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.
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
"I absolutely love Dr M's upbeat personality! So easy to talk to about any concerns or issues you may have, and he always gives sensible advice.. He's great with injections as well, he makes me laugh when he says he's the Botox Ninja!! I would definitely recommend him."- D.P. / Facebook / Sep 12, 2017
"Thermi Rase - Louisville, KY - I believe the procedure I had was called Thermi Rase. Dr. Mizuguchi zap the nerves above my eye brows in lieu of botox (which no longer worked for me). I had swelling for a couple of weeks, minimal bruising and it can be painful but tolerable. I LOVE the effects. Dr. M informed me that if I redo it in a year it becomes permanent."- C.F. / RealSelf / Nov 29, 2013
What to Expect
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.
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.
