BOTOX® and Fillers Houston
Our wrinkle relaxer of choice is BOTOX®. Houston men and women love the way it resolves wrinkles between the eyes, across the forehead and at the smile lines beside the eyes! BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily blocks the nerve impulses that make these muscles contract, eliminating the wrinkles. Continued use of BOTOX® Cosmetic long term also prevents wrinkles from deepening and getting worse. The results last anywhere from three to six months, depending on the patient and the continued use of the product.
What To Expect From Botox® Cosmetic
Results from BOTOX® Cosmetic should be seen within about a week. You won’t see these muscles “freeze,” but you will see a natural appearance with less wrinkling.
Houston men and women come to Bayview Plastic Surgery for Juvéderm® XC to fill in larger creases, folds and wrinkles, to replenish lost facial volume, and to plump lips. In addition to providing immediate volume correction, Juvéderm® XC also stimulates production of your own natural collagen. The results are both immediate and long-lasting. This collagen growth continues several months after your treatment, extending the effects of the filler for up to a year in some patients.
Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Donna Rich uses a topical numbing cream prior to performing injections that eases the discomfort. In addition, Juvéderm® XC contains a numbing agent to further add to the comfort of our patients.
What To Expect From Juvederm®
You may have minor swelling and bruising of your face following Juvéderm®, which is normal and may be reduced with the use of ice packs.
