Are you tired of wasting money on “magic” wrinkle creams and anti-aging treatments that promise to fade wrinkles but simply don’t work? If so, then Botox could be the solution you’ve been looking for all along. You can smooth away and virtually erase fine lines and wrinkles with no downtime at all! Here at Westover Hills Dermatology in San Antonio, TX, we provide this treatment to our patients who want beautiful, wrinkle-free skin.
How Long Do Botox Results Actually Last?
Like with any cosmetic treatment, the results can vary from person to person. However, you can expect the results from your Botox treatment to last anywhere from three to six months. In fact, some patients even see results for longer than that. When you notice the results starting to fade, you can schedule additional touchups to maintain your smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
This cosmetic injectable can be used to treat many different areas. If you have other areas with wrinkles you’d like to treat, we’ll discuss your options during the initial consultation. Our professional aesthetic specialists will let you know if those areas can benefit from this treatment. Here are some of the most common areas that we treat here at Westover Hills Dermatology.
Every time you smile, laugh, frown, or cry, it inevitably creates fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead. However, those wrinkles can range from mild surface lines to deeper, more severe wrinkles. Even if you suffer from severe wrinkles on your forehead, this treatment can provide an effective solution to smooth those lines away completely.
Around the Mouth
Whether you call them “frown lines,” “parentheses,” or “marionette lines,” the wrinkles around the corners of the mouth can be extremely noticeable and can also take a significant toll on your self-confidence. However, this treatment can smooth out those wrinkles with ease to provide you with unlined, youthful-looking skin.
Around the Eyes
If you suffer from “crow’s feet,” Botox is perfect for treating and smoothing those fine lines or wrinkles away to reveal smooth, young-looking skin. Wrinkles around the eyes can be very stubborn and rarely respond to conventional anti-aging treatments like creams or serums. That’s why this treatment is such an excellent option for our patients. It quickly and easily smooths away those wrinkles and fine lines under and around the eyes, giving you a younger, smoother look just in one treatment.
Between the Eyebrows
Another common place where wrinkles form is between the eyebrows. This cosmetic injectable treatment is also effective at smoothing away any wrinkles you may have between your brows with no surgical intervention and no downtime, either. This is one of the most common areas that we treat for our patients here at Westover Hills Dermatology.
Frequently Asked Questions About Botox
1. Does the Treatment Hurt?
This treatment isn’t painful at all, particularly compared to surgical procedures like a facelift. It’s non-invasive, entirely safe, and produces excellent results. It’s also very quick, so you can pop in for a treatment session on your lunch break and head right back to work afterward.
2. Is This Treatment Safe?
This treatment has been FDA-approved since 1989, and it’s 100% safe. In fact, Botox is the original and oldest cosmetic injectable available on the market today—that’s because it works! It’s by far the most effective treatment option designed to erase and smooth out mild to severe wrinkles.
3. How Do I Know if I’m a Suitable Candidate?
During your initial consultation, you’ll meet with our aesthetics experts to discuss your general medical history and determine if you’re a suitable candidate. However, if you’re a healthy adult that wants to erase wrinkles and fine lines on your face without painful surgery or downtime, this treatment is the perfect solution.
4. Will the Results Look Natural?
Yes, the results will look entirely natural. In fact, this treatment works by targeting muscles that are “contracted” and stuck into place, which forms wrinkles. The formula relaxes those contracted muscles during the treatment process, allowing for a smooth, wrinkle-free visage. Your results will look just like you, only younger and with fantastic skin!
5. How Quickly Will I See Results?
You will begin to notice results from this treatment in the first few days following your session. Then, the full results will be noticeable in about a week or two.

No, this treatment is suitable for any gender or person who doesn’t want to see the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in the mirror anymore. It’s the perfect solution for a non-invasive, painless, and safe way to smooth the skin out and make it look years younger.
7. What Do I Need to Do Before My First Session?
Generally, there are no specific instructions to follow before your first session. However, sometimes this varies on an individual basis. During your initial consultation, you’ll meet with our aesthetics specialists, who can help determine if you’ll need to follow any directions before your treatment. We’ll make sure that you’re well-informed, comfortable, and safe throughout the entire process.
