What is Botox®?
Botox® is a minimally invasive cosmetic injectable treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the upper third of the face. Made with an active ingredient called botulinum toxin type A, Botox® works by temporarily relaxing the muscle in the treated areas so they can no longer cause wrinkles by repeated facial expressions. Dr. Breister Ghosh and her team typically recommend patients receive Botox® to address any fine lines and wrinkles they don't like around their forehead, between their brows, and around their eyes. We encourage you to come in and spend some time with Dr. Breister Ghosh for your private consultation. She'll be happy to sit down with you, listen to your concerns, and develop a personalized treatment plan to help you get back to feeling your most confident.

What Can I Expect During My Botox® Treatment?
Your Botox® treatment will be performed by Dr. Breister Ghosh in our San Diego office. Before your Botox® treatment begins, you will be given an ice pack to numb your treatment area. This will ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, a series of Botox® injections will be carefully and strategically made into your desired treatment area, typically around the upper third of the face. Your entire Botox® treatment may take up to 15 minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After My Botox® Treatment?
Immediately following your Botox® treatment, you may experience mild swelling, tenderness, and bruising around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves within a day or two of treatment. If you are preparing for a special occasion, we recommend patients plan to receive Botox® about 1 to 2 weeks before the event since the results of Botox® are not immediately seen after injection. Botox® can take anywhere between 3 and 7 days to show ultimate results. After reaching this point, Botox® gradually wears off over a period of three to four months. In order to maintain your desired results, we typically recommend patients receive regular Botox® treatments every 3 to 4 months.
How Much Will My Botox® Cost?
The cost of your Botox® treatment will likely vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. To get a more accurate estimate of the cost of your Botox® treatment, we encourage you to schedule your private consultation with Dr. Breister Ghosh. For your convenience, we are happy to offer flexible financing options that allow you to pay for your procedure at your own pace.
