Botox is only provided and injected by Dr. Melanie Carreon since 2004, over 14 years of experience! To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, near New Braunfels, San Marcos, San Antonio and Austin TX is proud to offer BOTOX to local men and women. This dermal treatment is extremely popular and provides gorgeous results. BOTOX can make a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the facial muscles to diminish wrinkles and create an overall softer appearance. It is most commonly placed by medical director Dr. Melanie Carreon between the brows, on the Crow’s feet, and along the forehead. Call our front desk today to schedule a private consultation and take advantage of our $9.75/unit on Thursdays.
BOTOX is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically. It is also used as a preventive treatment, even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It’s also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended.
BOTOX injections are performed as an outpatient procedure directly at LCS Medical Spa. If it is your first time to visit us in Seguin, near New Braunfels, San Marcos, San Antonio and Austin TX for BOTOX since 2004, we commonly perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Carreon. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to determine where the injections should be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 5 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities with no required recovery period.
WHAT TO EXPECT
After the injection, you can resume your usual activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright 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 be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for a few days, but you will not experience any long lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it often takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to us about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at LCS Medical Spa to maintain your results.
