Botox® in Philadelphia, PA
One of the most common non-surgical treatments among our patients in Philadelphia, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, and other nearby areas in Pennsylvania is Botox®, a dermal filler renowned for its ability to smooth forehead wrinkles. This procedure is skillfully performed by board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Raymond D. Jean of Main Line Plastic Surgery.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a type of dermal filler containing botulinum toxin A, a substance that reduces forehead wrinkles and brow creases by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in that area. The result is a smoother, younger-looking upper facial area without the need for surgery or downtime.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® could be the right solution for you if you have moderate forehead or brow wrinkles, yet are not quite ready for a brow lift procedure. You may also desire Botox® just before an important event such as a class reunion or wedding.
Planning your Botox® Treatment
The only planning you need to do is to set aside approximately one hour or so in our office. There could be other precautions based upon your health history, if so, Dr. Jean will notify you of any additional steps to take before coming in for Botox®.
How is Botox® Performed?
Your forehead area will be cleansed with an antiseptic cleanser before Botox® is administered. Typically, injections are given in multiple locations to ensure very smooth, consistent results. The amount administered in each area will depend on the degree of wrinkling and requires a very precise calculation on the part of Dr. Jean. *His skill and experience ensures you achieve the best possible results from your Botox® procedure.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Philadelphia?
Medical spa procedures such as Botox® are highly customized, meaning that a number of variables are used to calculate the price. In addition to payment through cash, personal check, and major credit/debit cards, we also accept CareCredit® financing. CareCredit® works like a credit card, offering low-interest rates and easily affordable payments to help you afford Botox® on your terms.
What to Expect* after Botox®
*Within a few hours, you will notice your forehead muscles becoming tense, at which time your skin will flatten and smooth. *Any wrinkles above your brow line will then seem to virtually disappear. You can expect to maintain your final results for around three to six months.
Recovering from Botox®
Moderate swelling or redness near any of your injection sites is normal and should go away on its own within a few days. You can apply a cold compress to help speed up the process, or take an over-the-counter medication such as Aleve® to help you manage your discomfort and reduce swelling.
