Botox has gained immense popularity as an effective treatment to rejuvenate your face and produce a more youthful, radiant appearance. This anti-aging injectable treatment is known throughout the world for preventing wrinkles and lines from appearing as you age. At Deigni Plastic Surgery, our competent aesthetic team provides quality Botox solutions in Houston designed to produce natural-looking results that make you feel happy, confident, and radiant.

What is Botox?

Botox is a brand name for a combination of neurotoxins used to help relax and smooth out wrinkles due to aging or from an overactive expression of muscles. These injections block chemical signals in the nerves that cause muscles to contract. The injections temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead and around the eyes.

Botox injections are considered the best-in-class minimally invasive treatment for patients seeking a more natural look with minimal downtime. Although the cost of the treatment differs depending on the clinic location, the price is only a fraction of a surgical facelift.

Who Can Use Botox?

Botox can benefit both men and women of all ages. While older clients often use Botox to eliminate lines and wrinkles, younger clients in their 20s to 30s use the treatment as an effective wrinkle prevention strategy. The following are the qualities we use to determine whether you are a good candidate for Botox:

  • You must be at least 18 years old and physically healthy
  • You should not be pregnant or nursing
  • You should have healthy skin with moderate elasticity but showing signs of aging
  • The wrinkles should be located in areas that Botox can treat effectively, such as between the eyes, forehead, and neck.
  • You should have realistic goals and expectations.

The most prominent areas where we can treat wrinkles are forehead lines, frown lines above your eyebrows, fine lines around the mouth, and crow’s feet around your eyes. We can consult with you to determine the best strategy based on your level of wrinkle development.

The Botox Procedure

Your treatment starts with a consultation with Dr. Deigni and his team. During the consultation, he will listen to your concerns and answer all questions you want to address. We will also discuss all the different options available in order to come up with a suitable option that meets your needs. During the treatment, Dr. Deigni injects Botox into the targeted areas using a tiny needle. We are able to perform the treatment on the same day as your consultation at our clinic. Botox is a quick procedure that takes less than 30 minutes in our Houston office.

Patients usually report a slight pinch with each injection. If Botox is being administered around your mouth, we recommend using a local anesthetic to reduce the pain and discomfort.

What Should I Expect After Botox Treatment?

There is no downtime required after Botox treatment in Houston and you can return to your normal activities immediately after. Although minor bruising may appear at the injection site, it will quickly resolve on its own within a few days.

You should expect to see the initial results about five to seven days after treatment, and the full benefits usually become noticeable in two weeks. You may need additional treatment after several months to maintain the results.

It is important for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle to help your Botox results last longer. You should also avoid massaging the injection area right after the treatment; however, you can do gentle facial exercises to help the substance spread out. Other measures to maintain the results include:

  • Staying hydrated
  • Avoiding direct sunlight
  • Moisturizing your skin often
  • Taking regular zinc supplements

Botox is an absolutely safe treatment that has been used to treat various conditions for many years. This FDA-approved treatment has limited side effects and no downtime. Any bruising that appears can be quickly addressed with makeup.
