Botox® in Fort Bend, TX
Signature Plastic Surgery, lead by Dr. David Stapenhorst, is proud to offer Botox® procedures to the residents of Fort Bend, Texas.
As you age, the face, forehead, and skin between the eyes become particularly sensitive to developing wrinkles as a result of aging, stress and sun exposure. When a person has wrinkles and fine lines on their forehead and between their eyes, they may appear older or more tired than they actually are. Botox® is an FDA-approved filler made from a unique strain of bacteria. Botox® treatments can smooth out fine lines and wrinkles by blocking nerve signals in the muscles underneath the skin. When these muscles become numbed via Botox®, they will tense, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will disappear. Botox® is one of the safest and fastest methods of smoothing out the forehead and the area between the eyebrows to improve a person’s appearance.
What Happens During The Botox® Procedure By Dr. David Stapenhorst?
During your procedure, Dr. Stapenhorst will use an ultrafine needle to inject a small amount of Botox® beneath the skin of the forehead and the area between the eyes. With years of experience, Dr. Stapenhorst knows exactly how to pinpoint the specific muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines.
Depending on the extent and complexity of the wrinkles, Dr. Stapenhorst may choose to administer several Botox® injections during your treatment. Normally, the Botox® procedure only takes about 15 minutes, which is one of the reasons Botox® is such a convenient solution for busy people. You can expect to see results in just two or three days following your treatment, with the full results visible in about seven days. Most of Dr. Stapenhorst’s clients can expect to enjoy the benefits of a Botox® treatment for three to four months.
When Can Normal Activities Resume After The Botox® Procedure?
Botox® is a popular treatment primarily because there is only a minimal amount of downtime involved. Dr. Stapenhorst recommends that individuals undergoing a Botox® treatment should avoid extremely hot environments and participating in a vigorous physical activity for one to two days in order to minimize the risk of swelling or bruising. Patients can resume almost all other normal activities immediately after their Botox® treatment.
