Botox Injections: How to benefit the most and have the best result.

Botox injection has become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Botox injection has no downtime, the effect can be seen in 4 to 7 days and is relatively painless. Botox is primarily used on frown lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines, forehead lines and pebble chin or to reduce sweating under armpits. It can be also used to decrease teeth grinding and the volume of the masseter muscle. The muscles under the skin contract when we frown, laugh or worry causing wrinkles. Botox injection temporarily weakens the muscles and thereby reduces the wrinkles and also decrease or stop the sweating by seat glands where injected.

In today’s market one can have a Botox injection in a variety of places: medical practices of all types from family practice to gynecologist, dentist, dermatologist and plastic surgery, etc.. In addition, many spas, private homes in form of Botox parties’ inviting a nurse practitioner or a doctor offering Botox injections.

To benefit the most from your Botox injection you need to pay attention to the following:

· The expertise, experience and an eye for perfection of the person injecting the Botulinum toxin A are important. Botox injection by itself is a simple procedure, but to identify exactly what muscles and how many units to inject  or how deep to inject requires expertise and experience . Lack of accurate injection might result in droopy eyebrows, eyelids or an unnatural facial expression of surprised look.

· There is no “standard Botox injection” for everybody, it should be individualize for each person according to their need and strength of each muscle and anatomy of each patient. To have the best and consistent result from Botox injection, it is important that an accurate and precise chart is made for the patient recording the exact location of each injection and the amount injected, so that the plastic surgeon has an accurate guideline to adjust and improve the result for the next time or to obtain the same result.

· It might not be a good idea to go to different places for each injection every three to four months based on the lowest cost. The cost might be slightly less but it is unlikely that you can expect the optimal result or the same result each time.

· Allergan is the manufacturer of Botox Cosmetic which is shipped refrigerated to the physician’s office in the form of powder in a vacuum sealed vial. This powder is diluted in saline (salted water) in the physician’s office. The degree that the Botox is diluted and how many units are injected in each area is important. If more saline is added to the vial of Botox powder, the Botox is more diluted and for the same amount of injection less unit is injected, therefore the effect on the muscle is less effective.

· In our Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. A.H. Nezami, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon himself does the Botox injections. Our goal is to obtain consistently the best possible and the longest lasting result.  According to Allergan representative, Dr. Nezami has the highest patient retention rate in the state of Florida. Each patient has his or her own chart accurately documented the exact location and the number on units of Botox injected at each site. In our Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center we dilute 1vial of powder in 1 ml of saline to have more concentrated product for more precise effect in the area injected.  We work with Allergan rebate program; the rebate ranges from $25.00 to $75.00, In addition we offer $100.00 off for our first time Botox user.
