Botox in Evansville and Jasper, IN
Fine lines and wrinkles can be frustrating. Botox® is the most popular injectable treatment that is used to combat these tell-tale signs of aging. Botox® injections with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan at Flannagan Plastic Surgery could be the solution for all Evansville and Jasper, Southern Indiana and Northern Kentucky and Illinois residents who want a youthful appearance without extensive surgery.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is the most popular and widely-used injectable treatment. Using a very fine needle, Dr. Flannagan injects the solution underneath the skin. Acting as a temporary paralyzing agent, Botox® allows the muscles and tissues of the face to relax. The results include smoother skin, reduced wrinkles and fine lines, and a firmer appearance to the skin. Botox® filler is derived from a refined bacterium and is sometimes referred to as Botulinum toxin type A.
Benefits of Botox®
Using Botox® in conjunction with other injectable products can often achieve the desired youthful appearance without the need for more extensive surgery. There are other benefits including:
- Smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, and creases
- Increasing the radiance and firm appearance of the face
- Boosting self-image
Botox® injections can also help some patients with migraines or excessive sweating.
Is Botox® Right for Me?
If you’re unhappy with wrinkles or fine lines on your face, Botox® may be a solution for you. Anyone seeking a more youthful appearance may be a good candidate for injections. It may be appropriate as a preventative treatment for younger patients. Patients whose skin has lost some elasticity are still good candidates for Botox® treatments. If you think Botox® may be right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Flannagan.
What Is a Botox® Procedure?
Prior to any treatment, Dr. Flannagan develops a custom treatment plan for each patient's individual needs. He will identify the locations of the injections and the amount required to achieve the desired results.
Using a very fine needle, Dr. Flannagan injects specific amounts of Botox® underneath the skin. The number of injections during the treatment session is determined by the severity of the wrinkles present. Most patients see some immediate results with continued improvement over the following week as the Botox® settles underneath the skin. Results last up to three to six months in most patients.
How Long Is the Recovery After a Botox® Procedure?
Botox® recovery is relatively minimal. Many patients are able to resume all of their activities the same day as the treatment. Dr. Flannagan recommends patients try to sleep on the back and avoid excessively touching the face while the solution settles. The doctor may also recommend that you avoid rigorous exercise for a few days.
How Much Does a Botox® Procedure Cost?
The cost for your procedure will vary depending on the number of injections and the extent of the treatment. Some patients may need follow-up treatments more frequently than others. This will also impact the cost of your treatment. In most cases, plastic surgery treatments are not covered by insurance. The staff at Flannagan Plastic Surgery will ensure all of your questions about the financing of your treatments are answered. Most of our patients use a combination of the following to pay for their procedures:
- Personal or cashier’s checks
- American Express
- CareCredit® Financing
