As we age, lines and wrinkles develop on our faces from repeated facial movements and the breakdown of collagen in our skin.
These lines can make some patients look older than they are, or angry and stressed when they are not, but these changes can be minimized.
How? At the office of Dr. Constance Barone in San Antonio, TX, we proudly offer an effective injectable for wrinkles: BOTOX Cosmetic.
What Is Botox?
Like Dysport® and XEOMIN®, BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable that uses botulinum toxin to relax your facial muscles and reduce severe wrinkles. This nonsurgical solution can be injected preventatively before wrinkles or frown lines form, or it can be injected to minimize existing fine lines.
Understanding the Subtle Transformation Created by BOTOX
You may already know that BOTOX is a non-permanent injectable designed to relax your muscles and smooth facial lines, but you may still be wondering just how botulinum toxin injections like BOTOX Cosmetic, Dysport, and XEOMIN work.
Botulinum toxin targets facial muscles beneath the skin, blocking nerve impulses. By blocking these impulses, the muscles are prevented from fully contracting, so the targeted areas stay relaxed even as a patient frowns or squints.
Without this movement, your fine lines and wrinkles fade quickly. You may even notice an improvement within four days after treatment.
BOTOX Is Just One of the Procedures Featured at Our Med Spa

When Does BOTOX Usually Show Results?
BOTOX works quickly, with minimal downtime. Injectables containing botulinum toxin usually take full effect within a few days or weeks. These results can last from three to six months. Dr. Barone recommends regular injections at these intervals, depending on how long the treatment works for each patient.
Recovery Is Simple With BOTOX
There is no recovery or downtime with botulinum toxin injections. Patients can continue with their normal routines directly following treatment. In fact, you can even get BOTOX on your lunch break and easily return to work afterward.
BOTOX injections are also fairly painless. Most patients feel only mild discomfort around the injection site that subsides within a few hours. While side effects are uncommon, it can help to know what to look out for after your injections.
Mild side effects can include drooping eyelids, arched brows, or bruising upon the injection site. If you notice more advanced side effects, like less responsive muscles or trouble breathing, seek care immediately.
