Trusted Cosmetic Injectable Treatments
Injectable neuromodulators such as Botox® and Dysport® products come from a purified version of the botulinum protein, which temporarily blocks the connection between the nerves and the facial muscles, resulting in a softening of facial lines. We strive to give you a natural improvement that will have you feeling and looking refreshed and renewed.

What are Injectable Neuromodulators?
Cosmetic or Therapeutic injections of botulinum toxin, commercially known as Botox or Dysport are commonly used to temporarily reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is a quick, non-invasive treatment that will smooth facial lines. This relieves a stressed or tired look, providing a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. Book an in-person consultation to chat about Cosmetic or Therapeutic Botox and how it can improve your natural beauty.
How will it benefit me?
Sun exposure, aging, and repeated facial movements such as smiling, squinting, or frowning, eventually lead to undesirable fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. Injectable botulinum toxin products like Botox and Dysport deliver a quick and easy way to look naturally younger and more rejuvenated without a lengthy recovery period. This anti-wrinkle treatment is most commonly used to smooth and prevent frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
And how much Injectable Neuromodulator will I need?
The amount of injectable botulinum toxin you’ll need depends on several factors including:
area being treated
cosmetic or medical purpose of treatment
strength of facial muscles
depth of wrinkle/crease
face shape and size
A consultation will answer all your questions and develop an individual treatment plan specific to your needs. Here’s the recommended units needed to treat common areas:
Frown or Glabellar Lines: 15-35 units
Crow’s feet: 6-15 units per side
Forehead lines: 10-30 units
Eyebrows: 2-5 units per side
Nasalis “Bunny lines": 5-10 units
Upper lip lines: 4-8 units
Smile lift: 3-6 units
Dimpled chin: 2-6 units
Marionette lines: 2-8 units
Gummy smile: 2-4 units
What should I expect after a treatment?
After getting injections, you should be able to pick up right where you left off in your daily routine. The side effects associated with neuromodulator injections are relatively mild and may include bruising, soreness, and swelling around the injection area. When performed by our well trained team, the injections themselves are associated with minimal pain.
When will I see the results of the treatment? How long will it last?
In general, you can see the effects as early as 3 to 4 days after an injection. Most patients will see results within 10 to 14 days, but should wait a full 14 days to see the maximum results. Results will vary, but will generally last 3 to 4 months.
What is the cost?
The cost is $10/unit.
What about follow-up appointments?
At Rise Medical Aesthetics, we are committed to ensuring that you are satisfied with your treatment results. A follow-up appointment scheduled 2 weeks after your injection is recommended to assess your results.
We are here to provide any fine touch ups if required. Please note during the consultation your provider will recommend a suggested amount of units based on their assessment. It is recommended not to go under this amount as you may find yourself wanting additional treatment after 2 weeks.
We are happy to make fine adjustments up to 5 units at no additional cost. Over and above this amount, the touch up will be charged at the regular rate of $10/unit.
