BOTOX: The world’s most popular cosmetic injectable

BOTOX is able to temporarily smooth facial lines and wrinkles, achieving a significantly smoother, more youthful-looking appearance. By stopping the signal from the nerves to the muscles that cause wrinkles to form, wrinkles aren’t only softened; they can also be prevented from forming at all.

How much does BOTOX cost?

The cost of BOTOX is based on the number of units or vials required for the intended treatment area, as well as the intended location and extent of the treatment. The typical cost ranges based on the number of units you will need. 

At Laser Cliniqúe, we offer BOTOX injections at $12.89 per unit for existing patients and $11.99 for new patients. Price-wise, that’s about as close to “discount BOTOX” as one can get—only without any of the risks associated with regular discount BOTOX (which often includes untrained injectors or diluted formula). We also regularly offer BOTOX specials (see below).

Actual patient testimonials

“Dr. Ataii is a true artist and uses superb aesthetic judgment to determine exactly what to do, and when. I have been getting various treatments from him for a decade now, and I am more than delighted with the results. I have done BOTOX, Juvéderm, Ultherapy, FX laser, and some laser hair removal, and people think I am 15 years younger than my passport says I am. The office is superb and well-organized and the staff is always helpful.” By Daniel

The Best BOTOX in San Diego: What sets Laser Cliniqúe apart

A Top 5 provider since 2005

Being one of the Top 5 providers in a 50-mile radius of San Diego for the past 15 years has set us apart. Truly mastering the art of injecting BOTOX for patients of varying anatomies takes a high level of skill and repetition.

A “less is more” approach to beauty

BOTOX Diamond injector Dr. P. Alexander Ataii uses the motto that less is more. “I strive to achieve natural results without ‘freezing’ the patient or making them look unnatural in any way,” he says.

Everything personal

Dr. Ataii invests considerable time into reviewing each patient’s anatomy and understanding how their muscles move to determine the exact amount of product required to make the patients look natural. 

As painless as possible

We use the tiniest needles and the gentlest approach in the industry to eliminate the pain and anxiety of having injections performed.

In love with looking natural

Our patients love their results and love how natural they look after treatment. Friends and associates notice the difference, but can’t tell they’ve had a cosmetic treatment — which is the goal. Patients often say they look like a better-rested and younger version of themselves.

Age in reverse

“I love treating patients with BOTOX because I get to catch up with them and their life every 3-4 months,” says Dr. Ataii. “My patients become like family because we share stories, and I see them aging in reverse over time.”

Medical uses for BOTOX

BOTOX is excellent for smoothing out wrinkles and delivering a more youthful appearance, but it also has some outstanding medical benefits as well, including the following:


BOTOX can ward off chronic migraines and headaches before they begin. Each treatment involves about 30 injections with tiny needles, in the shallow muscles of seven key areas of the head and neck. BOTOX is able to block “pain transmitters”, thereby relieving the patient of discomfort.


Unconsciously grinding or clenching the teeth, either asleep or awake, is known as “bruxism”. This habit can cause severe dental problems (loss of tooth enamel, chipped or flattened teeth, tooth sensitivity, etc.) as well as earaches, headaches, facial pain, and migraines. It can also cause enlargement of the masseter muscles, affecting the appearance of the lower face.

BOTOX injections can control bruxism symptoms. Small doses injected directly into the masseter muscles weaken those muscles sufficiently to stop teeth grinding and jaw clenching from occurring. This treatment can help reduce wear and tear on the teeth and minimize temporomandibular joint (TMD/TMJ) damage.


Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) is a condition that is estimated to affect 4.8% of people. Just as BOTOX blocks the signals that cause wrinkles to form, it can also block “sweat messages” that go to your brain, helping those with chronic sweating problems. Many different areas can be treated, including the underarms, palms, and feet. These treatments can last 3-6 months.

Downtime and side effects

One thing that patients love most about BOTOX is that it demands no recovery time. Some patients do experience side effects such as headache, nausea, temporary eyelid drooping, and/or bruising and numbness at the injection sites, but these are very rare. If you’re worried about any of these side effects, please bring them up during your consultation.


You will start noticing a difference in your facial muscles about 2-7 days after getting BOTOX injections, with the full effect taking up to two weeks. Results generally last 3-4 months. Some patients experience results even longer (4-6 months), while others see their results lasting closer to two months. It’s also important to note that first-time results tend to not last quite as long. Most patients prefer to have follow-up treatments every three or four months to maintain their results. Over time, the need to have lines and wrinkles routinely treated will diminish. In fact, some patients have BOTOX injections only once a year because they received it so regularly for awhile.


At what age should I start getting BOTOX?

As a general rule, if you begin to see lines and wrinkles that are visible when your facial muscles are relaxed, it’s probably time to start BOTOX treatments. For some, this may be as early as the mid-20s, while for others, the lines and wrinkles become evident in the mid to late 30s. The effects of aging appear at various times based on genetics, ethnicity, and environmental factors such as wind, cold weather, and sun exposure.

What is the Botox “Lip Flip”?

You may have heard of the BOTOX “Lip Flip”, a quick and simple treatment in which BOTOX is used to enhance the upper lip to get a youthful, sensual appearance. A less expensive alternative to lip enhancement than dermal fillers or surgery, the BOTOX Lip Flip uses a few units of BOTOX to relax the muscles there and turn the lip upward. Besides achieving a very natural-looking, slightly enhanced lip appearance, the BOTOX Lip Flip is also great for preventing fine lines around the upper lip.

What should I expect in my BOTOX consultation?

During your BOTOX consultation, you can go over all the areas you want to improve. You can discuss the options, your desired results, any questions or concerns you may have, and more. Before and after photos may also be taken. Your medical history will also be reviewed to ensure that BOTOX is a safe treatment for you. We want you to feel fully educated in all aspects of BOTOX before you decide to have it done.
