Botox (OnabotulinumtoxinA) is an FDA-approved injectable prescription medicine by Allergan used to improve common signs of aging such as facial wrinkles and lines. When injected into the facial muscles, Botox can temporarily relax facial muscles and smooth frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead lines, and eyebrow furrows. The experienced Botox providers at AYA are experts in administering Botox injections to achieve beautiful, natural, and more youthful-looking results.

Is Botox safe?
In clinical trials, Botox has been proven a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles by causing temporary muscle weakness or paralysis.
How much does Botox cost?
The cost of Botox depends on several factors, including the number of treatment areas and the amount of Botox product required to achieve the desired results. The best way to determine your exact costs is to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced Botox providers.
What else is Botox used for?
In addition to cosmetic uses in dermatology, the effects of Botox and other botulinum toxin products can treat a range of medical conditions, including rosacea, chronic migraine, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating and severe underarm sweating), overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, neck pain caused by cervical dystonia, limb spasticity, blepharospasm, strabismus, and the muscle spasms and muscle contractions associated with certain neurological conditions.
Who should not get Botox injections?
Botulinum neurotoxins like Botox should not be administered to pregnant or breastfeeding women, as it is unknown how they may affect the fetus.
What’s the difference between Botox vs. Dysport?
Dysport spreads faster and is ideal for larger areas such as the forehead. Botox is more potent and doesn’t spread as quickly, making it ideal for smaller areas such as frown lines and crow’s feet.
How many units of Botox for the forehead
The specific number of units required for your treatment will depend on various factors. The best way to find out how many units and how often you may require injections of botulinum toxin is to schedule a consultation.
How long does Botox last?
Injections of Botox can last anywhere from 2 to 6 months. In general, Botox lasts approximately 3-4 months for most patients.
Does Botox have any side effects?
While serious side effects are rare, injections of Botox can cause allergic reactions at the injection site, as well as double vision, dry eyes, dry mouth, and other eye problems such as drooping eyelids and blurred vision.
