BOTOX® is the Allergan® brand name for the toxin manufactured from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. BOTOX® has been used by physicians for quite some time, and it continues to offer measurable solutions to a variety of patient concerns. At Coeur d'Alene Plastic Surgery™, we use BOTOX® Cosmetic to reduce the visible signs of aging. Areas that are treated, typically, are the forehead, crow's feet around the eyes, and frown lines around the mouth.
BOTOX® is administered by Dr. Kuhlman-Wood, a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. It is injected using a fine needle, and does not require anesthesia as most patients report very little discomfort. Although complications are rare, receiving BOTOX® does carry risk. The risks and necessary precautions will be discussed in detail prior to your treatment to reduce your chance of complications.*
The Cost of BOTOX® Cosmetic
On average, expect to pay between $350 to $500 for each area treated. Coeur d'Alene Plastic Surgery™ offers financing through Care Credit, as well as reduced pricing through our Membership Plans. Together, these make BOTOX® treatments more affordable, especially if you consider follow-up treatments or if treating more than one area.
* As with all clinical procedures, individual results do vary.
