BOTOX is a wrinkle treatment used by North Dallas-based, TX (Frisco, Plano, Allen, McKinney) plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Najera, to erase the frown lines between the brows and around the eyes. At our cosmetic surgery office, countless patients receive this nonsurgical wrinkle reducer, which eliminates and softens wrinkles along the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Sometimes, the lines that develop in the glabellar (the area between brows) can be deeper than normal forehead lines. These “11” lines can even happen to fairly youthful people, causing them to appear older. Dr. Najera can combine BOTOX with Juvéderm to give create a complete liquid facelift makeover without surgery.
"Dr. Najera hands down is the BEST doctor. I had a complete mommy make over and Dr. Najera and his staff especially his coordinator Amber have been nothing but EXCELLENT. Office staff is pleasant and professional. Dr. Najera has ALWAYS been about my happiness and well being. He is very professional and explained everything to me and answered EVERY question I ever had. I would recommend him to EVERYONE. From beginning to the end Dr. Najera and his staff have taken GREAT care of me!!!!"- T.S. / Google / Oct 30, 2015
"Breast Cancer/ Breast Reconstruction - I was referred by my breast surgeon to see Dr. Najera for the reconstruction. When I visited the office for the first time I immediately felt comfortable. Originally I was referred to another plastic surgeon and did not feel comfortable in that office. Thankfully I ended up with Dr. Najera. His staff are very courteous and professional. Needing a bilateral mastectomy was scary but they made me feel better about the whole procedure. Dr. Najera was very professional and explained everything clearly. He loves what he does and his work shows. I would absolutely refer Dr. Najera to anyone and everyone. I am very pleased with the results of my reconstruction. Thank you!"- P. / RealSelf / Jan 04, 2017

"34, 2 C-sections and Lots of Damage from Big Ol' Babies - Frisco, TX - It has only been around 6 weeks since my tt, but I cannot say enough good things about not only Dr. Najera, but his amazing office staff. From my very first visit, I felt like everyone was genuinely interested in helping me feel better, physically and self-esteem wise. Any time I had a question, be it by e-mail or phone message, I received a response quickly, and never felt like I was silly for asking. They really want to make sure you are informed for your recovery. So far everything has healed perfectly, and while I am still swollen (totally to be expected at this stage) I could not be happier with my results. I feel so much more confident and cannot wait to be able to do all of the things with my kids that my diastasis was keeping me from before. If you are considering getting a tt or mommy makeover at all, it is totally worth it, and Dr. Najera is a wonderful choice for a surgeon. I would totally do it again."- L. / RealSelf / Aug 18, 2016
A BOTOX treatment usually takes about 30 minutes to administer. Dr. Najera will choose the amount of BOTOX and where to put it based on the patient’s goals. Most patients experience mild discomfort as the needle is placed in their skin. Numbing cream and cold compresses are used to alleviate any discomfort. Patients are allowed to leave and resume their normal activity following the procedure. After treatment, patients should sleep upright for one evening and avoid exercise for 24 hours.
The cost of treatments will depend on how many syringes of BOTOX are used during the procedure. The average cost for a syringe of BOTOX usually runs between $450-$600. Dr. Najera will discuss how many injections he recommends and the cost during the initial consultation.

BOTOX Cosmetic FAQs@headingTag>
What Is Botox?@headingTag>
BOTOX is a product made from botulism, a toxin that can be injected under the skin to stop nerve impulses and relax away wrinkles. BOTOX temporarily paralyzes muscles by blocking the nerve endings.
Is It Safe?@headingTag>
BOTOX is FDA approved and widely used without problems by skilled plastic surgeons. BOTOX was originally developed and approved for use in patients with cervical dystonia, chronic migraine, and other health issues.
Will My Face Be Frozen?@headingTag>
Patients often worry that BOTOX will leave them without the ability to make a range of facial expressions. Because it works by paralyzing the facial muscles, it’s natural to wonder if you’ll lose the ability to move your forehead muscles. However, with BOTOX, you’ll still be able to show a full range of emotions, and no one will have to know you’ve had a cosmetic treatment performed. This nonsurgical procedure offers amazingly natural results. In fact, the majority of our patients that receive BOTOX injections come back regularly for additional treatments.
Will It Last?@headingTag>
Full results from a BOTOX injection will be seen within a few days of treatment, and the results can last as long as 4 months. It is common for our patients to make regular trips back to our Frisco cosmetic surgery office to freshen up with a new round of BOTOX. This treatment can also be used to help maintain the beautiful results of treatments like a brow lift or facelift.
