What Is BOTOX?
Fighting the signs of aging in the upper face and forehead can be simple and effective with BOTOX Cosmetic from Modern Medical Spa. Over time, repetitive facial expressions often leave behind forehead wrinkles, frown lines ("elevens"), and Crow's feet. When performed at the hands of a seasoned professional, BOTOX can temporarily help smooth these fine lines and wrinkles, offering a more youthful, age-defying result. Our highly experienced aesthetic team is thrilled to offer the option of BOTOX to Dallas, TX men and women.
FDA approved to temporarily treat frown lines, BOTOX Cosmetic is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that weakens the facial muscle contractions used to make expressions in the forehead and eye area. The wrinkles created from these repetitious facial expressions are called “dynamic wrinkles” and often remain, even when the face is relaxed. BOTOX injections can reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles by temporarily restricting facial expressions and allowing the skin time to recover.

Should I Get Botox?
As a noninvasive facial rejuvenation treatment, BOTOX may be ideal for those who wish to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their upper face without surgery. It may also be effective at helping younger adults head off the appearance of dynamic expression lines in the face. In certain instances, BOTOX can even be used as an alternative solution to combating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), recurring migraines, or other conditions. You may be a good candidate for BOTOX Cosmetic if you have:
- Forehead wrinkles
- Noticeable furrows between the brows
- Crow's feet around the eyes
If you experience deeper or more prominent creases within the face, an injectable filler may be better suited for your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, our experienced team will help you determine whether BOTOX or other treatment options are ideal for achieving your desired cosmetic outcome.
What to Expect With BOTOX
BOTOX treatments are completed by our certified injectors in a private treatment room at Modern Medical Spa. These services are quick and easy, and typically only take around 10 – 15 minutes to complete. After the procedure, you may resume your normal routine, but you should not engage in strenuous activities for at least a day. We also recommend that you sleep with your head elevated for the first night and avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the solution to other areas. It is common to experience slight bruising, swelling, or redness for 2 – 3 days following this wrinkle reducer treatment. BOTOX results are generally visible after about a week and typically last 3 – 4 months. Our team can help you determine when to make touch-up appointments for BOTOX at our Dallas, TX facility to maintain your aesthetic results.
How many BOTOX treatments will I need?
The number of BOTOX treatments given will vary according to individual goals and the severity and depth of your facial wrinkles. Our team will recommend the correct quantity of BOTOX injections according to your desired aesthetic outcomes and whether you wish to address the forehead, brow area, or Crow's feet. To keep up with your cosmetic results, our team could suggest scheduling BOTOX treatments every 3 – 4 months at Modern Medical Spa.
Can I have BOTOX with additional aesthetic procedures?
BOTOX often pairs well with other nonsurgical services at Modern Medical Spa for those who wish to target aging concerns. If you experience more extensive and pronounced wrinkles and creases, we may suggest adding a filler to help you achieve maximum results. To further maximize a younger-looking appearance, we can perform additional complementary services, such as facials or PRP with microneedling.
Is there a difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
While wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, are provided to smooth facial creases by temporarily freezing your muscle contractions, dermal fillers are a different collection of cosmetic solutions that improve volume in the face. Dermal fillers are intended to plump gaunt-looking features and reduce static wrinkles. During your consultation, our team can decide if you might be a good candidate for a filler (like JUVÉDERM® or Restylane®) to complement your BOTOX outcomes.
Is there a comparable cosmetic injectable option?
BOTOX is a specific formulation of wrinkle relaxer that exists within a range of other comparable options, such as XEOMIN®, Jeuveau®, and Dysport®. These wrinkle-reducing options contain type A botulinum toxin, but each one is created a little differently to address certain issues.
