Cosmetic Consultations are FREE of Charge
Essentially, it is a drug that temporarily blocks muscular nerve signals. Injections of small amounts into
specific facial muscles block the muscles’ impulses. This weakens the muscle and diminishes unwanted lines.
The treatment only takes about ten minutes to perform and requires a few small injections to the targeted area. No
anesthesia is required but topical numbing can be used if requested.
Typically, Botox takes effect in 5-7 days. The softening and elimination of the lines will typically last 3-4 months. The
effect will gradually fade as the muscle action returns.
Side effects are generally minimal, temporary, and typically relate to the local injection site. Soreness or mild bruising
are not common but may occur around the injection site. A temporary headache is not uncommon after injections in forehead
region. All possible side effects are mild, reversible, self-limiting and ultimately temporary if, in the rare instance, they occurred.
You may combine Botox with one or a combination of the many types of fillers we offer at Ark-La-Tex Dermatology. This will
enhance your results while restoring volume loss.
Our doctors do all of the Botox injections on their patients. Only a licensed professional with
knowledge, training, and tested skills should administer Botox. Our physicians are Board Certified Dermatologist and have
extensive training in cosmetic dermatology.
