Botox services offered in Houston, TX

Wrinkles and fine lines are features we will all face eventually, but if you’re still quite young, they might seem particularly prominent and bothersome. With Botox® injections at Balance Wellness Center, you can smooth common wrinkles like crow’s feet or frown lines that come from your facial expressions. Ronald Bryant, MD carefully performs the injections so they don’t fully prevent those expressions, but help reduce the wrinkles.  To learn more about Botox and how it works, call Balance Wellness Center or set up an appointment online today.

Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable, which means it alters your appearance in some way without providing other benefits for your health. The injectable has a few separate clinical applications, but most people are familiar with it because of its ability to smooth wrinkles and fine lines. 

The key component in Botox is called botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that temporarily halts targeted muscle movements. This process smooths creases on the skin around those muscles for as long as Botox stays active. 

When you visit Balance Wellness Center for a Botox consultation, you can discuss your goals and expectations with the team. They determine how many injections you’ll need and where to place them. 

What does Botox treat?

Botox doesn’t treat just any wrinkle, it specializes in smoothing dynamic wrinkles. These creases, most of which are on your face, appear because of expressions and other repeated or ongoing muscle movements. 

Some of the most common wrinkles treated with Botox are:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead lines
  • Chin creases

While Botox isn’t the same as dermal fillers, many people choose to get both of them for a complete facial enhancement. Dermal fillers are volumizing injectables that can address the larger wrinkles that Botox cannot treat. 

How long do my Botox results last?

Many people enjoy Botox because it gives them 3-4 months of smoother, wrinkle-free, more youthful skin. While this might not seem like a long time in the course of your entire life, you can safely get Botox repeatedly if you enjoyed the results the first time. 

When you see your wrinkles start to reappear several months after an initial Botox session at  Balance Wellness Center, you may contact the team to schedule another appointment. They place the injections just as carefully as before to keep your results consistent every time. 

How should I prepare for Botox injections?

There isn’t much you need to do to prepare for Botox injections ahead of time except to come in for a consultation with the team at Balance Wellness Center. Aside from discussing your goals, a consultation for Botox also involves a review of your medical history. The team ensures Botox injections are safe for you.
