Botox® in Missouri City, TX
Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery is one of the top providers of Botox® treatments for the residents of Missouri City and Houston, Texas.
As you age, the forehead and space between your eyes are the most susceptible to wrinkles due to the natural aging process, stress and repeated muscle use. Forehead wrinkles and furrows between the eyebrows can prematurely age the face and give one an angry or tired appearance. Botox® is one of the quickest, least invasive and highly effective anti-aging procedures for softening the appearance of the skin between the forehead and eyebrow regions.
What Happens During The Botox® Procedure By Dr. David Stapenhorst?
Dr. Stapenhorst uses a small, fine needle to administer Botox® into the muscles of the desired area for treatment. Dr. Stapenhorst’s expertise and years of experience enable him to specifically target muscles on a patient’s face and administer the cosmetic injectable in a natural, highly nuanced pattern. Patients who suffer from severe wrinkling and creasing of the facial skin may require more injections per session to achieve optimal results.
Botox® is one of the most convenient anti-aging procedures for women with little time to spare. Treatment sessions typically take 15 minutes from start to finish. Patients can expect noticeable improvements in as little as two to three days, but the full results will become apparent within one week. The results of a single Botox® treatment can last up to four months. Dr. Stapenhorst often suggests maintenance injections for his patients to prolong their refreshed, more youthful appearance.
When Can Normal Activities Resume After The Botox® Procedure?
Botox® requires little to no downtime so patients can resume most of their normal activities immediately after treatment. However, Dr. Stapenhorst encourages patients to avoid strenuous activity and exercise for 24 to 48 hours after receiving a Botox® injection. This will prevent bruising, swelling and discomfort.
