Botox Fort Worth
Since skin is the most visible part of our body, it is important to maintain the health and smoothness. Appearance of wrinkles and facial lines is a natural part of the aging process but may be frustrating. Some patient may be terrified of the invasive procedures. However, luckily there are non-surgical treatments. Botox in Fort Worth are used not only for therapeutic purposes, but for cosmetic ones too. Unlike other fillers, which are superficially injected just beneath the skin, Botox is injected directly into the muscle. At Skinique Med Spa in Fort Worth, TX, we offer Botox treatments with minimal to no downtime.
Because Botox is made of a neurotoxin, it blocks signals between the muscle and the brain, ultimately preventing muscle contraction in a localized area. When the muscle relaxes, wrinkles smooth out and soften. Performed correctly, these injections only affect targeted muscles while still allowing for facial expression. Botox can be used for any type of wrinkle that has not been caused by sun damage or stretching of the skin due to gravity. Results are usually best on expression lines, such as those around the eyes and forehead. At our Skinique Med Spa in Fort Worth, we make sure that our patients receive optimum results.
What is Botox?
Botox is an FDA-approved product that is safe and effective, which is offered at our Fort Worth med spa. This noninvasive treatment has minimal to no downtime. Botox, through its neurotoxin, works on the muscles of the skin to temporarily diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Common areas treated with Botox include:
- Crow’s feet
This is not a complete list of the target areas. Our providers can guide you to make the correct choice of treatment plans with the appropriate treatment sites.
What are the differences between Botox and Dermal Fillers?
At Skinique Med Spa, we offer both types of injections, Botox and Dermal Fillers. Both products are used to diminish wrinkles and fine lines. However, they differ in their formulas. Additionally, there are different types of Dermal Fillers, such as Juvéderm, Voluma, and Radiesse, all offered at our Fort Worth med spa. While Dermal Fillers fill the facial lines, Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the skin muscles. During your consultation, our aesthetic experts will help you decide on the best option based on your needs and desires.
What is the procedure like with Botox treatment?
Prior to your treatment, during your consultation, we will assess your needs and desires and develop a treatment plan that works best for you. You can also discuss your potential concerns with our professionals at our Fort Worth med spa.
On the day of your treatment, you will receive the injections which might take around 30 minutes depending on the patient and treating sites. In fact, you can schedule a Botox injection for your lunch hour or on your way home from work. Injections use a very fine needle, which is inserted into the facial muscles. There is very little discomfort during the injection, and anesthesia is not necessary.
The side effects to Botox treatment are minimal. They are common injection side effects that are generally resolved within a few hours to days following your treatment. Some common side effects include: redness, swelling at the site of injection, tenderness or bruising. Since Botox is a safe and effective treatment, you may resume most of your normal activities after the treatment.
What are the results of Botox treatment?
Results from Botox are immediate. Some patients notice the results once the side effects subside. Depending on the treatment sites and the patient, the results of the treatment may last anywhere from 3 to 6 months. It is important that you maintain the results through retreatment plans at our Fort Worth med spa.

Are there any special post-care instructions for Botox?
