Botox® in McAllen, TX

Every time you make a facial expression like laughing, smiling, or frowning, the muscles of your face contract, creating lines of expression. In youth, such lines of expression, like squinching your nose, can be cute; but over time, these lines become permanently etched wrinkles in the skin, making you appear older, tired, angry, and sad. Botox® treatments target the muscles of facial expression to soften existing wrinkles and lines and also prevent the progression and deepening of these lines, leaving you appearing younger and revitalized. We offer Botox® to those living in and around McAllen, Brownsville, the Rio Grande Valley, and all of South Texas.

Actual Patient

How Long Does Botox® Last?

The good news is that Botox® treatments are not permanent. Botox® treatments tend to last an average of three months but can last up to four to six months, and the results last longer as patients continue their treatments. Botox® is nearly painless, takes less than 15 minutes, and there is minimal downtime. It is important for patients to remember that although Botox® can be used as a stand-alone treatment, you can also combine it with other combination therapies offered in our MedSpa, such as laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels and dermal fillers, resulting in higher patient satisfaction with more powerful results.

What Other Health Benefits Does Botox® Offer?

Botox® is FDA-approved as a treatment for excessive underarm sweating, or “axillary hyperhidrosis”. Botox® treatments consist of small, almost painless injections to the underarms that take less than 15 minutes. It works by blocking the nerves that stimulate sweat glands, meaning that decreased sweating can be noticed as quickly as two weeks after treatment, with results lasting between six to eight months.

In addition, studies have shown that patients treated with Botox® actually feel happier since they are unable to frown unconsciously, thereby stopping the feedback of feeling upset.

When Should I Start Botox® Treatments?

Patients sometimes ask when is the right time to start using Botox®, and a good way of approaching this is to ask yourself if the lines of expression on your face are becoming permanent wrinkles – this is independent of how old you are and depends more on your skin type and history of sun exposure. If patients already have wrinkles, then the question becomes: do they want their wrinkles to progress?

Patients are sometimes afraid of Botox® because they think it can be harmful or permanent, or they’ve had friends who have had Botox® treatments at other practices whose results look unnatural. The truth is that Botox® is one of the safest drugs ever released in history, with minimal risks or adverse effects when injected properly by trained clinicians. Botox® is only a tool, and your results are only as good as the person injecting you.
