“This was my entry into medical aesthetics! I learned to use neurotoxins to help my neurological patients. Botox® has been incredibly effective to treat chronic migraines and I have been fortunate to help patients with severe facial and eyelid spasms. The progression to cosmetic Botox was natural and I have found that helping people look better helps them feel better too! The key to neurotoxins is proper dosing and placement to maintain natural movement and appearance. Xeomin® is a variation of the botulinum toxin molecule and offers another alternative to patients for cosmetic treatment.”

original_inline_lasik_candidates2A non-surgical treatment that requires little to no recovery time, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become one of the most commonly chosen solutions for cosmetic enhancement in America. At the Whitsett Vision Group, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic to our Houston and Katy patients to give them a chance to achieve the youthful look they’ve always wanted. After a thorough consultation with Dr. Cybele Woon, you will have a well-established and individualized care plan that will optimize your results, helping you achieve your aesthetic goals. If you are interested in one of our cosmetic treatments, you should contact our office to schedule a consultation.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic can temporarily relax the muscles that cause inconvenient and unwanted wrinkles and folds in your facial skin. Approved by the FDA as a provisional treatment for moderate to severe lines between the eyebrows, BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used to treat other facial lines, such as crow’s feet and furrowed forehead wrinkles. Ideal for individuals 18 to 65 years of age, BOTOX® injections provide appreciable, long-lasting wrinkle reduction.

Although BOTOX® Cosmetic won’t reverse or eliminate wrinkles caused by sun damage, and isn’t suggested for the lines around your mouth, each of our patients’ needs and requests are different and we will do what we can to tailor your treatment. Rest assured, we will take the time needed and provide suitable attention and care to help you reach your goals. Dr. Woon will discuss with you in detail the best options for treatment and help you decide what you would like to see as an end result.

Understanding the Procedure

Once you and Dr. Woon have established your candidacy for BOTOX® Cosmetic and have discussed the risks and benefits of undergoing the treatment, the procedure can begin. Very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic will be administered through tiny injections, directly into the underlying muscles that cause frown lines between your eyebrows. You may opt to have a cold pack or anesthetic cream applied prior to the injection to minimize discomfort, but generally, anesthetic is unnecessary.

Dr. Woon is a medical doctor, whose special training in BOTOX® Cosmetic injections gives her the upper hand when placing your injections, optimizing their location, and your overall results. Slight bruising, tenderness, swelling, and temporary eyelid droop are to be expected after the treatment is complete, but should quickly diminish.

The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic have proven incredibly beneficial to our Houston and Katy patients; the injections can successfully reduce frown lines, highlighting patients’ best features and reshaping those that have lost volume due to age. After a quick fifteen minute visit, and a near immediate recovery, BOTOX® Cosmetic can leave you feeling better about yourself than you have in years.

Though rare, side effects and complications can occur. But rest assured that you are in good hands with Dr. Woon, who will take great care to ensure your safety.
