If you have frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles or neck creases, this treatment can help by blocking nerve signals and relaxing the area. A neuromodulator like Botox Injections Vancouver can also lift the brow and open the eye, lessen a gummy smile, minimize lip puckering, and reduce the width of the lower face.
Botox is derived from a natural, purified protein that has been safely used for many decades to treat a variety of conditions including eye disorders and even excessive underarm sweating. The active ingredient in botox or dysport impedes the nerve impulses that cause facial muscles to contract. The result is a significant reduction in the “dynamic wrinkles” that show up as forehead lines, crow’s feet, and furrows between the eyebrows. By targeting specific facial muscles and causing them to temporarily relax, Dr. Buonassisi is able to create a smooth and youthful skin appearance for his patients.
How much does Botox cost? Cost varies, as some clinics choose to charge per unit and others per area. The average price is about $20 per unit, so a single treatment with 20 units would cost about $400. That typically would cover only one area on the face, and some people may need as many as 60 units per area.
