Relax Fine Lines and Wrinkles on the Face With BOTOX®

Featured Image

There are a few different ways to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. BOTOX is one of the most popular options and has been around for decades. Not only does it work, but we know more about its long-term effects than other wrinkle reducers.

The team at Beleza Surgery serves patients near The Arboretum, Cedar Park, Round Rock, Liberty Hill and Killeen, TX who are considering BOTOX to achieve a more youthful appearance. Below, we'll look at how BOTOX works to help give you smoother skin.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is an injectable wrinkle reducer made from a purified form of botulism toxin. It's approved for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines, Crow's feet, and forehead lines.

Injectable wrinkle reducers typically come in two forms: muscle relaxers and fillers. BOTOX is a muscle relaxer. It's injected directly into muscles under the skin by the experienced injectors at Beleza Surgery for the most natural-looking outcomes.

How does BOTOX reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

Facial wrinkles are caused by cellular damage and muscle contractions. As we age, our bodies don't produce as much collagen, and exposure to the sun can exacerbate this. Some wrinkles always appear on our faces, while others are only noticeable when we move our faces in specific ways.


Lines and wrinkles that appear while contracting muscles are called dynamic wrinkles. They tend to occur when we're squinting, frowning, and raising or furrowing our brows. The more we repeat these motions, the more dynamic wrinkles tend to set in.


BOTOX works by blocking the nerve signals to specific muscles so you can no longer move them at will. This removes the dynamic wrinkles that would normally appear while making certain expressions.


It's important to note that good BOTOX does not paralyze your whole face. Finding an injector who understands your aesthetic goals and has the credentials and experience to give you the most natural look possible is crucial to a good outcome.


BOTOX typically wears off in about 3 – 4 months (though some patients report results for up to six months), so touch-ups are necessary if you want to maintain smooth skin.

Does BOTOX work if I already have facial wrinkles?

While some people get preventive BOTOX at the first signs of lines on the face, the injections are also effective on patients who are already experiencing moderate to severe creasing around the eyes, nose, mouth, and on the forehead.


It's important to note that BOTOX is not designed to smooth static wrinkles (the ones that appear on your face even when you're not making a facial expression); it only treats dynamic wrinkles. If you're looking to treat both types of lines and wrinkles, ask the team at Beleza Surgery about both BOTOX and fillers.

Get a youthful appearance with BOTOX

BOTOX treatment typically takes just 15 – 20 minutes and lets you return to your daily activities almost immediately after treatment. With a bit of numbing cream, patients feel little more than a pinch as the injections are administered, making BOTOX an easy option to achieve younger-looking skin.
