About BOTOX

At Plastic Surgery of Houston, BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most well known and effective treatments for moderate to severe facial and forehead wrinkles, especially the furrows between the brows. In the hands of board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jay Shenaq, BOTOX injections can relax muscle tension throughout the face, creating a softer, friendlier, and younger appearance. BOTOX injections make the skin appear supple, smooth, and youthful for 3 – 4 months. Many of our patients love the age-defying results of BOTOX and come back regularly for treatments to maintain their results. Treatments at our office at the Galleria Cosmetic Center or in Sugar Land, TX can take as little as 15 minutes.

Best Candidates

The best candidates for BOTOX injections are in good health who show the following signs:

  • Dynamic wrinkles
  • Smile and/or frown lines
  • Lines around the eyes (Crow’s feet)

What to Expect

The doctor will look at the quantity, depth, and location of your dynamic wrinkles to mark the areas of the muscles of the face that will be treated. With an ultra-fine syringe, BOTOX will be carefully injected into the marked areas. Most patients report mild discomfort when the needle pierces the skin, but numbing creams and cold compresses can be used to make your treatment more comfortable.

Other Considerations

Besides some swelling and redness for 3 – 4 hours, you should be able to return to your regular activities after the injection. We encourage all of our BOTOX patients to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to sleep upright the first night after the treatment. Complete results after BOTOX are visible (smoother forehead and diminished wrinkles) in about 5 – 7 days. Many patients feel that BOTOX treatments make their skin look radiant, they feel younger, and look well rested.
