Turn Back Time with BOTOX at our Houston Skin Care Center
BOTOX® is an FDA-approved agent for cosmetic use proven to be effective in the treatment of frown lines and crow’s feet. If interested in BOTOX, Houston residents can rely on The Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas for information and treatment.
Anyone over the age of 25 knows all too well how wrinkles and fine lines can start to take a toll on your overall appearance. As we continue to age, faint lines start to deepen and these wrinkles add years onto an otherwise youthful-looking face. You can remove these age-adding wrinkles and keep your youthful appearance through BOTOX®.
BOTOX® injections can be made around common sites for wrinkles such as the forehead, neck, between the brows, below the eyes, and around the mouth. BOTOX® works by temporarily relaxing the muscles surrounding the injection site, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin. As BOTOX® is only administered via injections, it is an outpatient, non-invasive procedure, allowing thousands of people to achieve younger-looking skin without surgery.
At The Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas, only Dr. Leo Lapuerta administers BOTOX®. Dr. Lapuerta’s many years of experience dealing with the complex anatomy of the face allows him to safely and effectively provide the results possible with BOTOX®. It’s important to note that the only side effect of BOTOX® is muscle weakness surrounding the injection site. As a result, you may have some degree of difficulty making certain expressions such as frowning, raising your eyebrows, or squinting; however, this does subside as time from the injection passes. Since such small doses of BOTOX® are used in each injection, it has been shown to be a safe means to reduce wrinkles and there are no long-term side effects from repeated injections.
