Botox®

Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Botox® Treatment in Webster, League City, Friendswood and Pasadena, TX

Botox® is a medication that has been used successfully for a number of years to treat conditions that result from lack of muscle control; however, Botox® is most commonly known as a wrinkle treatment. When used to reduce facial wrinkles, Botox® works in the same way as when used to treat medical conditions–paralyzing certain groups of muscles, so they do not overreact to stimuli. This treatment results in frown lines that are less noticeable than before. Clear Lake Dermatology can perform Botox® injections in patients in Pasadena, TX, and League City, TX.

Botox® Procedure

Botox® is injected into certain muscles near the forehead or eyebrow area and does not require the use of anesthesia.

Botox® is one of the most commonly used fillers for reducing forehead wrinkles. While Botox® injections are sometimes offered at day spas and beauty shops, only a licensed physician is lawfully allowed to administer this injection. Having a Botox® treatment at an alternate location poses serious health risks and may not produce the results desired.

Botox® Post-Treatment

After the injection, many patients report feeling tenderness in and around the injection area. Headaches can sometimes occur and can normally be alleviated with over-the-counter medications. Those who are pregnant should forgo this treatment until after they deliver. People who suffer from flu-like symptoms after having a Botox® injection should immediately consult a medical professional.

Although some improvement is noticed right away, the full effects of Botox® may not be visible for about a week. Botox® does not produce permanent results, and most people begin to notice frown lines again in about six months. At this time, patients may elect to have another Botox® injection to achieve their former look. Botox® will not completely diminish deep wrinkles, so those with severe frown lines may not be able to benefit from one of these injections.

Botox® Jawline Reduction Treatment

Botox® offers a non-invasive technique for contouring and slimming the jawline without resorting to costly, time-consuming bone surgery. Using Botox® injections to shape the face and jawline is fast, safe and inexpensive, and it requires minimal downtime for recovery. The full slimming effect becomes evident after about two weeks, with results lasting for up to eight months.

Botox® Open Eye Treatment

Since the upper eyelids and eyebrows are closely related, relaxing the eyebrow muscles with Botox® can lift both structures, creating a more “open” eye or “round” eye. The difference becomes especially noticeable with advancing age; like the rest of the face, the eyes and eyebrows lose volume over time and begin to sag. Injecting Botox® carefully above the eyebrows disables the brow depressor muscles that cause the droopy effect. This allows the muscles to stay erect, thus opening up the eye area and creating a more alert, youthful appearance.
