Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown. Static wrinkles are those you have when you are not trying to make an expression and are usually the result of aged or sundamaged skin. These lines caused by facial muscles can give a person an angry, tired or sad appearance - even when they are not experiencing that emotion. The more emotion you show the deeper these skin wrinkles and lines are more likely to be.
Would you like to know how to get rid of wrinkles? Dr. Caglia performs Botox Cosmetic wrinkle treatments on patients to get rid of wrinkles and to prevent the formation of these dynamic wrinkles, such as forehead furrows, frown lines, and crows feet. Dr. Caglia performs the Botox procedure for patients from Dallas and DFW which includes other cities such as: Richardson, Plano, Frisco, Allen, McKinney, Irving, Southlake, Rockwall, Grapevine and White Rock; he also has patients from Carrollton, Fort Worth, DFW, Addison, Garland, Fort Worth and Mesquite, Texas.
When cosmetic wrinkle treatments with Botox are used in conjunction with Dermal Fillers they give a youthful and rejuvenated face. Botox injections along with other treatments such as Dermal Fillers, SlimLipo Liposuction and Laser Skin Resurfacing are other procedures that can enhance Botox giving you the ultimate naturally youthful appearance you deserve!
Currently, Puretox and Reloxin are similar wrinkle reducers like Botox Cosmetic, but are in clinical trials awaiting FDA approval. We will have these neurotoxin relaxers available as soon the FDA approves them for use.
What is Botox?
Botox is the latest advancement in botulinum toxin therapy (neurotoxin) to get rid of forehead furrows, crows feet and frown lines. It is used to safely, simply and effectively improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead creases and "crow's feet." By relaxing the underlying muscles, Botox reduces wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic is a remarkable treatment for dynamic wrinkles resulting from repeated use of facial muscles.
Does Botox cause botulism?
No. The words "botulinum toxin" often bring to mind images of botulism and food poisoning. Botox is approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles and frown lines. Botulinum toxin has been used to treat neurological disorders for over 30 years. Additionally, the National Institutes of Health issued a consensus statement over a decade ago about the safe use of botulinum toxin for therapeutic use. You can now remove your wrinkles with Botox in Plano and Dallas as well as other suburban areas.
Botox Cosmetic injections actually prevent wrinkles from appearing by relaxing the underlying muscles so they don't contract. Botox blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After receiving Botox treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the untreated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal facial expression to be unaffected.
What are the limitations of Botox Cosmetic?
Unfortunately, Botox injections are only a temporary solution for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. The effects of the Botox treatments last from 4 - 6 months. You will need to have treatments about 2 - 3 times a year. Early clinical studies indicate that after receiving Botox over time, there appears to be a longer lasting effect. This could be due to the relaxing of the skin in that area and breaking the habit of certain facial expressions.
Can I have Botox if I take other drugs?
Most patients can usually be treated with Botox Cosmetic injections regardless of other drugs used. However, some drugs that interfere with nerve impulses to muscles could alter the effect of Botox. It is important to let your doctor know what drugs you are taking during your consultation before undergoing any medical procedure.

What is the treatment like?
Treating wrinkles and wrinkle removal with Botox injections is a simple and safe procedure and the entire treatment takes about 10 minutes.
Dr. Caglia performs Botox Cosmetic injection treatments using a tiny micro-needle. A very small amount of Botox is injected, very precisely, into several locations on your face. Because the needle is so fine and only a small amount of liquid is used, the discomfort associated with the treatment is minimal. Most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. No sedation or local anesthetic is required and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even drive yourself home or back to the office. You may experience some slight temporary bruising at the treatment site. This can be covered with make-up.
