PLASTIC AND NON-INVASIVE PROCEDURES IN DALLAS, PLANO, SOUTHLAKE, AND NEARBY FORT WORTH, TEXAS
Botox® is a popular treatment that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and deep lines, like those that appear in between the brows and around the eyes. It’s popular for women and men who want more youthful, refreshed, and vibrant appearances.
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved product made from purified botulinum toxin type A which relaxes muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines between eyebrows (glabellar furrows) by blocking nerve impulses. The effects are temporary but can last up to 18 months or longer depending on how often BOTOX® injections are administered.

How Does BOTOX® Work?
As you age, the repetitive motions that your facial muscles contribute to fine lines and wrinkles. Over time the wrinkles can become permanent, and they can be noticeable even if you’re not moving those muscles.
BOTOX® is the brand name for botulinum toxin. It’s a toxin that causes muscle weakness. When injected in very small amounts into your facial muscles, the muscles relax, which reduces the pull they exert on the skin. As a result, wrinkles relax, soften, and can even disappear altogether!
Four things you need to know about Botox:
- It takes less than two minutes for treatment, but it lasts three months or more if not crossed with another procedure.
- The results last 3-4 months.
- You should be able to see a difference in just one week, but it can take up to 2 weeks before you see your full results.
- Botox is FDA-approved and safe when properly applied.
What Can BOTOX® Do for You?
There are several lines on the face that can form over time. One of the most notable is the line that may appear between your brows if you’ve ever frowned or had an angry expression. You’ll find that this line has a deeper appearance as you get older, but botulinum toxin injections can reduce its depth or even eliminate it.
In short, Botox is the most popular way to combat wrinkles and help you get younger-looking eyes. It works on those wrinkles and lines that are caused by common facial expressions and removes them. The injection won’t work on wrinkles that are caused by loss of facial volume or skin laxity, that being said it can also help with excessive sweating.
Underarm Sweating (Also Known as Hyperhidrosis)
It is hot here in Texas (most of the time). You can constantly be perspiring and your clothes end up sticking to you like glue. If you’re anything like me, it’s hard to find a way to look youthful with all of the perspiration going on. Fortunately, there are ways for us, in Dallas, who want to keep looking young, even when we’re sweating profusely!
One option is Botox injections that go into the underarms; this will dramatically reduce sweat production and can be done by trained professionals at our office or another local provider without any downtime whatsoever. This procedure only takes about 5 minutes on each arm (not including drive time) and can last up to six months!
How Long Do the Results of BOTOX Treatment Last?
It’s different for everyone, but most people can expect their treatment to last anywhere from 3-6 months. That means you still need regular touch-ups every few months if you want to maintain your youthful appearance! And while it is not permanent, it does offer some pretty cool benefits: no downtime and no surgery scars. If you’re ready for something new with great results, this might be just what you’ve been waiting for so please feel free to contact us.
How Safe Is BOTOX?
BOTOX® has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for wrinkle treatment in the U.S., since 2002; it was safely and widely used in Europe and Canada for many years! If you’re concerned about safety, choose an experienced injectable specialist – someone who has performed BOTOX® procedures many times and has the experience.
What’s Involved in a BOTOX® Consultation?
You now know that Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive procedures for wrinkle treatment and we offer you a free consultation here at our Dallas office so you can learn more about all your options before making a decision on what will work best for you! There are many things involved with a botox consultation including discussing if this is the right option, asking questions, and voicing any concerns you may have before getting started. The good news is that there is no need for you to worry you can take your time deciding.
What’s Involved in Treatment and Recovery?
BOTOX® treatment takes less than 10 minutes and the serum is delivered via injection through a very fine needle, so it causes only a minimal amount of discomfort and no downtime and you are done.
-Fast & Easy Procedure (less than 10 minutes)
Once your treatment is over, you’ll be able to go about your day as usual, including going back to work. There’s no recovery period, and there are very few restrictions on your activity level. The only restriction is that for the first 24 hours, it’s best to avoid exercise and strenuous activity. This is to reduce the risk of BOTOX® spreading from the injection sites to other parts of the face.
