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.

The recovery went well as well."- C.G. / Healthgrades / Jan 09, 2021
"After seeing two urologists, dealing with frequent UTI’s and overactive bladder over a period of two years plus trying several medications that did not work, my primary Doctor referred me to Dr. Aimee Nguyen. I saw her P.A., Tian at my first appointment, and though disappointed at first not to see the doctor, I learned more about UTI’s and my step by step options than I could imagine. She also diagnosed a rectal prolapse. I had a couple more appointments involving diagnostic tests. Dr. Nguyen diagnosed a bladder lesion during a cystoscopy and suggested surgery to excise it as well as repair the rectal prolapse - two separate surgeries at the same time. I really didn’t know what to expect, and was worried about postop pain and recovery time. Dr. Nguyen explained the procedures and patiently answered my questions which calmed my nerves. Surgery went well, pre and postop. I am now four weeks post op. I can honestly say I had no pain following surgery. I would highly recommend Dr Aimee Nguyen and her staff at North Dallas Urogynecology. The annoying and painful bladder symptoms are gone! Thank you Dr. Nguyen!!"- K.Z. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
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.
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.
