After decades of smiling, frowning, laughing, glaring, and making every possible facial expression, dynamic wrinkles begin to etch the face. Dynamic wrinkles are moderate to severe lines that are shown when the facial muscles contract. For example, crow’s feet appear when the orbicularis oculi muscles move and frown lines show up when the corrugator and procerus muscles flex. At North Dallas Urogynecology, double board-certified surgeon, Dr. Aimee Nguyen offers BOTOX treatments to her Frisco and Plano area patients to temporarily relax the facial muscles and soften dynamic wrinkles. BOTOX treatments may be performed alone or with another treatment, like Juvéderm dermal filler injections, to give the patient further relief from signs of aging for a refreshed, youthful appearance.
"If you are looking for the best doctor in the DFW area for Urogynecology Dr. Aimee Nguyen is it. 2 kids and turning 40 had me in the market for a sling for my bladder and some reconstruction in the vaginal/rectum area. She did a superb job with my surgery, no issue during or after. Everything went absolutely perfect. I truly believe Dr. Nguyen's skills are thee best and that is very reassuring to a patient. Any concerns I had she addressed through out the process. Her medical staff also did an excellent job in my care. I would definitely recommend her and would go back to her if I have an issue that she services."- S.W. / Google / Jan 29, 2018
"I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen - Dr. Nguyen has great bedside manners, thorough explanation and holds her work to the highest standards. I had a vaginoplasty along with a bladder sling two years ago to help with incontinence and Interstitial Cystitis after having 4 kiddos. I recently returned to her office and had the G shot and Vaginal Rejuvination Shot. I would highly recommend her for any female issues you are having. I've referred two friends who have also worked with her and all of us have been extremely satisfied."- A. / RealSelf / Feb 21, 2020
"I cannot thank Dr Nguyen and Tien enough! Tien was very kind and patient and compassionate upon my initial visit with painful bladder symptoms. I appreciated the professional way she approached the situation. The front office staff was friendly and attentive.Thank you Tien and Dr Nguyen for giving me back my quality of life!"- M.O. / Google / Jan 30, 2020
"Kybella - I’ve been wanting Kybella for a little over 2 years and decided to take the plunge and do it on my 29th birthday (January 17, 2020). For reference I’m 109lbs and 5ft. I’ve always had a small double chin but it got worse with each pregnancy (2) and never went away like the rest of my pregnancy weight. During the consultation I was recommended 2 sessions (2nd session scheduled March 6th) 3 vials each time. We did the 1st session immediately after the consultation. The numbing was the most painful part, after that everything was a breeze.I’ll post pics of my journey. Today is day 1 following treatment (not 24hrs post yet) and I have some sensitivity and my “double chin” is jiggly. Some slight bruising but other than that no issues. I was advised to sleep elevated which I did and will continue to do so for the next 2 nights at least. I iced 3-4 times yesterday and so far 1 time today. I’ll post pics today of a couple months before/a couple weeks before/immediately after procedure/today (1 day after)."- E. / RealSelf / Jan 18, 2020

BOTOX Procedure Technique
For one area, BOTOX treatments usually take about 10 minutes to complete. Dr. Nguyen will use 3 – 5 injections for crow’s feet area and about 5 injections for the frown lines. If needed, cold compresses and numbing creams can be applied to the injection areas before treatment to help with patient discomfort, but most patients feel fine after the initial prick of the injection. Patients are able to leave immediately and resume their daily activities.
BOTOX Expected Cost
Most BOTOX treatments cost between $250 and $500 per session, but this can vary based on the number of areas treated and the severity of the patient’s wrinkles. During the initial consultation, Dr. Nguyen will talk to the patient about cost estimates and payment options.

BOTOX Cosmetic FAQs
What's In BOTOX?
The main ingredient in BOTOX, botulinum toxin protein, is a highly purified form of Clostridium botulinum. This safe, effective formula can be administered in different potencies and doses to customize the level of treatment based on the patient’s needs.
When injected by a trained professional, like Dr. Nguyen, BOTOX is very safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (F.D.A.) for cosmetic purposes. In addition to softening dynamic wrinkles, BOTOX can be used to treat several medical concerns, including excessive sweating, migraines, cervical dystonia, and more.
Many people have associated BOTOX with a frozen, expressionless face that is easily noticed by friends and family, but when performed by a trained plastic surgeon, like Dr. Nguyen creates a refreshed, but not immobile appearance. The strength of the BOTOX formula is customized for each patient, so Dr. Nguyen uses the best dosage that will relax the muscles without paralyzing them. After BOTOX treatments at North Dallas Urogynecology, patients will still be able to make a wide range of facial expressions and only a trained professional will be able to tell that BOTOX is the reason for their younger look.
Touch Up Appointments?
Most patients will see their BOTOX results last for up to 4 months, but this can vary is each person. Dr. Nguyen recommends that patients schedule a BOTOX session every 3 – 4 months, or as needed, to keep their results. Since BOTOX treatments only take about 10 minutes, many Plano and Frisco area patients come by for a quick lunchtime touch up.
