I was recently invited in to visit Dr. Stephanie Teotia’s newly opened plastic surgery clinic in Dallas (located on Cedar Springs) to have a consult with her on an issue I have fallen victim to over the course of my life. Dr. Teotia’s clinic is inviting, homey and bright with decor that is modern and inspiring. The team at Dr. Teotia’s clinic is extremely knowledgable on skin care and well versed in technology and innovation as that is one of the main points of difference when visiting.
I sat down with outstanding staff members to discuss my perspiration issues and the procedures that we could take to temporarily help with this issue during the summer time. After much consideration we decided to do 50 units of Botox in my forehead. This procedure also works well for underarms if that is an area you struggle with. Botox is a drug prepared from the bacterial toxin botulin, used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, hyperhidrosis, migraines and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. Dont be fearful of that, this procedure is practically painless. Before my procedure I sat down with Dr.Teotia to discuss the effects and risks of getting Botox, she made it clear and simple for me so that I knew what to expect. She listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. We decided to apply a numbing cream to my forehead since this was the first time I have had Botox.
After we let the cream sit for 15 minutes it was go time! Very gently Dr. Teotia placed markings on my face to target my sweat glands and problem areas for an even, well covered result. After that we began the 3.2.1 process and I even had to ask Dr. Teotia if she injected it yet because I didn’t feel anything. The injections were painless and only took about 10 minutes for all fifty units. The most tender area was the middle of my forehead and it really only felt like a little bee sting that went away immediately.
After the procedure we wiped away the purple marks and I was able to walk out of the clinic and go about my day as normal. There are some small spots that lasted for about an hour but quickly reduced. The Botox takes about a week to really kick in fully but I started to see results within three days and full results now that it has been a week. As this week has gone by I noticed an extreme difference in the sweating on my face. The most perspiration I have seen is a light dampness and is barely noticeable. I cant wait to continue to see my results as the summer comes and the heat rises. If you have any questions about the Botox procedure please don’t hesitate to send me an email or direct message. I understand this can be an embarrassing topic for some but I will try to help guide you in the best possible way!
