Is Botox right for you?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

Although many cosmetic treatments were once considered a luxury, the affordability of BOTOX® for both men and women today can be compared to purchases such as a new pair of shoes, make-up or a hairstyle! Each patient’s needs are unique, so the required number of units of BOTOX® to achieve desired results will vary. We fully educate our patients about treatment and pricing at the time of consultation.

Begin with Skin uses UPP (Unit Pricing Policy) to determine the cost of a BOTOX® procedure. UPP allows patients to pay for only what they need to treat an area and our patients know exactly how many units of BOTOX® they will be purchasing for their given treatment. BOTOX® treatments range in price due to individual needs.

The treatment process for BOTOX® Cosmetic is simple. Here's what you might expect at Begin with Skin from the moment you arrive until your procedure is done.

Before the Treatment

The location, size, and use of the muscles that create furrow between your brows can vary among individuals. Ask us any questions you may have about your expectations for treatment. We will discuss goals and create a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
