Houston Botox Wrinkle Treatment Options and Procedures

Many people find that the passage of years leaves traces of wrinkles on their faces. Laugh lines, scowl lines, depressions around the mouth and nose and other imperfections can cause you to look older than you are. Acting as a paralytic, Botox treatment is used to prevent deeper wrinkles from developing and may soften or erase those wrinkles that have already formed.

Botox Cosmetic - Downey Plastic SurgeryBotulinum Toxin, often called Botox or Dysport, is widely used to decrease the appearance of lines and depressions around the eyes, nose, forehead and mouth. Many people do not know that it is made from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It is the same toxin that causes food poisoning, as in botulism, but it can also be used medically for a variety of conditions. For cosmetic enhancement, it is injected into muscles in the face to create a smoother, more youthful appearance.

How Botox Injections Work

An experienced doctor or plastic surgeon can use Botox injections to raise the eyebrows slightly, remove crinkly lines on the nose, to soften laugh lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), and smooth furrows in the forehead, as well as any other wrinkle-filled areas. Generally, a numbing cream or injection is applied to the area before treatment. Small amounts of Botox are then injected under the skin. You can usually resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. All of our Botox procedures are performed in-office in Houston, TX by Doctor Cara Downey, M.D.
