Botox is a great treatment for wrinkles caused by muscle movement. In fact, there is nothing better for these areas! You can be assured that Dr. Brown has had years of experience with Botox and is a member of the Botox Cosmetic Physicians' Network. Her ultimate goal is to provide a natural, relaxed result that enhances your appearance but does not drastically change it. If you want a simple, quick, and virtually painless procedure to smooth out wrinkles on your upper face, Botox may be just what you are searching for!
What is the procedure like?
It is a simple 10-minute visit with a few tiny injections.
Which wrinkles are treated with Botox?
Botox is typically used to treat forehead wrinkles, Crow's feet, and the frown lines between the eyebrows.
Is it painful?
The injections feel like a mosquito bite. The discomfort is minimal and temporary.
Will I need anesthesia?
No, not at all. Everyone tolerates the injections very well, even those who don’t like needles.
Is it safe?
Botox has been FDA approved and used for other treatments in the U.S. for 20 years. Botox is a natural purified protein that is injected into specific muscles at very low doses. The effects are confined to the treated area.
Can I get pregnant while doing Botox?
You should not have treatments if you are currently pregnant. However, there is no reason that you cannot get pregnant after you have had a treatment.
Do I need to take time off to recuperate?
No. Most patients go right back to work or continue their activities immediately after. The injections are barely noticeable 10-15 minutes after the treatment. You can apply makeup immediately in the area after a treatment.
When will I see results?
Results begin to appear within 3-5 days. The muscle gradually relaxes over several days and may take up to 2 weeks to fully develop.
How long does it last?
3-4 Months for most patients. When Botox wears off, your wrinkles gradually reappear. Most patients need 3 injections per year, but some individuals last longer.
I have heard that the wrinkles look worse after the Botox wears off?
This is NOT TRUE at all. Your wrinkles will slowly return to their normal condition after 3-4 months. If you continue with regular Botox treatments, the treated muscles become weaker since they are not being used (like flabby arms). This is a good thing for your face, since it is strong muscles that cause the wrinkles. If you stick with treatments, the resting wrinkles typically become less noticeable with time, and you will continue to look better and better.
Are there any side effects?
Most people have no problems. Occasionally, some may have slight bruising at the injection sites. This is temporary and can be covered with makeup. Some may have a slight headache for a day. If the forehead is treated, there is a very slight risk of temporary eyelid droop. This is typically not noticeable to others and only lasts a few weeks.
Who performs the Botox?
Dr. Brown only.
Is Dr. Brown experienced with Botox?
Yes, she is extremely experienced. She has had extensive training in Botox and other cosmetic procedures in her residency. She is among a select group of physicians who are members of the company’s Botox Physician Network. You can find more information at the company website: www.botoxcosmetic.com.
Why should I choose Dr. Brown for my Botox treatments?
Dr. Brown is board certified in Dermatology and has had years of training and many more years of experience injecting Botox. In fact, she performs more Botox injections than any other physician in this area of Houston.
