Did you know that there are alternatives to Botox? Although Botox has been around the longest, there are actually 3 other medications that can produce the similar results. Most people know the word Botox and it acts as an “umbrella” term in this category, but there are others that your provider at Outlast may choose to use – Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau.
So, what areas are best suited for Botox?
Most commonly treated:
1. “Angry 11’s” (corrugator/glabella region)
2. Forehead lines (frontalis) and
3. Crows feet (orbicularis oculi).
What to expect:
On the day of your treatment, we will ask you make faces to use the muscles of your face, to determine the location and number of units required to soften and correct the lines.
Next, your face will be cleansed and the injections will begin. Based on where we are treating and the amount, this can be done in the matter of minutes. It's quick!
When you leave the office that day, you will look the same as when you came in! Zero downtime.
On average, you will start to see results in about 5 days. Maybe sooner, maybe a few days longer. By day 10-14, you’re rocking your result and looking your best!
So how long will these amazing results last?
FDA studies have shown that Botox lasts approximately 12-16 weeks, or 3-4 months. So when you love it (and you will), you will have to keep up with it about 3-4 times per year. Better yet, the more often you get toxin injections, the longer your treatments last!
What will this cost me?
Botox can be charged either by area or unit. At Outlast Aesthetics we charge and dose by the unit. Whether you are starting out with preventative Botox (and don’t need much) or have more mature wrinkling, we feel that it is best to customize the treatment to your needs and therefore only pay for what you need.
