To diminish the effects of aging and to avoid lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from occurring on the forehead and upper face, Platinum Plastic Surgery in the Las Vegas, NV area is pleased to offer BOTOX to our patients. This facial rejuvenation treatment offers amazing results and is popular among both women and men. This injectable can make a dramatic improvement to dynamic facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressions and movement from the contracting muscles on the forehead. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic creases can still remain. This muscle relaxer is a purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these static lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly administered by plastic surgeon Dr. Chris Costa between the brows where the number "11" appears, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and throughout the forehead. BOTOX treatments are priced at $575 for 50 units. During your consultation, Dr. Costa will discuss how many units you may need to achieve your goals.
BOTOX Ideal Candidates
BOTOX injections are used for patients who hope to diminish and soften the visible look of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face in a nonsurgical way. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive anti-aging treatment even if static wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It is an effective noninvasive solution if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It is also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. Also, if you are over the age of 50 with moderate to severe skin laxity, you may be a candidate for a facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and it is meant to last for years. Platinum Plastic Surgery offers various facelifts, blepharoplasties, and brow lifts as effective options.
"Dr. Costa injected my tear troughs before my daughters wedding. Immediately afterwards my friends at work were complementing me that I looked well rested. I have had botox injections before, but Dr. Costa is the best. The office was beautiful and staff were super friendly. I felt like i was visiting the spa."- D.C. / Yelp / Sep 08, 2018

BOTOX Procedure Technique
BOTOX injectable treatments are available as an outpatient procedure right at Platinum Plastic Surgery. If it is your first time to visit our office in the Las Vegas, NV area to get BOTOX, we typically perform the treatment within the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Costa. You will be asked to make several expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us visualize where the injections should be placed. The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed with a cool compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you may get back to to your usual day as soon as you feel able.
What to Expect with BOTOX
Following the BOTOX injection, you are allowed to return to your regular schedule, although strenuous activities like exercise should be postponed for a minimum of a day. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can become swollen, bruised, or red for a couple of days, but you should not have any lasting or serious side effects. In the majority of cases, it typically takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make a follow-up appointment at Platinum Plastic Surgery to refresh your results.
