Botox in Austin, Texas.
a simple, safe, and effective solution for these types of wrinkles. It has been called the “lunchtime face-lift” by some because it is simple and quick to perform.
Dynamic wrinkles can be softened or smoothed by such methods as chemical peels and laser resurfacing. But since they have been formed by the muscular action of small facial muscles of expression, they tend to be re-established eventually. Botox is not a permanent treatment, but it is long lasting. Your first treatment will usually last three to four months and tends to last longer with each additional treatment. Ultimately one to two treatments a year could maintain the improvement.
The method consists of injecting tiny quantities of a biological medicine called Botox Cosmetic into specific muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Botox is “Botulinum Enterotoxin”. This substance does not harm the muscles and nerves but it blocks the signals from the nerves so the muscle will not contract. Thus the cause of dynamic wrinkles is removed. The area remains relaxed and the wrinkles are markedly softened. Some patients say they “frown” whenever they are concentrating giving the appearance that they are angry. Deep creases can form due to this frequent frowning. With Botox this can be corrected. When they attempt to frown, but the brow remains relaxed and smooth the result can be remarkable. They look more relaxed and confident.
The same is true for crow’s feet. When you smile, your eyes can still “light up” and be very natural and attractive without the parallel wrinkles at the corner of the eyes that can be distracting. The result is a more natural, softer smile without the deep wrinkles.

We are here to answer your Questions
Is Botox Cosmetics a new treatment?
No, Botox has been used for more then 11 years over 1 million patients worldwide and it is approved by the health ministries of at least 70 countries. Botox has also been endorsed by the American Academy of Neurology and the National Institutes of Health since 1990.
How long does Botox last?
Each treatment typically lasts 3 to 4 months and begins to have a residual effect after a few treatments so time between injections can be spaced longer.
How is Botox administered?
Botox is injected into the affected muscles. Botox is reconstituted with sterile, preservative-free, normal saline for injection. The neutral pH of the injected solution, in combination with the fine-gauge needle that will be used, can help to minimize any injection-related pain.
When will I see the results?
Normally you will start to see effects of Botox within 3 to 14 day.
What is a Unit in measuring Botox?
A unit is a measured amount of Botox. Several units at a time are injected into different areas of the muscle you want to target. The number of units below are typical but not always the same for every client. Depending on the individual these amounts may vary.
Between the Brows: 20-24
Around the Eyes: 24-28
