Botox® in Richmond, TX
Residents of Richmond and Houston, Texas can target their fine lines and wrinkles with Botox® treatments from Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery.
Many people find that as they age, the space between their eyes and the skin on their forehead become lined with wrinkled. It may seem as if there is no cure for the ravages of time, but Dr. David Stapenhorst is proud to offer cutting-edge treatments to his patients. Botulinum toxin, known as Botox®, smooths wrinkles and fine lines that result from aging and stress. Botox® actually blocks nerve signals to facial muscles, preventing them from tightening to form wrinkles and lines. As a result, it can give your skin a more youthful appearance in a few short days.
What Happens During The Botox® Procedure By Dr. David Stapenhorst?
Using a tiny needle, Dr. David Stapenhorst will inject Botox® into the forehead muscles and between the eyebrows. Dr. Stapenhorst’s advanced training and medical expertise aid him in deciding which muscles require injections based upon the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles. He may deliver several Botox® injections, depending on the severity of the wrinkles.
A Botox® treatment normally takes about 15 minutes, which makes it the perfect procedure for people with busy lives. Results can be seen in as little as two or three days after the treatment, and full results can be expected in around one week. Botox® results normally last about three or four months, at which point the procedure can be repeated in order to preserve your youthful appearance.
When Can Normal Activities Resume Following A Botox® Treatment?
Botox® treatments involve very little recovery time. Dr. Stapenhorst recommends that patients refrain from vigorous physical activity or overheating for a day or two following their treatment in order to reduce bruising. Patients can return to their daily activities immediately following their Botox® procedure.
