Signs of aging on the face can give the false impression of being tired or stressed all the time. It is normal to wonder what it would be like to wake up naturally with a more youthful and refreshed appearance. For individuals looking to rejuvenate their facial features, BOTOX injections may provide optimal results. BOTOX Cosmetic is a popular non-surgical solution for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles in the face. Here at Lotus Cosmetic Surgery Connecticut, our board-certified plastic surgeon – Dr. Amir Nasir – takes great pride in performing these injections himself and does not delegate these procedures to an ancillary staff member.

What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable neuromodulator that can reduce signs of wrinkles and fine lines on the face for a more youthful appearance. Overactive facial muscles can continuously contract and produce facial creases. BOTOX injections can temporarily prevent underlying muscle contractions to avoid deepening existing wrinkles and keep the skin smooth. For individuals who are concerned about appearing older or more tired than they actually are, BOTOX Cosmetic can be an ideal treatment option for their needs and aesthetic desires.
What Are the Benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX injections can provide a variety of aesthetic benefits while boosting self-confidence. More specifically, treatment can safely reduce the appearance of the following signs of aging on the face without the need for surgery:
- Fine lines
- Crow’s feet
- Furrows between eyebrows (glabellar lines)
- Drooping and sagging forehead skin
How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
During the initial consultation, Dr. Nasir thoroughly evaluates the face to locate where BOTOX Cosmetic is needed. To start the treatment process, he numbs the target areas to make sure that the patient experiences minimal to no discomfort. Then, Dr. Nasir gently injects BOTOX Cosmetic using a very fine needle to the desired locations. The whole session is completed in-office and usually takes 20 to 30 minutes depending on the areas being treated. Most patients are able to return to their daily activities and work with virtually no downtime. BOTOX injections may be supplemented with dermal fillers or done around the same time as other non-surgical procedures, such as chemical peels, for a more comprehensive rejuvenation.

How Long Do BOTOX Injections Last?
Results may be visible within 5 to 7 days and typically last for 3 to 7 months. We usually recommend patients to schedule touch-up appointments so that they can enjoy their anti-aging benefits for a longer period of time. Dr. Nasir can create a customized treatment plan if you would like to continue receiving BOTOX injections.
How Much Does BOTOX Cosmetic Cost?
The average cost for BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is in the $325 to $600 range depending on the area being treated. Here at Lotus Cosmetic Surgery Connecticut, we charge a set fee per facial area instead of counting how many units are needed for your treatment plan. This allows us to focus on addressing your concerns without you worrying about the number of units being used. After your consultation with Dr. Nasir, our team can provide you with a cost estimate of your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment plan and talk about the different financing options we accept. At our practice, qualified patients can arrange installment plans with low- to no-interest through CareCredit® – a reputable lending company that helps make treatment more affordable for our patients.
