What is BOTOX®?
We have all hear of Botox®, but how does it work? Botox® is injected into the facial muscles and blocks nerve impulses that cause wrinkle forming contractions. As you know, nothing in life is one-size-fits-all. It is important that your injection be placed in the correct area, while avoiding risky spots. Your Botox® plan can vary based on your gender, muscle mass, ethnicity and skin thickness, as well as your individual goals. Our service providers are trained to develop a treatment plan just for you and work with you to achieve the results you want.
Is BOTOX® Right for Me?
Skin care should start before signs of damage are evident. In Texas we are exposed to the sun year-round. Attention to your skin now can prevent years of aging later. A good routine of exfoliation, sunscreen and regular Botox can keep you looking younger longer. Even if wrinkles have set in, BOTOX® can improve your appearance and prevent the development of more.
How can I avoid bruising from BOTOX®?
- Stop taking aspirin, vitamin E, fish oil and NSAIDs at least 14 days before getting BOTOX®
- Avoid alcohol 2-3 days before your appointment
- Exercise early so you are cooled off by the time of your appointment
- No bending, straining, heavy lifting or exercise immediately after treatment
- Use ice packs before and after your treatment
- Don’t massage injection sites

When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Within days you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines that were treated continue to improve for up to 30 days. Individual results may vary.
How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?
Visible results have been shown to last from 3-4 months. Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to Dr. Kirby about what you can expect and when to schedule your next appointment.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX®Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
How much will my treatment cost?
All treatment plans are unique, but you can use this guide to approximate your costs:
- First, add the total number units you might need. For example, to treat forehead lines, you will need 6-15 units.
- Second, multiply the number of units by the cost per unit. For example, 10 units x $14 per unit = $140.
Your individual plan will be based on a number of factors including your goals and physical anatomy. Our service providers will work with you to determine the best course of treatment.
