Model with BOTOX


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, the fine lines and wrinkles in your skin fade quickly. You may even notice an improvement within four days after treatment.

"The best thing for the patients to understand about me would be that I truly care about what their outcome is, and allowing them to go through a process of achieving the outcome is really a process we take together. It's a walk we take together in order to achieve the end result." Dr. Barone

San Antonio, TX, patients trust in Dr. Barone to smooth drooping eyelids and relax fine lines with safe botulinum toxin application.

Though not all patients will be candidates for botulinum toxin injections, Dr. Barone can help you explore your options at our San Antonio office. She will kindly and honestly let you know which treatments are possible as you discuss your goals.


Before we administer your injections, we'll ensure the area is clean and sterile. Though botulinum toxin injections aren't painful, we may be able to apply ice or a topical anesthetic to make the process even easier for you.


Our plastic surgeon or an esthetician will gently administer your BOTOX using an ultrafine needle. Dr. Barone uses 25 units of botulinum toxin per injection session for best results.


Recovery is minimal with botulinum toxin injections. Though you may notice minor side effects like swelling or bruising for a few days after your treatment, you should be able to go back to work and resume your everyday activities immediately following your BOTOX injections.

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.

Why Choose BOTOX Over Other Botulinum Toxin Products?

We only offer BOTOX Cosmetic at our San Antonio office. We believe in the power of BOTOX, which is why it's the only botulinum toxin we use. There are many benefits of choosing BOTOX over other neurotoxins, including:

Longest FDA Approval

BOTOX isn't the only botulinum toxin injectable on the market, but it's likely the most well-known. This is in part because of its long history. BOTOX was FDA-approved for cosmetic use in 2002, before other products, such as XEOMIN and Dysport.

Best-Selling Neurotoxin

BOTOX is manufactured and sold in 98 different countries, making it an immensely popular treatment. In the United States alone, around 100 million vials of BOTOX have been sold to customers since 2002.

Various Treatment Areas

While it's often considered safe to mix botulinum toxin treatments, we stick with BOTOX due to its versatility. BOTOX is the only neurotoxin of its kind to be FDA-approved for the treatment of forehead lines, frown lines, and crow's feet.

Frequently Asked Questions About BOTOX

How can I help ensure best results?

Patients can make the most of their BOTOX treatment by not touching their treatment site for four hours or using facials for 24 hours after their appointment. We also recommend using sunscreen daily and abiding by a skincare routine.

When does BOTOX usually show results?

BOTOX works quickly, taking 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 to preserve your results, depending on how long the treatment works for you.

How many units of BOTOX are used?

Dr. Barone uses 25 units of BOTOX for each session. These units can be spread across areas of concern on your face. Smaller areas, such as around the lips and eyes, will require fewer units, while larger areas, such as the forehead, will benefit from a higher unit count. Using 25 units ensures that Dr. Barone can address all areas of your skin that you want to target.

Does BOTOX hurt?

A topical anesthetic will typically be applied at the injection site for BOTOX patients. This numbs the surface of your skin, making the process of injecting the BOTOX virtually painless. Slight redness or bruising may occur after the procedure, but will disappear soon after your treatment.
