Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso - BOTOX® Injections

Especially in warm, sunny places like El Paso, environmental factors like dry heat and UV exposure can have a negative effect on the look of your skin. If the lines on your face are making you look -- and feel -- older than you really are, simple injectable treatments like facial fillers and BOTOX® may help you turn back the clock. BOTOX®, in particular, is one of the most popular anti-aging treatments available today. It offers a completely non-surgical solution to facial lines and wrinkles, and can even help lift the brow or restore a more pleasant neutral expression to your face. At the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Centers of El Paso, we offer expert, customized BOTOX® treatments for men and women of many ages and with facial concerns of all kinds.

What is BOTOX®?

The active ingredient in BOTOX® is botulinum toxin, which might sound like a harmful substance but is, in fact, a naturally-occurring protein known for its nerve-blocking abilities. Researchers harnessed this protein’s properties to create safe, injectable formulas with a number of uses. The most well-known injectable brand name is BOTOX® Cosmetic by Allergan, which has been the top-selling botulinum toxin formula worldwide for many years. BOTOX® is FDA-approved for cosmetic uses and has a trusted record of safety and efficacy that has been evaluated in over 400 peer-reviewed articles in medical and scientific journals as well as Allergan-sponsored studies.

A BOTOX® injection to the face can temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. BOTOX® injections work by blocking the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. In recent years, BOTOX® has also been approved by the FDA for several non-cosmetic uses, including treatments for eye spasms, migraines, and excessive underarm sweat.

Common Applications for BOTOX®

For aesthetics purposes, BOTOX® is primarily used for treating facial wrinkles that are caused by overworked facial muscles. When you have a facial expression that you make often, such as furrowing your brow or squinting, you can cause the delicate muscles of your face to become partially permanently tensed. The resulting creases can make you look older, angrier or more worried than you really are. BOTOX® is perfect for smoothing these lines and restoring your youth and your worry-free expression. 

Forehead Wrinkles

Many people notice their forehead wrinkles becoming more and more prominent as they age. Forehead wrinkles happen to be one of the most prominent features to indicate a person’s age and play a big part in expression and the positioning of the brows. For this reason, it’s one of the most popular sites for BOTOX® treatment.

Crow’s Feet

Many people are unhappy with the small lines that extend from the outside of the eyes from smiling or laughing. BOTOX® can help lighten these lines and give a more youthful appearance around the eyes.

Frown Lines 

As we age, many of us notice parallel “eleven” lines between our eyebrows when we frown. These lines can create a puzzled or angry expression as well as pull the brow down and possibly age the eyes as well. BOTOX® has been known to ease these lines and help lift the brow back into a more natural position.

Bunny Lines

Lines that extend from the bridge of your nose to your lower eyelids when you crinkle your nose are considered bunny lines. Many people use BOTOX® to soften these lines and smooth the face on both sides of the nose.

Lips

Lines that show when your purse your lips and fan out from the outside of the mouth are sometimes called smoker’s lines. They can make wearing lip makeup difficult and can age your appearance very quickly. These lines can be treated with a small amount of BOTOX® and a very experienced doctor.

Is BOTOX® Right for Me?

BOTOX® is a simple, time-tested treatment for many facial lines and wrinkles. It works for an immense variety of patients and comes with very few risks and potential complications If you are experiencing facial aging as a result of overworked facial muscles, BOTOX® is likely right for you. To find out if BOTOX® is the best solution for your anti-aging needs, you should schedule a consultation with an experienced provider in your area. In El Paso, Texas, Dr. Jabor and Dr. Reynolds of the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center of El Paso have performed countless BOTOX® injections for patients who desire firmer, more youthful looking skin without the surgical commitment of a facelift.

Our highly experienced team of board-certified plastic surgeons and licensed technicians are also able to help with other signs of aging on the face. We provide a full range of non-surgical injectable treatments. In addition to BOTOX®, you might be a good candidate for injectable dermal fillers. As you get older, the effectiveness of your skin’s natural collagen decreases, causing lines and creases around the eyes, lips and on the forehead. These wrinkles may not be effectively treated by BOTOX® since they are caused by loss of facial volume rather than facial muscle contractions. Dermal fillers such as Restylane®, Radiesse®, Sculptra® restore lost volume, resulting in improvement in lines, wrinkles and sometimes pitted scars.

What Is a BOTOX® Treatment Like?

At the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Centers of El Paso, BOTOX® is a very quick outpatient procedure. Appointments typically last a half hour or less, so you can schedule a BOTOX® treatment even during your lunch break or between errands. The treatments are not painful and you will not experience significant side effects that will prevent you from returning to the public eye. You can resume all of your normal activities immediately after your treatment, though we may advise avoiding very strenuous exercise until your treatment has settled. You can expect to see the full results of your treatments in just a few days after your appointment, after which your new wrinkle-free look will last between three and four months until your body metabolizes the botulinum toxin.
