If you have fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead that are bothering you, it may be time to consider botox. Botox cosmetic is one of the most effective anti-wrinkle solutions on the market today, and it’s the ideal treatment for those early wrinkles. Of course it’s important to first find out how much botox costs, and determine if you would be a good candidate.
How botox reduces fine lines and wrinkles
Botox cosmetic is a purified protein that can be used to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles i.e. frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet. Botox works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals to the injected muscles, thereby minimizing the muscle activity that causes expression lines to form.
There is virtually no downtime after botox, so patients are generally able to resume normal activities immediately after treatment. The results start to appear within 5-7 days, and last approximately 3-4 months.
How Much Does Botox Cost In Toronto?
The cost to have botox administered in Toronto ranges from $10-$15 per unit. The number of botox units needed will depend on the area being treated, and the desired results.
There are recommended doses of botox for each treatment area. Most patients need 10-25 units to treat frown lines, 10-20 units for forehead wrinkles, and 5-15 units to reduce crow’s feet. Consequently, patients may have to get anywhere from 25-60 units of botox, so the cost of treatment can range from $250 to $900. However, doctors often offer discounts to first time patients, along with other specials (learn more).
