The most frequent med spa treatment performed in Austin, Botox is a minimally invasive treatment that softens facial lines and wrinkles that develop as we age. That’s why it is often referred to as a “wrinkle relaxer.”
Botox injections will not dramatically change your facial appearance, but the results are natural looking and striking. The muscles are simply relaxed, so you can still frown, smile or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a clear liquid that is injected with an ultra-fine needle into the area being treated. It prevents nerve signals in the facial muscles from contracting, causing the fine lines and wrinkles to relax and soften.
Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother — creating a more natural relaxed appearance. It has been used for over 20 years, and is safe and very effective.

What Issues Does Botox Correct?
Botox quickly “airbrushes” out wrinkles and facial lines between your eyebrows, forehead, eye area, and smile lines. It is ideal for:
- Furrowed brows
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet (wrinkles at corner of the eyes)
- Bunny lines (wrinkles beside the nose)
- Smile lines or laugh lines
- Frown lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Eyebrow reshaping
- Improving facial symmetry
- Preventing wrinkles from deepening over time
- Early prevention of the affects of aging
What Does An Injection Feel Like?
Quick and minimally invasive, your certified practitioner will inject Botox with a very small needle directly into the muscles that need to be relaxed. Most people feel only a tiny stinging sensation and experience no discomfort once the treatment is complete — immediately returning back to work or normal activity. On a scale from 1-10, most guests rate it a 1-2.
When Will I See Results From My Treatment?
You will see a noticeable improvement within 7-14 days of treatment, with results lasting 3-4 months.
How Often Will I Need Botox Injections?
We each metabolize the product at a different rate, so the outcome is somewhat different for each person. Optimal results are typically achieved when treatments are received at regular intervals — around 3-4 times per year.
With continued use, many guests find they can decrease the maintenance to between 2-3 visits per year. Muscle mass, age, and desired outcome will also inform your treatment protocol.
How Much Does Botox Cost?
It depends on the size of your facial muscles, the number of areas you are treating, the number of product units required, and your desired outcome. Men usually need more treatments than women because they have larger facial muscles. Most Botox treatments range from $250-$650.
