What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved injectable drug that is known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the face. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator that temporarily blocks the nerve impulses that make facial muscles contract, eliminating the wrinkles and preventing existing wrinkles from becoming more prominent. Botox is an effective option for treating:
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Brow lines
- Forehead wrinkles
- Chin wrinkles
- Smile lines
What To Expect From Botox® Cosmetic
The injections process is not painful, and a topical anesthetic can be applied prior to the injections process to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. There may be some redness and slight swelling around the injection sites, but these issues will subside quickly. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities right away. Some may choose to lie down for an hour or so following the injection process.
Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic should be seen within about a week. You won’t see these muscles “freeze,” but you will see a natural appearance with less wrinkling. Continued use of BOTOX® Cosmetic long term also prevents wrinkles from deepening and getting worse. The results last anywhere from three to six months, depending on the patient and the continued use of the product.

Enhancing the Results of Your Botox® Treatment
Botox injections are commonly performed along with other facial rejuvenation treatments for more comprehensive results. Botox injections can be performed along with dermal filler injections as a way to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and noticeable facial folds all at once. Botox treatment can also be performed along with microneedling, IPL treatments, and chemical peels. Our team can go over the treatment options we offer and let you know which options can complement your Botox injections.
The cost of your Botox treatment in Houston will be based on the areas of the face being treated, the amount of Botox needed to provide the desired results, and other factors.
