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

"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 2019
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.
