Botox is safe, popular, effective

Facial lines and wrinkles deepen as we age, and BOTOX in New Orleans is a synthetic injectable that reduces the appearance of these deep lines and wrinkles. BOTOX is FDA approved and the most popular cosmetic treatment in the country. It is so safe and easy that patients can return to work or social activities immediately following the procedure.

How exactly does BOTOX work? 

BOTOX is a neuromodulator, which is a synthetic compound that, in simple terms, paralyzes muscles. Neuromodulators prevent muscle nerves from sending electrical signals to stimulate muscle movement. Because of this disruption in communication, the muscles do not contract; instead, they settle into an extended relaxed state.

What to expect during your BOTOX treatment

Taking just about ten minutes, BOTOX treatments are quick and virtually painless. Before administering BOTOX, Dr. Miller ensures that the patient is relaxed and comfortable. He uses a syringe to inject the BOTOX into the targeted facial muscles. For natural-looking results, BOTOX must be administered by someone with experience who has a detailed understanding of facial anatomy and the discernment to know how much BOTOX is needed to make the patient look great. 

Dr. Miller has a special technique that ensures that the BOTOX will distribute evenly throughout the desired area: when injecting the BOTOX, he ‘tents’ the skin with the BOTOX, forming small bumps. As the skin settles back into place, the BOTOX is evenly spread, which helps make the results look as natural and smooth as possible. The bumps disappear within minutes.

What is the recovery after BOTOX?

Because BOTOX in New Orleans is non-surgical and minimally invasive, there is no recovery time needed. Some patients may feel a mild burning sensation or a sharp prick with the needle is inserted. If desired, topical numbing cream can be applied to ease discomfort. 

Patients can resume normal life right after a session, though they should not work out or engage in strenuous physical activity for at least four hours. They should also refrain from bending or lifting things. Some experience mild swelling or redness, but this subsides in a few hours.

A naturally younger look with BOTOX

BOTOX will leave you looking refreshed and vibrant. Results are always natural-looking and seamless with the rest of the patient’s appearance. There are changes immediately after the procedure; however, it takes about a week for the muscles to relax fully.

BOTOX lasts up to six months and can be repeated several times. Dr. Miller believes that when a patient looks good, they project an air of confidence and self-assuredness that ripples into other areas of their lives.

Is BOTOX for me? 

Anyone can use BOTOX as soon as they show signs of aging. It is also beneficial as a ‘pre-juvenation’ treatment, which dramatically slows the formation of dynamic wrinkles and keeps the face looking young for an extended period. Some patients simply can’t afford to take time off work to undergo and recover from a facelift, and BOTOX is a convenient and effective alternative. Generally speaking, if you experience any of the following, BOTOX could be right for you. 

  • Laugh lines
  • Bunny lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Forehead wrinkles
