Dr. Channon has been treating patients using Botox injections for over ten years. For the most part, this was to treat blepharospasm, or other ocular muscle disorders. In addition, Dr. Channon has attended the Advanced Aesthetics training for Botox Cosmetic, to provide his patients with the best possible cosmetic improvement.
The FDA has recently approved the use of Botox for cosmetic use for glabellar folds. In this safe procedure, minute amounts of Botox are injected in to the muscles to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and folds. The Botox acts over the week following the injections, and persists for several months.
The procedure is performed in the office. The patient is able to immediately return to all normal activities. As with any procedure, there is the possibility of infection, allergy or mild bleeding around the injection sites.
The cost of the treatment varies with the extent of treatment and the amount of Botox used. Some patients require higher doses for optimal results. Our charge is $15.00 per unit used, with average treatments for "crows feet" requiring 15-20 units, and glabellar creases often needing 25-30 units or more. Smokers periorbital creases, bunny lines, or areas of the chin may require only a few units.
Some areas are not advised to be treated, such as centrally in the upper lids. However, areas of the brow, crows feel, and with caution areas around the mouth can be improved.
