BOTOX® in Plano, TX

Procedures ( View All )


Looking for a wrinkle treatment? Plastic surgeon Dr. Kristen Ann Aliano Messina, and facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho offer BOTOX. Well-known and extremely popular, the injectable wrinkle relaxer actually targets the source of lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. By using a form of purified botulinum toxin Type A, the contractions of the facial muscles that cause crow’s feet and frown lines can be temporarily halted for a younger-looking, more rejuvenated appearance. Most patients can expect results to last around 3 – 4 months, and Dr. Ho or Dr. Aliano Messina can provide subsequent injections to extend the effects.

Ideal Candidates

During the initial consultation, the doctor will ask about your concerns and your goals to help you decide if BOTOX is the best treatment for you. Ideal candidates will have:

  • Deep lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions
  • Facial asymmetry, particularly around the eyebrows
  • Wrinkles that make you look sad, tired, or mad
  • Are not ready or do not want a facelift

What to Expect

A BOTOX treatment is usually performed on the same day as your consultation in about 15 – 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. The plastic surgeon will clean the treatment sites before the BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles with a thin needle. Most patients feel mild to no discomfort during the procedure, but local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if the patient prefers. Patients will be able to leave immediately after their BOTOX treatment, but they should avoid lying down, touching the injection sites, and exercise for at least 24 hours. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first 1 – 2 days.

Anticipated Results

Patients will see the full results of BOTOX in 3 – 4 days as the dynamic wrinkles begin to soften and smooth. BOTOX treatments usually last 3 – 6 months so patients are encouraged to schedule their next appointment after their treatment to prevent the results from fading. The  surgeon may also suggest a follow-up appointment several weeks after the initial treatment to check the patient’s progress and add more BOTOX if needed.
