Botox®: Things to Consider
Let’s be honest – there are wonderful things about aging, but getting wrinkles is not one of them. Thankfully, it’s easy to fight off the effects of aging. Non-surgical injections of Botox® can flatten and minimize those annoying wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes.
AlluraDerm’s Dr. Mancha is a Botox® specialist and can answer any questions you may have about this easy and effective procedure.
Why Do You Want to Get Botox?
Before jumping into the procedure, it’s a good idea to discuss your reasons for wanting Botox® with your doctor. Do you have forehead lines that bother you? Or, are you looking for a way to appear refreshed on a daily basis, even if you’re feeling tired?
By discussing your needs and goals, your doctor will be able to recommend the right amount of Botox® to inject.
Choose an Experienced Doctor
Although Botox® has been used for more than two decades for therapeutic treatments, Botox® is a fairly recent cosmetic treatment, so it’s important to find a doctor who is not only experienced with the product, but is also an experienced injector.
Board certified since 1991, Victor Mancha, MD is a Master Injector. He is a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and is the top single provider of Botox® in New Mexico. He is also the first Black Diamond physician in New Mexico, an elite status ranked by Allergan.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is mostly used on the upper third of the face. It is a neurotoxin that relaxes the muscles in your face to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. It smoothes out crow’s feet, the “11s” (the lines in between your eyebrows), and horizontal forehead lines.
Botox® is injected with a very small needle and is usually only required every 3 to 4 months for maximum effect.
What is the Cost?
Botox® can be purchased by units. Through December 31st, AlluraDerm is offering Botox® at $11/unit. Also, if you invest in your skin at AlluraDerm by purchasing the SkinMedica Essential System, you will get 20 units of Botox® free!
What Should I Tell My Doctor?
Before receiving Botox®, it is important to be honest about any prescription drugs or vitamins you may be taking. Be open about any dermatological concerns you may have as well, AlluraDerm has a full range of anti-aging and spa services that can help rejuvenation.
