Am I a Candidate for Botox Treatment in Austin?
If you’re bothered by forehead wrinkles, vertical furrows between the eyebrows or “crow’s feet” around the eyes, then you may be a candidate for Botox in Austin. This treatment is ideal for patients looking to enhance facial features while creating a more youthful appearance without going under the knife. Botox is FDA-approved for individuals age 18 to 65. This treatment is ideal for people who are physically healthy and have no history of neuromuscular diseases and who are not pregnant or nursing.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox treatments effectively smooth skin by weakening or softening the muscles that cause wrinkles and lines to form. When injected, Botox works by preventing signals from the nerve cells reaching the muscles, which essentially leaves the targeted muscles without instructions to contract. Selectively relaxing certain muscles in the face causes the overlying skin to soften and wrinkles that result from these contracted muscles fade.
Treatments vary depending on your individual needs but typically last around 10 – 15 minutes. Although anesthesia is not required, your doctor may numb the area prior to injection using a topical anesthetic. Our Austin Botox patients are able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment as there is little to no downtime. Although patients are advised to avoid strenuous exercise the day of injection.
Results are visible within 7-10 days of treatment and will remain anywhere from 4 to 6 months depending on the individual patient. Most of our Austin Botox patients repeat treatment every 4 – 6 months to maintain desired results.

Why Get Botox Injections?
Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States today. Even during tough economic times, the demand for Botox in Austin and throughout the U.S. has remained high. Most of our patients view consistent aesthetic treatments like Botox injections as a good investment in themselves, and with good reason.
When the economy is dragging and the job market becomes increasingly competitive, people seek every bit of competitive edge they can get. Aesthetic upkeep often becomes a tool for professional self-preservation rather than a personal indulgence. Many patients equate coming in a few times a year for Botox treatment with their regular visits to their hair stylists for highlights. The injections are an essential part of their beauty regimen and an easy way to appear more youthful and energetic.
Botox patients can expect to enjoy the following benefits from treatment:
- Smoothing out of vertical furrows between the eyebrows (often referred to as scowl lines)
- Softening of forehead lines, creating a more relaxed and youthful appearance
- Reduction in the appearance of crow’s feet and fine lines around the eyes
- Lifting of drooping, tired eyebrows for a more rested and refreshed look
