BOTOX

Your Aesthetic Gateway Drug

Gentle Hands.

Tailored Tox Treatments.

Botox is the most effective way to subtly reduce fine lines and wrinkles on your face and neck. As a neuromodulator, Botox prevents muscles from receiving signals to contract. Your facial contractions can produce unwanted lines over time, though they are also important for symmetry, smiling, and social cues. That's why Botox treatments can't be rushed.

Your face is too precious for rushed, one-size-fits-all Botox injections. With our careful attention-to-detail and gentle hands, you're going to love your Botox Cosmetic results from every angle.

BOTOX FAQs

How much does BOTOX cost?

In Florida, the cost of BOTOX ranges from $10 to $16 per unit. We offer BOTOX at a special rate of $12 per unit for first-time patients and VIP Members pay $11-12 per unit.  Memberships start at $20/month.

What's better: BOTOX vs Dysport?

While Botox and Dysport both employ botulinum toxin to relax muscles and smooth wrinkles, there are some key differences to consider. Dysport often acts more quickly, with results appearing within 2-5 days compared to Botox's 4-7 days. Dysport may also diffuse more broadly from the injection site, which can be advantageous for treating larger areas but requires an experienced injector for precise applications.

Botox cosmetic has been the leading muscle inhibitor for over 30 years now, providing assurance of long-term safety. Botox also has the widest range of FDA approval as safe and effective for cosmetic uses, such as reducing "crows feet" and forehead lines & wrinkles, and medical uses, such as treating migraines and even depression.

 

We offer both, and generally recommend our patients use Botox. For more on the differences between BOTOX® and Dysport, you can read our linked Blog post.

How long does BOTOX last?

On average, results last for 3-4 months. More units can allow your results to last longer. Otherwise, your body's metabolic processes and movement of the treatment area will play a role in determining how long your results last. Over time, muscle action gradually returns and wrinkles and lines begin to reappear. However, they often appear less severe as the muscles are being trained to relax. Poor mixing procedures/dilution can reduce how long your treatment lasts. Call our office to discuss the longer lasting neurotoxin, Daxxify. 

Another injector gave me a droopy eye (ptosis) with BOTOX. Can you avoid this?

Yes. Your forehead muscle keeps your eyebrow muscles elevated. By injecting too much toxin in your forehead, your brow can drop. A dropped brow or droopy eye is also known as ptosis. Our injection pattern is customized to your face and optimal for avoiding giving you a droopy eye. We're in Sanford, and have patients traveling to us for BOTOX® from Lake Mary, DeBary, and Orlando to avoid having their brow dropped.

At what age should I start BOTOX?

Toxin injections are best used early as a preventative treatment. Starting before lines are set in, while your face is at rest, is ideal. Most patients would have benefitted from starting a preventative treatment plan earlier. To learn more about the right age to start BOTOX®, you can read our linked blog post.

What happens if I stop using BOTOX?

Your facial muscle function will return to normal strength. This means that over time your fine lines and wrinkles will return. The brief reprieve your skin experienced from the strength of the muscle will still leave some softened lines for a few months.

Are there any complications or risks with BOTOX?

Our patients come to us to avoid BOTOX complications they may have experienced with other providers, such as eyelid (extremely rare) or eyebrow droop. This has a lot to do with dosing, injection pattern, and post-care routine. Those negative outcomes do wear off eventually, but choosing the right injector the first time can save you a lot of discomfort and aggravation.

The most common side effects of Botox are generally mild and temporary. These can include redness, bruising, or swelling at the injection site.

Do you offer BOTOX for migraines near me?

Botox has been FDA-approved for the prevention of chronic migraines. Severe and chronic muscular facial tension can cause migraines. Strategically dosed and administered botox, around your head and neck, can bring relief by inhibiting chemical signals which cause your facial muscles to maintain tension. Our specialists have undergone training for treating migraines. Find out if this could help relieve your migraines by scheduling a consultation today. Our practice is in Sanford, and we have patients travel to us from Orlando, Lake Mary, Winter Park, and DeBary to relive their migraines.

Can Botox in the masseter muscle help with teeth grinding or TMJ?

