What is the cost of Botox treatment in Grapevine, TX and what do I need to know about cosmetic injectables?

Posted By :

The signs of aging can begin any time after the age of thirty, as the skin begins to naturally lose collagen and elastin. At this point, many men and women begin to monitor the changes in their face that occur gradually over time. If patients become concerned regarding fine lines, wrinkles, and folds, they can ask a Grapevine, TX area dermatologist about the advantages of Botox and other cosmetic injections.

Botox explained

Dr. Bryan Selkin of the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery describes Botox as a neuromodulator that can address wrinkles and folds caused by muscle movement. When the muscles move and tighten in the facial area, they can create lines and wrinkles on the skin. By using neuromodulator injections such as Botox on the muscles in the upper third of the face, these wrinkles and lines can be greatly reduced. The result is a more youthful appearance and fewer imperfections on the skin.

How much does Botox cost?

Dr. Selkin Bryan at Dermatology Center explains How much Botox costs. There are many variables to consider when it comes to the cost of Botox. First, how is Botox being used? Botox can be used for cosmetic issues such as the signs of aging on the face, or it can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, chronic migraines, and other concerns. How much Botox is needed? This varies greatly from patient to patient, but typically between 18 to 26 units are used in the lower forehead, 8 to 16 unites in the upper forehead and 16 to 28 units around the eyes. The price per unit is $13.

What can I expect during my Botox injection appointment?

Botox is administered during a single visit to the office. First, patients consult with Dr. Bryan Selkin or one of our other providers to determine if this treatment is best for their needs. Botox works on dynamic lines (wrinkles that are there at rest will not respond). If the line or fold is formed by a lack of tissue in the area or hollowness, a filler may be more appropriate. This is discussed at the consultation visit. Botox is administered by one of our providers directly into the dynamic muscles creating the areas of concern. The Botox is reconstituted in such a way to diminish pain, and ice is applied after the procedure. You can return to normal activity, with simple instructions such as sleeping more elevated and avoiding heavy activity for 24 hours.

What other options are available?

Dr. Selkin Bryan at Dermatology Center explains What other options are available. Patients may also want to ask about other cosmetic injectables such as collagen stimulators and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These are often used in conjunction with Botox to create a full facial transformation. Dermal fillers may include Juvéderm injectables that add volume directly to wrinkles and folds on the facial area, and collagen stimulators may include Sculptra, which stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen to add volume to areas of concern such as the cheeks. Combining injectables is a terrific way to obtain a “liquid face lift” without the need for plastic surgery. Lasers and creams can can help with anti-aging.
