Frequently asked questions about Botox® Cosmetic

Where can Botox® be used?

In general, Botox® is used to soften the appearance of lines on the upper face, including the lines of the glabella – the area located between the eyebrows (“11 lines”), the horizontal lines across the forehead, and lines at the outside corners of the eyes (“crow’s feet”). For concerns about lines around the mouth, please see the section labeled fillers.

What is the price of Botox®?
The normal price of Botox® is $12 per unit. However, a consultation with Dr Bushore will help clarify your individual needs.
How many units will be needed for my treatment?
How does Botox® work?
Over time, wrinkles form as we move the muscles of our upper face (scowling, squinting, smiling, etc). Botox® works to block the neurotransmission of these muscles and thereby reduces, or even stops the movement of specific wrinkle-producing facial muscles.
How is Botox® performed?
Botox® is applied to the selected areas of your face through a series of injections with very fine needles. Most patients experience little discomfort during their treatments.
How long does Botox® last?
On average, Botox® lasts 3 months.
How long does Botox® take to work?
Most people notice Botox® starting to take effect after about 2 days, however the full effects take up to 2 weeks.More information: Botox®

If you are unsure if Botox® is right for you, you may schedule a cosmetic consultation with Balcones Dermatology to discuss the options. Cosmetic consultations are $50. The price of the consultation will be waived should you decide to have a procedure performed at that visit.

***Please note, cosmetic consultations should not be scheduled for evaluation of conditions such as acne, or for the elective removal of skin lesions such as skin tags or moles. Balcones Dermatology would be happy to address such issues through a routine office visit.
