Dr. Levenson of Levenson Smile in the Worcester area understands the importance of not only beautiful teeth, but a beautiful face. When patients are struggling with fine lines and wrinkles, they can speak to a dental professional about Botox.
Botox is an injectable medication that is used by professionals to enhance one's natural beauty. When frown lines, forehead wrinkles, and folds between the eyebrows become persistent, it may be beneficial for patients to opt in on injectable treatment. Botox is made of botulinum toxin type A, which is shown to reduce muscle contractions and in turn, reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds on the upper third of the face. This medication has been used safely for many years as an anti-aging solution, and has been approved by the FDA for cosmetic enhancement of the face. It has also been used for many decades for medical conditions including cervical dystonia, overactive bladder, migraine headaches, and even excessive sweating (a condition known as hyperhidrosis).
Dr. Levenson can use Botox to provide patients with relief from migraine headaches as well as cosmetic enhancement. As a dentist, he has spent years providing precise injections to his patients for comfort and has now expanded his practice to include the benefit of cosmetic injections during dental appointments.
However, many patients who visit are concerned about the cost of Botox. In most cases, Botox can be extremely affordable. The cost of Botox is determined by how many units are used, as it is priced per unit. It can be difficult to provide patients with an accurate quote without a consultation appointment as some situations require more units than others.
To determine the cost of Botox accurately, Dr. Levenson of Worcester recommends patients schedule a consultation visit in his practice to enjoy a full evaluation. During this time, Dr. Levenson will be able to provide a more precise estimation of the cost of Botox for patients' specific needs and desires. This also provides patients the opportunity to speak with Dr. Levenson and ask any questions they may have regarding treatment.
