About BOTOX

To diminish the effects of aging and to prevent lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from forming on the forehead and upper face, University Urgent Care in Fort Worth, TX is proud to offer BOTOX to local patients. This facial rejuvenation procedure provides amazing results and is popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a dramatic enhancement to dynamic facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressions and movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic creases can still exist. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these dynamic lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly placed between the brows where the number "11" appears, on the Crow's feet, and throughout the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX is used for individuals who hope to diminish and soften the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their face in a nonsurgical way. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive treatment even if static wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is an effective nonsurgical solution if you have obvious forehead lines or frown lines between the brows. It's also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. Also, if you are older with moderate to severe skin laxity, you may be a candidate for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is meant to last years. 

Procedure Technique

BOTOX injectable treatments are performed as an outpatient procedure right at University Urgent Care. If it is your first time to visit us in Fort Worth, TX for BOTOX, we usually perform the injection within the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make a number of facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to see where the injections need to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help prevent bruising and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not needed. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can get back to your normal day almost immediately.

What to Expect

After the BOTOX injection, you are allowed to return to your normal schedule, but strenuous activities, like exercise, should be postponed for at least a day. You will be asked to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may become red, swollen, or bruised for a couple of days, but you will not have any serious or lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it generally takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule a follow-up appointment at University Urgent Care to refresh your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does BOTOX cost?
The total cost for BOTOX injections will depend on how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, we will form your personal treatment plan before we can estimate your costs. BOTOX can produce amazing results when performed by a skilled injector, but it can be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. 

How long will my results last?
Improvements from BOTOX can last up to four months. Most patients schedule a visit every season to sustain their results, but you may come back sooner. If you are getting BOTOX while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule visits further apart. After listening to your goals and forming your treatment plan, we will be able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.

What's the difference between BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin?
BOTOX, Dysport, and Xeomin are brands of injectable wrinkle relaxers that use botulinum toxin (type A). They all relax facial muscles to soften dynamic wrinkles, but each formula is designed to suit specific areas and needs. There are subtle differences between them, including the amount in each dose, treatment spread, and length of results. We will choose the best one to achieve your goals.

Is BOTOX safe?
When applied properly, BOTOX rarely causes any complications. With that said, it is important to choose someone who has experience and training in handling this medication. Overinjecting BOTOX can give you an undesirable outcome. A skilled injector will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. One of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today, BOTOX is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used to treat medical issues, including facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
