In the world of cosmetic injectables, Botox® is one of the most common treatments. Botox has become so popular as it is extremely effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles. The use of Botox has continued to expand as we now use it to create a brow lift, contour the jawline with masseter injections, and improve the contour of the neck with platysma band injections.
Around the world, people safely use this non-surgical injectable treatment to fade away and correct facial wrinkles that cause expressions on the forehead, around the eyes, nose, and lips. Botox, administered by our expert plastic surgeons and injectors, has helped treat these issues in many of our patients.

Am I Eligible for Botox®?
Most of our San Antonio patients are eligible for Botox. The neuromodulator Botox is for patients who want to rejuvenate their appearance by treating facial wrinkles that can make us appear prematurely aged or tired. The uses of Botox have continued to expand because it has been so effective for patients. Many of our patients will use Botox to achieve a non-surgical brow lift. Botox can be used to shape and contour the brows helping patients achieve a more youthful and rested appearance. It has also been extremely effective in helping contour the face and jawline when used to treat the masseter muscles. Injection into the masseter muscles can create a slimmer, contoured face and jawline. It can also be used to help treat some of the fine lines around the mouth that we can get from smoking or using straws. We also offer Botox for medical concerns such as hyperhidrosis. This can be extremely effective when patients are preparing for a large event and want to minimize the appearance of sweating.
Efficacy is one of the main reasons Botox is the most popular anti-wrinkle treatment in the world. The effects of Botox are consistent and reliable for the treatment of wrinkles.
How Does Botox® Work?
Botox works by minimizing the movement of muscles that cause wrinkles in the forehead, around and between the eyes. It is popular for treating wrinkles caused by facial expressions, including forehead lines, glabella lines that are often referred to as the “11” in between your eyes, the wrinkles created by raising your eyebrows, squinting, smiling, or pursing your lips. When administered by one of our expert injectors in San Antonio, your Botox treatment results can last several months.
What To Expect During Your Botox® Cosmetic Appointment
Our team of expert injectors will consult with you about your concerns and goals for your Botox treatment. The Botox treatment itself will be quick, lasting a few minutes or more, depending on how many treatment areas you and your provider choose to treat. Most treatments will take less than an hour and can be easily scheduled over lunch.
It is important to remember that Botox treatments will not be visible immediately as it may take up to two weeks to see the full effect. The beauty of the Botox treatment is that it will slowly take effect and minimize the motion that is causing your wrinkles. Over the next several weeks, your skin will continue to smooth out as the wrinkles resolve. Interestingly, you will notice that your wrinkles and skin continue to improve for months as the Botox will actually treat the cause of wrinkle formation. Botox has minimal downtime or recovery–San Antonio patients can return to their jobs or normal life immediately after their treatment.
Are Botox® Results Permanent?
The age-defying results of your Botox injections in San Antonio will last you several months but they will not be permanent. One of the main advantages of Botox is that it is naturally degraded and absorbed by the body. Therefore, our medical team recommends you schedule maintenance appointments every 3-6 months or as directed to maintain your beautiful Botox results.
