Considered the gold standard for the treatment of wrinkles, botox cosmetic can eliminate facial lines that emerge due to the natural aging process, exposure to the elements and other issues. In this way, the treatment allows our provider to take years off your appearance and restore your youthful expression – without surgery.
Before and After Photos
Delivering some of the best BOTOX Houston has to offer, we can help transform your facial appearance and treat a wide range of lines and wrinkles, while preserving your ability to move your face and express yourself naturally. More specifically, the procedure can:
- Eliminate wrinkles around the eyes. Wrinkles around the eyes form due to years of moving your muscles and making facial expressions. At our MedSpa in Houston Botox cosmetic is an excellent way to eliminate crow’s feet and other lines in this area.
- Reverse brow lines. As we age, wrinkles in between the eyes tend to form due to frowning, laughing, and other facial expressions. When this occurs, botox is extremely effective in improving the appearance of moderate to severe lines in this area, making it a terrific, non-surgical alternative to a brow lift.
- Treat forehead wrinkles. Wrinkles on the forehead are a very common occurrence as men and women age. Fortunately, botox can eliminate these deep lines as well, restoring a smooth and youthful forehead that you can still move with ease.
To begin, you’ll sit in a comfortable reclining chair while an aesthetician evaluates your facial anatomy to determine exactly where to place the injections to reverse any lines and wrinkles, while making sure you can still move your face with ease.
From there, an aesthetician will numb the treatment area with a topical lotion, to ensure you are entirely comfortable throughout treatment. The provider will then use a very fine needle to inject the BOTOX into the various underlying muscles that are causing your deep lines and wrinkles. In this way, the medicine will relax the muscles and your creases will improve. You can expect the entire appointment to take approximately ten minutes, at which point you will be free to leave the office and resume your normal daily routine. Your full results will emerge within 3 to 14 days, at which point your wrinkles will be dramatically improved, your skin will appear smoother and you’ll look naturally more youthful.
At The Clinic of Plastic Surgery, we also offer Dysport, a neuromodulator similar to BOTOX. For all intents and purposes.
Dysport produces the same effects as BOTOX and is used in the same treatment areas. In fact, the differences are so minute, it would require our aesthetician’s expertise to determine which one is best for you. In some cases, she may even use each in two slightly different areas, allowing you to get the best treatment for you. In addition to the forehead, Dysport can be used to treat the following:
- Worry lines
- Frown lines
- Brow asymmetry
- Turned-down mouth corner
- Chin dimpling
- Excessive underarm sweat
Your entire Houston BOTOX appointment will take only a few minutes, and you will be able to return to your normal routine as soon as you leave our office. During treatment you will recline comfortably in a chair while your aesthetician assesses your facial anatomy. They will carefully determine the location of each injection to treat your concerns while maintaining your ability to move your face easily.
Next, your Houston Med Spa aesthetician will numb the treatment area with a topical numbing cream or cold compress to ensure you are comfortable throughout the injection process. Lastly, they will inject the BOTOX solution into the targeted muscles that are causing your wrinkles. As these muscles relax, your fine lines and wrinkles will fade away for a smooth and lifted look. You can expect your results to develop over three to seven days, at which point you will see a significant and natural-looking improvement in your appearance.
If you’re ready to learn more about BOTOX & Dysport, we invite you to schedule a consultation at The Clinic for Plastic Surgery today. During your private meeting in our Houston plastic surgery office, we will carefully assess the cosmetic imperfections you’d most like to address, before creating a custom treatment plan designed to sculpt the exquisite appearance you deserve.
is botox expensive?
Botox is the industry standard, providing patients with a minimally invasive, effective procedure. Perfect for patients seeking a more “natural” look, plus its a fraction of the price of a surgical facelift!

BOTOX is absolutely safe. It’s been used to treat a variety of conditions for over a decade, and is now FDA-approved to temporarily treat lines and wrinkles in individuals between the ages of 18 and 65.
how can i avoid the “frozen” look?
When patients appear frozen after BOTOX, it’s because the injections weren’t performed properly. When you have your injections performed by an aesthetician, you will not look frozen or as though you’ve had work done. You’ll simply appear naturally more relaxed and refreshed.

There are very few side effects associated with BOTOX Cosmetic. The most common one is minor bruising at the injection site, however it will disappear very quickly. In the meantime, the bruising can be easily concealed with makeup.
