BOTOX® in Houston, TX

52 Services ( View All )


BOTOX Cosmetic has become a well-known cosmetic injectable and is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in the world. In the U.S., there are currently three Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved neurotoxins available — BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin. All neurotoxin serums work by relaxing the muscle, preventing muscle contractions and therefore softening the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The duration of results will vary from patient to patient and last an average ranging from 3 – 4 months.

It seems like there is a new miracle cream or cosmetic treatment popping up every day promising eternal youth and beauty. But there are a few treatments that have stood the test of time — BOTOX is one of them. These injections provide gorgeous results and are extremely popular among both men and women. As a filtered strain of botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle impacted. To modify age lines, BOTOX is commonly placed by one of our experienced injectors between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead. Our practitioners perform BOTOX injections at all locations of Advanced Dermatology in Katy, League City, Pearland, and Sugar Land, TX.

Am I a good candidate for BOTOX?

BOTOX is ideal if you want to smooth the appearance of lines on your face without invasive procedures. This wrinkle relaxer is also used as a preventive treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. 

What is the treatment technique for BOTOX?

BOTOX injections are done as an outpatient procedure directly at Advanced Dermatology. If it is your first time to visit us for BOTOX, we typically perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make several facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities as soon as you feel able.

A word of caution when looking for a BOTOX provider: visiting someone with the correct qualifications should prevent dangerous consequences that happen because of inexperience. Our practitioners are highly qualified to perform your BOTOX injections with great care and skill.

What to Expect from BOTOX treatments?

After the injection, you can resume your regular activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for a few days, but you will not experience any lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at Advanced Dermatology to maintain your results.


How many BOTOX treatments will I need?

The number of BOTOX treatments needed will differ based on individual goals and the depth and severity of your facial lines. Our practitioners can suggest the appropriate number of BOTOX injections based on your desired cosmetic goals and whether you want to treat the forehead, Crow's feet, or between the eyes. To refresh your aesthetic outcomes, our team might recommend scheduling BOTOX injections every few months at Advanced Dermatology.

Can BOTOX be paired with other nonsurgical procedures?

BOTOX generally pairs well with other noninvasive options at Advanced Dermatology for women and men who would like to address aging concerns. If you have more pronounced and extensive facial lines and wrinkles, our professionals might talk with you about adding a filler to help you achieve optimal outcomes. To further improve your younger-looking radiant glow, our practitioners could perform other complementary services, such as facials or microdermabrasion.

Are there comparable cosmetic injections?

BOTOX Cosmetic is a certain type of wrinkle reducer that thrives among a range of other effective solutions, like Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and Jeuveau®. These wrinkle-reducing solutions contain type A botulinum toxin; however, they are each created a little differently to target certain issues.

What's the difference between fillers and wrinkle reducers?

While wrinkle reducers, like BOTOX Cosmetic, are utilized to minimize fine lines by temporarily freezing your muscle engagement, fillers are a distinct collection of cosmetic formulations that enhance facial volume. Dermal fillers are designed to plump sunken areas and reduce static wrinkles. Our practitioners can ascertain if you may benefit from a filler (like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to further enhance your BOTOX outcomes.

How long does BOTOX last?

The effects of BOTOX are temporary and typically last 3 – 6 months. Regular maintenance treatments are required to sustain the results.

What is the recovery time after BOTOX?

There is minimal downtime after BOTOX injections. Patients can usually resume their normal activities immediately after the procedure. However, it's advised to avoid strenuous exercise and lying down for a few hours after treatment.
