As the leading cosmetic injectable treatment, Botox® has become the treatment of choice for countless men and women around the world. If you are located in Portland or the neighboring areas of Maine, you can find Botox® treatments at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England.
What is Botox®?
Botox® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a cosmetic treatment that is injected into the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. Once injected, Botox® temporarily reduces the contractions of the underlying muscles so lines and wrinkles are diminished and smoothed. For many patients, this is the ideal way to eliminate signs of aging without surgery.
At the Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England, we are the #1 provider of Botox® Cosmetic in Maine! Our providers have been injecting Botox® for many years, and are the most experienced with the treatment.
In addition to being used as an anti-aging treatment, Botox® can be used for the treatment of migraines or hyperhidrosis, otherwise referred to as excessive sweating that affects the underarms.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
Your Botox® treatment at Cosmetic Enhancement Center of New England will depend on a number of factors. During your free consultation, we will discuss your treatment goals to determine the approach to your Botox® treatment that will work best for you.
Some patients may need multiple treatment sessions. We will consider these and other factors in order to provide you with the full cost of your treatment during your consultation. To make this and other services more affordable, we are proud to offer financing through CareCredit®.
Am I A Good Candidate for Botox®?
Botox® is a suitable treatment for men and women of all ages. If you are experience facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles or frown lines, you may be a good candidate for the Botox® treatment. Botox® may also be right for you if you suffer from hyperhidrosis or migraines. During your consultation, we can help you determine if Botox® is the best treatment option for you.
What is the Botox® Treatment Like?
Many of our first time Botox® Cosmetic patients are concerned about the level of pain with treatment. The injections with Botox® are very mild and feel like a small pinch. No numbing is needed, and the treatment itself is quick. However, we can provide a topical numbing solution if needed.
The number and exact location of your injections will depend on your treatment goals. A Botox® treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes to perform, which is why it and many other injectable treatments have become known as “lunch-time” cosmetic treatments.
Is There Any Downtime After Botox®?
There is no downtime or recovery period required after the Botox® treatment. Patients can come in, get treated with Botox® , and return to their normal activities the same day. You may notice some minor swelling or redness in the treatment area due to the injections, but these effects typically fade within a day or two of treatment.
When Will I See Results from My Botox® Treatment?
After the Botox® treatment, it usually takes about a week for the formula to take effect and the results to become visible. If you are receiving Botox® for hyperhidrosis, it may take a few weeks to notice the full effects. In any case, the results from Botox® typically last about four to six months. These results can be easily extended with maintenance treatments.
