About BOTOX

To diminish the effects of aging and to avoid lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from occurring on the forehead and upper face, Walters Plastic Surgery in New Orleans and Metairie, LA is pleased to offer BOTOX to our patients. This facial rejuvenation treatment offers amazing results and is popular among both women and men. This injectable can make a dramatic improvement to dynamic facial wrinkles, which are the result of 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 movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these static lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is carefully injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly administered by plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters between the brows where the number "11" appears, 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 in a nonsurgical way. BOTOX is often thought of as 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 a facelift surgery. This delivers a more impactful result and it is meant to last years. Dr. Jules Walters offers various facelifts, eyelid lifts, and brow lifts as effective options.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX injectable treatments are completed as an outpatient procedure right at Walters Plastic Surgery. If it is your first time to visit 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. You will be asked to make a few expressions using your upper face, like frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to determine where the injections are best placed. The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected under the skin using a fine needle, followed with 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 – 15 minutes, after which you may get back to to your usual day with no required recovery period.

What to Expect

Following the BOTOX injection, you are allowed to return to your usual schedule, although strenuous activities like exercise should be postponed for a minimum of a day. You will be advised to sleep with your head propped up for at least one night and to 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 – 4 months. You can talk to your BOTOX injector about when to make a follow-up appointment to refresh your results.
