BOTOX® Cosmetic & Dysport®

BOTOX® Cosmetic

At our Texas plastic surgery practice, BOTOX® Cosmetic offers Houston area patients a convenient, non-surgical way to diminish or erase the appearance of wrinkles. As a purified protein toxin, BOTOX® Cosmetic is carefully administered through a series of small injections with a micro-needle. Once applied to the necessary areas, BOTOX® Cosmetic works by paralyzing the muscles around facial wrinkles, forcing them to relax. Once relaxation is achieved, the skin smooths and wrinkles disappear or fade considerably. At our practice in Texas, BOTOX® Cosmetic is most often used to effectively treat deep creases between the brows, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and lines between the nose and mouth. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are not permanent, but the procedure can be repeated as necessary. Dr. David Altamira is very experienced in administering BOTOX® Cosmetic at his Houston practice, making him well qualified to perform your procedure. Contact Dr. David Altamira today in Texas if you are interested in having BOTOX® Cosmetic applied at our Houston practice.


Dysport is an FDA-approved injection used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing facial muscles in the forehead. Similar to BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport is injected directly into the site of wrinkles to prevent the underlying muscles from contracting. Dysport injections are made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, the same protein used in Botox injections.

Dysport injections are ideal for nearly anyone wishing to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and restore a younger, more refreshed appearance. The injections are administered directly into the facial muscles that cause frown lines and other wrinkles; these injections are generally painless, with no need for anesthesia. Treatment sessions typically take less 15 minutes, and are administered at six-week intervals. Three to five injections are usually required to achieve desired results.
