Who should perform a Botox procedure?

In the United States, patients who seek treatment through Botox injections would visit plastic surgeons, cosmetic surgeons or dermatologists. However, doctors in other fields are also qualified to handle the injection of Botox provided that they have the know-how and the experience to treat any complications which may arise from the treatment. Common complications include the droopiness of the eye and the face. Doctors who administer Botox injections should have the knowledge and the medication to handle these complications in case they occur.

Duration of Results

The results achieved through Botox injections typically last for about six months and following that, the treatment has to be repeated. Once Botox is injected, it will take effect and results will appear anywhere between one day to one week.

In general, when a patient opts to get treated by Botox injections, he or she is injected with 40 to 50 units of the toxin. For patients who seek treatment for their forehead areas and a frown appearance, the same amount of Botox is injected. A typical Botox vial contains around 100 units.


Unlike many other cosmetic procedures and surgeries, undergoing a Botox treatment does not entail any type of recovery period. The only visible effect from a Botox treatment is the tendency for some patients to develop black and blue coloring in the treated areas. Nevertheless, since getting a Botox shot is an in-office treatment, patients are allowed to go home immediately following the treatment.


The cost of a Botox treatment regimen depends on what the patient wants. In general, the cost of getting Botox injections can range from $250 to $1,000 depending on the amount of treatment desired by the patients and the number of units injected to achieve this desired result.
