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 is an amazing Doctor with a fantastic bed side manner. I went in for some Botox and he was so thorough; he did a perfect job on my placement and his prices are better then any other doctor in the area. He and his staff are excellent and efficient in what they do. Thanks Dr. Kasden I will definitely be back."- T.F. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2018
"Five Stars - I was very apprehensive about choosing a plastic surgeon after the stories that I had heard from some of my friends about different surgeons they had gone to. I did some homework and began seeing Dr. Kasden about 2 years ago for Botox injections. I immediately fell in love with everything about Dr. Kasdens office his staff, the non-stuffy atmosphere, and him! He had a way of putting me at ease, and even making me laugh, when I really didnt know what to expect. He thoroughly explained how Botox works and what the possible side effects could be, and answered all of my questions (I had a LOT) in a professional and humorous way. After that, I began seeing his Aesthetician, Amy, for my Botox injections as it was a little easier to get in to see her (Dr. Kasden books pretty quickly). Amy is AMAZING and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great Aesthetician and shes right there in Dr. Kasdens office, too! I recently decided to have Laser Lipo done on my neck and chin and didnt think twice about who I would like to perform the procedure without a doubt I wanted Dr. Kasden to do it. He did it in his office in Southlake (which is awesome in itself) and managed to keep me at ease and laughing the whole time, and it turned out FANTASTIC. He told me exactly what to expect and even called me from his personal cell phone after the procedure to check on me! I am SO pleased with the results, I still cant believe that my double chin is gone! It has made such a dramatic difference, especially in pictures it easily made me look 10 pounds lighter. If you are looking for an office that will make you feel comfortable and an amazing Plastic Surgeon that will answer all of your questions and put you at ease while keeping a great sense of humor, this is the place to go!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 16, 2012
"Fantastic Results!!! - I saw Dr. Kasden in early 2013 for rhinoplasty and a breast augmentation to replace the saline breast implants I had since 1996. He spent two hours with me, truly listened to what I wanted, answered all my questions and made me laugh several times. He is very down to earth and treats you like a friend. His office manager, Beth, went over everything and we scheduled the surgery, she was so helpful and made everything so easy and stress free. The day of my surgery Dr. Kasden came in pre-op and made me feel at ease, he has a wonderful sense of humor but he also cares about his patients and you can tell he loves what he does. My surgery lasted around six hours and I went home that evening. I donâ??t remember having much pain at all. Dr. Kasden called me the next day to check on me, I really felt fine and I did not have any complications. A week later I went in to have the packing out of my nose, thank god, and when he finally showed me my nose I wanted to hug him! As swollen as it was it looked amazing. It has been one year post-op and my nose just gets better and better. I look like me but with a straight nose and one that it not so large at the tip. People who have known me for years cannot tell I had rhinoplasty. I have been asked if I lost weight, got botox etcâ?¦ but not one person has asked of I had my nose done- I love it!!! My breasts now look amazing! The saline implants were too high profile and not big around enough for me so they looked like bananas, he used a lower profile silicone implant with a bigger circumference and my breasts look full yet natural, he also removed some scar tissue that had built up over the years. I would recommend Dr. Kasden to any friend or family wanting to improve on something that bothers them. I will continue to see him to help me ease through my forties while looking as if I have not aged one bit!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Mar 12, 2014
"Excellent Surgeon!!! - I have been going to see Dr. Kasden over the last five years. Both he and his staff are absolutely phenomenal and make each visit a positive experience. My procedures have ranged from skin lesion removal, botox and fillers to a breast augmentation. My results have been nothing but wonderful each time, especially my breast augmentation!! Although professional, Dr. Kasden has a great personality, is very thorough and maintains an incredible bedside manner. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you can't go wrong and won't be disappointed if you choose Dr. Kasden."- Anonymous / Vitals / Apr 23, 2013
"Fabulous experience - Always a fabulous experience. Dr. Kasden is patient and fully explains everything involved. I received Botox on forehead to relieve my "squint" lines. Excellent work!!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 19, 2016
Ideal Candidates for BOTOX®
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.
Procedure Technique for BOTOX®
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 from BOTOX®
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 about BOTOX®
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.
