What is BOTOX?

When a patient experiences wrinkled skin, a BOTOX® injection is a simple and effective way to rejuvenate the skin. BOTOX®, derived from the Botulinum toxin type A, is injected by San Antonio dermatologist, Dr. Garcia. BOTOX® targets and ceases the muscle activity that is responsible for causing wrinkles. With injections, Dr. Garcia can treat moderate to severe lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet. Most patients will notice dramatic results in as little as 7 days with effects lasting up to 4 months. This FDA-approved treatment can be used several times per year.

Best Candidates?

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.

Administering BOTOX

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.

Expected Cost

The average cost for a syringe of BOTOX is about $350. The amount of medication used will vary by patient; some patients will only need one syringe, while others may need 2-3, which will increase the overall cost. During the initial consultation, we will evaluate your skin and determine how much BOTOX should be used to attain the desired results.
