In Boston, Wellesley, Natick, Framingham, and throughout the area, BOTOX patients trust Dr. Christopher J. Davidson for beautiful, natural-looking wrinkle reduction with this popular injectable. His professional skill, coupled with the remarkable efficacy of the product, have helped make BOTOX one of our most requested options for nonsurgical enhancement.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
The active ingredient in BOTOX is a purified form of the protein botulinum, which effectively relaxes the muscles into which it is injected. Without the contraction of these muscles, the skin lays flat and smooth. These wrinkles caused by facial movement are called dynamic wrinkles, and you likely know them as crow’s feet, frown lines, or “elevens.”
BOTOX and other neuromodulators are distinct from fillers, which physically add volume beneath lines and wrinkles to smooth their appearance.
BOTOX is priced per unit at our practice in the Greater Boston area. The actual cost for a treatment can vary quite a bit between patients, depending on the location of the injections and the severity of the condition being treated. Dr. Davidson discusses cost with you during your consultation to ensure you have a good idea of what to expect.
Its innovative mechanism of action allows BOTOX to treat other conditions caused by overactive glands or muscles, including excessive sweating. Called hyperhidrosis, this condition can be embarrassing and difficult to manage, even with prescription-strength antiperspirants. When injected into the underarms or palms, BOTOX can significantly reduce sweat production for long-term, manageable dryness.

Generally speaking, the ideal BOTOX patient is one who is in overall good health, typically between age 20 and 70, understands the possibilities and limitations of the treatment, and also has a good idea of the results he or she would like.
BOTOX offers benefits to both women and men who want to treat the following common concerns:
BOTOX treatments often last 3-4 months. Results depend on how much BOTOX is used and the treatment area. Dr. Davidson recommends continuous touch-up treatments to maintain your results.
Dr. Christopher Davidson's patient first approach to aesthetic medicine means that every decision he makes is aimed at achieving the optimal outcome for the patient. This is apparent, not just in the beautiful, natural-looking results he creates, but also in the compassionate care he delivers through every step of the process.
BOTOX Cosmetic is rapidly gaining popularity among men in the Boston area. That’s because they have discovered the role BOTOX can play in keeping them looking refreshed and attractive. Dr. Davidson has an excellent understanding of the unique characteristics of the male face, as well as how men’s aesthetic preferences differ from those of women. In his experience, Dr. Davidson has determined that many men prefer to look like well-rested, relaxed versions of themselves. For male patients, it’s not always about looking as young as possible. Instead, it’s often about simply looking their personal best in an age-appropriate way.
In an effort to provide truly customized wrinkle treatment, we also offer XEOMIN® and Dysport® – other neuromodulator products that are often called “cousins” to BOTOX. Each is based on the botulinum protein, but their formulations differ slightly and can be used for different effects. Dr. Davidson will help you determine which product is best suited to your needs.
I thought Dr. Davidson was fantastic, as was the staff in total. He was very thorough and focused on assisting me with my decisions. I would recommend your office to anyone interested in a cosmetic procedure.” N.G.
Each injectable patient first consults with Dr. Davidson to ensure he or she is an appropriate candidate for treatment. Injections are performed by Dr. Davidson for your optimal safety and satisfaction.
During a typical BOTOX appointment, Dr. Davidson begins by cleansing your skin. You may be asked to make various facial expressions in order to help your injector visualize where to administer the product. He then performs a series of injections, each of which only lasts a moment. Many patients liken the sensation of the injections to a quick pinch.
Although it’s not uncommon to have redness or swelling at the injection points, you should be able to return to your normal daily routine after your appointment. The results of your BOTOX treatment will take several days to fully develop, with your ultimate results appearing over the course of a week. Whether you had BOTOX to treat wrinkles or excessive sweating, you can count on your results to last for 3 or 4 months.
A. Many of our patients opt to undergo BOTOX Cosmetic injections and dermal filler injections in the same visit. Dr. Davidson offers a selection of today’s most popular fillers, including JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, and Restylane®. In fact, this approach produces such remarkable results, it’s called a liquid facelift.
A. In the hands of a skilled injector, BOTOX produces very natural-looking results and does not inhibit your normal range of facial expressions. Dr. Davidson is a Harvard-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon with superior knowledge of facial anatomy and the use of neuromodulators. He has performed thousands of injections for countless satisfied patients.
A. Yes, BOTOX can work to temporarily lift and soften lines in the midface region. When performing a nonsurgical liquid facelift, I combine BOTOX with dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM® to achieve a lifted and contoured effect. During your BOTOX consultation, I will make a recommendation on the appropriate treatment for your needs and goals.
A. At my Boston plastic surgery practice, I often use BOTOX to lift the corners of the brows to improve symmetry and restore a more balanced, pleasing look to the upper face. BOTOX will not have the same effect as a surgical brow lift procedure, but it is effective at creating subtle changes to the forehead and brow alignment to improve and soften your appearance.
