What are BOTOX INjections?
Dr. Rolando Morales has helped hundreds of men and women achieve a more youthful look through quick, simple BOTOX cosmetic treatments. His treatments help individuals in the greater Houston, TX area significantly diminish signs of aging on the face, such as furrows, crow’s feet and laugh lines. BOTOX has proven to be the best nonsurgical form of facial rejuvenation, and is capable of producing phenomenal improvements in facial appearance. BOTOX can also be combined with other treatments to give patients an overall facial rejuvenation that leaves them looking and feeling younger than ever before.
BOTOX has become a common nonsurgical, anti-wrinkle treatment. During a treatment, the wrinkle relaxer is injected into facial muscles around the eyes, across the forehead, around the mouth, and along the neck. This treatment paralyzes these muscles allowing the skin to lay flat for an extended period of time, which effectively reduces lines and wrinkles. It can diminish crow’s feet, laugh and frown lines, and other dynamic wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions. With continued use, the injectable can continue to improve and smoothen fine lines and wrinkles.
What to Expect
The BOTOX treatment will begin with a gentle cleansing of the skin followed by the application of a topical anesthetic to optimize patient comfort during the procedure. Most patients feel a minor sting from the injection, which feels like an insect bite. The treatment will usually take 10 minutes to complete. Patient can return to normal activities immediately following treatment. The results will be visible within 5 to 7 days of treatment, and results can last up to 3 months. If regular treatments are continued, results may tend to last longer between treatments.
The cost of BOTOX treatments will vary, depending on how many syringes are used. Most practices charge $350 for one full syringe of BOTOX. A treatment session typically takes 1-3 syringes. Therefore, the cost can range between $350-$700 per session.

How Long Do Results Last?
With BOTOX, the effects on the targeted muscles can last up to 3 months, at which time another treatment is required. After several treatments, however, results can last even longer.
Is it Safe?
BOTOX has been used successfully for over 20 years in ophthalmology, and for over 10 years in plastic surgery and dermatology. Side effects are generally rare.
Only your ability to frown is diminished or eliminated. Muscles responsible for all other facial expressions are not affected.
Currently, BOTOX is the best treatment specifically for wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes. However, injectable fillers and chemical peels are also used by Dr. Morales to improve facial wrinkles in all areas.
