Samantha Dempster of @thefamilyjewelsblog describes why she had her first Botox® treatment (at Project Skin MD).
Every now and then, we get to be a part of an important patient journey. These paths take all kinds of twists and turns and our part in the story is important to us; what an honour to get to share in what will hopefully become a confidence building, happiness inducing experience.
We’re excited and so touched that Samantha Dempster chose to share why she decided to have her first Botox® treatment – and we sure are glad she chose Project Skin MD. Brave girl.
We asked Samantha to share a little about what she learned through this experience:
Q: What does Botox do to your skin?
A: Botox is a good preventative measure as it helps to soften existing lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles. By doing so, you don’t allow deep wrinkle formation which means less anti-aging maintenance as you age gracefully. It is the most widely tested drug in the world and has been used safely on a wide range of medical and cosmetic conditions for over 30 years. It is also used at Project Skin MD® for the treatment of migraines and excessive sweating.
Q: How many units does the average patient get?
A: The amount of injections is dependant on the patient and their needs and goals. The average amount of units injected in patients wanting a preventative treatment is around 35 units however it varies with everyone’s facial features and desired outcomes.
Q: What is the cost for Botox per unit at Project Skin MD?
A: Botox at Project Skin MD is $12/unit.
Q: How long does it take to see results from the Botox treatment?
A: You typically see results in 7-10 days.
Q: Is Botox a quick treatment? Any downtime?
A: Botox is a quick treatment with minimal downtime.
Q: Do men also do Botox?
A: Yes! Botox is also popular with men, it’s not just a treatment for women.
