Botox® in Rosenberg, TX
Residents of Rosenberg and Houston, Texas can receive Botox® treatments from Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery.
For most people, the signs of aging begin in the forehead or between the eyes. Fine wrinkles can form in these spots making a person look tired or even angry. Botulinum toxin, known as Botox®, can smooth wrinkles and fine lines. Botox® blocks nerve signals to facial muscles, preventing them from tightening to form wrinkles and lines. As a result, it is one of the quickest ways to give your skin a more youthful appearance.
What Happens During The Botox® Procedure By Dr. David Stapenhorst?
When you receive a Botox® treatment from Dr. Stapenhorst, he will inject Botox® into the muscles of your forehead with a very small needle. The muscles he chooses to target will be determined according to the wrinkles you are trying to eliminate, so each procedure is personally tailored to the patient’s needs. The number of Botox® injections you will receive is also determined by the amount and depth of the wrinkles Dr. Stapenhorst is treating. A typical session takes about 15 minutes, making it easy to fit the procedure into even the busiest of schedules. You will notice results in the first few days, with full results appearing about a week after treatment. Your results will last approximately three to four months. The procedure can then be repeated for maintenance.
When Can Normal Activities Resume After The Botox® Procedure?
One of the benefits of Botox® is that it is a quick procedure with a minimal recovery time. To lessen the chance of swelling or bruising you should avoid strenuous exercise for the first day or two after your treatment, but most patients report they are able to go about their normal routines the same day they receive their Botox® injections.
