Botox® in Cape Girardeau, MO
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. 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, please make an appointment for a consultation today.

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 Botox® administered at your Cape Girardeau practice?
Botox® is directly injected into the muscles between the eyebrows, around the eyes, and on the forehead. It is injected only by the Board Certified plastic surgeons. 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. Please arrive early to be seated in a private waiting room where ice packs and numbing cream is available for no additional charge.
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 Medical Spa 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.

The Importance of Master Injectors
Unlike other providers, master injectors have extensive training in safety, facial anatomy, the risks and benefits of individual products, and creating a customized treatment plan to help patients reach their goal results. At Heartland Plastic Surgery, our master injectors, J. Stewart Humphrey, MD, and David M. Deisher, MD, are board-certified plastic surgeons with over 35 years of combined experience in the Cape Girardeau area.
As Master Injectors, Dr. Humphrey, and Dr. Deisher are each credentialed to deliver excellent results and ensure a patient’s health and safety when providing dermal fillers or Botox. Master injector training builds on their expertise in plastic surgery, offering patients superior results. Dr. Humphrey and Dr. Deisher understand how to avoid the “frozen” look that improper Botox injections can result in or the “overfilled” look of improper dermal filler injections. Instead, patients enjoy excellent, natural-looking results tailored to their unique facial anatomy and aesthetic preferences.
