Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed the aging process starting under your eyes (Crows Feet) or deep lines between your eyebrows? As distressing as this may be for some, approximately eleven million people found the simple solution that is doing wonders in such a short period of time. BOTOX® Cosmetic brings a new sense of confidence to women and men all over the world. As one of the simplest, surgery free treatments no wonder why so many have flocked to enhancing their looks without the worries of recovery time. As simple as it was for them, it is just as simple for you. Brought to you by Serenity Medical Health & Beauty Spa, we introduce your fountain of youth at a very affordable cost. Let’s break down the basics first so you understand everything BOTOX® Cosmetics will do for you.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injected medication that is administered by our professional nurse injector. Ideally, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into facial muscles around your eyes and between your eyebrows (11’s)- which aids in the reduction of aging signs with immediate results. The medicine within the injection blocks off nerve impulses, which in return reduces the muscle activity that causes any moderate to severe lines from forming in the target areas.
The ideal age for injections is between 18 to 65 years of age. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not recommended for children under the age of 18.
Am I a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Whether you a someone who happens to notice any starting signs of aging, looking for a boost of overall confidence, or simply just interested in learning more about the many benefits from a series of treatments, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be for anyone that is within the recommended age. If you are interested in learning more about BOTOX® Cosmetic, we invite you to make an appointment for a complimentary consultation with our professional nurse injector at Serenity Medical Health & Beauty Spa.
Do not take BOTOX® Cosmetic if you have experienced any of the following:
Allergic reactions to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic. Your trained healthcare professional will be able to provide you with a list of ingredients prior to treatment.
Have ever had an allergic reaction to any other botulism toxin product such as Myobloc® or Dysport®.
Currently have any kind of skin infection at the injection site prior to treatment.
Is BOTOX® Cosmetic for just women?
Absolutely not. BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to treat aging lines or target areas on both men and women alike. In fact, roughly 5-6% botox procedures are done on men in the United States every year. In addition to men revving up their confidence with BOTOX® Cosmetic, it has become more and more popular with men due to the non-invasive in and out procedure, making it convenient. If you are a male looking for a confidence boost or just eager to treat any aging signs, feel free to contact our trained medical staff of Serenity Medical Health & Beauty Spa to schedule a consultation today.
What should I expect to pay for treatments?
BOTOX® Cosmetic varies in pricing but is a relatively inexpensive anti-aging treatment with great satisfaction. At our medical spa, our BOTOX® Cosmetic starts at ONLY $11 per unit, which is around $220 per area.

Are there any precautions I should know about?
As with any esthetic procedure, there can be side effects that you should know about prior to receiving treatment. Before your treatment, our healthcare professionals will go over everything from start to finish and review all of the possible side effects so that you are properly prepared. If you notice any side effects occurring after your treatment, reach out to us immediately.
As most would think frown lines are due to age, they can actually occur in anyone at any stage during their lives. Frown lines naturally occur due to a person’s facial expressions. Frown lines, specifically, are caused by repeated forehead movements. These stubborn lines can simply be fixed, regardless of severity by using Dysport– a neurotoxin in the same class as Botox cosmetic.
How does Dysport work?
Over time, as we use our facial muscles for all our expressions, we notice permanent lines or wrinkles beginning to form. Dysport is commonly known to treat specific areas such as the vertical lines between your eyebrows that look like “frowning” lines or “crow’s feet” that stamp the corners of the eyes. Dysport is a medication similar to Botox cosmetic that stops the movement of the muscles that cause these distressing lines and wrinkles. The onset of action is generally within 2-5 days, shortly thereafter you will notice that the lines begin to fade.
The treatment procedure generally takes about 15-20 minutes. Treatment is temporary and should only be done once every 90 days per treatment area. For more information on your treatment plan, feel free to speak to our skin care professionals at Serenity Medical Health and Beauty Spa.
Can anyone use Dysport?
Since Dysport is used to treat fine lines that are caused by our facial expressions over time, it can be used on both men and women alike. There are many fillers and injections on the market that do a variety of things. Choosing the right treatment plan to reduce these fine lines and wrinkles can be challenging for many. At Serenity Medical Health and Beauty Spa, we are here to help you choose the right treatment plan to help you achieve your personal goals. If you notice problem areas that are starting to become a concern, contact us today to see if Dysport is the right treatment plan for you.
What should I expect to pay for my treatment plan?
The cost is similar to the cost of Botox cosmetic. Galderma the distributing pharmaceutical company has a rewards programs, so you can always earn points with every treatment through the Aspire Points Program.
Are there any precautions I should know about with my treatments?
Just like any other medication or injection, there are always going to be side effects you should be made aware of. If you start to notice signs or have any symptoms, feel free to contact us immediately. Below are the most common side effects that have been reported:
– mild pain around the injection site
– dizziness or mild nausea
– mild headaches
At Serenity Medical Health and Beauty Spa, our skin care professionals will go over everything with you during your consultation if you have additional questions or concerns.
