Botox is excellent at providing a pain free alternative to cosmetic surgery of the face, especially the eyes, brow and forehead. One of the most compelling reasons to use Botox injections rather than cosmetic surgery is the price. The price of Botox injections are a fraction of the cost of surgical methods and has been highly successful in making brow lifts or eyebrow lifts affordable.
Botox treatment was originally formulated to help reduce the symptoms of various muscular problems such as the uncontrollable twitching of the eyelids. Botox works by inhibiting muscle contraction by blocking the neural pathway between the nerves and the muscle which means that even when a muscle or muscle group should contract, the presence of Botox block the treated muscles and all other muscles around the treated muscles contract normally.
The brow is held in position by upper and lower muscle groups that work together to keep each brow at a particular distance away from the eye. The upper group of muscles work together to pull the eyebrows up and the lower muscles pull the brows down. By inhibiting the lower muscles with Botox, the upper muscles take more control and lift the eyebrow upwards. An eyebrow lift using Botox is often referred to as the ‚ÄúBotox brow lift‚Äù.
Botox injections are measured in international units and Botox brow lift price will depend upon the number of units required to treat the area as well as the clinic used to perform the procedure. Generally speaking the number of units required for each brow is 4 to 6 units. The price of a Botox brow lift can start at around ¬£190 but be careful when comparing the price of Botox brow lifts because Botox is actually diluted by each physician. It is possible for clinics to dilute the Botox more to offer a very cheap price in the attempt to attract new customers. The only problem with over diluted Botox injections is that the results may not be as good as a standard dose and last for a shorter period of time. When comparing Botox brow lift clinics, it is important to ask for patient references that will be able to comment on the service the clinic provided, the quality of the results and how long the Botox brow lift lasted.
