About BOTOX Injections
To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright in Houston, TX is proud to offer BOTOX to local men and women. This nonsurgical procedure provides wonderful aesthetic results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a big enhancement to static lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions from the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic lines can still exist. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle. To correct these dynamic lines, BOTOX is injected, which softens the skin. BOTOX is most commonly placed between the brows, the Crow's feet, and along the forehead. You can schedule a consultation at Albright Plastic Surgery to learn more about BOTOX.
BOTOX is ideal for individuals who want to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines on their face nonsurgically. BOTOX is also used as a preventative treatment even if you are you are younger — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is a great nonsurgical approach if you have forehead lines or noticeable furrows between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, an injectable filler may be recommended. Furthermore, if you are older with severe wrinkles, you may opt for a facelift. This offers a more dramatic result and it is more long term. Our office offers facelifts, brow lifts, and eyelid surgery as great options.
"I whole-heartedly recommend Dr. Albright if you are looking for someone who is smart, talented, and kind. I came to Dr. Albright initially for some injectables and office treatments, but came out with a refreshed sense of beauty. Dr. Albright did all the injections himself (and he kept very meticulous notes so he knew exactly what to do the next time). He was very gentle and explained everything to me in a language that I could understand. I felt very comfortable with him and trusted his judgment. I loved the results - it looked very natural and not drastic. I think this is a result of his artistic talent that he applied to me. When my 3 sisters from out of town came to visit, I brought all of them to see Dr. Albright - they were all equally thrilled with their office procedures and can't wait to come back for more! I have also recommended him to several of my friends who have also had a good experience with him. His staff is delightful and I always feel right at home when I visit his office. Whether you are looking for a cosmetic procedure or a reconstructive procedure, I highly recommend Dr. Albright!"- S.S. / Google / Jul 30, 2020

"I saw Dr. Albright and his team for a few services for me including ultherapy, injectable filler, botox, and Skinpen microneedling. First of all, his staff is incredibly warm and welcoming. This was my second time seeing Dr. Albright, and he is very knowledgeable and has a skilled hand on the injections. The ultherapy and skinpen were done by Carrie and Katie, and they are both great. This was my first time seeing Katie, but second time seeing Carrie. They were both kind and also knowledgeable. I previously saw an oculoplastic surgeon in Austin for injectables and the work done by Dr. Albright and his team gave me a much better result. Will definitely see them again."- S.S. / Google / Aug 24, 2020
"Wow! I am so pleased with the service Dr. Albright and his staff provided. Dr. Albright made me feel very comfortable when I was nervous coming in for Botox injections. He answered all of my questions and did an amazing job with the injections! If you’re looking for first class plastic surgery, look no further!!"- L.G. / Google / Jan 03, 2021
"From my first consultation to my follow up and post-surgical appointments, Dr. Albright and his staff couldn't have been more helpful in making sure my all of my questions and concerns were addressed. All the steps involved in the surgery and after the surgery were explained step by step and all questions were answered clearly and honestly. I knew exactly what to expect after my breast surgery and the follow up care was exceptional! I am now over 1 year out from my surgery and I love the way my breasts look and I feel less pain in my shoulders and back. I am more confident in my appearance now more than ever before. I wish I had done this surgery sooner. I completely trust Dr. Albright and now see him for all my aesthetic needs including Botox, Dysport and Fillers. He always makes me look natural and refreshed vs. “overdone”. I have referred several people in Houston to Dr. Albright for plastic surgery and they love him as much as I do!"- T.S. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
Plan Your Procedure
What to expect
BOTOX injections are done as an outpatient procedure directly in our office. If it is your first time to visit us about BOTOX, we commonly perform the injections during the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions involving the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to determine where the injections are best placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a blunt-tip microcannula needle, which allows for better results and less pain. Your injection will be followed by cold compressions applied to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Patients may request a numbing cream or ice pack to make their treatment feel more comfortable, but this generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, then patients can return to their normal activities with no required recovery period.
After the injection, patients can resume their usual activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. Patients are also asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch their face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for a few days after the injection, but most patients will not experience any long lasting or serious side effects from BOTOX treatments. In most patients, it often takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. Our patients who get BOTOX for their first time are so happy after their first treatment and excited about their results that we almost always continue to see them every few months for their touch-up. We love having our patients back each time as we become a partner in helping them look smooth and rejuvenated!
