An effective Wrinkle Treatment

Botox® Treatment

Wrinkle Treatment in New Braunfels, Texas

BOTOX® in at Hill Country Med Spa is an effective wrinkle treatment to quickly and easily reverse the signs of aging. What is Botox®? Botox® is an FDA-approved prescription medicine used to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines both between the brows and on the forehead, as well as crow’s feet.

Overcome the Natural
Aging Process

Botox® is a naturally occurring toxin that causes paralysis of the muscles in your face to help prevent wrinkles. For a successful wrinkle treatment, Botox® should be injected precisely in the muscle that causes the wrinkle. This causes the muscles to relax over the next 3-7 days and the appearance of the wrinkle goes away. Its effect is temporary, lasting from 2 to 4 months in most people.


Botox® treats dynamic wrinkles, the wrinkles caused by movement of facial muscles. Dynamic wrinkles become static wrinkles over a period of time, causing deep crevices in the skin. Botox® does help improve the appearance of static wrinkles and, when used as a preventative measure, can slow down the appearance of deep-set wrinkles.

Areas it Treats

  • Crow’s Feet
  • The Elevens (lines between eyebrows)
  • Forehead lines
  • Smile lines
  • Smoker’s lines

Procedure Time

Botox® takes 15-20 minutes.

Recovery Time & Side Effects

Minimal to none. Some bruising may occur at the injection site but resolves quickly.  Ptosis or lagging of the eyelid is a rare side effect.

How Botox® Works

Botox® in New Braunfels is an injectable neurotoxin that paralyzes the target muscle by interfering with the nerve supply to that muscle. The effect is temporary as the nerve supply will repair itself in two to four months depending on each individual’s own metabolism. Different effects can be achieved by paralyzing different muscles. For example, an arched eyebrow can be created.

The Botox® Procedure Process

Step 1

The Consultation

The first step in receiving Botox® in New Braunfels is to come in for a consultation. This allows the injector to assess your skin, the severity of your wrinkles, and understand your areas of concern. Initial photos will be taken. If this was not your first visit, your prior injection record will also be reviewed.

Step 2

Mark the Treated Area

A treatment plan for wrinkle treatment will be created, showing the areas to be injected and the amount of Botox® in each injection.

Step 3

Inject Botox®

We use the smallest needle available, 32ga, so the injection is virtually painless and there is minimal bleeding or bruising. The injection process only takes a couple of minutes in most cases.

Wrinkle Prevention

Botox® is the most popular cosmetic treatment on the market. Botox® is used to treat and prevent wrinkles. People today begin receiving Botox® as early as their mid-20s and benefit well into their 90s. Our goal is to help you look your best, naturally. Our motto is… the best injectable is the least detectable!


Typically it takes 3 to 7 days for Botox® to begin working. It’s peak effect is about 14 days. For that reason, a touchup about two weeks after the treatment might be necessary. Our philosophy is to use as little Botox® as is needed to get your wrinkle treatment accomplished. We can always add more! It will take 3 to 7 days to notice visible results and 14 days for peak results.

Post Treatment

There are a few precautions to take after Botox®:

  • Don’t exercise heavily for the remainder of the day.
  • Don’t lie down for four hours
  • Don’t rub your face. That could cause migration of the Botox® and unintended muscles could become paralyzed.
  • If there is some discomfort, an ice bag can be used.
  • If possible, exercise the muscles to be paralyzed. Make a frown, raise your eyebrows, make a big smile. That enhances the effectiveness of the Botox®.
