SERVICING OCEAN CITY, BALTIMORE CITY, BALTIMORE, HARFORD, HOWARD AND CECIL CO's
The East Coast Aesthetics division is committed to providing the highest quality products, all while being administered by certified and trained professionals.
Transformative results can be achieved by applying Botox ® injections into specific facial muscles, temporarily paralyzing them, causing a wrinkle-erasing effect. We offer our patients a wide variety of options for their cosmetic needs. Due to the high rates of success and minimal downtimes, Botox ® injections are certainly a popular procedure and sought after by women and men of all ages. It is reported that almost 3 million people worldwide have been injected with Botox ® and 87-90% have reported amelioration of wrinkles in less than a week. Some patients report dramatic visible results in as little as 3 days of Botox ® injections with minimal to no discomfort.
Cosmetic Botox - Uses and additional benefits
What to expect during your treatment
After our practitioner has decided on a proper treatment regimen, you will be asked to sign a consent form before treatment commences. A semi-reclining position where the upper body is elevated is preferred, or a normal sitting position can be taken. Tensing the muscle before injections will prevent any unpleasant sensations and limit bruising. The required units of Botox ® are then injected directly into the target muscle. Our practitioner will decide what area to inject and the dosage required for optimal benefit. Since the procedure itself is relatively free from notable effects and is rather quick (10-30 minutes for a full session), it can easily be performed as a lunch-time procedure where you can return to work immediately.
Expectations after your treatment
Results can be expected from anywhere between 48-96 hours depending on dosage and type of BTX, the severity of wrinkles, unique facial musculature, and site of action. Maximum benefits can be observed by about 1-2 weeks. Results can typically last up to 3 months or more. When you notice a reemergence of lines, it’s best to make an appointment for Botox ® follow-up treatments.
After Care Instructions
How much is Botox?
Botox® injections cost $12 per unit. Our practitioner will decide how many units will be required to treat wrinkles effectively. An example of the cost of treating a ‘frown line’ is about 20 units, which is $240. Again, our practitioner will work with you to determine how many units are required according to each clinical situation to achieve your optimal results.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox ® treatments are quite safe as demonstrated by numerous studies and clinical observations (side effects occur in less than 2% of patients). Patient safety and education is our top priority, as is full disclosure. If you experience any unwanted side effects, please contact our clinic immediately and do not operate machinery or vehicles. Literature and clinical observation state that the following side effects can occur on rare (< 2%) occasions:
Immediate (24-48 hours)
Delayed (> 48 hours)
