Why do you want Botox or Dysport in Houston, Texas?

Botox and Dysport can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to create a more awake, refreshed, and youthful look. As we grow older, we all develop fine lines and wrinkles that make us look tired and aged. Botox works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkling, resulting in smoother, younger skin.

At The Oaks Plastic Surgery, we identify two types of wrinkles in our patients. The first type is a dynamic wrinkle. Dynamic wrinkles occur when the muscles in our face contract. For example, patients who stare at computer screens will use their glabellar muscles a lot, causing vertical lines in the forehead called 11s (elevens). Botox/Dysport prevent the motion of the muscles at the site of injection, and if used in the forehead, would prevent the appearance of 11s. Dynamic wrinkles that continue to occur will eventually make a permanent crease, called a static wrinkle. Many patients start Botox or Dysport injections in their mid-twenties or early thirties to prevent wrinkles before they start. This is called prophylactic Botox and is a beauty secret for many models and celebrities.

Benefits of Botox or Dysport in Houston, Texas

There are several other off label uses of Botox or Dysport that can narrow facial contours, prevent nasal droop when smiling, or even correct a gummy smile. In patients with a boxy jawline due to overactivity or enlargement of one of the facial muscles (masseter hypertrophy), Botox or Dysport can be injected into the masseter muscle to narrow the lower part of the face, creating a thinner oval or heart-shaped face. This can also help with teeth grinding, otherwise known as bruxism.

In Houston, Texas many people suffer from excess sweating. Botox or Dysport can be used to significantly decrease sweating of the armpits so that you can enjoy hot, humid Houston events without worrying about embarrassing sweat stains or ruining your clothing. Additionally, Botox can be injected in the palms to decrease embarrassing sweaty handshakes.

If you suffer from migraine headaches, Botox can truly be a life-changing treatment. Properly placed Botox/Dysport in the right patient can significantly decrease headache occurrences and severity.
