The lasting industry standard
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 Dr. Sukkar to take years off your appearance and restore your youthful expression – without surgery.
What issues can BOTOX treat?
When performed with the artistic hand of leading plastic surgeon, Dr. Sukkar, one of the top providers of BOTOX Houston has available, can 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. 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.
An overview of
Your BOTOX Cosmetic injections will be performed in Dr. Sukkar’s soothing Houston office. To begin, you’ll sit in a comfortable reclining chair while Dr. Sukkar 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, Dr. Sukkar will numb the treatment area with cold compresses or a topical lotion, to ensure you are entirely comfortable throughout treatment. He 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 three to seven days, at which point your wrinkles will be dramatically improved, your skin will appear smoother and you’ll look naturally more youthful.
Dysport – the BOTOX alternative
At The Clinic of Plastic Surgery, we also offer Dysport, a neuromodulator similar to BOTOX. For all intents and purposes, Dysport generally produces the same effects as BOTOX and is used in the same primary treatment area—the forehead. In fact, the differences are so minute, it would require our esthetician’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

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 Dr. Sukkar, 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.
