Botox® is an FDA-approved treatment to temporarily freeze muscle movement. Botox® is most commonly used in the forehead, between the brows, and crows feet, however, we also perform Medical Botox® for Migraines, Hyperhydrosis, and TMJ at Catalyst! 

Botox® works by targeting contracted muscles at the root of specific wrinkles and lines. This temporarily paralyzes those tiny muscles, causing the skin to relax. The end result is smoother, younger looking skin.

At Catalyst, health comes first, beauty comes second. Before your first injection experience you will visit with one of our experienced physicians on staff about general medical history to see if Botox is the best option for you. Our patients safety is so important to us, so we like to talk about everything health-wise before moving into beauty. This ideal ensures that the treatments you receive will actually be the most beneficial to you.

After visiting with one of our medical providers, your injection specialist will walk through pricing, treatment options, results, downtime, post care and more. Once we’ve created a custom treatment plan, we’ll continue with injections! The injections take about 15 minutes or less, 

Unit cost: $13/unit. Session time: approximately 15 minutes.

The number of units a patient needs per treatment depends on their age, wrinkles, areas wanting to treat, and more. Patients can range from 20-70 units per treatment! Our injectors will work with you and your budget to create your custom Botox treatment plan.

The injections themselves are generally relatively low on the discomfort scale, though some patients do report a “pinching” or “bug bite” sensation during the treatment. If you are concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

According to Allergan’s (maker of BOTOX®) clinical study information, possible side effects include dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, neck pain, blurred vision. For the full list of side effects please thoroughly review Allergan’s important safety information section on their website.

After your Botox treatment—which, again, is so quick that many patients can schedule their appointment over a 15 minute lunch break—you won’t see immediate results. The Botox injections block the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine, which is what produces the muscle activity causing the wrinkle—but it may take some time for enough receptors to be blocked to translate into a diminished wrinkle. With that said, you should start to see results within a few days after your treatment, with continuing results up to 30 days after treatment.

It’s important to emphasize that the effects of these injections are temporary, so if you like the results, you will need to schedule another appointment in two to four months to maintain results!

Because it does not require surgery and because there is no recovery time, Botox Cosmetic is a very accessible treatment. But it’s not for everybody and it can’t do everything. Therefore, at Catalyst, we look for the following in candidates for Botox Cosmetic treatment:

  • You have wrinkles around your eyes, brow, or mouth
  • You are not pregnant or nursing
  • You do not have allergies to Botox or have had an allergic reaction to other botulinum products
  • You do not have nerve damage or other nerve conditions
  • You have and maintain realistic expectations

During your initial consultation, you should be prepared to discuss your medical history, including any medications you are taking. This is also the time during which you will determine how you want to look and an appropriate treatment plan needed to achieve that look.

Thought that Botox was only for women? Think again! Botox for Men, also called “Brotox” is becoming more popular here at Catalyst!
