One of Dr. Beck’s favorite injectable treatments, is BOTOX. He offers this facial rejuvenation treatment to Dallas area patients who wish to soften and decrease forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. BOTOX is a cosmetic treatment to help smoothen facial wrinkles and combat the visible signs of aging without having to undergo surgery. It is a product that is derived from Botulinum Toxin Type A (or BTX-A), which blocks the facial nerve endings to temporarily paralyze the muscles. When this happens, the muscles relax and stop wrinkling. This function delivers the best approach to smoothen forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines or laugh lines. The ideal candidates for this treatment are those who have moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and desire a nonsurgical approach to treatment. The result is a rejuvenated appearance that can last up to 3-4 months.
"First Time Cosmetic Treatment - Dallas, TX - Dr. Beck is highly professional and made me feel really comfortable, as this was my first cosmetic treatment. He takes great care in the level of service he provides and answered all my questions and made me feel I was in good hands. I'm looking forward to going back for more cosmetic needs when they arise. - - My motivation for Botox was to help eliminate some deep set wrinkles and to help prevent the onset of others. I'm in my mid 30's now and prevention is key - so I hear. The treatment went smoothly and it was comfortable. I'm still awaiting the final result but am starting to see some already! Happy!!"- D. / RealSelf / May 08, 2016
"Exceptionally Skilled & Knowledgeable - North Dallas, TX - I am extremely happy with the results of my Voluma and Botox. Dr. Beck is extraordinarily knowledgeable, especially about all of the products and how they work in the body. He is so precise with injections (& I felt nothing by the way) that I had no bruising or swelling at all (contrary to my past filler procedures with my former physician). I was impressed by the amount of time Dr. Beck spent discussing everything with me, answering my questions, and performing the procedures. He is very methodical and professional yet very personable. I will definitely be his dedicated client for all of my future cosmetic needs! In addition, his staff is refreshingly friendly and helpful. I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Beck and his staff."- P. / RealSelf / Jul 19, 2016

Tiny doses of BOTOX are injected into the skin where wrinkles are noticeable. It is normally done in the doctor’s office and the procedure can last from 15 to 30 minutes. The number of injections and dose amounts administered depends on the location and the severity of the case. Patients are first marked with ink prior to the injection so that the practitioner can accurately inject the areas in need of wrinkle softening. This procedure does not create any discomfort other than a normal prick that comes with a small needle. Sometimes a numbing cream may be applied to help with the patient’s discomfort. Patients will be able to go home right after treatment with no downtime from their normal routine.
What to Expect
After treatment, mild swelling and bruising may appear on the injection spots. Patients are advised to limit exercise and to sleep in an upright position the same night as the treatment. The redness and swelling will only last for a few hours, but some patients may experience bruising for several days. There are bruising medications, such as Arnica, that patients can take a week prior to treatment to help minimize bruising. The results from a BOTOX treatment take 5-7 days to appear. When they do, the face will look smoother and brighter, and patients will feel rejuvenated by their fresh appearance.
A syringe of BOTOX can range from $250 to $1,000. Depending on the patient’s case, a session may use 1 to 3 syringes, or more. During the initial consultation, the practitioner will be able to assess how many units/syringes are needed to attain the patient’s desired results.

How Safe Is It?
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 practitioner will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the facial muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today. It is safe and effective, and approved by the FDA. BOTOX is also used to treat other medical conditions such as squints, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking and migraines.
There is an ongoing trend where people who wish to have BOTOX treatments will gather together and administer the BOTOX doses themselves called ‘BOTOX cocktail parties’. This is very risky. BOTOX, when administered incorrectly, may paralyze unintended muscles that can result in an abnormal facial appearance. BOTOX treatments should be done in a medical setting with an experienced, skilled injector.
Same As BOTOX?
In recent years, BOTOX has seen some competition as other drugs have been approved by the FDA and introduced to the aesthetic market. Dysport and Xeomin are muscle relaxers similar to BOTOX. Each has its specific trending function that can be addressed during the initial consultation. Sometimes, a combination of the drugs is used to treat various areas. For example, BOTOX for frown lines, and Dysport for crow’s feet.
Are Fillers Better?
BOTOX and fillers are both popular cosmetic treatments with the ability to decrease wrinkles and smoothen facial areas. The difference with each is the way the substances function to create the rejuvenating effect. Injectable fillers add volume under the skin to fill hollow areas and decrease the appearance of wrinkles on the surface. BOTOX, on the other hand, relaxes the muscles underneath the skin so that the muscles cannot contract, allowing a softer effect on the surface. It is very common for patients to undergo treatment using both a muscle relaxer and an injectable filler to attain optimal results.
Today, practitioners are treating patients of all ages with BOTOX. For some individuals, for example those as young as 30, BOTOX is considered a preventative way to prevent facial wrinkles. For others (i.e. 40 years old and older), it is a rejuvenation effort to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Older individuals (55 and up) will still receive great benefit from having BOTOX injections, but for some, a facelift technique might be a better option to consider.
How Long Does It Last?
A BOTOX injection will last between 3-4 months. The treatment can be repeated every quarter and for most patients who receive this treatment, they usually come back for more. BOTOX is an effective, easy and safe way to minimize the appearance of facial wrinkles. Patients consider it a part of their normal beauty routine.
