BOTOX®

About BOTOX

To diminish the effects of aging and to avoid lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from occurring on the forehead and upper face, the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa in New Orleans and Metairie, LA, is pleased to offer BOTOX to our patients. This facial rejuvenation treatment provides amazing results and is popular among both women and men. This injectable can dramatically improve dynamic facial wrinkles resulting from expressions and movement with the contracting muscles on the forehead. These facial lines go away when the face is relaxed, but dynamic creases can still remain. This muscle relaxer is a purified strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily freezes the underlying tissue and muscle movements. To diminish the appearance of these static lines and wrinkles, plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters carefully injects BOTOX to relax and soften the skin. He most commonly administers this specific injection between the brows (for the “11s”), around the eyes (crow’s feet), and throughout the forehead.

Ideal Candidates

BOTOX injections are used for patients who hope to diminish and soften the visible look of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face nonsurgically. BOTOX is often considered a preventative anti-aging treatment even if static wrinkles have not yet formed—keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It is an effective noninvasive solution if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It is also a solution for crow’s feet around the eyes. If you experience more severe and deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. Also, if you are over the age of 50 with moderate to severe skin laxity, you may be a candidate for facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and lasts years. The MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa offers various facelifts, eyelid lifts, and brow lifts as effective options.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure at the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa. If it is your first time visiting our office in New Orleans or Metairie, LA, to get BOTOX, we commonly perform the treatment within the same day as your initial consultation with Dr. Walters. We will ask you to make a few expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, and so on, to help us to determine the best location for your injections. Your face will be prepared, and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed by a cool compress to help reduce bruising, swelling, and discomfort. You can ask for a numbing cream to help make the procedure more comfortable, but it usually is not needed. BOTOX treatments typically take around 10 to 15 minutes, after which you may get back to your usual day with no required recovery period.

What To Expect

Following BOTOX injections, you can return to your usual schedule, although you should postpone strenuous activities like exercise for a minimum of a day. You should sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and avoid touching your face, which can accidentally spread the BOTOX to other areas. The injected sections of your face can become red, bruised, or swollen for a couple of days, but you should not have any long-lasting or serious side effects. In the majority of cases, it often takes around one week before the final results of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 to 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make a follow-up appointment to refresh your results.
