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 and 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 down time, 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 and Hand Surgery BOTOX® specialists.
We have treated numerous BOTOX® clients and will be happy to answer any questions
you may have. If you want to learn more about BOTOX® treatments in Cape Girardeau,

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 and 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 and Hand Surgery licensed healthcare
expert as a basic, nonsurgical treatment. BOTOX® is directly injected into the
muscles between the eye brows, 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® Cosmetic?
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
and 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 and Hand Surgery ‘s patients
from Cape Girardeau, Sikeston, Jackson and surrounding areas returned to their regular
Heartland Plastic and Hand Surgery consultants will advise you how to treat your
skin after the BOTOX® procedure and will set up a follow-up appointment before
