What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Botulinum toxin type A is a naturally occurring protein that causes muscle paralysis. BOTOX® is made from purified botulinum toxin type A. 

How does BOTOX® Treatment work?

Botox is administered by your treatment provider, through a clear liquid solution, injected directly into the wrinkle area. It works to smooth and prevent wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles that cause the skin to fold and form fine lines and wrinkles. The release of neurotransmitters to the muscles is blocked. Therefore creating temporary paralysis in order to halt the formation of new wrinkles, and reduce the appearance of existing ones. Once the muscles are relaxed, the overlying skin smooths out to reveal a more youthful appearance– with less lines and wrinkles.

BOTOX can also be combined with other skin care treatments for further improvement towards your aesthetic goals and facial rejuvenation.

Is BOTOX® safe?

Yes! BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment at Dr. Sharon Aesthetics, Houston, Texas, has been approved by the FDA, and is a widely used effective treatment by many plastic surgeons and injectors around the world to preserve the youth of prospective patients.

WHY choose BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® cosmetic injections are popular for the rejuvenating effects they offer with ease and minimal downtime. This anti-aging treatment is quick and painless, and results are guaranteed without the down-time of invasive surgical procedures.

Patients love the convenience and the results they can achieve from a 30-minute appointment.

What are the benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX is one of the most effective cosmetic procedures available for the treatment of wrinkles, and frown lines between your brows. You can smooth out forehead creases, crow’s feet around your eyes, and fine lines on your lips, helping you achieve your cosmetic goals. Having a treatment plan can help you preserve the youthfulness of your skin.

BOTOX is for more than just wrinkles

Although BOTOX is most famously known for its use in reducing facial wrinkles, it has a wide range of uses for cosmetic purposes. By altering the muscle movement in the face, Botox treatments can be used to lift and slim parts of the face.

Turn that frown upside-down! Those who have naturally downturned lips often struggle with having a naturally unhappy expression. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can be used to subtly lift the corners of the mouth for a warmer, inviting appearance.

Wow, have you been working out? Another use of Botox injections is to reduce the size of large masseter muscles in the jaw! Heaviness in the lower region of the face is associated with aging. Administering BOTOX® Cosmetic in the jaw muscles gives a slim V-shape to the face, giving an overall lifted appearance– without the extra time in the gym.

Need a lift? BOTOX® Cosmetic injected into frown lines can lift the medial brow area to give a more relaxed and rested expression! When injected into the outer corner of the brows, BOTOX® Cosmetic can lift the tails of the brows for a fiercer gaze– a look that has become increasingly popular among models and celebrities. Lifting the brows can also result in slight improvement of drooping eyelids.

Will I look frozen after the Botox procedure?

You will be able to maintain a natural appearance after treatment. This form of treatment effectively targets wrinkle-forming muscles while still allowing for natural facial expression.

Am I a good candidate? 

BOTOX® cosmetic treatments are suited for those who wish to reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles, and prevent the formation of new wrinkles, or to lift facial muscles. The cosmetic benefits of BOTOX are effective at treating the existing appearance of wrinkles as well as preventing premature aging.

Those with deep lines may be more suited for other skin rejuvenating treatments such as Dermal Fillers.

Side effects

Some mild side effects may occur when using Botox injection treatments such as redness, swelling, bruising, itching, tenderness, and headache. Facial pain is not commonly reported. It is advised to refrain from exercise and strenuous activities directly after. These symptoms subside within 24 hours and then you may resume normal activities. If you’ve had an allergic reaction to other injections of Botulinum Toxin, this treatment may not be right for you.

Notify your treatment provider of any existing medical conditions, prescription medicine or over the counter medicine you may be taking such as blood thinners (aspirin-like products) prior to treatment.
