Using nonsurgical approaches such as Botox injections for facial folds and wrinkles

At Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, we offer a wide selection of surgical solutions for cosmetic enhancement of the face and body. However, not everyone’s situation may warrant surgical intervention. At our practice, Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot may encourage men and women to think about nonsurgical solutions to aging skin including Botox injections.

Understanding Botox

Our doctors describe Botox as a neuromodulator. This is an injection formulated with botulinum toxin type A. When Botox is injected into muscles, it can reduce their contractions and relax them for many months at a time. In doing so, patients can reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and folds that develop from muscle contractions in the face. Botox is often used to treat:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Glabellar lines
  • Forehead folds

These are areas on the upper third of the face that are impacted by muscle tightening and can cause formation of wrinkles and folds. By injecting Botox into the muscles around these areas, patients can turn back time for several months before reinjection is required to maintain the results.

Is Botox safe?

Botox has been a household name for many years. It is approved by the FDA not only for cosmetic enhancement, but for other medical conditions including cervical dystonia, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), chronic migraines, and overactive bladder. This versatile neuromodulator is highly desirable in both the medical and cosmetic field, and continues to be used today because it works! When patients have their Botox injections administered by the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, they can rest easy knowing they are in good hands.

Does Botox eliminate the need for facial plastic surgery?

Patients with mild to moderate formation of fine lines and wrinkles caused by dynamic muscle tension may be able to delay the need for a browlift or facelift for several years. More severe skin laxity and wrinkle formation may still require surgical intervention in some cases.
