What is BOTOX?

BOTOX in Oklahoma City and Edmond is a type of injectable called a neuromodulator, with ingredients derived from botulinum toxin type A. When injected into the tiny facial muscles responsible for wrinkle-producing contractions, BOTOX can temporarily halt activity in those muscles, leading to smoother, more youthful-looking skin. By temporarily blocking the chemical signals that tell the muscles to contract, BOTOX can soften the expression and shave years off of your perceived age.

What is the Cost of Botox in Oklahoma City?

The cost of Botox treatments varies from patient to patient. Botox is priced according to how many units of the substance are required to smooth wrinkles and fine lines and achieve a patient’s aesthetic goals. Each individual has a different facial structure, and unique aesthetic concerns, and requires a different number of units of Botox to achieve their desired results. On average, Botox injections cost between $125 to $500 for a full facial treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for Botox?

For patients who desire more dramatic changes than can be achieved with over-the-counter creams, lotions, and serums but who aren’t quite ready for a surgical procedure, BOTOX injections can be a gamechanger. BOTOX in Oklahoma City and Edmond is ideal for temporarily reducing laugh lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds.

Good candidates for BOTOX…

  • Are at least 18 years old
  • Are physically and mentally healthy
  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Are realistic in their expectations for improvement

For those dealing with moderate to severe facial sagging or those struggling with facial volume loss, BOTOX may not be the best choice. In these cases, our team can work with you to find the right solution for rejuvenating your appearance.

How Can I Best Prepare for my BOTOX Session?

Before your BOTOX appointment, our team will discuss which medications you should avoid. These will usually include aspirin, ibuprofen, blood thinners, muscle relaxers, and allergy medications. If you do smoke, you will need to quit both before and after your BOTOX treatment to help reduce the likelihood of bruising.

Applying ice packs and arnica to treatment areas before your session can also help prevent the risk of bruising and swelling. Light exercise such as jogging, biking, walking, or other cardio activities can help elevate your mood, reduce stress, and keep your blood pumping before your BOTOX injections. However, you should avoid exercising within 5 hours of your appointment.

What Happens After my BOTOX Session?

There is no downtime after BOTOX. Neuromodulator patients can come into the office over their lunch break and quickly return to work or school after undergoing BOTOX injections. Results are typically seen within 2-3 days, with the biggest changes noticeable after 7 days. Improvements with BOTOX can last up to 3-4 months, at which point the treatment can be repeated.

  2. Stay upright for at least four hours after the injections.
  3. Apply cold compresses to reduce swelling.
