Botox® is the original non-surgical wrinkle treatment. It offers incredible results without the need for more invasive procedures. Botox® is a versatile treatment that can be used to address many different aesthetic and medical concerns. If you are worried about wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, lips, or even hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), Botox® can help.
At Dr. Dina Eliopoulos’ Center for Plastic Surgery in Chelmsford, Botox® Cosmetic is administered with precision — and a personal touch. Dr. Eliopoulos cares about your reasons for wanting Botox® and makes sure your results fit those goals. She will work with you to administer just the right amount to give you the youthful look you want, without looking “overdone.”

What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Each day, the muscles in our faces contract and release whenever we smile, frown, or make expressions. Did you know that as we hit our 20’s, we are starting to lose collagen and elastin in our skin?
This loss of collagen and elastin in our skin over time, along with this repetitive muscle activity, contributes to the development of unwanted “dynamic wrinkles”. So even at younger ages, depending on our muscle activity, skin quality and thickness, and genetic make-up, we can begin to see these wrinkles forming in areas like our forehead, or between our eyebrows.
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein that temporarily relaxes the muscles we are trying to target, in order to soften the appearance of these dynamic wrinkles. As our muscles relax, you will notice softer expression lines. While we can’t prevent wrinkles from ever developing, continued Botox® use may slow down the process.
What are the Benefits of Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is known as a “lunch-time” treatment, which means it can be delivered in under an hour at the Center for Plastic Surgery in Chelmsford. Most patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the procedure. Patients who receive injections of Botox® Cosmetic can expect the following benefits:
- Smoother skin
- Little to no pain
- A fast, easy application
- A minimally-invasive treatment
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines

How much does Botox® cost?
Botox® is a highly personalized treatment, which means the approach, injection sites, amount of units, and anticipated results will vary based on your specific anatomy and desires.
If you are interested in learning more about Botox® Boston patients can begin with a consultation. Even before your consultation, when you call us to inquire about Botox, you will be able to speak with our Patient Care Coordinator. After discussing your concerns, she can provide you with information about Botox, along with a cost estimate for your Botox® treatment.
At your consultation, Dr. Eliopoulos or her team of nurse injectors will perform a full examination and then finalize the individualized recommended dose for you. This will come with a more detailed price for that treatment. You will also learn about great ways to save on future treatments, such as through the Allé rewards program.
Do Injectables hurt?
Injectable treatments are revered as quick, fast, and often virtually painless. Some may experience a pinching or pricking sensation during the injections, but no icing or topical numbing is required.
How soon will I see results?
You will typically start noticing the effects of your Botox® treatment within 3-7 days. By two weeks, you should be able to appreciate your full results. We like to see our new Botox® patients at this two-week period to see how you liked the treatment and if the dosing was appropriate. This way, we can ensure the best dosing and treatment going forward.
How long will results last?
For most patients, the results of a Botox® treatment will be visible for around three to four months. This can vary based on the severity of the wrinkles, your muscle strength, and anatomy, your genetic makeup. For best results and more consistent correction, most patients will be scheduled for follow-up treatments within this 3-4 month window.
