How Does Botox Work?

Wrinkles are the result of muscle contractions. Or, to be more precise, they’re the results of billions of muscle contractions that occur over the course of your entire life. Any individual contraction is meaningless, but as we age these contractions accumulate and result in wrinkles.

Those contractions are caused by signals sent from your brain and conveyed by nerves to the muscles. Your face is criss-crossed with nerves and muscles, and it’s vulnerable to the signs of age and wear.

This is where BOTOX® Cosmetic comes in. It’s a weakened, medically engineered version of the botulinum toxin, and it works by blocking your nerves from receiving contraction signals from the brain. This prevents your nerves from telling your muscles to contract. Before long, your muscles will relax, smoothing out your skin and eliminating wrinkles and creases.

The end result is a smoother, tighter, more youthful looking face without the appearance of fatigue and age.

BOTOX®‘s results are temporary, and after a few months your facial muscles will once begin to contract, producing more wrinkles. You can return to our office for another treatment, though at a certain point the injections will begin losing effectiveness.

If you live in the Houston, Texas area and you have questions about how BOTOX® can work for you, please call The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today at 713-766-0071 or contact us online for a consultation.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
