The Botox Microinfusion Facial is a very superficial microneedling procedure at SYMMETRY that deposits Hyaluronic Acid, proprietary Vitamin C and Peptides and small amounts of dilute Botox into the top layers of the skin, to create a smooth texture with reduced pore size. This technique produces a natural appearing outcome, without any of the tell-tale signs of traditional neuro-modulator injections.
HOW MUCH DOES A BOTOX MICROINFUSION FACIAL COST?
The Botox Microinfusion Facial combines several different treatment modalities in one thirty-minute session. We currently charge $299 for each session of Botox Facial, which includes the cost of the Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Peptides, Botox, and any numbing with topical cleansing needed while you relax and let SYMMETRY care for you.
HOW MANY BOTOX MICROINFUSION FACIAL TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Most SYMMETRY patients see great results from just one treatment that will last up to 3 months. The procedure may be repeated every one to three months. This beautiful facial does not replace cosmetic Botox treatment for wrinkles and facial/neck aesthetics nor traditional injectable Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation.
HOW DOES IT COMPARE TO OTHER TYPES OF MICRONEEDLING?
Botox Facial is different from traditional microneedling in that:
It not only improves the texture of the skin through the direct effect on the tiny needle punctures, but it also delivers specialized products through channels in the tiny, hollowed microneedles directly into the more superficial layer of skin that Skinpen/ PRP do not. The additional effect of the Hyaluronic Acid and Botox into the skin is what makes Botox Facial unique and exciting. The Botox Microinfusion Facial is able to target the exact depth of the skin we desire. This allows the products to be placed within the precise layers of the skin, where pores, sweat glands and skin integrity are, for precise treatment of these concerns.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN HAVING HYALURONIC ACID DERMAL FILLERS INJECTED FOR FACIAL REJUVINATION?
While the Botox Microinfusion Facial uses the same high-quality FDA-Approved Hyaluronic Acid that we inject to rejuvenate lips, lift cheeks, and fill in deep lines, you shouldn’t expect to see the same kind of changes as you would with those applications. When traditional Hyaluronic Acid dermal fillers are injected deeper into the tissues below the skin, they can restore volume. However, with Botox Facial, we’re placing the Hyaluronic Acid in very small “microdroplets” throughout the skin of the entire face to improve texture of the entire superficial skin layer. It’s the same product used in different ways to treat different concerns! If you want to restore, rejuvenate or add volume in your face in addition to improving skin quality, then dermal filler injections can be performed at the same time as a Botox Microinfusion Facial.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM HAVING BOTOX/DYSPORT INJECTIONS?
Botox/Dysport can be safely used to treat a variety of muscle causing aging or functional concerns including frown lines, forehead lines, neck bands, TMJ, migraines, enlarged masseters, gummy-smile and crow’s feet. With Botox Facial, we’re injecting Botox in very small quantities throughout the face’s superficial skin layer to improve tiny fine lines, contract pores and decrease oil production, sweating and redness. It will not relax muscles to prevent wrinkles the way that Botox injected deeper does. The Botox Microinfusion Facial is a skin tone rejuvenation technique. If you’d like to also relax deeper wrinkles in addition to improving skin quality, Botox/Dysport injections can be performed at the same time as Botox Facial.
IS A BOTOX MICROINFUSION FACIAL PAINFUL OR DOES IT REQUIRE DOWNTIME?
The Botox Microinfusion Facial is a very comfortable procedure, which is performed without the need for any type of anesthesia or numbing even though we have it available. We expect patients to be able to return to normal activities right after the treatment. You may notice a minor tingling sensation during the procedure. You may have immediate pink/red flushed skin that fades shortly after the procedure, similar to the flushing from a steam room/sauna. You may feel tightening or notice sheen to the skin. Results of improved skin texture, less perspiration, less oil production, and mild tone improvement start approximately day Five. Many patients love this therapy as a replacement to all facials, with or without, regular Botox or dermal filler therapies!
