Chances are that you've heard about the benefits of BOTOX® Cosmetic. With more than 3 million treatments administered last year alone, BOTOX Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. Clearly, people all around you are experiencing the benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic, and perhaps you are wondering if this wrinkle treatment is right for you.
One of the concerns Dr. Bogdan hears from women interested in BOTOX in Dallas and Fort Worth is the fear that the face will appear "frozen" or stiff after treatment. When performed by experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Bogdan, natural and beautiful results can be achieved. No one should be able to tell that you have had BOTOX, but people will notice that you look rested and refreshed.
If you would like to learn more about BOTOX Cosmetic, request a consultation with Dr. Michael Bogdan, a board-certified plastic surgeon.

When facial muscles contract, the skin wrinkles. As we age, these wrinkles become deeper and more prominent. BOTOX Cosmetic reduces or even eliminates wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing the small muscles that contract to produce small lines on the face. BOTOX Cosmetic consists of a purified form of the botulinum toxin, which is safe and effective in very small doses when injected around small muscles.
Treatment will be individualized, but usually involves a small number of injections in the regions to be addressed. BOTOX is a great option for men and women who are beginning to show signs of aging, but are not ready for plastic surgery.Request Your Consultation Before & After Photos
Dr. Bogdan will begin your procedure, which usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes, by cleaning the skin and applying a topical anesthetic. He uses tiny needles, so there is very little discomfort, swelling, or redness. If there is slight swelling or bruising, ice is usually effective in treating this. Most Dallas-Fort Worth BOTOX patients find that they are able to return to work or other normal activities immediately after their injections.
It takes some time for the effects of BOTOX Cosmetic to emerge, but most people see results in 5 to 7 days. Effects typically last 3 to 4 months, though the wrinkle reduction effect may last longer, especially if you maintain regular treatments. We schedule patients on specific days to allow timely use of each reconstituted vial of BOTOX. Consultations may be scheduled alone or in conjunction with another treatment, such as Restylane® injections or face lift. Allergan has provided a nice tool to see how BOTOX could work for you.

Note: Dr. Bogdan enjoys the finesse changes that can occur with the appropriate use of injectable treatments, and will continue providing this service to his established patients (time permitting). Due to the constraints of his busy surgical schedule, he is only able to accept patients interested in injectable therapies during the current week, and cannot accept appointments booked into the future. If you are interested in injectables this week, please call the office at (817) 442-1236 to see if time is available.
