We will also ask you some questions and take your medical history, as well as gather information on any medications you are taking or took recently. Our goal is to make the entire treatment process as safe and comfortable as possible for you.
Once we have mutually agreed that BOTOX® is the ideal treatment for you, we can schedule your injections—in many cases for the same day!
The actual BOTOX® injections are completed quickly. Every session is unique, but a typical visit can be wrapped up in about the same amount of time as a lunch break.
Despite the speed of a treatment session, each injection is made with great care and precision. The sensation is similar to someone briefly pinching your skin, which is well tolerated by our patients. Anyone with concerns about how the injections will feel can talk with us ahead of time about options for reducing sensation in the treatment area.
You should expect some minor side effects after BOTOX® injections, including slight redness, bruising, and swelling in the treatment area. All of these are very temporary and will fade without any need for special care. Be sure to avoid rubbing or putting pressure on the injection site for about 24 hours. You should also stay out of spas, saunas, and other high-heat environments for about 48 hours.
The treated muscles will begin to relax within a few days, with the targeted facial lines becoming less noticeable as they do. The full effect can take a couple weeks, when the muscles reach peak relaxation and stay at rest no matter how much the surrounding muscles contract.
The face-refreshing results of BOTOX® typically last for three to four months. Motion will gradually be restored as the effects wear off and contractions return. If you want to enjoy long-term wrinkle-relaxing benefits, we can work up an ongoing plan for you that includes routine maintenance visits in order to preserve your more youthful appearance.
