When your facial muscles tighten, they can cause fine lines and wrinkles over time. Without proper treatment, they can look extreme, giving you a more aged appearance. Image Renu Dermatology in Dallas, TX, offers superior solutions for fine lines and wrinkles through our advanced BOTOX Cosmetic treatments. BOTOX injections temporarily paralyze the muscles beneath the skin where wrinkles are most pronounced, smoothing them and rejuvenating your skin’s healthy look. Our trained certified medical staff members have the right hands-on experience with BOTOX Cosmetic, and have helped thousands of patients in the Greater Dallas area look and feel younger. This non-surgical treatment is among the most widely performed cosmetic procedures today, providing noticeable results that last for several months between visits.
What is BOTOX and How Does It Work?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a neuromodulator that works by directly relaxing the small muscles in your face. It eases tension and smooths away wrinkles caused by your facial muscles bunching up the skin. During treatment, a small amount is injected directly into the underlying muscle, which causes it to relax and gradually smooth out the appearance of the overlying skin. This procedure eliminates frown lines, moderate to severe brow lines, laugh lines, crow’s feet around the eyes (lateral canthal lines), and more.
After receiving your first BOTOX Cosmetic treatment, you can expect to see results within a week. Depending on which area you are focusing on, this could include wrinkles noticeably smoothing or completely disappearing.Results typically last anywhere from three to six months, with long-term treatment providing the greatest benefit depending on your skin type and condition.
What Areas Are Good For BOTOX?
Derived from purified Botulinum toxin, BOTOX floods the muscular nerve signals, blocking and weakening them so they can no longer contract. So, while patients may want to inject it everywhere to make their skin look young all over, BOTOX Cosmetic is primarily effective for treating dynamic wrinkles — like the type you get when you move your face. You might notice these as crow’s feet around your eyes or lines on your forehead that comes from furrowing your brow. It can also target static wrinkles that appear as your skin gets older and loses some tissue that gives it structure.
Overall, BOTOX treatments are most successful when applied to:
- The Forehead
- Around The Eyes, Including Crow’s Feet
- Frown Lines
- The Chin and Jawline
- The Nose Area and Bunny Lines
- And more
Areas like the underarms and back can benefit from BOTOX as well, as it reduces excessive sweating. No matter where is it used, BOTOX is safe and almost instantaneous. It is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and causes minimal pain, side effects, and downtime for recovery. We always recommend you get an in-depth consultation with a dermatologist concerning BOTOX before receiving any treatments. Contact us for your consultation today.
How Long Does BOTOX Treatment Last?
BOTOX treatment lasts two to four months, on average. New patients will notice that it may last for a shorter time, but BOTOX’s longevity gets better with repetition. If done regularly, BOTOX can last anywhere from four to six months, giving you the youthful appearance you want without multiple trips to our office.

How Much Does BOTOX Cost?
BOTOX treatment costs will depend on the amount of medication that is used. Doses are generally measured in syringes, with the average price of one syringe being $350. One treatment session can utilize one to three syringes for best effect, so you can expect to pay anywhere from $350-$800 per treatment. Image Renu Dermatology will always work with you to expertly assess your needs and provide the best guidance so you can make the right choice.
Should I Get BOTOX Injections?
If you are concerned about your skin’s aging appearance, BOTOX can make all the difference. BOTOX has become one of the most sought-after anti-aging treatments in the world since its inception in the early 2000s. Not only can BOTOX reduce the signs of existing lines and wrinkles, but it also has other benefits, which can help you look and feel younger. At Image Renu Dermatology, we help you discover those benefits with a customized skin revitalization plan that is tailored to you. Working with us, you will enjoy all the advantages BOTOX treatments have to offer, including:
- Control: With BOTOX, you choose which areas to target and treat based on your level of concern. BOTOX is ideal for horizontal wrinkles across the forehead (rhytides), upper lip lines, downturned mouth lines, and platysmal neckbands. We will always work with your unique goals and transform these problem areas with rejuvenating skin treatments that work.
- Immediate Results: BOTOX does not require you to wait to see actual results. In as little as 15 minutes, you can see and feel a physical difference in your skin’s tightness and definition. Other treatments require days, even weeks, to take effect. BOTOX is fast, easy, and effective.
- Wrinkle Prevention: BOTOX has a more dynamic effect with every treatment. The more often you receive BOTOX, the fewer wrinkles you will see over time. The BOTOX injection doses and side effects also become less severe over time, making the process easier on you.
- Lasting Results: BOTOX indeed gives you long-lasting wrinkle reduction. However, when used as part of a more extensive skin rejuvenation regimen, the results can be flawless. You can look younger and more vibrant well into your golden years and maintain a confidence you will always enjoy.
