Wondering if BOTOX® is right for you?
We are proud to have partnered with Bellissimo Plastic Surgery Center & Medi Spa to offer Botox in Pittsburgh! We have many questions that come to us from our clients regarding Botox so we thought we would answer the most common.
Here is some helpful information and some FAQ’s from our partner, Bellissimo Plastic Surgery Center and Medi Spa. Following the questions, check out our Live consultation and Q&A with Ashley Orlandini, RN our Nurse Injector Specialist.
Did you know that the top areas of concern for both men and women are:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s Feet Lines
- Frown Lines
All of these can be improved by using BOTOX®!
What to expect:
How much product is needed to achieve the desired results?
Botox is measured in units and functions per the number of units injected in an area. We offer Botox at $13 per Unit and is administered at it’s fullest strength each and every time. Each person’s muscle strength can vary, therefore, the amount of Botox required is subjective. Each patient is evaluated individually for the areas of animation and strength of the muscle pull. The stronger the muscle action the more Botox is needed to weaken the muscle. Patients can have anywhere from 12 Units to 40 Units administered with the average patient right in the middle around 25-30 units.
Does it hurt to have BOTOX®?
The truth is that everyone has a different threshold of pain. Some patients have no pain at all, while others describe the pain as minimal. Botox is a simple office procedure that takes minutes to perform, with no downtime and visibly improved results. No anesthetic or numbing medicine is required and the needle is very small. Some patients say they hear a crackling sound during the injection but that is normal and the treatment is relatively pain-free. Red spots or mild swelling at the injection sites are not uncommon but should disappear prior to leaving the appointment. Some patients may experience mild bruising but this is usually gone within a few days. Results can take up to a few days to become visible and a two week follow up appointment is scheduled for new patients.
How long does BOTOX® last?
Results can take up to a few days to become visible and a two week follow up appointment is scheduled for evaluation with new patients. The effect of Botox will last usually 3-4 months for both men and women and there is no difference in downtime.
Can I Get a Facial or Skincare Treatment Right After My Appointment?
Any Skincare treatments or Massages need to be done BEFORE your Injectable appointment. After your injectable appointment, you must wait 2 weeks before any skincare or massage treatments are scheduled.
Will My Face Look Overdone or Unnatural?
You can trust our Nurse Injector, Ashley Orlandini, RN to deliver subtle results as she is is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
How Can I Save on my Botox Treatment?
Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment.
The best way to save money on your treatments is to enroll in Brilliant Distinctions®, the Allergan consumer loyalty program that helps you earn points for savings on future treatments. It’s easy, and free!
