What Is BOTOX?
Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX is pleased to offer BOTOX to diminish the effects of aging and stop fine lines and wrinkles from occurring on the forehead and upper face. This facial rejuvenation treatment offers amazing results and is popular among both women and men. This injectable can make a dramatic improvement to your appearance by weakening the muscles of facial expression in your forehead and eyebrows. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the muscles to diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is most commonly used by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe between the brows, around the eyes, and on the forehead.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are used for patients who hope to diminish and soften the visible look of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face in a nonsurgical manner. It is often thought of as an anti-aging treatment that can be effective, even if static wrinkles have not yet formed. If you have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows and Crow's feet around the eyes, BOTOX can be a noninvasive solution to your problems. For those who experience more severe and deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better alternative. Prospective patients with moderate to severe skin laxity may be candidates for more intensive procedures, such as a facelift or brow lift. These deliver more impactful results and are meant to last for years.
BOTOX For Men ("BROTOX")
While a weatherbeaten look may work for famous men like Clint Eastwood, not every man wants all those lines and wrinkles. More and more men are finding out that the age-defying benefits of BOTOX aren't just for women. In fact, BROTOX is becoming one of the fastest-growing aesthetic procedures performed in the U.S. today, with more than 500,000 men regularly getting it done each year. Using the same laboratory-refined and diluted form of botulinum toxin, men are smoothing their fine lines and wrinkles to maintain a vital, youthful appearance while keeping a masculine look. Look younger, stay competitive, and give yourself the confidence to perform at your absolute best every day with a BROTOX treatment at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX.
How Is BOTOX Performed?
BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure right here in one of our private treatment rooms. If it is your first time to visit our office for BOTOX, we typically perform the treatment within the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Dauwe. You will be asked to make several expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to visualize where the injections should be placed. Your skin will be cleaned with an alcohol pad and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed with a cool compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 – 15 minutes to complete.
What Results Can I Expect From BOTOX?
Following the BOTOX injection, you will be able to immediately return to your regular schedule. However, exercise and other forms of strenuous activity should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and to avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas of the face. The injected sections of your face can become swollen, bruised, or red for a couple of hours, but you should not have any lasting or serious side effects. In the majority of cases, it typically takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last around 3 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make a follow-up appointment at Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery to refresh your results.
Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX
How much does BOTOX cost?
The total cost for BOTOX injections will be based on the amount of product that is needed. This varies to fit your unique goals. In your consultation, Dr. Dauwe will create your custom treatment plan and then he can discuss cost estimates. If you'd like to save money, ask for more information on the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program, which allows you to start earning points for BOTOX and other products from Allergan, including Juvéderm.
How long will results from BOTOX last?
Improvements from BOTOX will likely be visible for as long as four months, but some patients see effects for up to six months. Usually, patients schedule a visit every quarter to sustain their results; however, you can come back earlier. If you're using BOTOX before wrinkles are visible for a proactive measure, you can schedule visits further apart. After hearing your concerns and forming your BOTOX plan, Dr. Dauwe will be able to tell you when you should make your next visit.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Injectable wrinkle relaxers (including BOTOX) and injectable wrinkle fillers (including Restylane and Juvéderm) are both procedures that improve the appearance of wrinkles and correct fine lines. Wrinkle relaxers work by numbing the muscles in your face that create dynamic wrinkles. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, increase volume below the skin to correct depressions and improve fine lines throughout your face. Based on your goals, Dr. Dauwe may suggest BOTOX, fillers, or a "liquid facelift," which combines both.
What is the difference between BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin?
BOTOX, Xeomin, and Dysport are brands of injectable wrinkle relaxers that contain botulinum toxin. They all relax the treated muscles to smooth dynamic wrinkles; however, each brand is made to treat specific needs. Some of the small differences between them include the amount in each dose, how far the treatment spreads, and how long the results last. Dr. Dauwe will select the best one to achieve your goals.
Is BOTOX safe?
As long as it is applied correctly, BOTOX should not cause serious complications. However, it's important to choose someone with experience and training in injecting BOTOX, like Dr. Dauwe. You cannot receive BOTOX if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Quickly becoming one of the most requested cosmetic treatments, BOTOX is considered safe and has earned approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
