If you have issues with facial lines and wrinkles, suffer from chronic migraines, or deal with the embarrassment of excessive sweating, Botox® may be the solution you’ve been looking for. At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, we offer Botox® treatments to men and women in Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville and other communities in north Alabama.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is really the dermal filler that started it all. It’s at the top of the list of most frequently requested cosmetic treatments, with millions of Botox® procedures performed every year.
While best known for its effectiveness in combating the signs of aging, the uses for Botox® extend far beyond facial lines and wrinkles. It’s been used with great success in treating migraine headaches and excessive sweating of the hands, forehead, and armpits.
There are actually more than 20 medical conditions Botox® is helpful in treating, with additional applications being constantly researched and explored. Allergan, the corporate owner and parent company of Botox®, currently holds almost 800 patents for future Botox® uses.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
Nease Cosmetic Surgery charges $12 per unit of Botox®. The cost of a Botox® treatment varies from one person to another, depending on the number of injections needed and other variables that may affect the total cost. Your treatment plan will be developed during your initial consultation and an accurate assessment of your cost can be given to you at that time.
Botox® injections are priced by the unit. The total cost of the treatment is determined by the number of units needed to achieve the results you want. Insurance companies seldom cover the cost of cosmetic procedures, so we strive to keep our treatments as affordable for our patients as possible. We offer complimentary consultations and a variety of payment methods, including cash, major credit cards and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are the Benefits of Botox®?
With so many applications available to treat a wide variety of medical issues, the benefits of Botox® are equally wide and varied. Some of the benefits cross many different applications, such as being a minimally invasive treatment. Other benefits include:
- Nearly flawless complexion by reducing or eliminating lines and wrinkles
- Lifts drooping brows, restoring a more youthful look
- Increased self-confidence
- Migraine relief
- Effectively blocks excessive sweating
- Desensitizes over-active bladder issues, reducing or eliminating incontinence
- Treats crossed eyes (strabismus)
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
In most cases, if you’re a healthy adult with no past or current medical issues of neuromuscular disease, and you’re not pregnant or nursing, you’re likely a good candidate for Botox® treatment.
If your expectations are realistic and you’ve got moderate or severe lines and wrinkles you want to eliminate, Botox® injections may be the perfect solution for you.
What is Botox® Recovery Like?
There is no actual downtime needed following Botox® treatments. No recovery is required and most patients can go back to their normal work or activities within just a few hours.
Noticeable results will begin to show up within three days, sometimes taking up to two weeks. Your results will continue to improve over time, with full and optimal results after about a month. Be sure to read and follow any post-procedure instructions given following your Botox® treatment.
