As you’ve looked in the mirror, maybe you might have noticed and been bothered by horizontal forehead creases, vertical “frown lines” between your eyebrows, or perhaps “crow’s feet” radiating from the corners of your eyes. If you are not ready for plastic surgery, it is easy to refresh the face with BOTOX treatments. Our skilled injectors have restored a youthful look to the faces of many Fort Worth and North Texas women and men with BOTOX treatments. These simple injections can effectively reduce your facial wrinkles while maintaining your ability to make natural facial expressions. The goal of BOTOX is to improve your appearance, yet keep you looking like you. Unlike other injectable treatments, BOTOX is not a filler, BOTOX stops the muscles in the face from contracting. This keeps skin creases from emerging while letting you retain full facial movement. In this sense, the skin isn’t allowed to fold repeatedly to create a wrinkle. This quick, minimally invasive procedure requires no downtime and provides noticeable results that are proven to last up to 4 months.

BOTOX is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30 minutes. The depth, length, quantity and location of wrinkles varies for each patient. Therefore, the injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored during the procedure. The injection is given through a syringe to localized areas on the face. Patients will feel a small prick as the needle inserts through the skin, but any pain or discomfort is minimized with a cold compress.
What to Expect
Immediately following a series of BOTOX injections, there will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for a few hours. It is also recommended that patients keep their heads elevated for the first 8-10 hours. Results following BOTOX will become apparent within 4-7 days. About a week after treatment, patients will notice an inability to fully move portions of their forehead. With limited movement, wrinkles will cease to appear. The result is skin that appears smooth and soft.
