At our practice in Austin, BOTOX is our most popular treatment! Although age comes with life experiences and wonderful memories, it also comes with some unwanted baggage. Our skin sags, wrinkles, and loosens up, giving the body and (more particularly) the face an older appearance that some people aren’t quite ready to have. At Personique On The Spot in Austin, we offer an opportunity to set back the clock a bit and regain that firm and youthful look that you want with BOTOX.
Botox is one of the best solutions to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. These FDA-approved injections work by preventing the nerve-produced synapses from reaching the muscles, relaxing the area, and smoothing out the skin. This is also why many younger patients request a little Botox to prevent future wrinkles. There is also the fact that Botox stays in the area where the injection occurred, rather than migrating to other areas of the body. This enhances safety while prolonging the anti-aging results of Botox injections.
BOTOX offers so many benefits to our Austin patients! Here are just a few of them:
Ideal candidates for BOTOX injectable are:
Botox injections work most effectively in areas that are constantly being exercised and always moving, like around the forehead and the eyebrows. Botox is commonly used to smooth out scowl lines (between the brows) and crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes).
Besides diminishing wrinkles, Botox can also be administered to raise the eyebrows to make the patient look more awake and refreshed.
Botox isn’t only for cosmetic purposes, either. It’s frequently used to treat migraines and muscle spasms, and even to reduce heavy sweating by desensitizing the nerves around these areas.
Botox for Men in Austin, Texas is a growing trend. Traditionally, temporary or semi-permanent cosmetic procedures have been considered a trend among women. But these days, men have become more confident about taking pride in their appearance and doing whatever it takes to reduce the signs of aging or other physical “flaws” that they’d like to see addressed.
Often, it is men that rely on looking “put together” in their careers that choose to go in the direction of procedures like Botox, as this treatment fits easily into their busy lifestyle without the need for recovery time.
More invasive cosmetic surgery options have several flaws, explaining why the popularity of Botox (and other similar procedures) for men has increased by over 250% in the last ten years.
The first step to getting BOTOX in Austin is to schedule a consultation with one of our technicians. When you come in for this appointment, we will have you address your desires from BOTOX, answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding the treatment, and give you a personal evaluation. If you agree with the assessment, then we can either administer the BOTOX immediately following your consultation, or you can schedule a treatment session with our Patient Coordinator for another day that works best for you.
As with any medical appointment, you must keep an open and honest dialogue concerning your health and medical history. Transparency allows our staff to make the best and safest decisions when it comes to your treatment, as well as prevents any potential risks or side effects.
Botox treatment is very fast and effective. In just under 15 minutes, the patient receives some local numbing, and a series of injections are administered to their “problem areas.” The appearance of wrinkles is instantly reduced as the skin regains its youthful elasticity and glow. Since the treatment is so minimally invasive, the patient can resume normal activities immediately without any required downtime or recovery necessary.
Once you are finished with your session, you may be asked to stay for about 10 – 15 minutes so that we can make sure you have no allergic reactions to the toxin. Once you are cleared, then you can go about your daily routine. You will be given a list of instructions to follow so that you can the most out of your BOTOX as well as a healthy recovery.
We highly suggest waiting at least 24 hours before you exercise to avoid spreading the filler to other parts of your body. Not only could it reduce the effectiveness of the BOTOX, but it could also increase the likelihood of bruising. You are encouraged to focus on controlling your facial expressions like frowning and smiling and lifting your eyebrows.
Additionally, for the first 24 hours, you should avoid wearing makeup, ingesting alcohol, or taking painkillers of any kind. If you do feel any pain or discomfort, you can lightly use an ice pack for 10 – 15 minutes at a time.
Finally, try to avoid any sun or heat exposure for the first 1 – 2 days, so stay away from the following:

BOTOX injections are not a painful procedure, however, some patients have expressed feeling a pinching or stinging sensation from the needle insertion. Any pain felt will be temporary and should be very minimal.
In most instances, Botox treatments are needed every 4-6 months. However, many patients find that after the first few touchups, the muscles eventually become used to relaxing, so treatments can be spaced out longer.
You will be able to notice firmer skin immediately after your treatment, however, your muscles will take 2 – 4 days to loosen up to be able to move freely again. It may take up to 2 weeks to see the maximum results from BOTOX.
Many of our clients will combine their BOTOX with other facial treatments, such as a Chemical Peel or Microdermabrasion, however it varies on a patient-to-patient basis. If you are interested in having additional procedures or treatments performed, please discuss this with the technician during your consultation. They will be able to use their experience and knowledge to determine the best treatment combinations for you.
BOTOX is a very safe procedure that our staff has plenty of experience with, however, there are some potential risks and side effects that are associated with the treatment, such as:
Most of these side effects should correct themselves over a few days, however, if you are noticing any long-lasting or overly concerning issues, please contact our office immediately.
