What is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic is the brand name of the toxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. In very large doses, this bacterium can cause botulism, which is a form of muscle paralysis. It was approved by the FDA in the late 1980s to stop uncontrolled blinking and treat lazy eyes, and cosmetic surgeons and aestheticians have been using it ever since to smooth wrinkles and facial creases.
Today, BOTOX Cosmetic is approved to treat frown lines, crow’s feet and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). BOTOX works by blocking the nerve signal to certain muscles. Once injected with the medication, the muscle can no longer tighten properly, causing the wrinkles to soften.

BOTOX Cosmetic is a versatile treatment that has the potential to completely transform your facial appearance. When administered correctly and by an experienced provider, these injections can:
- Smooth crow’s feet and fine lines caused by squinting

- Improve the appearance of lines around the mouth
- Reduce bands across the neck
- Relax forehead wrinkles
- Minimize chin dimpling
- Contour the jaw
The Jon’Ric BOTOX Cosmetic Experience
There may be a plethora of BOTOX Cosmetic providers in Austin, but Jon’Ric is in a class all its own. Performed in a serene environment by only the most experienced aestheticians, you will emerge from your injections looking younger and feeling your best.
Your treatment will begin during your initial consultation at our office, where we will evaluate your face and devise a plan to address your lines and wrinkles in a way that looks natural and honors your unique anatomy. Your actual injections should take about ten minutes and will be performed in our tranquil spa setting to ensure a relaxing experience. Your entire visit to our office should last about one hour from start to finish.
As we administer the medication, we will be very careful to preserve your ability to move your face and express your emotions with ease, while also visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We believe that the best BOTOX doesn’t erase all signs of aging in favor of a frozen appearance. Rather, it subtly enhances the face and smooths problem areas so that it looks like you’re naturally aging beautifully. Achieving this balance is a true art form, and one that we take great pride in having perfected.
After your BOTOX treatment, there will be no downtime and you’ll be free to return to work and your normal daily routine immediately. In terms of results, a visible improvement in the treated wrinkles should emerge within a few days. The smoothing effects of the medication should endure for up to four months, at which point you will require a repeat session.
