BOTOX® cosmetic treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the affects of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines, and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines, and all are treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting BOTOX into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.
To better understand your overall health, our Doctors and our DFW Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery team will evaluate your medical history prior to the procedure. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.
The areas that will be treated are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after the procedure.
The BOTOX Cosmetic Procedure
BOTOX cosmetic injections are performed without anesthesia because they are virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. BOTOX Cosmetic is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.
After the procedure, patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles, or in rare cases, an eyelid may droop. BOTOX Cosmetic is completely reversible, so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.
Botox can be useful for patients with mild to moderate wrinkles. For patients with deeper wrinkles, other tissue fillers, like JUVÉDERM, may be indicated. Our Doctors can also use tissue fillers to re-contour sunken cheeks, give a patient fuller lips, or reduce “bags” under the eyes. Like BOTOX, tissue fillers are delivered via injection.
Tissue fillers and BOTOX in Irving, Mesquite, and Ennis, Texas, can offer a good option to patients who want to look younger but don’t want to undergo a more invasive surgical procedure that can significantly disrupt their lives. Our surgeons will carefully evaluate your facial structures and determine whether BOTOX or tissue fillers can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
