Botox inhibits muscle contractions by blocking nerve signals. Using a fine needle, Botox is injected into the selected muscle resulting in a relaxed and softened appearance on the surface. We offer muscle relaxants such as BOTOX, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau. BOTOX is injected with the smallest of needle types. It is typically a very quick (less than 5 mins) type of service. Most time, the appointment is dedicated to discussing which areas and how many units you may need today. The procedure is almost over right after it gets started! Many of our patients who decide to get BOTOX or Dysport go without any numbing or icing at all. However, if you want to have the areas numbed first, we can do that for you.

The procedure is very simple yet detailed. Prior to receiving your treatment, your practitioner will ensure you are a good candidate. You will both discuss which areas you are interested in and how many units are needed to achieve results. No anesthesia is required for this treatment however you can request topical anesthetic if you are sensitive otherwise this is virtually painless. You may feel a slight pinch at each injection. Your results take a few days up to 2 weeks. This procedure is less than 30 minutes for initial treatment as subsequent treatments are less.
The advantages of this treatment include:
Wrinkles surrounding the eyes, known as crow's feet, and frown lines are typical areas where people choose to get botox. Deep forehead lines, smile creases, and lip liners are common spots where botox is used.
Before your Botox procedure, you will have a consultation outlining how you should prepare for botox. One week before your procedure, avoid alcohol. Two weeks prior, be sure to stop using aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications. These specific measures will help with bruising post-treatment.
Botox injections last 2.5-3 months. As you receive regular botox injections, your muscles will be trained to relax more, and the treatment will last a little longer.
Bruising is the most common side effect but will dissipate within a few weeks. Headaches are rare but may last one to two days. Some patients experience an eyelid droop which will stop within a few weeks. This occurs as the botox moves around and gets settled. Be mindful of the treated area and refrain from rubbing or touching it for 12 hours. Also, be sure not to lie down within the first hour after the procedure.
Botox is FDA-approved, but if you have certain conditions, you should not get the procedure. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease, your doctor will tell you not to receive botox treatments.
The first thing to understand about wrinkles is that there are two types. The first is referred to as "static" wrinkles, which form as tissues age and grow lax. The other type of wrinkle is called "dynamic." These are created by repetitive muscle movements like smiling or squinting.
BOTOX® cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment designed to reduce the look of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. With dynamic wrinkles, it works by blocking nerve stimulus to the muscles in the targeted area. This is why BOTOX® cosmetic is capable of such dramatic improvements on dynamic wrinkles like:
- Frown lines are lines that form between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
- Forehead furrows or lines
- Laugh lines to the sides of the mouth
- Lipstick lines, which are the tiny wrinkles that form around the lips
BOTOX® cosmetic is also known as botulinum toxin type A. Technically. It's a muscle paralyzing neurotoxin that, when injected into a targeted area, relaxes the muscles beneath the skin to smooth out facial lines.
Men and women of any age can benefit from BOTOX® cosmetic treatments. If you would like to correct the signs of early aging brought about by fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® can give you excellent results. It’s safe for all ethnicities and skin types, too.
One of the great things about BOTOX® cosmetic is that it doesn't interrupt your life. There is no downtime after treatment, which means that you will be able to return to your usual activities immediately following the treatment.
Minor bruising may occur at the injection site, but this doesn't last for long. Within five to seven days, you'll begin to see results from your BOTOX® treatment, and the full results typically appear within two weeks. Each treatment lasts between three and four months. After that, you'll need to repeat the treatment to maintain your results.
One of the great things about BOTOX® is that it can be performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic achievements to achieve optimal results. For instance, for a greater smoothing effect, dermal fillers like Juvederm or Radiesse can be added to remove both dynamic and static wrinkles, which will leave your skin looking youthful and healthy. If you're interested in additional treatments, speak with your esthetician about the products and services available at our North Richland Hills location and the fort worth location in Tarrant county.
BOTOX® cosmetic is a mild neurotoxin that dramatically improves the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The technical term for it is “botulinum toxin type A,” and it works by temporarily paralyzing targeted facial muscles. What this means is that the muscles relax, which leaves your skin with a smoother finish for up to four months.
BOTOX® is primarily used on the face as a treatment that smooths wrinkles by relaxing dynamic facial muscles—or in other words, the muscles that perform repetitive movements like those around your mouth and eyes, which move whenever you smile or frown. This is why it works best to correct frown lines between the eyes, crow’s feet at the edges of the eyes, forehead lines, and the lipstick lines that form around the lips.
BOTOX® is administered to targeted facial muscles through small injections.
Typically, your procedure will take less than 30 minutes in our office.
BOTOX® wrinkle relaxers are available at the beauty boutique's state-of-the-art medispa, which is located in beautiful Houston, Texas.

Anesthesia is not required to perform a BOTOX® treatment since this is a relatively painless procedure. However, because areas around the mouth can be more sensitive, local anesthetics are generally used prior to injections used to treat lipstick lines.
These treatments cause very little discomfort. Most patients report a quick prick or pinching sensation during the injections.
One of the great things about BOTOX® treatments is that there is no downtime after the treatment. You may experience minor bruising around injection sites, but this will resolve within the next few weeks. In the meantime, you'll start seeing the full results of BOTOX® cosmetics within two weeks of your treatment.

For most people, results last between three and four months. After this time, if you want to maintain the results, you’ll need a repeat treatment.
When applied by an experienced professional, BOTOX® is considered safe. Complications are rare but can include severe headaches or overcorrection. Overcorrection is when the muscle relaxant effect is too great, which may cause slight drooping of facial muscles.
Exact costs vary depending on the area that you want to treat and the amount of correction required to produce a smooth look. At your consultation appointment, a professional will determine how many units of BOTOX® will be required. Our rate is $14.00 per unit of BOTOX® cosmetics, which means that, on average, treatments cost between $150 and $600, depending on how many units are needed.
Yes! Patients can pay for BOTOX® injections in a variety of ways: cash, all major credit cards, personal check, and healthcare financing through care credit. For more information about payment options, contact us.
Women who are pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. If you have a neurological disorder, BOTOX® should be avoided. We recommend patients come in for a free BOTOX® consultation before treatments begin, as some wrinkle types may not be treated by BOTOX®.
This will depend on your insurance plan and if treatment is deemed a medical necessity. If BOTOX® injections are only for cosmetic reasons, they will more than likely not be covered by insurance. If you need assistance in determining costs and insurance coverage options, give us a call so we can better assist you with the options you have.
BOTOX® patients may experience temporary bruising, although not everyone. Sometimes headaches can develop within the first two days, which is not common. A smaller percentage experience drooping eyelids, although it typically goes away within 14 days for these rare instances. Furthermore, these cases happen when BOTOX® on the face moves, which makes it more important for patients to not touch their face for 12 hours after their treatment.
BOTOX® is taken on a schedule, which is similar to other preventive treatments. You'll begin with two treatments that are 12 weeks apart. This allows us to see how successful it is for you. Those who aren't treated each 12th week could see fewer benefits from BOTOX®.
Depending on your progress, we’ll discuss the 12-week schedule further. Before any patient leaves our BOTOX® medspa on treatment day, we’ll schedule the next visit. This will help you remain consistent and allow for the most optimal results.
Of course! Simply schedule a consultation appointment via our online booking system here. During the no-obligation visit, we'll cover the areas that may be of concern. We'll examine your face closely while asking you to show us facial expressions. Our highly experienced BOTOX® professionals will then provide recommendations and treatment options. BOTOX® may or may not be the best for some patients based on the goals they want to achieve. As an example, some people have extra skin on the upper eyelids, which is not ideal for botox® treatment.
