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.

"10/2023 update - I saw Patrice, PA, in July for my annual skin check. I showed up for the appointment and to my chagrin had accidentally canceled it vs confirming. They fit me in and Patrice took a biopsy that ended up being malignant melanoma that required referral to an Oncologist. I travel a lot and if they wouldn't have fit me in, I wouldn't have rescheduled for a long time. That aggressive cancer would have just been metastasizing in my body.... They likely saved my life, not being dramatic at all!! I have since gone through the cancer excision and lymph node testing and am thankful to be cancer free. Can't recommend these professionals enough! 10/2021 update - saw Dr. Dharamsi today because I needed more specialist attention for removal of facial mole(s). Always a great experience! Update to previous review - I visited during the peak of COVID in NTX and felt very safe with the protocol in place. Saw Patrice and Dr. Farid and had a great experience, yet again. Will be back! I've been a patient at Legacy Dermatology, really since they first opened. I see Patrice for my annual skin wellness check, and Dr. Farid for cosmetic. The offices are beautifully decorated and clean, the staff professional and kind. I've literally never interacted with someone who isn't nice. They also offer high quality skin care products, including great sunscreen. Dr. Farid does a great job with cosmetic injections - he's gentle and has a knack to not cause bruising. His approach achieves very natural results that don't make you look like you've had "work done". They have recently invested in expanding their business and now have Legacy Restoration, which is dedicated to cosmetic. Same office park, same swanky decor & great care. I highly recommend choosing Legacy for your skin and beauty needs."- L.D. / Google / Oct 12, 2023
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.
Just Express Yourself
Stop worrying! You can frown, laugh, smile, and make any expression you want without creating lines, thanks to BOTOX wrinkle relaxer treatments. To prevent and smooth lines across the face, we invite you to schedule an appointment with dermatologist Dr. Dharamsi in Frisco, TX to hear more about this popular nonsurgical injectable.
