You laugh. You cry. Your emotions are the center of who you are, and the lines on your face tell your story. You have learned lessons and are still discovering new facets of life.
In your life’s journey, sometimes it’s necessary to take a sidestep off the main path to reassess the direction you are headed. When the lines on your face are not headed in the direction of how you feel or look overall, it’s time for a change. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Schusterman offers patients a Botox treatment to treat wrinkles, frown lines, and other fine lines.
What is Botox?
Botox® is an injectable serum made up of a purified protein and natural bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is used to block the chemical signals in the nerves to stop the muscles from contracting. One of the most popular uses of Botox is to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. At Schusterman Plastic Surgery in Houston Botox treatments are used to treat a variety of conditions, including:
- Lazy eye
- Excessive sweating
- Overactive bladder
- Chronic migraines

Botox treatments are done on an outpatient basis, so you will be able to return home that same day. It’s always recommended to have someone drive you home, but with Botox injections, that is not always the case.
In preparation for your treatment, Dr. Schusterman may numb the areas. Most patients have very little discomfort. Next, a thin needle will inject small amounts of Botox into your skin or muscles. The number of injections you need will have been discussed in your consultation with Dr. Schusterman.

It is recommended to avoid rubbing or massage the treated area for 24 hours to prevent the Botox from spreading to other places on your body. Other than some minor redness at the injection sites, you are able to return to your daily activities immediately after your procedure.
Results from your Botox injections will be fully visible after 3 days. Your results will last at least three months but could be longer; it depends on how your muscles react to the injection. You will want to set up a consistent maintenance schedule for follow-up injections as needed.
The cost of Botox will vary and can be determined with a consultation. Please schedule your Botox consultation for specific pricing. Whether you are opting for Botox treatments, Juvederm treatments, Restylane treatments, or the VI Peel, you may be surprised to learn that cosmetic treatments and procedures are more affordable than ever before.
Complications are rare, but some risks include pain or swelling at the injection site, headaches, asymmetry of the eyebrows or mouth area, or crooked smile.
Botox treatments are considered elective treatments and are not covered under medical insurance. You can check with your insurance provider to determine if your Botox treatments are medically necessary, depending on your condition.
Dr. Schusterman does offer reasonable payment and financing options. Cash, checks, and most major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, are accepted.
