Sometimes, even with the most carefully followed skin care regimen and routine, wrinkles, fine lines, and deep set grooves show up on your face.
This is not ideal, but luckily non-invasive cosmetic treatments like Botox exist for people who want to minimize the more unsavory side effects of aging.
While Botox may seem like the perfect solution to some people, others may find themselves hesitant and wondering about how affordable it really is. Here’s some information on the best pricing of Botox in Washington, DC now.
Wait, How Does Botox Work?
A cosmetic botox procedure is a simple, non-invasive physician-administered treatment. Botox treatments involve the injection of botulinum toxin into any specific areas that you want treated in order to temporarily smooth any fine lines, wrinkles, and furrows caused by recurring facial movements.
Before administering Botox, your physician will examine and evaluate your facial muscle movement, amongst other factors, and look for any facial lines or wrinkles caused by the movement of these muscles. A good injector will know to not overdo it and address each and every issue. Some areas are so close together or in conjunction that treating one area will have a positive effect on the other as well.
The location, size, and movement of the muscles that create these aging lines can vary among different people. That’s why it is important to have a physician experienced in personalized care. The objective with Botox is to create a youthful and more relaxed and refreshed-looking appearance by injecting just enough units of Botox into the necessary areas. Too much of the drug and in the wrong place will not get you a natural look but make you look frozen, stiff, or expressionless.
After the procedure, you’ll want to take it easy for a while, though that doesn’t mean you have to laze around at home all day. Be sure to avoid strenuous activities, massaging your face, and too much sun exposure! If you weren’t already applying sunscreen everyday, be sure to start, though remember to be gentle.
How Much Does Botox Really Cost?
Botox cosmetic treatment prices vary depending on the experience of the injector and clinic, as well as the botulinum toxin brand used in injections. However, you shouldn’t let cost affect how you choose your clinic. While you don’t want to overpay, you do want to get your money’s worth and make sure that you’re not investing in any shady or unreliable businesses.
Some clinics charge $300 for areas such as frown lines, crow’s feet, or forehead wrinkles, though this is a cumulative cost. Practitioners and clinics will charge prices per unit of the botulinum toxin, so the range of the area you want treated also affects the cost. If you’re worried about that really upping the prices, then you can always start with fewer units of Botox then you might originally go for.
You should also keep a lookout at any specials on botox units, since some clinics have specials that reduce the price! Other clinics offer loyalty programs as well, so if you’ve had Botox done before and are a loyal customer, you could be earning and racking up points as well. Even if the clinic itself does not offer any specials at the time, be sure to check third party websites as well! Make sure they are reputable and can be trusted before investing in any coupons that promise a price that seems almost too good to be true!
