As you drive around town, you may notice a variety of places offering BOTOX® injections at fairly low prices. One of the reasons for this is that any number of different medical practitioners can offer BOTOX® to patients at almost any cost they please.

While BOTOX® may seem like a very common, simple procedure, it is still a long-term cosmetic procedure that should be performed by a professional cosmetic surgeon, like Dr. Vasdev Rai in Dallas, Texas. If BOTOX® injections are performed incorrectly, the results can leave your face feeling or looking paralyzed for months.

When BOTOX® is injected below the facial skin, it paralyzes the targeted muscle, preventing it from contracting. This helps to smooth the skin over that muscle. BOTOX® injections can be performed by ophthalmologists and other specialists who are not as familiar with facial aesthetics as an experienced plastic surgeon.

When performed by the right cosmetic surgeon, BOTOX® can have very pleasing results. This is partly because a cosmetic surgeon will take your entire face into account and determine whether BOTOX® injections are the best option to meet your goals, or whether a facial filler, for example, might be better. If you are considering BOTOX®, do not go to the cheapest place you can find; examine a few different cosmetic surgery offices to determine who the best BOTOX® doctor is for you.

If you live in the Dallas or Fort Worth, Texas area and are considering BOTOX® injections, please contact Dr. Vasdev Rai today to schedule your initial consultation.
