Botox treatments in San Jose at our medspa are one of our most popular services. We also get lots of inquiries about Botox and here are a few of the most popular FAQs:
Is Botox safe?
Botox has been FDA-approved for cosmetic use (to treat wrinkles and excessive sweating) since 2002. Prior to that, Botox had been used for almost 20 years to treat certain muscle disorders. Last year over 5.7 million people had Botox or Dysport treatments done. If you are receiving true Botox (made by Allergan) from a reputable business by a skilled clinician, you will most likely love the results!
How exactly does Botox work?
Frown lines are created by overactive muscles. Botox has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. Less Botox can partially relax the muscle, while more Botox can totally relax it. It just depends on the result you want.
How long does Botox last?
Anyone who’s had Botox will tell you that they wished it would last forever! Unfortunately that is not the case. Typically Botox will last a person 3 to 4 months.
Do Botox injections hurt? Will I bruise?
Most clients feel minor irritation similar to an insect sting. The discomfort is minimal and the procedure does not take a long amount of time (approximately 15 minutes). You may have a bit of redness at the injection site and bruising is possible – it depends on the person.
Will Botox leave my forehead numb?
No, Botox does not affect the nerves responsible for sensation so you will not have numbness.
How much does Botox cost?
Botox at Blu Cocoon MedSpa is $14.00 per unit. Depending on the individual, we may used about 20-24 units in the frown lines between the eyebrow, 10 to 14 unites in the forehead region, 10-14 units around the eyes for “crow’s feet”. The amount needed truly varies by person.
I’ve seen Botox for cheap elsewhere. How can there be such a big price range?
We strongly believe that you get what you pay for. At Blu Cocoon, you are not only paying for the product, but you are paying for the service by a highly-trained clinician. In fact, we blogged about bargain Botox and why it is not worth it … read the entire post.
