Botox® in Macon, GA
Patients who wish to eliminate frown lines from their brow area can undergo Botox® injections at the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, led by Dr. Joshua R. Groves, board-certified by the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Groves has helped men and women in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area look and feel their best through Botox® injections since 2009.
What is Botox®?
Also known as onabotulinumtoxinA, Botox® is an injectable filler that is designed to eliminate frown lines and forehead wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that are used for frowning. The injections give your skin a smoother, softer appearance for approximately six months, after which time treatment may be repeated.
Benefits of Botox®
The many benefits of Botox® include:
- Minimally invasive
- Long lasting results
- May be effective in preventing forehead wrinkles
- Can also be used to control excessive sweating or as an alternative treatment for migraines
Requirements for Botox®
Before having Botox®, Dr. Groves will collect your health history to ensure you do not have any allergies to medications. You should also tell Dr. Groves if you have previously had an allergic reaction to Botox® or any other dermal filler.
Is Botox® Right for Me?
Botox® can be an excellent choice if you:
- Wish to smooth forehead lines without undergoing surgery
- Are in generally good health
- Have realistic expectations concerning treatment
How Involved is the Botox® Procedure?
Botox® is one of the simplest cosmetic procedures, requiring only a series of injections into the forehead area. A typical appointment lasts less than 30 minutes, and you are free to resume your normal activities immediately upon leaving our office.
How Long is the Recovery After Botox®?
Some minor swelling may be present at the injection site for a few hours after treatment. You can use an icepack or take over-the-counter medication to eliminate this swelling; however, most patients find that doing so is not necessary.
How Much Does Botox® Cost?
The amount of Botox® needed to produce the desired results vary by patient, which is why it is not possible to provide you with an exact cost until after you have a consultation with Dr. Groves. During your consultation, we will discuss the cost, and go over our payment options to find one that best suits your needs.
Some procedures may be covered by medical insurance. Our staff is experienced in matters pertaining to insurance, and will work with your carrier to get you maximum coverage. In the event a procedure is not covered, we offer financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon™Credit . We will be happy to assist in filling out the necessary application, or you may apply on the CareCredit® website prior to your appointment. We work with SunTrust Bank to offer low, fixed interest rate loans to patients with good to excellent credit for all cosmetic procedures, and also accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard®, Visa®, American Express®, and Discover® Card.
