What is BOTOX?
Battling the early visible effects of aging in the upper face can be quick and worry-free with BOTOX injections at CosmeticGyn Center. BOTOX injections are also recommended for people who want to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. Dr. Otto Huertas is happy to provide BOTOX injectable treatments for his patients in Dallas, TX.
This injectable treatment can help to achieve a youthful-looking outcome. BOTOX injections are a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A that temporarily blocks the movement of the muscles used to create certain facial expressions on the forehead region. The creases formed from these repetitive facial expressions are known as “dynamic” since they are the result of muscle activity. Eventually, these expression lines stay visible, even if the face is totally at rest. BOTOX injections can significantly smooth the appearance of these lines by blocking these muscle movements.
"Dr. Huertas is a very kind and knowledgable doctor. I’m very happy to have found him. He does biodentical hormone replacement and other cosmetic procedures that most gynecologists don’t do. He also takes most insurance options. 5 stars!!! 👏👏👏👏👏"- A.M. / Google / Mar 25, 2021
"I had a great experience with Dr. Huertas and his staff. He preformed 360 lipo on me and I’m now 1 day post op. I had a massage done with an independent massage therapist and they raved about my first day results! I will update this if anything changes. I would recommend this doctor!"- C.O. / Google / Jan 28, 2021

Do I Qualify for BOTOX?
BOTOX can be ideal for people who want to soften the appearance of lines on their upper face without undergoing surgery. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive treatment for those who do not yet show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It may be a great nonsurgical answer for those frustrated by forehead lines or noticeable furrows between their brows. It can also be a solution for lines that form around the eyes.
Our BOTOX Injection Technique
BOTOX treatments are completed in a quick appointment at CosmeticGyn Center. If it's your first time visiting our office in Dallas, TX for BOTOX, we often perform the injection immediately following your consultation with Dr. Huertas. He'll ask you to make a number of facial expressions using your upper face (like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc.) to allow us to mark where to place the injections. Dr. Huertas most commonly places BOTOX between the eyebrows, in Crow's feet, and on the forehead.
We'll cleanse your skin and inject BOTOX using a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to decrease swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the injections more comfortable, but it usually isn't necessary. BOTOX treatments typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can return to your usual routine almost immediately.
What to Expect
After the injections, you may return to your typical routine, but you should avoid strenuous activities like exercise for a minimum of one day. You should sleep with your head elevated for the first night and avoid touching your face. The injected areas of your face may be slightly swollen, bruised, or red for about 2 – 3 days, but you should not experience any serious or long-lasting side effects. In the majority of cases, it often takes around one week before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen.
BOTOX Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BOTOX cost?
The cost of BOTOX injections will be based on how much BOTOX you'll need to achieve your aesthetic goals. During your consultation, Dr. Huertas will develop your custom treatment plan by the unit, and then he can estimate the cost of your treatment. BOTOX can produce wonderful results when injected by Dr. Huertas, but it can also be unsafe if performed by someone who doesn't have the experience. This is why it's better to avoid any place offering discounted or off-brand injections for anti-aging.
How long will my results last?
Improvements from BOTOX may be visible for as long as 4 – 6 months. Most patients schedule an appointment every quarter to maintain their results; however, you may come back earlier if needed. If you're getting BOTOX as a preventive measure before wrinkles are visible, then you may be able to schedule treatments further apart.
Is BOTOX safe?
When administered correctly, BOTOX should not cause any complications. It's considered safe and has earned approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, it's still very important to choose someone like Dr. Huertas who has experience injecting BOTOX. In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used to treat medical problems, including facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
