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
All injections are physician-performed at our office:
We have a minimum of $500.00 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 area injections, foreheads
can take three to five area injections, lateral eyes can take two or three area 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.More can be
concentrated in needed zones based on experience, so the amounts in various
locations can vary based on need of individual patients.
Patients should be aware of “come on in gimmicks”
that are not an uncommon practice in some clinics. For best results, 70
units can inject four areas including, the glabellar area, central forehead,
and both lateral eye crow’s feet areas, and sometimes a small amount under each lower
eyelid may reduce fine lines if desired. This will provide the best
cosmetic results and will also provide the best long-term result with the most
cost efficiency. Though many people look to spend $150 to $250, the lack
of enough botulinum toxin injected, or spread to thin over to many treatment areas or treatment zones or muscle areas
makes for a poorer, unsatisfactory, and often more costly result in the long run for the
patient. Our officealways uses brand name quality botulinum toxin for each patient trying to get the best achievable results. It is important to remember though, that all medications can have adverse reactions. Also, remember that some competitor products may need 2 or 3 times the amount of units to achieve somewhat equivalent results, so when something seems "cheaper per unit", it may not really be since you will need way more units of the other product to be somewhat equal in result. That is why you need to talk to a physician.
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.
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
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?
Things to know about the product. The product is derived from bacteria. The bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum produces the toxin that is used for cosmetic purposes as well as for some medical uses. It relaxes targeted muscles, thereby greatly eliminating or softening wrinkles on certain parts of the face. It has been used for many years for spasticity disorders, often in children, and in treating conditions where the muscles are in spasm. It has been used to reduce migraine headaches and used to reduce sweating disorders. It can be used for vertical lines between your eyebrows, forehead lines, and lines at the corners of your eyes (crow's feet), but some of these areas may be off-label uses. It is generally used for what are referred to as lines of expression. Expression lines can be such as frown lines, brow lines, crow's feet, and bunny lines that become evident with age and exaggerated by excessive facial muscle activity. Again, in many offices some of the areas are off-label uses of 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..
If you would like to learn more about your cosmetic options, or to find out if BOTOX® treatments are right for you, please call our office at (913) 962-1869 and schedule a consultation with the doctor.
