BOTOX ® Cosmetic
Conveniently located to serve Fort Worth
BOTOX ® Cosmetic in Fort Worth is a nonsurgical treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Very low doses of BOTOX ® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections into the muscles. This relaxes the muscle and decreases the appearance of wrinkles in the injected areas. If you don’t continue with your BOTOX ® treatments your frown lines will return. This type of procedure can be done at our Fort Worth office location which is conveniently located to Southlake, Keller, Argyle and Mansfield.
What Is BOTOX ® Cosmetic?
BOTOX ® is used to reduce the appearance of forehead furrows, crow’s feet, lip lines, frown lines, and bunny lines. It can help diminish neck bands, change the appearance of a square jawline, raise the corners of the mouth, improve a gummy smile, and smooth the appearance of chin dimpling.
When BOTOX ® Cosmetic is injected, it stops the nerve signals from reaching certain muscles, preventing the muscles from contracting. As the muscles relax, the wrinkles are smoothed out.
Good Candidates for BOTOX ® Cosmetic
The best candidates for BOTOX ® are people who want to get rid of their fine facial wrinkles to achieve a more youthful and relaxed appearance. In addition, ideal candidates are at least 18 years of age, in good health, and not expecting or nursing. Patients should have realistic expectations regarding the results of BOTOX ®.
People who are not good candidates for BOTOX ® are those who are in poor health, have very thick skin, or have problems with muscle weaknesses in potential target injection sites. The treatment is not recommended for people who have exhibited allergic reactions at the injection areas.

What is the cost?
A detailed quote of the cost of BOTOX ® Cosmetic will be given at the time of your consultation. The final price may vary based on the number of wrinkles and fine lines and how aggressively you want them treated.
How long will it take?
The procedure takes 5-15 minutes and is done in our Fort Worth office. BOTOX ® injections are often done after application of a numbing cream or local anesthesia. The injection sites are marked as a guide, and BOTOX ® is injected into these points.
What is the recovery?
Minimal redness and/or swelling at the injection site usually resolves within hours after BOTOX ® treatments. At times you may get a small bruise at the injection site which may take a little longer to resolve. You may return to work the same day. We ask that you don’t exercise for 24 hours. The result is apparent in about a week, and lasts for 3-4 months.
What medications should I take or avoid taking with this procedure?
You should not take any blood thinners or anti-inflammatory medications for a week before your BOTOX ® treatment, and you should hold all over the counter supplements a week before your procedure. This will help reduce the risk of bruising. If blood thinners are prescribed for you by your cardiologist or primary care physician, you should get clearance from them to hold these medications before they are discontinued. Dr. Lovelace and the staff at their Fort Worth office will go through your list of medications, and let you know what exactly you need to do with those medications before your procedure. Make sure that you bring all of your medications with you to your consultation.
What are the risks?
The risks of BOTOX ® include bleeding, infection, scarring, bruising, antibodies, ptosis, blindness, diplopia, ectropion, migration to other muscles, asymmetry, poor cosmesis, need for further intervention, the fact that it is not permanent, unknown risks of long term use, cardiac/pulmonary/stroke events, death, etc.
