What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is one of the most popular and effective injectables on the market offered at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery in Louisville, KY. BOTOX is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A which causes the facial muscles to temporarily relax, allowing the skin that covers the muscles to become smoother and have fewer dynamic wrinkles. This FDA-approved wrinkle relaxer can help treat Crow's feet and other facial lines that can make you look older and tired. Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, our plastic surgeon, can meet with you to discuss your needs and decide if you're a good candidate for BOTOX. If you're not ready for a full facelift or other surgical procedures, then an injectable treatment could be the right option for you. Call our office today to set up your consultation.
What Are The Benefits Of BOTOX?
BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic injections around the world for one simple reason – results. BOTOX injections in Louisville, KY at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery offer a wide range of benefits to revitalize and rejuvenate your appearance, including:
- Provides results without surgery
- Dramatically smooths lines and wrinkles

Am I A Good Candidate for BOTOX Injections?
During the initial consultation, our surgeon will ask about your concerns and goals to help you decide if BOTOX is the best treatment for you. Ideal candidates will:
- Have deep lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions
- Have facial asymmetry, particularly around the eyebrows
- Have wrinkles that make you look sad, tired, or mad
- Are not ready or do not want a facelift
What SHould I ExPect From BOTOX Injections?
A BOTOX treatment is usually performed on the same day as your consultation in about 15 – 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. Dr. Mizuguchi will clean the treatment sites before the BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles with a thin needle. Most patients feel mild to no discomfort during the procedure, but local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if you prefer. You will be able to leave immediately after your BOTOX treatment, but you should avoid lying down, touching the injection sites, and exercising for at least 24 hours. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first 1 – 2 days.
When Will I See Results from BOTOX?
While some results will be seen immediately after the treatment, you will usually see the full results of BOTOX in 3 – 4 days as the dynamic wrinkles begin to soften and smooth. BOTOX treatments usually last 3 – 6 months, so you are encouraged to schedule your next appointment after the treatment to prevent the results from fading. Our plastic surgeon may also suggest a follow-up appointment several weeks after the initial treatment to check your progress and add more BOTOX if needed.

How many BOTOX units/injections will I likely need?
The number of BOTOX treatments administered will vary based on individual concerns and the extent of your facial wrinkles and lines. Our team can determine the correct quantity of BOTOX injections based on your desired aesthetic goals and whether you want to address Crow's feet, your forehead, or between your eyes (or some combination). To keep up with your cosmetic results, our experts might recommend getting BOTOX procedures to touch up your results every few months at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery.
Can I have BOTOX with additional nonsurgical procedures?
BOTOX treatment often pairs well with additional nonsurgical options for those who would like to address aging concerns. If you notice more extensive and pronounced lines, we could suggest administering a filler for your smoothest results. To further improve your younger-looking radiant appearance, our skilled practitioners may perform other complementary treatments, such as PRP with microneedling or facials.
Is there a variation among wrinkle relaxers and fillers?
Even though wrinkle reducers such as BOTOX Cosmetic are used to decrease facial creases by temporarily preventing muscle engagement, dermal fillers are a different collection of cosmetic injections that enhance volume in the face. Fillers are intended to volumize sunken areas and soften static wrinkles. Here at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, we can ascertain whether you would be a good candidate for additional filler (like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to complement your BOTOX outcomes.
Are there cosmetic injections that are comparable to BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a certain type of wrinkle reducer that thrives among a market of other effective solutions, including Dysport®, Jeuveau™, and XEOMIN®. All of these wrinkle relaxer options utilize type A botulinum toxin, but each one is designed uniquely to target specific challenges.
Can anyone get BOTOX injections?
BOTOX is considered safe for the majority of individuals, but there are certain groups who may not be suitable candidates for the treatment. Examples include pregnant or breastfeeding women and individuals with specific medical conditions. To ensure your safety and suitability for any cosmetic procedure, it is crucial to consult with Dr. Mizuguchi or a member of his skilled team beforehand. Their expertise will guide you in making an informed decision tailored to your specific circumstances.
Are BOTOX injections painful?
BOTOX injections are typically well-tolerated and are often likened to a mild pinprick or stinging sensation. However, the level of discomfort experienced can vary depending on an individual's pain tolerance and the specific treatment area. To help minimize potential discomfort, topical numbing creams or the application of ice packs may be utilized. These measures aim to enhance comfort during the procedure.
