To age gracefully and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Houston Premier Dermatology in Houston, TX is proud to offer BOTOX to local individuals. This facial rejuvenation treatment provides amazing results and is very common among both women and men. This injectable can make a big enhancement to lines and wrinkles, which happen from making expressions with the contracting muscles on the upper face. The lines may or may not disappear as the face relaxes. The BOTOX we use is a clean and purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily freezes the movements of the muscle. To ease the appearance of these lines, BOTOX is injected to relax and soften the skin. BOTOX is most commonly placed by dermatologist Dr. Catherine Papasakelariou between the brows where the number "11" appears, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and throughout the forehead.
"Dr. Papasakalariou is a wonderful doctor, bubbling over with personality and enthusiasm, as well as being a very fine skilled dermatologist. Her staff are also very warm, pleasant, and helpful. It is a joy to come to this practice. Mel Pichanick, MD"- M.P. / Google / Dec 14, 2020
"⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Dr. P has the magic touch! Not only is she incredible in her field of practice, but she is an advocate for a woman’s natural beauty! She strongly encourages women to be confident in their skin and to make choices out of freedom not pressure. I am a 32 yr old woman and made the choice to get Dysport in order to get a softer look. The day of my appointment I advised her as to where my troubled areas were and she gave her professional advice on where to safely apply the Dysport. A WOW were the results I received! Thank you Dr. P for making my appointments and results a 5 ⭐️ WOW!"- A.B. / Google / Dec 14, 2020
"I loved my experience with Dr. P! A month prior to my visit, I had gone to another dermatologist and the experience was a waste of time and money. I was only seen by the PA and never a doctor, and the office visit was a quick 5 minutes. When I found Dr. P, I was so impressed with her genuine demeanor and how long she stayed in the room listening to all of my concerns. I walked out feeling confident and pleased with the visit. I would highly recommend Dr. P to everyone."- R.N. / Google / Nov 27, 2020
"Certainly easy to understand why this clinic has so many 5 star reviews. I called a couple weeks ago to make an appointment as a new patient for an annual skin cancer screening. It can sometimes be a bit dreadful calling doctors offices, but I was amazed with the patience of the receptionist as well as her willingness to answer my questions. Today I had my appointment, and it went every bit as great as my phone call to set it up. The Dr. was attentive, thorough, and gave me a lot of information and suggestions. She explained everything in a way which was easy to understand. I could not have been more impressed, and will certainly look forward to going back next year."- D.W. / Google / Nov 19, 2020

Is botox for you?
BOTOX is great for patients who hope to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on their face without surgery. Even if you do not show signs of aging, patients may also use BOTOX as a preventive treatment. Keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. BOTOX is a great nonsurgical treatment if you have forehead lines, frown lines between the brows, or lines around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, an injectable filler is generally more suitable.
BOTOX injections are available as an outpatient procedure at Houston Premier Dermatology. At your first consultation, Dr. Papasakelariou commonly performs the treatment during the same appointment. Before administering the injections, she will ask you to make several facial expressions using your upper face, like squinting and frowning. This will allow Dr. Papasakelariou to determine where to place your injections. Your skin is then cleansed and prepared for BOTOX. Next, Dr. Papasakelariou administers the BOTOX through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease any swelling, bruising, and discomfort. If needed, you can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable. However, most patients find it manageable. Typically, BOTOX treatments take around 10 – 15 minutes. After the treatment, you can return to your daily routine with no required recovery period.
Your botox experience
Following the BOTOX injection, patients can return to their daily activities. Although, you should avoid strenuous activity for at least a day. After your appointment, we recommend sleeping with your head elevated for one night. Also, try to avoid touching your face because this may accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The treated areas of your face may feel and look slightly bruised, swollen, or red for 2 – 3 days, but you should not develop any lasting or serious side effects. In most cases, it usually takes around 5 – 7 days before seeing the full results of BOTOX. Typically, the results last 3 – 4 months. To maintain your results, you should talk to Dr. Papasakelariou about when to schedule your next appointment at Houston Premier Dermatology.
