Botox® can be used to relax the muscles of the upper face to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Dr. Powell uses his gentle injection technique to achieve amazing, but natural-looking results.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Dr. Powell can inject these muscles with Botox Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows and on your forehead. Results typically last between 3 and 4 months.

How Much Does Botox® Cost?
There are several factors that will affect the cost of your treatment, and it will be difficult to establish a personalized estimate until you have an appointment with Dr. Powell. Factors that will affect the cost of your treatment include:
- The size of the treatment area: Some areas of the face require a greater number of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, which can raise your total treatment cost.
- The amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic needed for your specific treatment: Certain patients need BOTOX® Cosmetic in more than one area, or require more of the product to achieve their desired results. Repeated appointments and touch-up treatments can also add up.
Total treatment costs will be determined when you come to our office for a consultation. We believe strongly in patient education and will be completely upfront about your costs.
The number of units needed to treat each area depends on the severity of your wrinkles and your response to Botox. Some patients require more units to effectively smooth out their wrinkles while others require less.
