Dr. Puig offers Botox® to patients who want to reduce wrinkles and turn back the hands of time. Formally referred to as botulin toxin, botox is a popular injection choice to reduce the appearance of wrinkles that can develop over time. At PHRC, we offer Botox® injections in a safe and professional atmosphere in our Houston clinic.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is an extremely effective muscle relaxant that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles including frown lines between the brow, horizontal forehead creases and crow's feet around the eyes. Botox® injections are found to work best in in patients aged 18 to 65.
Botox® actually blocks impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. After treatment, the overlying skin remains smooth and unwrinkled while the treated facial muscles contract in a normal fashion, allowing your normal every-day facial expressions to be unaffected.
Botox® Injections in Houston
This purified protein is administered in a simple, non-surgical procedure. Low doses of Botox® cosmetic are administered using a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows, around the eyes, forehead, and lower face and neck. In addition, the staff at our Houston office can provide details about its use for excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis).
The procedure takes approximately between 15 to 30 minutes. It is quick, simple and there is absolutely no downtime. You may resume normal activities immediately, as there is minimal discomfort.
Botox® Injection Results
It can take up to 14 days for the Botox® to produce its full effect. Results generally last from 3 to 4 months, but varies from patient to patient.
