Botox in Rhode Island is the most common minimally invasive procedure performed in the United States, with over 6 million procedures per year.
If you are wondering why some people never seem to age, the answer is probably Botox injections. Botox not only erases your current wrinkles, but also assists with wrinkle prevention if started at an early age.
Botox is simple and affordable. Its uses include cosmetic treatments to the face and neck, control of excessive sweating and the treatment of migraine headaches.
What is Botox?
Botox is a prescription medication that contains onabotulinumtoxinA, which reduces muscle contractions, leading to less wrinkles and fine lines.

Is there anything I can do to reduce bruising during my injections?
Patients should try to avoid fish oil, flax seed oil, multivitamins, NSAID’s such as Ibuprofen and alcohol (including beer wine and liquor) at least 3 days before injections. You should consult with your physician about stopping aspirin, coumadin or other blood-thinning medications. These medications increase the risks of bruising and should be stopped about 7 days before your injections if possible.

When would I see results? Most patients start to see results within the first 3 days of being injected. The full results will be seen in 2 weeks. Patients should try and wait a full 2 weeks before deciding if more treatment is needed.
Are there any post-procedure instructions? Patients should not lie down, workout, or wear constrictive headgear for the first 4 hours after receiving injections.
Do I need to follow up after I receive injections? Yes. As a new patient the single most important thing to me is that your injections go well and you love the results. Unlike a haircut, results are not seen immediately. Full results from Botox are not seen for 2 weeks. Dosages and expectations vary from person to person.
How long will my Rhode Island Botox injections last?
Clinical studies with patients receiving 20 units of Botox Cosmetic in the glabella area had an average duration of 3 months. Although duration can vary anywhere from 2-6 months conservative patients using less units will have a shorter duration of effect.
What if I do not keep doing injections, will my wrinkles get worse? No! During the period of time you had your Botox you were not contracting your facial muscles, so after your Botox has worn off, you may still have residual benefits and softening of the lines. This is why Botox can also be preventative.
Why are your Botox prices so much lower than other clinics? Simply Injectables keeps its overhead to a minimum and passes a discounted price on to its clients.
Why should I choose Botox cosmetic over Dysport and Xeomin? All are OnabotulinumtoxinA. It is the preference of this provider through extensive use of all products that Botox cosmetic is superior when it comes to longevity.
Other products can be administered based on a patient’s request.