BOTOX relaxes the masseter muscles that cause chronic teeth grinding and jaw (masseter) clenching when strategically dosed and administered. If your masseter muscle is overactive, it can lead to tension, pain, and sometimes even changes in your facial shape. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the targeted areas of your masseter, reducing its activity substantially. The procedure takes only a few minutes but provides relief for up to three to five months. This reduction in muscle activity can significantly relieve jaw pain, headaches, and other symptoms associated with bruxism or TMJ. Additionally, over time, the muscle may decrease in size, providing a slimming effect to the jawline.

 

Our specialists have undergone extensive training, and treated hundreds of patients for TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders) relief. To find out if you're a candidate for BOTOX TMJ relief, schedule your consultation today. We have patients drive to our Sanford practice from Winter Park, Orlando, and Lake Mary for TMJ and masseter muscle relief.

How many units of BOTOX do I need?

Your dose is determined by the strength of your muscle and number of areas that require treatment, along with your desired result and duration. Because of all these factors, the range is vast. Generally, from 25 units to 150 units.

Typical units per area:

  • Forehead: 8-20 units

  • "11's": 15-30 units

  • Crow's feet: 12-22 units

  • Bunny lines: 6-12 units

  • Botox lip flip: 4 units (MINIMUM 20 units per visit)

  • Masseters: 30-70 units

  • Chin dimpling: 6-10 units

  • Downturned mouth: 4-8 units

  • Neck: 30-50 units

What is a Botox Lip Flip, and do you offer it?

A Botox lip flip involves injecting Botox into the orbicularis oris muscle around the mouth. This relaxes the muscle, allowing the upper lip to flip upward, creating the illusion of a fuller lip. Unlike traditional lip fillers, which add volume by injecting a substance into the lips, a Botox lip flip changes the shape of the lips without adding volume. The results are subtler and typically last around 2-3 months, compared to fillers, which can last up to a year.

Our patients love coming to us for lip flips. Book your lip appointment today to learn the differences between lip filler and a botox lip flip. Please keep in mind we have a 20 UNIT MINIMUM, so lip flips should be paired with other toxin treatments.

What is the minimum units per treatment?

We have a 20 UNIT MINIMUM. This allows our practice to remain profitable, while never rushing toxin injection procedures. Your lip flip will only require a few units, allowing you to use your additional units elsewhere.

Do you offer BOTOX injections near me in Florida?

We have a med spa for Botox in Sanford, FL & Orlando, FL, with patients driving to us for BOTOX from Deltona, Orange City, DeLand, & Lake Mary. Patients come to us for tailored treatments, gentle hands, and natural-looking results.

Is BOTOX the longest lasting neurotoxin?

Daxxify, Botox, Dysport, and Xeomen are all neuromodulators used for anti-wrinkle treatments. While Botox and similar treatments typically last three to four months, Daxxify boasts a duration of six months or more, leading to fewer treatments yearly. All neurotoxins work by blocking nerve-muscle communication, causing muscle relaxation and preventing wrinkle creation. However, Daxxify's unique peptide exchange technology and extended longevity set it apart, establishing a new standard in aesthetic treatments. All treatments are considered safe and effective.

What are the typical before and after results of Botox treatment?

Before Botox treatment, you might notice dynamic wrinkles and fine lines, particularly in facial expressions like smiling or frowning. After Botox treatment, these wrinkles are often noticeably reduced or even eliminated. The skin appears smoother and more youthful. Results usually become apparent within a few days but reach their peak at around two weeks. We will take before and after photos to show you your fine line and wrinkle reduction results.

What is your late cancellation policy?

To prevent no-shows and give back to our community, all cancellation fees are donated to Samaritan's Village. Samaritan's Village is an Orlando non-profit providing care for survivors of sex trafficking. 

Cancellations within 48 hours have a fee of $75 and cancellations within 24 hours have a fee of $150.

What does Botox actually do?

Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes the targeted muscles when injected in small amounts. By doing so, it prevents the muscles from contracting, which in turn smooths out wrinkles and fine lines. It's widely used for cosmetic applications like treating forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines. Beyond cosmetic uses, Botox also has various medical applications such as treating migraines, excessive sweating, and certain muscular disorders.

What is Botox made of?

Botox is made from Clostridium botulinum, a bacterium that produces a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. This toxin is purified and used in very small, controlled doses to make Botox. When injected, it acts as a muscle relaxant by blocking the nerve signals that cause muscle contractions. Although it originates from a bacterium that can produce a toxin, Botox is safe when used correctly and in appropriate dosages.

