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.

The Role of Vanquish Towards Non-Invasive Body Contouring

There is an array of advanced technologies promising to emulsify, freeze, tame or damage trouble spots with respect to fat cells. But out of these, the most popular treatment today is the Vanquish Radio-frequency Fat Reduction Treatment.

Since a lot of people are intimidated by other invasive surgical treatments such as abdominoplasty or liposuction, Vanquish fat reduction treatment has become their first choice.

The Marked Advantages of Vanquish Radio-frequency Fat Reduction Treatment

Following are some of the many distinguishing benefits of Vanquish treatment.

  • No downtime
  • Results are obvious just after a single session
  • Non- invasive/Non-surgical safe treatment
  • Large body areas can be treated at once
  • No or a few common side-effects
  • Results are much more lasting than any other treatment of an invasive nature
  • The sessions are highly comfortable and absolutely pain-free

The Procedure

During the treatment session, the patient rests in a comfortable position while the Vanquish panel is exactly directed at the targeted area of the body. The device’s sensors then measure the impedance instantaneously and also regulate the energy delivery.

The warmth that is felt by the client during the procedure is similar to being exposed to a heating pad. Since the nature of this non-invasive treatment is absolutely pain-free, the clients usually spend these 30 minutes of the treatment session, relaxing, taking a nap or even listening to music or reading a book.

The good part about having this non-surgical treatment is that the patient can immediately get back to their daily routine. However, clients are advised to take care of their health by drinking a lot of water before and after the non-surgical treatment, as well as continuing exercise or staying active by jogging or walking.

Not to mention, this effective treatment has outperformed many traditional surgical treatments and we are expected to see a lot of progress in this field.
