Dr. Deirdre McMullen and Dr. Tiyashi Choudhury of Rocky Creek Family Medicine can administer Botox injections for patients looking to achieve a younger appearance. Botox has become more readily available, but is it right for you? Read about Botox injections and see if we can help you achieve a softer, younger appearance.

Botox can soften wrinkles and help you achieve a more youthful look. Your doctor in Missouri City, TX, provides Botox to help with the following issues and more:

  • Crow's feet
  • Wrinkles around the mouth
  • Forehead lines

Botox injections are a way to achieve a softer appearance without plastic surgery. Botox is made from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum in a refined, safe form. Botox injections precisely target the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. It stops the contractions in your muscles, forcing them to relax. When the muscles are relaxed, the skin over them appears smoother.

Getting a Botox injection is relatively painless. The needle used is very small and you feel a small pinch or prick with the injection. There are very few side effects, mainly a brief swelling or redness at the injection site. The injection begins to work after a couple of days, but it may be up to a week before you see the complete effects of the injection.

There is drastic plastic surgery available that is meant to completely change your appearance. Botox injections gently soften wrinkles and fine lines to achieve a softer, younger look that's still you.

There is maintenance recommended with Botox injections. The average injection lasts about three months, and we would recommend that you continue to schedule injections every three to six months.
