The BOTOX Benefits

One of BOTOX's signature benefits is how quickly you'll notice results. You could see the effects of BOTOX as early as 3 to 4 days after injections, but more likely within 10 to 14 days.

Some of the advantages of BOTOX include the following:

  • Smooths crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, and lip lines
  • Improves the appearance of skin dimpling on your chin
  • Lifts the corners of the mouth, enhancing your smile
  • Softens a jawline thought to be too square
  • Diminishes unsightly neckbands
  • Corrects a gummy smile (when your smile shows too much upper gum)

How Often Should You Get BOTOX?

Most people plan to schedule their BOTOX injections once every four months. However, you may need your injections more or less frequently because everybody has a different body.

If BOTOX is something that you've considered, Dr. Meade would be a great doctor to meet with and get to know. Or, if you have more questions about the process, feel free to contact our outstanding team. We're here and happy to help! Contact us online or call 214.823.1691.

Your Initial Consultation

At your initial consultation, Dr. Meade will listen to your desires and address your concerns. It's also a valuable opportunity to understand the intricacies of the procedures that best serve you and your aesthetic goals. 

Additionally, there may be surgical and non-surgical procedures you've not thought about that could be an even better fit for the look you'd like to achieve. Once a pathway is set and agreed upon, you'll receive a complete cost estimation.

Preparing for BOTOX

While BOTOX treatments are minimally invasive, it's important to follow Dr. Meade's pre- and post-procedure instructions. By doing so, you'll be setting the very best circumstances for a successful visit and a quick healing process with a beautiful result. 

In preparation for your BOTOX injections, Dr. Meade may ask of you:

  • To undergo other medical evaluations and laboratory testing
  • To adjust or completely cease your medication and dietary supplements
  • To refrain from smoking, consumption of alcohol and drugs
  • To be well-hydrated, especially in the days leading up to your treatment

What to Expect During The BOTOX Procedure

A very thin needle injects small amounts of purified protein into wrinkle-producing muscles, relaxing them and preserving your natural facial expressions. BOTOX injections usually take less than 15 minutes.

How Should I Sleep After BOTOX?

Sleeping on your stomach or side can cause BOTOX to migrate to other areas of your face, causing unevenness or bruising. Sleeping on your back minimizes the risk of it migrating and ensures it stays where it should be.

BOTOX Recovery

You may resume normal activities immediately. One note of caution: Don't rub or massage the treated areas after the wrinkle treatment because it can cause the botulinum toxin to migrate to another area of your face.

How Soon After BOTOX Treatments Can I Wash My Face?

You can gently wash your face straight after having BOTOX. However, for seven days after the procedure, you should avoid facials, massages, and other treatments that put direct pressure on the face.
