Botox and Dysport injections are both FDA approved as an effective way to treat wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, crow’s feet (eye area) and around the mouth. Xeomin is FDA approved to lines along the forehead and between the brows.Patients say that they have a softer, friendlier, more rested appearance after a treatment.
At ACPS, we administer Houston Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections by the area rather than by the unit. This is because our nurse injectors understand that some patients require a greater number of units per area than others due to the strength of their facial muscles. The diagram below displays the different injection sites that are included in any given area.

The effects of Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are temporary and usually wear off anywhere between three to six months. Lines around the mouth return in 2-3 months. The product is injected directly into the muscle through a small needle by one of our physicians or nurse injectors. Patients can return to work that day and in most cases could participate in a social engagement that evening.
When injected locally into a muscle, Botulinum toxin type A produces a reversible paralysis of that muscle. The FDA also has approved Botox® for use in treating conditions known as strabismus and blepharospasm or disorders of the facial nerve in patients aged 12 and above. It has also proven to be effective for treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the palms and armpits.
Any complications from this injection treatment are usually temporary because of the non-permanent nature of Botulinum toxin. A thorough discussion of the risks and potential complications is an essential part of the consultation process prior to undergoing any aesthetic surgical procedure.
