Belage Center for Facial Plastic Surgery

Botox FAQ

BOTOX is a popular product that most people know minimizes wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. Still, many patients are curious about how it works and whether BOTOX or an alternative treatment, such as Dysport® or XEOMIN®, is best suited to meet their cosmetic goals.

The Belage Center specializes in combining BOTOX and other injectables for comprehensive facial rejuvenation in a treatment called a liquid facelift. Request a consultation at our Houston practice using the online form or by calling our office at

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical wrinkle treatment. It is not a substitute for surgical rejuvenation procedures such as a face lift, but it is good for treatment of early signs of facial aging and can be a complement to other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Is BOTOX® safe?

At the Belage Center for Facial Plastic Surgery, we would never utilize an unsafe product. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved facial enhancement treatment that does involve a small risk of adverse side effects. Dr. Yalamanchili will discuss the risks with you and ensure you meet the standards for treatment in order to reduce these risks. For a more in-depth discussion on this topic, please visit our page on BOTOX® safety.

Will I look different right after treatment?

Although you may notice some slight wrinkle improvement immediately following treatment, results typically become fully apparent within a week. There is no recovery time needed, but minimal redness and swelling can mask the results during the day of treatment.

How can I maximize my BOTOX® results?

Besides updating your treatment with additional sessions every 3 – 4 months, you may choose to combine BOTOX® with other facial enhancement options, such as facial cosmetic surgery and/or injectable options like Dysport®, Juvéderm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Radiesse®, and Sculptra® Aesthetic.

How does BOTOX® differ from facial fillers?

It is a treatment that minimizes the appearance of specific facial wrinkles by limiting the muscle activity that causes those wrinkles to form. As opposed to the facial fillers that actually “fill in” wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment creates an improvement by causing facial muscles to relax and “let go” of wrinkles and creases.

Why should I Choose the Belage Center to provide my BOTOX® treatment?
