Frequently Asked Questions
What Creates Tension In The Trapezius Muscles?
The cause of trapezius tension varies from patient to patient. Daily life activities, strenuous exercise, heavy lifting, poor posture, and remaining hunched over a desk can all create neck, shoulders, and upper back inflammation. Whatever the cause, trapezius tightness can create discomfort for TrapTox Seattle patients.
What Does TrapTox In Seattle Cost?
For the standard 40 units of Botox injected during a Botox for Trapezius treatment, the price is $439 in total. The price can vary depending on the treatment plan and if more or fewer units of Botox are needed.
Are There Any Risks of Botox For Trapezius Seattle?
There are inherent risks that come with any cosmetic treatment, but the risks and side effects associated with TrapTox are minimal and rare. Swelling and bruising around the injection site are expected and fade within a few days. Other risks, such as muscle weakness, headaches, and nausea, are less common but typically reduce after the first week of treatment.
Does TrapTox Hurt?
All Botox injections come with a certain level of irritation. Botox for trapezius creates a quick prickle sensation as the injection is inserted. After that, the pain is minimal and barely felt. The provider can always use a numbing cream for patients worried about discomfort.
Do I Need To Prepare for My TrapTox Treatment?
While there is no significant prepping a patient needs to perform before treatment, the providers suggest a few recommendations to produce the best results. These include:
- Keeping the muscles as relaxed as possible before and after the treatment
- Refrain from exercise two hours before the injections
- Refrain from exercise for the rest of the day after treatment
- Avoid alcohol at least a week before treatment
- Avoid blood thinning medication (like aspirin) at least a week before treatment
When Will I See Seattle Botox for Trapezius Results?
It takes around a whole week to ten days for the results of TrapTox to take effect. During this week, the muscles will respond to the botulinum toxin, relax, and lose their tightness. Once the results take full effect, the muscles will feel loose, and any inflammation will be significantly reduced. Muscle mass will also begin to decrease, and a slender neck will begin to take shape.
How Often Will I Need TrapTox Treatment?
The injectors at Seattle Plastic Surgery recommend patients schedule a follow-up TrapTox treatment every four months to stay on top of their shoulder and neck tension. However, if a patient wishes to space the treatment out further, can schedule their follow-up appointment every six to eight months. Ultimately, patients can wait until they feel the tightness and tension return before scheduling another treatment. However, the effects will begin to fade slowly, so it’s recommended to schedule the subsequent treatment before the effects disappear entirely.
