To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. in Southlake, TX is proud to offer BOTOX to local men and women. This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic lines can still exist. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle. To correct these dynamic lines, BOTOX is injected to soften the skin. BOTOX is most commonly placed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Kasden between the brows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.
"Dr. Kasden made my first surgery experience very comfortable, ensuring I knew all about my procedure, and giving me AMAZING results! He provides extremely well pre and post op care, and his office staff is always very friendly. I recommend him to everyone I know!"- C. / Healthgrades / Sep 18, 2018
"I am a 41yrs old black female and this is my first plastic surgery experience (performed Friday and today is Monday morning). I did my homework on the abdominoplasty procedure for months and scheduled several consultations. I'm so lucky that Dr. Kasden was my first consultation. He literally spent 2 hours with me discussing the procedure and answering my questions. He allowed me to watch a video of his work and he even drew a diagram so that I could better understand the procedure. Sharon, the office manager was just as awesome and personable and she was always available to answer my questions whenever I called. Recovery was tough at first, but Dr. Kasden and the staff at Baylor Hospital in Irving were stellar in being attentive and ensuring my comfort. Not only do I recommend Dr. Kasden for plastic surgery, but I'm already researching my next procedure (I want to transfer my own fat into my breasts). I cant see myself going to another surgeon."- S.P. / Yelp / Jul 08, 2019

BOTOX is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically. BOTOX is also used as a preventive treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may opt for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is more long term. The plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. offers facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgeries as great options.
BOTOX injections are done as an outpatient procedure directly in our office. If it is your first time to visit us in Southlake, TX for BOTOX, we may perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make various facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to mark where the injections are to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities almost right away.
What to Expect
After the injection, you can resume your typical activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly bruised, red, or swollen for a few days, but you will not experience any severe or lasting side effects. In most cases, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments to maintain your results.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BOTOX cost?
Your cost for a BOTOX treatment will depend on how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, your injector will create your personal treatment plan before he can estimate your costs. BOTOX can produce great results when performed by a skilled injector, but it can also be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can earn points for BOTOX treatments and other Allergan products, like Juvéderm.
How long will my results last?
The results from BOTOX can last up to four months. Most patients schedule an appointment every season to refresh their results, but you may want to come back sooner. If you are getting BOTOX while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule appointments further apart. After listening to your goals and creating your treatment plan, your injector will be better able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm) are both popular cosmetic treatments that decrease wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX relaxes overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corner's of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Wrinkle fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface. Depending on your goals, your injector may recommend BOTOX, injectable fillers, or a combination of both for a liquid "facelift."
Is BOTOX safe?
When administered properly, BOTOX rarely causes any complications. With that said, it is still very important to find someone who has experience in handling this medication. Too much of the product can cause an undesirable outcome. A skilled injector will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. One of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today, it is safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used to treat medical conditions such as facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
