The Benefits of Botox
- Posted on: Feb 3 2019
When most people think of Botox, they think of a “frozen” looking face that they’ve seen on certain celebrities. When Botox is injected by someone highly trained and experienced, the results are truly amazing. Botox works by temporarily weakening muscle activity, which will later prevent and soften wrinkles. There are so many cosmetic and medical advantages of Botox that many people may not know about.
Cost for Botox
Botox is an affordable cosmetic treatment that will soften fine lines and wrinkles. We charge $11 per unit for Botox at Utah Facial Plastics. The total cost depends on how many units are used to treat each individual patient. Allergan, the company that makes and distributes Botox, has an amazing rewards program that helps patients save. This program is called Brilliant Distinctions. It is free and very easy to sign up. We also offer in-office specials that can be combined with Brilliant Distinctions discount for maximum savings.

Most everyone would love to prevent fine lines and wrinkles before they even begin. Botox is a simple way to do just that. Starting Botox in your twenties or thirties will prevent those fine lines and wrinkles from forming and becoming deeper with age. Botox is recommend every 3-5 months, depending on how quickly it is metabolized by your body. Many patients come for Botox treatments twice a year, which is better than not doing it at all.
Patients are always surprised how quick their Botox treatments are. Botox appointments are usually around 10-15 minutes in length. By starting Botox at an earlier age, the recommendation for more invasive surgeries and treatments can be prolonged.
Botox lasts approximately 3-5 months, depending on the individual. This is an awesome advantage but most wish it had longer effects. If you are someone trying Botox for the first time, this is can be an advantage. If you don’t like it, it’s temporary and will go away. After seeing their results with Botox, most people love it and wish it lasted longer. A longer-lasting Botox is currently being studied and may be available in the near future.
Treats Medical Conditions
When you hear the word “Botox”, you most likely think about it in a cosmetic sense. Many patients do not know that Botox treats many medical conditions, such as a drooping brow, migraines, clenching and can reduce squinting/eye twitching. Another medical condition that Botox is often used for is Bells Palsy. Dr. Henstrom treats many of his Bells Palsy patients with Botox, which can be covered by insurance.
Botox is becoming increasingly popular with both men and women around the world. For more information about Botox, please call (801)776-2220 or contact us HERE.
