Elevate by Ochsner Health is proud to offer Botox® to those looking to improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.
» How does it work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, we will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes—called the orbicularis oculi muscles.
» Will I look overdone?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your provider about the results you want from treatment.
» Does the treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
» How long does treatment take?
The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery—it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.
When it comes to facial aesthetics, we all have different concerns. Elevate by Ochsner Health offers a wide range of treatment options that can be customized to your individual needs.
» Fill And Smooth Your Parentheses Lines
Over time, your skin loses elasticity. This natural process, plus genetics and environmental factors like sun exposure, can cause moderate to severe lines and folds such as parentheses, corner, and marionette lines to form around the nose and mouth. JUVÉDERM® can help fill these lines and give you natural-looking results that last.
Designed to add volume beneath the skin’s surface to lift and contour the cheek area.
