What is BOTOX?
Minimizing the visible effects of repetitive facial expressions in the upper face and forehead is quick and safe with BOTOX injections at Clear Lake Dermatology. BOTOX injections are also great for people who want to delay the appearance of fine facial lines. Our board-certified dermatologists are happy to offer BOTOX injectable treatments to patients in the Greater Houston area.
This facial rejuvenation procedure helps patients achieve the gorgeous results they desire. BOTOX injections are a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A), which temporarily eases the contractions of the facial muscles. The crevices created by these continuous expressions are known as “dynamic” because they're caused by facial movements. Eventually, these dynamic wrinkles stay in place, even when the muscles relax. BOTOX injections can significantly smoothen the depth of these wrinkles by limiting the range of muscle movement and giving the skin above those muscles a chance to relax.

BOTOX is great for patients who want to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can even be a preventive treatment for those who don't yet have wrinkles — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions! It's a terrific, noninvasive treatment if you're frustrated by forehead lines or frown lines between the brows. BOTOX is also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler injectable is typically more effective. Also, if you're over the age of 50 with moderate to severe skin laxity, you may need a facelift to achieve the look you want. This delivers a more dramatic, longer-lasting result.
Our Injection Technique
BOTOX injections are available as an outpatient procedure at Clear Lake Dermatology. After completing your consultation, we can often perform the injection during the same appointment. One of our expert dermatologists will ask you to make various facial expressions while using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, and smiling. This will help us decide where to place your injections. BOTOX is most commonly administered between the brows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and throughout the forehead.
Next, we'll clean your face and administer the BOTOX with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to minimize bruising and discomfort. You may ask for a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it's usually unnecessary. Typically, BOTOX injections take 10 – 15 minutes to complete.
What to Expect
Following the injection, you can return to most of your regular activities. However, you should avoid strenuous exercise for a minimum of 24 hours. Also, patients should sleep with their head elevated for the first night and avoid touching their face, which could accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The treated sections of your face may appear slightly bruised, swollen, or red for a couple of days, but you should not experience any serious or long-lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it takes 5 – 7 days before noticing the full effects of BOTOX, which generally last 3 – 4 months. You should ask your BOTOX injector when to schedule your next appointment at Clear Lake Dermatology to maintain your results.