Can Botox help correct a gummy smile?

Yes, Botox can effectively treat a gummy smile, which is when a significant portion of your gums shows when you smile. A small amount of Botox is injected into the upper lip's muscle, weakening its pull and limiting the lip's elevation when smiling. The result is a more balanced smile with less gum showing. Effects are temporary and last about three to four months.

Can Botox also be used for headaches?

While Botox is specifically approved for chronic migraines, some people report relief from tension-type headaches after receiving Botox. However, the evidence is less robust, and it's not officially approved for this use.

How does Botox work when injected into the trapezius muscle?

Botox injections in the trapezius muscle aim to relieve tension and pain, often associated with conditions like chronic neck pain or headaches. The trapezius muscle extends down the back of the neck and upper spine and is frequently subject to tension. When Botox is injected, it disrupts the nerve signals causing muscle contractions, which can provide relief from discomfort. It's generally considered an off-label use but has shown effectiveness in some clinical settings.

Can Botox reduce the appearance of smile lines?

While Botox is not typically the first choice for treating smile lines—also known as nasolabial folds—it can provide some improvement. Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement, whereas smile lines are usually static wrinkles that are visible even when the face is at rest. Some people opt for a combination of Botox and dermal fillers to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation around the mouth and lower face.

How can Botox in my armpits treat excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis?

Botox is an FDA-approved treatment for severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, which is the medical term for excessive underarm sweating. The procedure involves injecting Botox into the affected areas to block the neurotransmitters that stimulate sweat glands. By doing so, it can significantly reduce or even eliminate excessive sweating for up to six months. The treatment is generally safe and well-tolerated when performed by an experienced provider. As with any medical procedure, there are risks and potential side effects, so it's crucial to consult an experienced healthcare provider for a thorough evaluation and personalized treatment plan.

How effective is Botox for treating crow's feet around the eyes?

Botox is one of the most effective treatments for crow's feet, the lines that develop at the outer corners of the eyes due to repetitive facial expressions like smiling or squinting. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the small muscles around the eyes, specifically the orbicularis oculi, thereby smoothing out these lines. The results usually become noticeable within a few days of treatment and can last up to four months.

Can Botox be used to lift eyebrows or eyelids, and how does it work around the eye area?

Yes, Botox can be used to lift eyebrows and eyelids, offering a non-surgical alternative to more invasive procedures. By targeting specific muscles around the eyes that pull the brows and eyelids downward, Botox allows the opposing muscles to lift these areas, resulting in a more youthful, open-eyed appearance. Results are typically noticeable within a few days and last around three to four months.

Is it safe to use Botox during pregnancy?

The safety of Botox treatments during pregnancy is not well-studied. We tell our pregnant patients to wait until they give birth to restart their Botox regimen. Daxxify can last longer than Botox, allowing you to maintain your results longer into your pregnancy. Call or book a consultation to discuss a Daxxify treatment before you are pregnant. 

What is the difference between Botox vs fillers?

Botox and fillers serve different cosmetic and medical needs. Botox is primarily used to treat dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movement, such as forehead lines, crow's feet, and frown lines. It works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscles, causing them to relax. Fillers, on the other hand, are used to treat static wrinkles, add volume, and contour facial features. They work by literally "filling in" lines and wrinkles or adding volume to areas like the lips or cheeks.

Botox vs Xeomin: How do they differ?

Botox and Xeomin are both used to treat wrinkles and various medical conditions, but there are subtle differences. Xeomin is often referred to as a "naked" botulinum toxin because it contains no additives, potentially reducing the risk of developing resistance to the treatment. Both treatments offer similar efficacy and duration, but onset times can vary. It's important to consult with a healthcare provider to decide which treatment is more suitable for your specific requirements.

In Florida, what is the cost of Botox vs Dysport and Daxxify?

Botox and Dysport typically cost $10-15 per unit in Orlando. Daxxify entered the neurotoxin market in 2023, and Daxxify's wrinkle reduction results last about 6 months on average, compared to the 4 months that Botox and Dysport last. Daxxify requires more units and also typically costs $15-20 per unit. 

Our patients pay $12-14 per unit of Botox, Dysport, and Daxxify (depending on their membership and rebooking). Members can further reduce their cost to $11 per unit by pre-booking their next BOTOX, Dysport, or Daxxify treatment during their current appointment and keeping that time slot.
