what is 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.

Am I A Candidate For Botox?

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)

How do botox injections work?

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.

How long is recovery after a botox injection?

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.


How many BOTOX injections/units will I need?
The number of BOTOX injections given will differ based on individual concerns and the extent of your facial wrinkles and lines. Dr. Shenaq can recommend the ideal number of BOTOX injections according to your treatment results and whether you wish to address the forehead, brow area, or Crow's feet. To maintain your cosmetic results, we could suggest scheduling BOTOX procedures every 3 – 4 months at Plastic Surgery of Houston.

Can BOTOX be paired with additional aesthetic services?
BOTOX treatment typically pairs well with other aesthetic options at Plastic Surgery of Houston for individuals who prefer to target signs of aging. If you notice more pronounced and severe facial wrinkles and lines, our practitioners might suggest adding a filler to help you achieve your smoothest outcomes. To further enhance your younger-looking radiant appearance, Dr. Shenaq could provide other complementary treatments, like microneedling.

Is there a variation among fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
Even though wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX Cosmetic, are administered to decrease facial creases by temporarily freezing your muscle engagement, dermal fillers are a distinct collection of cosmetic formulations that enhance volume in the face. Fillers are designed to plump hollow features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Shenaq can ascertain whether you may benefit from a dermal filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to further enhance your BOTOX results.
