Botox In KingwoodWhat is Botox?

Botox has the ability to relax muscles into which it is injected. This relaxation may be partial or complete, depending on the amount of Botox used and on the relative strength of the muscle into which it is injected. The relaxation produced by Botox can last up to 3-6 months

Which wrinkles can Botox treat?

There are two different types of wrinkles on the face: static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are present even with complete stillness and lack of expression on the face. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear or become significantly more apparent with facial expression. Botox is ideal for treatment of dynamic wrinkles of the face and is used to relax those facial muscles whose excessive action causes wrinkling of the skin. For example, the deep lines between the eyebrows (frown lines) are the most popular treatment sites.

Other areas which can be improved with Botox are the crow’s feet and the horizontal forehead lines. Because of Dr. Smith’s skill and experience, neckbands, certain lip lines, smile lines along the side of the nose, and droopy corners of the mouth may also be improved with Botox.

Who is a candidate for Botox?
Any person who wishes to minimize the aging process around the eyes and forehead region with minimal down time is an appropriate candidate for Botox injections. Botox is not recommended for women who are pregnant or are nursing.

What other cosmetic treatments may be combined with Botox?
One of the greatest combination treatments involves the simultaneous use of Botox and Restylane. With this combo treatment, an “instant face lift” may be achieved by using Botox in the brow and forehead region, and Restylane around the mouth, lips, and smile lines.

Does it hurt?
Typically no anesthetic is needed for Botox injections. A small amount of Botox is administered using a very fine needle. Most patients experience very minimal discomfort. Anesthetic creams and special cooling devices are available to increase your comfort.

How long will the results last?
Typically, it takes 4-5 days for the Botox to start to take effect, but it may take up to 2 weeks for its full effect. Results generally last between 3-6 months.
