BOTOX Cosmetic Uses:
Patients of Dr Messina
Why choose Dr. Messina of Messina Esthetic Medicine for Botox Injections?
I have come across a secret, in my opinion men respond to Botox injections better than women. It may be that women have followed skin care regimens most of their life while us guys consider a cap as complete protection. Almost every male I inject with Botox tells me they look years younger.
Botox Cosmetic Injections are one of the most requested treatments performed by Dr. Messina who has been injecting since 1988.
Botox Injections are administered by a fine needle that most patients describe as a light pinch. Many do not feel anything at all!
The results are noted in a few days and can last between 3.5 to 5 months.
How Much Do You Charge Per Unit of Botox?
This is a very common question and likely the wrong question for a prospective patient to ask. I will explain for persons new to Botox what a unit means. Medications are administered as doses we all know a baby aspirin is 80mg, well Botox and Dysport are administered in doses known as “units”.
The average woman requires between 20-50 units while men often require 20-70.
The better cost question would include:
Who is injecting the Botox?
How long have they been injecting Botox ?
Where and when did they receive their training ?
Do they use FDA approved Botox and not imported through foreign / Canadian mail order? Which may be the most important question.
Dr. Messina only uses FDA approved Botox provided directly from
