As you age, your skin starts to show fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated facial expression and thinning skin. Botox and Dysport are injectable treatments that diminish the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles–no plastic surgery required.
At Studio 360 Med Spa, we offer safe Botox and Dysport injections performed by board-certified injectors in Highland Village, Texas. Contact us to discover the benefits of these injectables for yourself!
What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is the first FDA-approved and most popular injectable for reducing fine lines in the facial area. It contains the botulinum toxin (onabotulinumtoxinA), a neurotoxin that prevents nerves from communicating with muscles. This effect temporarily relaxes the facial muscles around the injection site and visibly reduces the appearance of any facial lines and wrinkles for several months. Neurotoxins can also be injected preventatively to stop the lines from forming in the first place.
Thanks to Botox’s immense popularity, multiple neurotoxins are now on the market. One is Dysport, which is specifically approved for the treatment of glabellar lines, or vertical lines between the eyebrows.
In addition to cosmetic uses, neurotoxins have several medical purposes. They can treat migraine headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain in the jaw, hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating and more.
- Effective, fast wrinkle reduction
- Safe and non-surgical with little risk of adverse side effects
- More affordable than surgical procedures
- Can become more effective with time
Botox Treatment Areas
Botox and other neurotoxins are usually injected into different zones of the face and neck. At your consultation, your provider will go over each area to discuss how Botox might be beneficial to each.
Forehead and brows
Botox injections can help with the appearance of forehead wrinkles, act as a brow lift, treat crow’s feet around your eyes and reduce glabellar lines, or frown lines, between your brows.
Botox can smooth out the wrinkles and creases around the lips known as laugh lines. It’s also frequently injected into the masseter, the jaw muscle responsible for chewing. Relaxing an overstimulated masseter can both solve jaw pain and slim the face.
Another use is the Botox lip flip, in which the Botox is injected above the upper lip to relax that muscle and create the appearance of fuller lips.
Botox can be injected into the upper neck for a “Nefertiti lift,” which defines the chin and jawline. It’s also used in the platysma, the thin layer of muscle over your throat, to prevent the tense vertical lines called platysmal bands.
Underarms and hands
As a treatment for hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, Botox is injected in a grid-like pattern to the affected areas. The neurotoxin relaxes overactive sweat glands to temporarily solve this common issue.

Botox-Type Injectable Brands We Offer
Currently, we offer two neurotoxin brands at Studio 360 Med Spa.
The original injectable neurotoxin, Botox was first FDA-approved in 2002 and since has become the most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. Well-studied, effective and extremely safe, Botox treats moderate to severe wrinkles and has multiple medical uses.
Dysport is a different formulation of onabotulinumtoxinA. It contains fewer proteins and is believed to reduce the risk of therapy failure, i.e., developing a tolerance to the injections. Dysport is FDA-approved for glabellar lines but is often used off-label for the same purposes as Botox Cosmetic.
Ideal Candidates for Botox-Type Injectables
Good candidates for neurotoxin injections are men and women who are:
- Aged 18 and up
- Dissatisfied with their fine lines and wrinkles or wish to prevent them from developing
- In good general physical health
- Not pregnant or breastfeeding
Before & Afters
Two days after treatment, you’ll see a visible reduction in severe lines around the area and your skin will have a smoother appearance. Within a week you will see complete results when any bruising, redness, and swelling have subsided. Your skin takes on a youthful, smooth appearance, with fewer wrinkles.
What to Expect from Your Botox Treatment
Prepare yourself for treatment by refraining from using alcohol, aspirin, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and tobacco as these can increase your risk of bruising and bleeding. If you’re on blood thinning medication, talk to both our team and your health care provider before scheduling a Botox appointment.
Upon arrival at Studio 360 Med Spa, you’ll be greeted by our friendly reception staff. They will check you in for your appointment and provide you with any necessary paperwork to fill out, including medical history and consent forms. This is also a good time to mention any questions or concerns you might have regarding your treatment.
Next, you’ll meet with one of our experienced and licensed practitioners. They’ll review your paperwork, discuss your aesthetic goals, and assess your overall health and skin condition. It’s essential to be open and honest about your medical history and expectations during this consultation, especially if it’s your first time getting Botox. Based on the consultation, the practitioner will design a personalized treatment plan that best suits your needs and desired results.
Before starting the treatment, the practitioner will clean the areas of injection to prevent infection. If you’re concerned about potential discomfort during the procedure, a topical numbing cream may be applied, although this is typically unnecessary as Botox injections cause minimal discomfort.
Once your skin is prepared, the practitioner will carefully administer the Botox injections using a very fine needle. The procedure involves injecting small amounts of Botox into specific muscles in your face. The number of injections will depend on various factors, including the extent of the area being treated. The process is relatively quick and typically takes 10–20 minutes.
Recovery and aftercare
It’s generally recommended to avoid touching the treated area for a few hours and refrain from lying down or doing strenuous activities for the rest of the day. Mild side effects like bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site are possible but usually subside within a few days.
A follow-up appointment is often scheduled two weeks after the treatment to assess the results and decide if additional injections are necessary.
Throughout this process, our focus is on your comfort and satisfaction. At Studio 360 Med Spa, we strive to ensure you feel informed and confident about your decision to receive Botox injections and that you leave feeling your best.
Cost of Botox in Highland Village, Texas
The biggest cost factor for this treatment will be the number of units of Botox or other injectable used. The number of units your treatment requires depends on the area which you’re looking to treat: smaller areas, like crow’s feet, will need fewer units, while larger areas like your forehead or jawline will require more.
On average, expect to pay $250–$500 per treatment. We also frequently offer specials and package deals!

Is Botox toxic?
Botox is a neurotoxin, but that doesn’t mean it’s toxic. It’s been FDA-approved for medical purposes since 1989 and when injected in small quantities, is considered very safe.
Can I do facial exercises and get the same results?
If performed regularly, facial exercises can slightly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and other lines. However, they’re not as effective as Botox-type injectables and won’t create as dramatic results.
Which neurotoxin will be best for me?
It depends on what your treatment objectives are and what area you’re looking to treat. We’ll discuss your aesthetic goals at your consultation to determine which brand will be most effective for you.
How often do I have to get injections?
Many of our patients choose to receive Botox every 3–4 months to maintain their youthful, wrinkle-free look. Some people find that over time, their Botox lasts longer as their formerly overworked muscles acclimate to the new, more relaxed state.
