What is BOTOX?
Our North Texas area dermatology offices are proud to offer patients the latest in skin rejuvenation. At our offices in Dallas, McKinney, Allen, Rockwall, and Gainesville, BOTOX injections are available and are administered by one of our seasoned practitioners.
BOTOX is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that is injected into the skin to relax the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles. The most common injection sites are on the forehead, around the eyebrows, and on the sides of the eyes, commonly known as Crow’s feet. BOTOX combats the signs of aging by creating a softer, smoother skin appearance and diminishing wrinkles without subjecting the patient to surgery. BOTOX is created by Botulinum toxin type A and is safe and effective to use for the treatment of wrinkles. Our dermatology office uses BOTOX for an aesthetic improvement, but this medication also treats migraines, excessive sweating, various forms of incontinence, and crossed eyes. BOTOX typically lasts for about 3-4 months. Those seeking BOTOX for underarm sweating should expect results to last up to 6 months, however, these results vary per patient.
The best candidates for BOTOX are those who are unhappy with the facial wrinkles in the upper portion of the face, such as the forehead, or those who suffer from excessive sweating under the arms. Those suffering from excessive sweating can be treated as early as age 18. BOTOX is suitable for anyone seeking a nonsurgical approach to rejuvenated skin.
"Tammi Dobbs is very attentive and sweet. She really listens to what you have to say always gives options in treatment rather than pushing one. She is by far the best dermatologist I've gone to."- L.B. / Google / Sep 01, 2015

BOTOX treatments are very common in our dermatology practice and most patients are in and out within 30 minutes. A numbing agent will first be applied to the injection sites, which will be determined before treatment. The medication is then administered through a fine needle into the marked areas. The dosage varies depending on the condition of the skin and how much wrinkling is visible. BOTOX is an outpatient procedure and after treatment, patients can immediately go back to their daily routines.
What to Expect
After a BOTOX injection, patients can expect some minor swelling and redness at the injection sites. This goes away quickly and is generally not noticeable within about an hour after the treatment. Exercise should be avoided or limited within the first 18-24 hours, and patients should sleep upright the first night. The results following a BOTOX treatment are not immediate. It generally takes about 7 days for patients to see their smoother, softer complexion begin to appear. At our dermatology office, our patients love their results so much, they come back every quarter to get reinjected so that they can maintain their gorgeous results.
