If you want to look 25 forever, you may need to go to the needle. Our resident dermatologist Dr. Davindra Singh gives us the 411 on the ultimate wrinkle eraser: Botox™.
What is Botox™?
It's one brand of neuromodulator that weakens tiny muscles to stop expressive movements.
Who should get it?
If you're concerned about the look of fine lines and wrinkles, ask a medical professional if Botox™ is an option.
How much does it cost?
Each unit of Botox™ can range from $10 to $16 depending on the facility and the qualifications of the person doing the injection. For most women, it takes approximately 40 units to erase wrinkles on your forehead and eye area.
How long does it last?
You'll see full results about 10 days after your injection. The results will last between three to four months.
What are the risks?
In experienced hands, the risks are minimal. Very rarely, you may experience slight bruising and headaches and these issues resolve quickly.
