Houston facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Russell Kridel and Dr. Sean Delaney,  are experts in facial rejuvenation treatments, including non-invasive Botox treatments. At FPSA, our physician designs and performs Botox treatments tailored to the individual’s aesthetic goals. In the hands of this skilled specialist, Botox can eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows and along the forehead, as well as crow’s feet and laugh lines, and re-shape eyebrows to give patients a more vibrant and youthful look.


Botox is an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer. Known as a neurotoxin (or neuromodulator), Botox decreases the visual appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in areas on the face that show expression, such as the forehead, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. Dr. Kridel and Dr. Delaney also use Botox to shape eyebrows. It can also help relieve medical issues such as, excessive sweating and migraine headaches. Once injected, the medication causes the underlying muscles to relax with a localized reduction of the muscle activity in the injected area. The result creates a smoother surface and more youthful appearance.

What Sets Us Apart?

At FPSA, your Botox treatments are performed by board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Russell Kridel, Dr. Sean Delaney or a registered nurse under the direct supervision of the surgeon. This provides patients with the peace of mind that they are in the hands of a physician who focuses solely on the face and neck and the procedure is done in the safety and comfort of a medical office environment. In addition, Dr. Kridel and Dr. Delaney makes sure patients are comfortable and experience very little discomfort during their treatment session, so patients can be given numbing cream or a dental block if they desire. At FPSA, our team takes facial injections quite seriously and believes it is important for patients to have highly skilled and trained hands that can tailor injections to your specific needs with greater finesse, rather than a one size fits all approach at many medical spas. In addition, our staff can deposit points into your Brilliant Distinctions loyalty program account at your office visit.

Administering BOTOX

Botox is administered by Dr. Kridel or Dr. Delaney during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30-45 minutes. The depth, length, quantity and location of wrinkles varies for each patient. Therefore, the injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored specifically to your facial structure and aesthetic goals. Dr. Kridel and Dr. Delaney will mark the specific areas on the face that are going to be treated with a washable marker. There is no downtime and patients can return home or to work after their appointment.

I’m very happy with the result of my Botox and fillers treatments by Dr. Delaney. Dr. Delaney is very patient and attentive. I have had Botox done in various places and Dr. Delaney is the only one called the day after to check on me. I’m planning to have some laser treatments in the near future and even a face lift by Dr. Delaney when the time comes.

Dr Delaney is fantastic and very skilled. I've had 4 other plastic surgeons do botox on my face and I am by far the most satisfied with Dr Delaney's work. I look natural, my eyelids don't look heavy and the lines I wanted gone are now gone. I am going back to him in the future if I need anything further.

What to Expect

Immediately following a series of Botox injections, there may be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few hours.  It typically takes 4-7 days for Botox to take effect after treatment. The result is wrinkles will cease to appear and skin appears smooth and soft.

Expected Costs

Treatment costs vary for each patient depending on how much Botox is used. For men, it may take a larger dose to achieve the desired effect. A treatment session typically takes 1-3 syringes, with costs ranging between $360-$800 per session.

About Us
Is it Safe?

Botox is approved by the FDA and has a long, safe history. It is administered in over 75 countries and consistently ranks as the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in America. However, even with its popularity, Botox is a drug and should only be administered by a qualified medical practitioner. Botox is not recommended for patients with some medical conditions. You should review these with the physician at the time of your consultation.

Comparable Medication?

Dysport is also an FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer similar to Botox. It is also a neurotoxin, but the chemical balance is just slightly different between Dysport and Botox, so patients can react differently. One may be more effective than another depending on the patient. Plus, patients can develop a tolerance to one specific brand over time and can switch to another neurotoxin brand option.

BOTOX or Filler?

Wrinkle relaxers, like Botox and Dysport, temporarily freeze the underlying muscle. They do not fill in any lines and are more effective at removing wrinkles in the upper third of the face. Conversely, injectable fillers such as, Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane, are not wrinkle relaxers. Fillers help decrease wrinkles by adding volume to certain facial structures, which creates the appearance of smooth skin. Fillers are more effective in the bottom 2/3rds of the face. During your consultation, Dr. Kridel and Dr. Delaney will do a thorough examination and discuss your aesthetic goals. He will design a treatment plan specific to your needs which may include wrinkle relaxers, wrinkle fillers or a combination of both.

Best Age?

Men and women who wish to soften and decrease facial lines and wrinkles may be candidates for Botox. The most common age to receive Botox injections is between 34-55. However, many patients in their late twenties and early thirties, have Botox injections at the early signs of aging to help timeshift the aging process. There are also a wide range of patients over the age of 55 who effectively use Botox to reduce the signs of aging and better match their youthful spirit.

Long Lasting?

Botox is not a permanent fix. Results will last for three to six months – sometimes longer – but they will not last forever. To maintain the youthful effects, patients have repeat injections as soon as they see signs that frown lines or wrinkles are returning, normally about 2 to 3 times a year.
