The Houston economy is slowly improving, and since the meltdown of 2009, many Houstonians have put off cosmetic procedures or the “extras” of life to save money, but now is the time to make an investment in you. Though a facelift or body contouring procedure may not be in your budget yet, there are less expensive ways to give yourself a fresh look. Botox and facial fillers are a great way to revitalize your face. Botox relaxes the facial muscles that can cause lines and wrinkles, like crow’s feet. Facial fillers are designed to fill wrinkles and for lip augmentation. Be wary of “Botox parties” that are hosted at nail or hair salons, and by people who are not qualified to use Botox and dermal fillers, as this can be harmful and make your face look unflattering. Dr. Michael Eisemann of the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center is a triple board certified physician who understands the dynamics of facial muscles and how to properly and effectively use dermal fillers and Botox.
