Botox ® is a cosmetic injection that can bring a dramatic difference to your face and provide a more youthful appearance. The active component is Botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that relaxes stressed or overworked facial muscles that contribute to facial wrinkles and tend to make one look old, tired or dull. Our board-certified plastic surgeons offer this anti-aging treatment at our plastic surgery centers in Houston and The Woodlands, Texas. Patients undergoing this cosmetic procedure benefit from a refreshed and rejuvenated look.

Benefits of Botox
Botox treatments are fast, virtually painless, and minimally-invasive and can:
- Improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles
- Rejuvenate and freshen the facial appearance
- Reduce forehead lines and creases
- Eliminate frown lines
- Reduce the appearance of a gummy smile
- Improve the appearance of necklines and neck cords
- Minimize chin wrinkles

- Help prevent chronic migraines
FDA-approved Botox treatment is safe and easy to administer. When you come for a consultation, our surgeon injector will identify the areas that can be improved with the injections and explain the extent to which these areas may be improved. Botox treatment takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia, but we can provide a topical numbing cream for the treated areas. Botox is performed as a convenient outpatient procedure.
Botox takes approximately three days to see initial results. If any touch-up injections are needed, they are typically performed two weeks following the initial appointment.

FAQs About Botox

What Treatments and/or Procedures Can I Combine With Botox?
What Are The Side Effects of Botox?
Botox has been clinically proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles as well as a variety of other medical conditions. While rare, Botox can cause side effects such as bruising, swelling and redness at the injection site, as well as flu-like symptoms, headache, neck pain, trouble swallowing, and muscle weakness. Even rarer side effects include allergic reactions.
What’s The Difference Between Botox, Xeomin, and Dysport?
These are all clostridium botulinum or very similar toxins used to treat fine lines and wrinkles and other medical conditions like cervical dystonia. Xeomin is typically used to treat glabellar lines (frown lines), while Botox and Dysport have a wider range of medical use, including blepharospasm, chronic migraine, primary axillary underarm hyperhidrosis, upper limb spasticity, urinary incontinence, in addition to treating glabellar lines.
Who Is a Candidate For Botox?
Candidates for Botox are individuals looking to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant, as well as those who have had an allergic reaction to any of the ingredients in Botox should not have this injection.
