All About Botox® !

To Botox...or Not to Botox?

Getting Botox® is one of the most beneficial procedures you can have done for wrinkle correction AND prevention.  The age of our patients receiving Botox® injections ranges from 20 to about 65; and many of our patients have started receiving Botox® injections in their 20’s as a prevention method.  Dr. Nguyen supports this concept, and agrees that if the facial muscles are not able to contract and form facial lines, they will be far less prominent in the future.  Considering treatments?  Here are a few of our most common questions we get from Botox® Newbie’s:

First of all, what is it? Botox®, or OnabotulinumtoxinA, is a purified protein that works by inhibiting the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.  Acetylcholine inhibition allows the relaxation of those pesky, overactive, wrinkle-causing muscles.  Less movement and muscle relaxation allows the surface of the skin to smooth out. The time it takes for your skin to smooth out depends on the depth of your wrinkles.  If the wrinkles have been there for several years, and are very deep, it may take time for them to smooth out. Newer wrinkles may look smoother within days after being treated. In addition, Botox® prevents the wrinkles from getting deeper, by relaxing the muscles and preventing the skin from getting creased more deeply.

What areas can be treated?  The most common treatment areas of the face include the Glabella (vertical lines between eyebrows), Frontalis (horizontal lines across forehead), and Crow’s Feet around the eyes.

When will I start seeing results and how long will it last?  Patients will start seeing a difference in just a couple of days and should expect full results 1-2 weeks following treatment.  Botox® typically lasts 3 to 4 months, and even longer for some individuals.

Is there anything I need to do after Botox® Treatments?  You will need to avoid laying flat for at least 4 hours following treatments, try not to move your facial muscles to see if the product is working (this may cause the product to break down faster).  Also, skip your work out for about 24 hours, and try not to get hit in the face.

Another very important aspect to take into consideration is how your Botox® is administered.  Unfortunately in Texas, pretty much anyone can inject Botox®.  It is very important to get treatments from a fully trained physician for ideal results.  Be careful in choosing who will inject your Botox®, do your research and ask questions!  We don’t want you to end up looking silly like George!

New Year, New You!

Happy New Year

Happy 2013! The 2012 Holiday season is officially over! Time to take down decorations, write thank-you notes, and tell your family to finally go home… (kidding!). The beginning of a New Year is one of our favorite times of the year at Sugar Land Plastic Surgery. We like to think of it as a chance to start over with a fresh, clean slate. This is a time to focus on you. Be selfish, Christmas is over! The Holiday of “giving” has come to an end so no need to feel guilty. We want to help you feel good about yourself in whatever way we can. A few of the most common New Year’s Resolutions this year include losing weight, eating healthy, taking better care of yourself, increasing self confidence, enjoying life to the fullest, spending more time with family, quit smoking, and becoming better organized. While we can’t help you with the latter few, here are a couple of ways SLPS can assist with making some of your resolutions last!
