Side Effects of BOTOX Cosmetic®
Patients will notice that directly after the injections, the treated areas may be tender and slightly red. These are normal reactions that the body has to both the BOTOX solution as well as from the needle.
More serious side effects are extremely rare but can include allergic reactions, skin rashes, dizziness or trouble breathing. This is not a complete list of possible side effects; our BOTOX injector will provide you with that information prior to your treatment.
Cost of BOTOX Treatment
BOTOX costs are based upon a per unit fee. Depending upon the size of the area to be treated, a half dozen or more units may be used per area. When multiple facial areas are treated, the price increases appropriately.
Though the prices of BOTOX can go up or down based upon supply/demand as well as competition between providers, patients can expect to pay between $10 and $15 per unit used.
We offer competitive prices as well as seasonal specials running throughout the year so that our injectables patients receive the best treatments at the most affordable prices. We are glad to work with New York patients to reach an affordable treatment cost, especially when patients commit to a long term treatment plan for 12 months or longer.
No matter your aesthetic goals for a more youthful appearance, our skilled injector, James Christian, along with our highly-qualified New York Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons can give you a complete treatment plan that will address each of your facial concerns. We are known for sitting with patients for as long as needed to answer questions and customize a treatment plan that will be most effective while working within your budget.

This category of non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic procedures are designed to eliminate deep folds and wrinkles, fill in shallow areas of the face, plump up lips, restore cheek volume, and lessen facial creases such as laugh lines around the mouth (the naso-labial folds). Facial fillers can also be a wonderful way to fill in scars on the face that have a sunken appearance to raise the skin up to a normal position.
Often times, our patients combine their filler treatment with BOTOX, laser resurfacing or chemical peels for the best results without the need for invasive surgery. Facial fillers can be made of different components, each having their benefits and degrees of effectiveness.
Let’s take a look at the various types of fillers that can be used to enhance the appearance of youthfulness and lessen the signs of aging. Again, please be aware that many medspa centers and the like are jumping on the “fountain of youth” bandwagon and are treating patients with under-qualified providers.
