Heartland Plastic and Hand Surgery specializes in Botox® treatments for patients from Cape Girardeau, Jackson, Sikeston and surrounding areas
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a prescription drug that is injected into muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), on the forehead, and around the eyes. At Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, Botox® is one of the injectable dermal fillers used to improve your face and make it look more attractive and healthier. Botox® relaxes the tiny facial muscles linked to expression and prevents them from contracting. After a Botox® procedure, the overlying skin remains silky and unwrinkled, while the untreated muscles contract normally.
With real, noticeable results, no surgery, and no downtime, Botox® has been the treatment of choice for millions of patients and their doctors.
Whether you live in Cape Girardeau, Sikeston, or Jackson, you can count on the excellent professional skills of Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery Botox® specialists.

Is Botox® right for me?
If you have noticed that wrinkling between your eyebrows is making you look older than you really are, you may be a perfect candidate for Botox® treatments to improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your eyebrows (glabellar lines), on your forehead, and around your eyes. If just looking more refreshed and healthier is your goal, Botox® injections are the right choice for you. Together with a doctor at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery in Cape Girardeau, you will decide if you are the right candidate for Botox® injections.
How is a Botox® filling administered at your Cape Girardeau practice?
Botox® is administered by a Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery licensed healthcare expert as a basic, nonsurgical treatment. Botox® is directly injected into the muscles between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the forehead. Upon injection, Botox® blocks nerve impulses to the muscles that are being treated. This reduces muscle movement that causes the development of moderate to severe lines between the brows, on the forehead, and around the eyes.
What can I expect after injections with Botox®?
Within a few days, you will notice a striking improvement in the treated areas. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days. Noticeable improvement can last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary. Be sure to talk to your Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery specialist about what you can reasonably expect.
Localized pain, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and bleeding/bruising have occasionally been reported. These side effects of Botox® injections usually fade away within a couple of days. Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery ‘s patients from Cape Girardeau, Sikeston, Jackson, and surrounding areas returned to their regular activities immediately.
Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery consultants will advise you how to treat your skin after the Botox® procedure and will set up a follow-up appointment before you leave.
How much do Botox® treatments cost?
The price for a Botox® procedure varies from patient to patient. During your consultation appointment at our office in Cape Girardeau, you will receive a detailed breakdown of the cost of the procedure as it applies to you.
