When it comes to rejuvenating the skin through an injectable filler, the first product that comes to mind for most people is FDA-approved BOTOX®. As the most common filler with outstanding results, BOTOX® effectively improves the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, transforming frown lines, crow’s feet and elevating brows. Houston cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Sumpter, provides BOTOX® since it relaxes the underlying muscle activity, which causes wrinkling in the first place. Dr. Sumpter thoroughly assesses the patient’s skin to see if BOTOX® is the right option to get the desired results.
"I could not have imagined a better experience. The doctor was extremely upfront and detailed about the pricing as well as what to expect during the procedure. She even suggested we go a cheaper route on my mother in laws Botox which was refreshing to say the least not to feel like you're being up sold instead of genuinely counseled. My pain tolerance level is lower than low and she went to every length possible to make me comfortable all while being very friendly and reassuring. My results for lip injections were absolutely fantastic. My entire family now wants to make an appointment here to have theirs done! I will be back for all of my cosmetic needs and so will all my family."- C.S. / Yelp / May 27, 2016

"In a nutshell, Dr. Sumpter's skill and bedside manner put together make her the perfect plastic surgeon. I trust her like family because of how real she is. She has never told me I "need" to have anything done and has always been honest with me about what she feels I need to stay away from. She has done my botox and Juvederm injections in addition to my permanent lip implants which I could not be happier with! Also, the entire staff is not only professional and kind but also really funny!"- C.S. / Healthgrades / Jun 27, 2017
"Dr. Sumpter is the BEST choice for ANY procedure! - I will start off with a disclaimer that I am the world's worst patient. I have a panic/anxiety disorder that causes panic attacks often unwarranted so you can imagine when needles are involved how frantic it becomes. Dr. Kristi Sumpter from day 1 consultation about Juvederm injections to the day of surgery for permanent lip implants was sensitive to my anxiety and single-handedly comforted and..."- C. / RealSelf / Jun 26, 2017
What to Expect
During the initial consultation, the forehead will be assessed so that the appropriate amount of BOTOX can be determined. Wrinkle location, depth and quantity will help determine the appropriate dosage. Most patients require anywhere between 20 - 50 units of the medication. During the same in-office appointment, the forehead may be marked with ink so that during treatment it will be known where the injections will go. The patient will feel a small prick as the injection is made through the skin by a fine syringe. Discomfort is minimal,and can be controlled with cold compression.
After their BOTOX treatment, patients are able to return to their normal activities. There will be some mild swelling and redness, but this is minimal and goes away within 3-4 hours. It is important for patients not to lie down for 4 - 6 hours following their injections, and exercise should be avoided for 24 hours. Results following BOTOX are most apparent around day 5 - 7. At this time, patients will notice that their foreheads are smoother and that wrinkles will have decreased significantly. They will feel younger and feel that their appearance has a new brighter glow!
Most cosmetic surgery practices charge about $275 - $400 for one full syringe of BOTOX. In addition, it is important to note that the majority of our patients return for additional treatments about every 3-4 months.
