BOTOX ® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription medication that, when injected into the skin, can temporarily smooth out crow’s feet or frown lines on the face by relaxing the facial muscles that are responsible for stubborn wrinkles around the mouth, eyes, forehead and elsewhere on the face. When these muscles relax, the skin becomes smoother, and wrinkles fade or disappear entirely.
For patients wishing to reverse the signs of aging associated with wrinkles and fine lines, BOTOX® offers a safe, non-surgical solution—and one that can provide noticeable results in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
BOTOX injections, available at our Thibodaux dermatology office, take only about 10 minutes to complete and require little to no downtime afterward.
The beauty of our BOTOX is that you can take years off your face, all in a short, lunchtime procedure that lets you return to your normal routine right away. Treatments are tolerable for most patients, described most like a pinching sensation, but we also have topical numbing cream available if desired.
Botox can dramatically reduce the appearance of:
- Lines on the forehead
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
Results of treatments are quick and long lasting, giving you a more youthful appearance for months to come. At our office, we have seen amazing results through BOTOX in Thibodaux, LA. Our patients express great satisfaction with their fresh, more youthful look!
Frequently Asked Questions About Botox
How does it work?
This treatment works by relaxing the muscles that cause forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet to form. This allows patients to see incredible results while maintaining movement in the face, minimizing the possibility of a “frozen” look.
How long until I see my results?
Patients typically see optimal results 10-14 days following treatment.
How long will my results last?
On average, results can be observed for four to six months following treatment. However with regular sessions, muscles can be “retrained” and results can be maintained longer.
Is there any downtime with this procedure?
Botox treatments allow patients to return to daily activities with little to no downtime.
Are there any side effects associated with Botox?
Some patients may experience some swelling, bruising and redness at the injection site. These side effects are typically brief and subside on their own.
