Rediscover Youth: Botox Injections in Houston

Botox® is a safe, non-surgical injectable created to smooth wrinkles for a more youthful and attractive appearance. Customized Houston Botox injections can take years off your face in a treatment that takes only minutes to complete. Botox smooths dynamic wrinkles, which are the lines and creases created by facial expressions such as smiling, squinting, and raising your eyebrows. Injecting Botox into the muscles blocks the nerves that trigger these facial motions, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful look.

Botox Cosmetic (OnabotulinumtoxinA) is the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow's feet lines, and frown lines in adult men and women. Long-lasting results can be seen for up to 4 months. You may begin to see results in 24 to 48 hours after treatment, but full effect will be seen closer to 2 weeks.

Botox for facial lines and creases

Botox is an injection that can help decrease the severity of dynamic wrinkles. The product works by blocking the nerve signals to the muscles in the problem areas. Carefully administered Botox injections create a lovely, natural, smoothing effect.

Am I a candidate for Botox?

Men and women with transverse or horizontal wrinkles of the forehead, lines between the eyebrows, or wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet) can benefit from this non-surgical procedure. Botox can be injected as part of a “liquid brow lift” or “liquid facelift”. If you have developed deep forehead creases, crow’s feet, or frown lines, Botox injections can be started earlier in life as a preventative measure.

How do I prepare for my Botox treatment?

You should wear minimal makeup when coming in for facial Botox injections. Your face will be cleansed. A numbing cream will be placed on the skin if you are sensitive, though most find it unnecessary as the Botox injections are reasonably easy to tolerate.

A series of injections are then administered to the targeted facial areas. Unlike many other practices, at The Lind Institute of Plastic Surgery, BOTOX® injections are delivered by our expert injector for a result that appears fresh and natural, not overdone. The in-office procedure will take about 15 minutes.

Botox for excessive underarm sweating

Excessive underarm sweating that is not controllable with antiperspirants is medically termed “primary axillary hyperhidrosis”. Botox can be injected into your underarms to decrease sweat production by as much as 80% to 90%.

Botox treatment for excessive sweating is an excellent option if you have underarm sweating that cannot be resolved with products. This treatment is especially useful if you live in hot, humid areas such as Houston. Both men and women are candidates for this treatment.

Treatments to match your specific needs

Because it takes up to two weeks for Botox to achieve the optimal smoothing effect, our Nurse Practitioner is more conservative with the initial injections, as they want to evaluate how your body reacts. Additional cosmetic injections in Houston can be performed if needed.

How does the Botox procedure work for excessive underarm sweating?

For excessive underarm sweating, BOTOX® is administered to the underarm area in a grid pattern. The injections are not very painful as very small needles are used, and the injections are shallow. At The Lind Institute of Plastic Surgery, our BOTOX® injections are performed with advanced skills and techniques to achieve real-world relief from excessive sweating. The in-office procedure takes about 20 minutes.

What is the recovery time?

After your Botox injections, you may experience some redness and swelling in the underarm area, which will quickly fade. Some bleeding may occur, but this is usually minimal. If bruising appears, it will resolve in a couple of weeks. Strenuous activity should be avoided for the remainder of the day, but you can return to work directly after treatment. You can return to full activities the following day.

How long will my results last?

Botox is considered a preventative treatment for excessive underarm sweating. Results can last from four to 12 months. Cosmetic Botox injections will need to be repeated as the effect fades. This amount of time will vary from person to person.

What happens if more Botox is needed?

If, after 14 days, it becomes apparent that the desired smoothing effect was not achieved, a few more units of BOTOX® will be injected. We will rapidly learn what your body needs to achieve the desired effect. It is always safer to start with a conservative amount of BOTOX® and inject more when needed. BOTOX® can always be added, but once injected, there is no way to reverse the effect other than waiting for it to fade over several months.
