Botox Frequently Asked Questions

We wanted to compile a list of the most frequently asked questions you may have about botox. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

What is botox? It is a 10 minute treatment that is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better in adults

How does botox work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Our nurse will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.

When will I see results from the botox?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.

Will my face look over done or unnatural from botox?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX® Cosmetic to deliver subtle results when you are treated by our licensed, trained, and a nurse expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell

What should I expect? Does the treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch.

How much time does botox treatment take?

The injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Our nurse will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

How long is the recovery time after botox?

Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave our office.

Can I save money on treatment?

Yes! But be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of our nurse who is administering your treatment.

The best way to save money on your treatments is to enroll in Brilliant Distinctions® ,the Allergan consumer loyalty program that helps you earn points for savings on future treatments. It’s easy, and free!

Do men get botox?

Yes. The number of men receiving cosmetic treatments overall has risen by 325% over the last 20 years. When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would choose to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.

Is there a generic botox?

No. If it doesn’t say BOTOX® Cosmetic on the vial, then it isn’t BOTOX® Cosmetic. It’s important to understand that medical formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among products, so no one product can take the place of another. This is why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Backed by more than 15 years of clinical studies, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been described in 495 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

Let us know if you have any other questions about botox or if you would like to make a appointment for a free consultation with our nurse in our North Dallas or Southlake office.
