Botox® Injectables

Discovered in the 1950s, Botox® has been used therapeutically for years to treat a variety of medical conditions.


While it seems that nearly everyone is offering Botox® these days, you need a board-certified, experienced provider to ensure that you receive the best treatment with outstanding results.
 
Rodgers Dermatology in Frisco, Texas, has treated thousands of patients using Botox® with consistently incredible results. Dr. Rodgers provides Botox® treatments for patients in the entire Frisco area, including Dallas, Fort Worth, and Plano.

 

Find Natural Results w/ Botox in Frisco, Texas

Botox® is by far the most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatment in the United States. Dr. Rodgers provides personalized treatment plans using Botox® to help patients suffering from fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging, sun exposure, and other damaging elements. 

During an initial consultation, Dr. Rodgers learns the patient’s desired results, whether that is addressing lines across the forehead, between or around the eyes, around the lips, or on the neck and jowls. Depending on various factors, Dr. Rodgers may recommend Botox®, either alone or with other injectables, to achieve the patient’s desired result. 

Botox® treatments are known for their convenience, as there is no anesthesia, downtime, or scarring required for the treatments to be effective. Most patients find their treatment takes only a matter of minutes in our office. Results typically fully appear within a few days following treatment and last approximately three to five months (results vary from patient to patient). 

For patients experiencing excessive sweating, Dr. Rodgers may also recommend Botox® treatments to reduce this often embarrassing condition, called hyperhidrosis. While Botox® injections may not be covered by insurance when used for cosmetic purposes, it may cover part of the treatment, if prescribed for hyperhidrosis. Our professional staff can help you navigate your insurance and make sure that all bases are covered during the consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Botox

Botox®, also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, is an injectable substance that temporarily blocks the signal from nerves to muscles. At Rodgers Dermatology, we use Botox® for a variety of conditions, including the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles in the face and to reduce excessive sweating.

When Botox® is injected, it effectively blocks the nerve signal to the muscle and causes it to relax, resulting in the reduction of wrinkles and a smoother, fuller appearance.

Botox® provides patients with a rejuvenated, youthful appearance by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles across the face, including crow’s feet around the eyes, worry lines around the mouth, and frown lines and horizontal lines across the forehead.

At Rodgers Dermatology in Frisco, Texas, Dr. Rodgers may also recommend Botox® for other conditions, such as excessive sweating or for those people who suffer from migraines.

Botox® injections relax the muscles that are responsible for wrinkles by blocking nerve receptors around those muscles. This process prevents the muscle from responding to signals and creating a more relaxed, fuller, and wrinkle-free appearance!
Utilizing a finely gauged needle, Dr. Rodgers injects Botox® into the muscles in your face that are causing wrinkles and lines. Dr. Rodgers regularly receives ongoing training to ensure the highest quality Botox® procedures in our Frisco, Texas dermatology clinic.
While many patients may experience almost no pain when receiving Botox® injections, some patients may experience brief, mild discomfort during the procedure. This discomfort often depends on the location of the injection due to the size of the needle Dr. Rodgers uses. 

If the patient is concerned about sensitivity during and following the procedure, Dr. Rodgers may instruct the patient to use vibration, ice, or even a topical numbing agent to increase comfort.

Patients typically experience results from Botox® in approximately one week. However, it may take up to two weeks for them to notice the maximum effect. Depending on the severity of the wrinkles, patients may not see deep wrinkles soften fully; however, with prolonged use, these deep lines and wrinkles may soften over time.
Botox® injections typically provide results for approximately four months. Dr. Rodgers typically recommends a follow-up appointment for additional treatments when patients notice their lines and wrinkles starting to deepen.
Following Botox® injections at Rodgers Dermatology, Dr. Rodgers often recommends that patients use the muscles being treated for approximately one hour following treatment to help ensure those muscles absorb the Botox®. Avoid massaging the area, as this could affect the outcome of your treatment.
Possible side effects of Botox® include: 

  • Small, red bumps at the injection site that typically recede after 30 minutes. 
  • Bruising around the injection site
  • Swelling or pain at the injection site 
  • Drooping eyelids or eyebrows

If you are experiencing more complicated or long-lasting side effects, please contact Rodgers Dermatology immediately.

Approved by the FDA for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, Botox® is generally considered safe. It is produced and maintained under sterile conditions to ensure the safety and health of our patients in the Frisco, Texas area.
As with most cosmetic dermatology treatments and procedures, Botox® is charged by the quantity of units used during the procedure. During your initial appointment, Dr. Rodgers makes a personalized recommendation for the amount of units to address your lines and wrinkles, and our friendly staff will provide you with an upfront price so there are no surprises following treatments.
Injectables provide safe, effective treatment options for wrinkles and fine lines, as well as providing a fuller, smoother appearance across the face and neck. Injectables are also used to treat down-turned smiles, lip enhancement, jowl reduction, and more. Depending on the patient’s desired results, Dr. Rodgers may choose to use either Botox®, Dysport, or Xeomin to achieve those results.
