Protecting yourself from the sun and eating right can help prevent wrinkles, but nothing can stop Mother Nature from smooshing your face together while you sleep. Reverse her wrinkly wrath with today's Groupon: for $259, you get an initial consultation, up to 28 units of Botox, and a follow-up visit at the Texas Institute of Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetics on West Interstate Highway 10 (a $533 value).
Botox consists of minimally invasive protein injections designed to limit the activities of overworked facial muscles and ultimately reduce wrinkles ($349/area). The visage revamping begins with a consultation with Dr. Reza F. Ghohestani, during which he examines patients’ photos from 5–15 years ago to track the development of wrinkles and discuss the fashion merits of JNCO jeans ($155). Once approved for treatment, patients can choose to smoothen one wizened region, including the crow's-feet, forehead, between the eyebrows, around the mouth, or the neck. Results can begin to show within one to two weeks, and the treatment yields little to no recovery time. A post-procedure visit ($29) follows up with the patient and can touch up any lingering crinkles at an additional cost for more Botox units.
Botox may cause serious side effects that can be life threatening, including problems swallowing, speaking, or breathing. Read all safety considerations for Botox here.
