In other words, if your muscle doesn’t receive the message to pull together then it won’t be able to pull it together. BOTOX® is very safe. Dr. Mason Jones is very conservative and has a great beside manner. Areas to be treated are: Glabella (area between brows); forehead, and crow’s feet. The total cost depends on how many units are deposited by the doctor.
The treatment takes 15 minutes per site. There is no downtime but the site of the injection may have a small dot. The patient must sit upright for 3-4 hours (they cannot lie down) after treatment. Then the patient must make facial movements (exercises) 1-2 hours after the treatment. BOTOX® lasts 3-4 months.
