To help in aging gracefully and to prevent facial wrinkles and lines from forming on the top portion of the face, Legacy Dermatology & Restoration Center in Frisco, TX is proud to offer BOTOX to local individuals. This injectable procedure provides outstanding results and is very common among both men and women. BOTOX can make a significant enhancement to dynamic lines, which are made from expressive movement with the muscles contracting on the forehead and around the eyes. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic folds can still exist. BOTOX is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscle. To soften these dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to smooth the skin. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed by dermatologist Jennifer Dharamsi, M.D. or one of our seasoned practitioners between the eyebrows, on the Crow's feet, and across the forehead.
"I've been going here for about 6 months now and have seen both Dr. Dharamsi and Patrice. Both are incredibly knowledgeable and kind, and any skin issue you walk in with will be solved or have an excellent treatment plan when you leave whether or not it's the issue that brought you in the first place. I love how thorough they are and how on top of any situation you may have they are from their follow ups to their quickness at getting back to you with any phoned in questions. My husband and daughter both see either Dr. Dharamsi or Patrice as well and feel the same way. Daughter's eczema is under control and she has products that actually work on teen skin without aggravating it further. On the product note, they do sell many in a variety of price ranges and don't push them on you. My husband, daughter, and myself all now have a customized skincare routine. Andrea is amazing too for any cosmetic skin concerns. I've done a facial, a peel, 2 different lasers, and even ventured into Botox once with her and it was a great experience every time. She takes a "less is more" approach with Botox so I never felt stiff or expressionless. When it came to the lasers it was for a specific concern in one area that I was told might take more than one treatment and they adjusted the price for the second treatment since it was isolated to one spot. Highly recommend Legacy Dermatology for any medical or cosmetic skin concerns."- S.W. / Yelp / Mar 06, 2018
"I have been seeing Dr. Dharamsi for the last several years and I would never see another dermatologist. She is meticulous and professional. You can tell she truly cares about her patients as I never feel rushed or like there is anyone else in the office. Dr. Dharamsi is a one stop shop for any of my derm needs from annual skin checks to cosmetic procedures like botox and filler. She does an excellent job and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends or family."- N.S. / Google / Feb 26, 2018
"Dr. Dharamsi is wonderful dermatologist. I'm so happy for her to have her own practice now, which happens to be in a beautiful new office space. She removed a mole for me that was on my collarbone. I was very hesitant to remove it, as if it had scarred, it would be very noticable. I'm happy to say that I have zero scarring & am so happy to have peace of mind that it was nothing. I can't wait to see Dr. Dharamsi for my future derm needs + any Botox or fillers I might need."- B.W. / Google / Feb 26, 2018
"The team at Legacy Dermatology are amazing!! I am 56 and over the past 4 months I've received several treatments and Botox. The Botox experience was the best I've ever had. They take a 'natural' approach, therefore I look very natural and most importantly I don't have outrageous eyebrows. I am grateful to have Legacy Dermatology gently navigating me through the process of aging!!!!!"- K.S. / Google / Aug 13, 2019
BOTOX is great for individuals who wish to soften the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. BOTOX can also be used as a preventive treatment even if you do not show signs of aging — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It's a terrific nonsurgical treatment if you are frustrated by forehead lines or parallel lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be more suitable.
BOTOX treatments are performed as an outpatient procedure conveniently at Legacy Dermatology & Restoration Center. If it is your first time to visit us in Frisco, TX for BOTOX, we typically perform the injection on the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Dharamsi. You will be asked to make several facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to visualize where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be applied with a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help minimize discomfort and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is unnecessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, then you can resume to your normal routine as soon as you feel able.
What to Expect
After the procedure, you may get back to your regular routine, but strenuous activity should be skipped for at least one day. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may appear swollen, bruised, or red for 2 – 3 days, but you will not develop any lasting or serious side effects. In many cases, it typically takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results usually last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule your next appointment at Legacy Dermatology & Restoration Center to extend your results.Considerations After Care
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does BOTOX cost?
The cost of BOTOX will depend on how much product is used. This will vary based on your needs and goals. During your consultation, Dr. Dharamsi will develop your personal treatment plan before she can estimate your costs. BOTOX can produce beautiful results when performed by a skilled dermatologist, like Dr. Dharamsi, but it can be unsafe if done by someone without training, which is why it's better to avoid places offering cheap or knock-off injections. To save money, ask about the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Program so you can get points for BOTOX and other Allergan products, like Juvéderm.
How long will my results last?
Your BOTOX results can last up to four months. Most patients make an appointment every season to maintain their results, but you may come back sooner. If you are getting BOTOX while you are younger as a preventive treatment, you may be able to schedule treatments further apart. After listening to your goals and developing your treatment plan, Dr. Dharamsi will be able to estimate when you should schedule your next appointment.
What's the difference between wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX) and wrinkle fillers (like Juvéderm) are both treatments that reduce wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX relaxes overused facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles, like frown lines (between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer corners of the eyes), forehead wrinkles, and smile lines. Injectable fillers add volume under the skin to correct hollow areas and decrease static wrinkles. After hearing your goals, Dr. Dharamsi may recommend BOTOX, fillers, or a combination of both for a "liquid facelift."
Is BOTOX safe?
When used properly, BOTOX rarely causes any complications. With that said, it is important to select someone who has training in handling this medication, like Dr. Dharamsi. Overusing BOTOX can create an undesirable outcome. A skilled practitioner will use just enough of the medication to effectively freeze the muscles that cause wrinkles while leaving nearby muscles unaffected. One of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market today, it's safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In addition to cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used to treat medical problems, like facial spasms, excessive sweating, uncontrollable blinking, and migraines.
