Dallas Botox® Specialists — Genecov Plastic Surgery Group
Administering Botox® to Patients in Dallas, Southlake and Plano, TX
What is Botox®?
Botox®, or botulinum toxin type A, is an injectable treatment formulated to reduce the appearance of certain facial wrinkles by relaxing the muscles causing them. By causing controlled weakening in these muscles, the skin over the muscles smoothes out and the appearance of wrinkles and lines is diminished. Many Dallas, Southlake and Plano patients find that Botox® can have dramatic results on frown lines, forehead wrinkles and other deep facial creases.
At Genecov Plastic Surgery Group, our highly trained practitioners have administered countless Botox® injections in TX. If you’re interested in Botox® and live in Dallas, Southlake, Plano or the surrounding areas, you’ve come to the right place.

How is Botox® Performed?
Botox® can be injected in the doctor’s office, and does not require any kind of anesthesia. You will simply relax in the chair as the doctor injects your skin with a specially formulated Botox® solution.
The process takes just a few minutes. A very fine needle is used to inject a diluted solution of botulinum toxin type A into targeted facial muscles. After this injection, the Botox® toxin causes these muscles to relax by blocking signals sent from nerves to these muscles, which would ordinarily cause them to contract, forcing the skin covering them to fold into those familiar lines and creases. After Botox®, the muscles can no longer contract, relaxing these wrinkles. While this may sound too good to be true, our Dallas Botox® before and after photos are proof that this procedure works wonders on aging skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?
Many patients in Dallas, Texas choose Botox® treatments when they are trying to reduce the signs of aging, especially facial wrinkles. This procedure is often recommended as an alternative to more invasive procedures such as facelifts and brow lifts.
Botox® can be used to smooth many lines and wrinkles, including:
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Crow’s feet (around the eyes)
- Glabellar folds (wrinkles between the eyebrows)
We inform all of our patients in Dallas, Richardson and Carrollton that Botox® injections work well on wrinkles caused by movement of facial muscles, but will not affect those caused by gravity or exposure to the sun. In addition to cosmetic uses, Botox® can also treat uncontrolled blinking, lazy eye and several other health conditions.

What Kind of Post-Operative Botox® Care Can I Expect?
After Botox®, patients can return to their daily activities immediately, which has earned this treatment the reputation of being a “lunchtime procedure.” No incisions, sutures, or bandages are involved with Botox® injections. Most patients don’t take more than an hour or two away from work or school. Side effects, including minor bruising and headaches, could last up to two days after the injection. It is important to avoid rubbing the treated area for 12 hours or laying down for four hours, as these activities can cause the Botox® solution to migrate to other areas of the body, causing slight numbness.
What are the Typical Results of Botox®?
The initial results are typically seen 3 days after the injection and full results are visible 1 week after the injection. Botox® patients find that the results of the procedure usually remain visible for 3-4 months. Gradually, the treated muscles regain their ability to contract, and the wrinkles will begin to reappear. At this time, you may wish to return for a follow-up injection of Botox®. To decide if this procedure is for you, take a look at some Botox® before and after photos.
