BOTOX® IN BATON ROUGE, LA
Am I an ideal candidate for Botox?
BOTOX is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure to treat facial imperfections such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines between the eyes, or lines around the eyes. Generally, ideal candidates for Botox are individuals aged 18 years and above who:
- Want to get rid of unwanted lines and wrinkles on your face
- Are in good physical health
- Have thin facial skin
- Do not have any skin disorders or deep facial scars around your problem areas
- Do not have drooping eyelids
BOTOX is usually performed under no anesthesia as most patients only experience mild discomfort during the treatment. Your injection specialist will make small injections in targeted areas of the face (usually areas where there are lines and wrinkles). The treatment should take about 30-50 minutes to complete. You do not have to take time off work because this treatment can be performed over lunch hour if you live or work near the Surgeon’s Baton Rouge office. Slight swelling, bruising, and discomfort is normal after treatment but should subside after a day or so. Most patients notice a difference in their facial features after 48 hours, with improvements getting better over the next 5 days. Because Botox is not a surgical treatment, you can get back to your daily routine immediately after the surgery.
After the procedure
Following a BOTOX treatment, most patients experience only very minor discomfort. Your surgeon may ask that you avoid alcohol and strenuous exercise for at least a week. You are allowed to use ice around the injection sites if needed. In addition, your doctor may ask that you avoid some medications such as Motrin or ibuprofen for at least two days after treatment in order to reduce the downtime.
Plan your BOTOX in Baton Rouge
The cost of Botox in Baton Rouge varies greatly depending on the extensiveness of the treatment area, and the surgeon’s charges. Most of Dr. Ruston’s patients can expect to pay anywhere between $450 and $950 for this treatment. Insurance companies typically do not pay for this treatment because it is considered to be an elective cosmetic procedure.
