BOTOX® is one of the most exciting advances for treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face.1 BOTOX® is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied.
This relaxation lasts for a number of months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition.1
This is done in a way that does not alter your natural expression and features. It takes just a few minutes and can last between 4-6 months. Botox can also be an effective adjunct in the treatment of TMJ disorders2 and of excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis).3
- Safe – FDA approved
- Beautiful, natural results2
- Temporarily diminishes existing lines and stops new lines from forming1

How does Genesis charge for Botox?
Genesis MedSpa charges per unit of Botox injected. Some providers charge per area, but Genesis feels that charging per unit is more fair to our clients and, usually, results in a lower cost for our clients. Genesis providers will explain this in more detail to you during your consultation and will be able to tell you exactly how many units they plan to inject, and therefore, how much it will cost prior to your treatment.
