KANSAS CITY BOTOX® INJECTIONS FOR COSMETIC USES
In our experience, we have found that the injection of Botulinum toxin Type A,
i.e., Botox®, works the best for cosmetic uses and provides the best long-term
results and best over-all satisfaction among patients and has the longest
Units are priced at $10.00 per unit and we have a minimum of $300.00 per patient.
It important though for patients to understand that you must get enough product into the area to do the job and not be to skimpy by trying to save a dollar, indirectly you cost yourself money. Do not try to spread too little too far. On average each needle stick will deliver about 4 to 7 units of botulinum toxin to an injection site. The above prices are for an individual patient (no sharing or splitting).
Glabellar areas can take three to five injections, foreheads
can take three to five injections, lateral eyes can take two or three
injections on each side, and we also like injections under the lower lids to
remove fine lines (one or two on each side). Our office only treats the upper half of the face and we use fillers in
the lower half of the face. More can be
concentrated in needed zones based on experience, so the amounts in various
locations can vary based on need of individual patients.
Remember, these products treat “lines of expression” from muscle activity, and lasers may be needed for aging lines, deep creases, texture problems, sun damage, pigment, etc.
The most important things for the patient in our opinion are:
1) Have a physician do the injections
2) Do not under treat the muscle or area, use enough medication to do the job
These are the things in our opinion that will determine the best result and the longest lasting result. Why would you want to let a nurse or technician inject your botulinum toxin in other clinics or spas?
VISA, MasterCard, Discover & Cash accepted for Botulinum Toxin (i.e., BOTOX®).
Our injections are always physician performed!!
Things to know about the product.
In our opinion the effects usually lasts from 2 to 4 months.
The most common side effect of BOTOX® can be a slight bruising from the needle stick. In some instances, an adjacent muscle may be affected, causing eyelid weakness (ptosis) for several weeks. Talk to your physician about more serious side effects and adverse reactions and whether you are a candidate. The injections are given with a tiny needle, usually 30 gauge, so most say there is only minimal discomfort. We restrict injections to ages 18 to 65 years of age and there may be other restrictions as well.
Please stop all anti-inflammatory medications, including aspirin, for 5-7 days prior to the injection to minimize bruising. We also prefer that you do not take Vit. E, Fish Oil, Garlic tablets, or St. John's Wort for 5-7 days prior to an injection..
