Denton Plastic Surgery For Botox – Injecting Skill Matters
Our surgeons have received extensive training in all forms of facial rejuvenation, including Botox treatment.
Additionally, they have an extraordinarily detailed understanding of the anatomy beneath the skin’s surface. They have even performed extensive research and presented at national meetings on the topic of nerve dysfunction and repair.
While such knowledge is important in achieving the best possible outcome with any cosmetic treatment—whether non-invasive dermal fillers, cosmetic surgery or any other procedure—it is especially true when injecting BOTOX. Dr. Flugstad and Dr. Rivet take a conservative approach to ensure the result appears fresh and natural.
Should I Try Botox?
If you are troubled by any of the following facial issues, you are likely a good candidate for BOTOX injections:
- Crow’s feet
- Vertical lines between brows
- Forehead creases
Why Have BOTOX Treatments?
If you feel that forehead creases and lines, frown lines between your brows, or crow’s feet add years to your look, consider BOTOX injections. Take note that the skills of your injector are the most critical aspect of a achieving a fresh, natural result. The last thing you want is to have your face appear expressionless, uneven, or frozen.
How Long Before I See Results?
With BOTOX, you will need to be patient as the formula does its work. The fading of facial wrinkles and lines requires several days to appear, typically with full effect in about one week. The smoothing effect lasts for many months, but slowly, as your body sheds the product, the lines and wrinkles will once again appear. Most patients require retreatment about every three months, with some variation, person to person.
What Are The Risks of BOTOX?
BOTOX has been administered to hundreds of thousands of people annually and is very safe.
Further, it only stays in the body for a period of approximately six months, so unwanted side effects are temporary. However, as small bruise, of a drooping eyelid, or the inability to control facial muscles that were not intended for treatment, or a “frozen look” from being over-injected can be both uncomfortable as well as unsightly.
Our doctors and their staff can be depended on to provide treatments that meet the highest standards of care, delivered in a relaxing, compassionate spa-like environment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are there other muscle relaxers and how safe are they?
There are other FDA-approved injectable muscle relaxers such as Dysport or Xeomin, but all must be administered by a trained physician. Safety is largely dependent on the experience and training of the treating practitioner. Beware of “BOTOX parties” and claims of less expensive, but comparable, products offered by non-medical personnel. The products may be counterfeit, not FDA-approved and in some cases have proven to be toxic. When considering BOTOX, it could not be more important that your treatments are performed by a highly-skilled medical professional with years of experience injecting the product.
Will I need more BOTOX over time?
Not necessarily. In many cases, continued treatments “train” the injected muscles so that they remain more relaxed and continue to do so over time. Many patients have remarked that they require less units to maintain a fresh, rejuvenated look. Others may notice the product is no longer working as it once did and may be advised to try injections with another neuromodulator, Dysport.
