When patients come to the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg seeking a solution to aging skin, our team of professionals have a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical options to choose from. Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot of Hattiesburg, MS may suggest the benefits of Botox injections.
What is Botox?
Most of our patients have heard of Botox, but most don’t know exactly how Botox works. Botox is a neuromodulator that is made with botulinum toxin type A. This medication is FDA approved for not only cosmetic use, but for conditions such as chronic headaches and migraines, excessive sweating, and even overactive bladder. The medication works by reducing contractions of certain muscles. When injected into muscles of the face, dynamic wrinkles will smooth. These include glabellar lines, forehead folds, and crow’s feet. While not a long-term option, results from Botox can last up to six months before reinjection is required.
Who is a candidate for Botox?
Most adult men and women over the age of 30 are proper candidates for Botox injections as an anti-aging solution. Botox is one of many injectables available in our office, and can be combined with dermal fillers for a complete and natural-looking transformation. These cosmetic injectables can turn back time and allow patients to feel confident in their appearance. Fine lines, wrinkles, and folds will diminish with Botox injections, and the overall signs of aging can be slowed.
What should I expect during my Botox appointment?
Botox is injected into the areas of concern right in our office by one of our trained professionals. In just minutes, injections are completed, and patients can return to the rest of their day without any interruption. Results are seen within a week, and continue for several months.
