People tend to start developing lines and wrinkles in the upper part of the face when they are in their mid-thirties. These lines, which are commonly referred to as worry lines, frown lines, or crow’s feet, make the individual appear older and can also make the person appear tired, or even angry. If you would like to restore the youthful appearance of your face, ask Dr. Hogan about neurotoxins like Dysport®, XEOMIN®, and BOTOX® in the Covington and Metairie, LA area.

What is a neurotoxin?
Neurotoxin injections are a minimally-invasive procedure that stops muscle movement in specific areas to relax the face and decrease the appearance of wrinkles and lines.

What is the procedure?
Neurotoxins stop the transmission of the nerve impulse to the muscles. In this way, it keeps the muscles from working for a period of time. Our plastic surgeon is knowledgeable about the anatomy of the muscles of the face and knows which muscles to treat and at what dosage.

Do the injections hurt?
Injections are delivered through very fine needles. Because of this, most patients tolerate the injections very well. If you are sensitive to needles, ask our plastic surgeon about a local anesthetic cream that can be applied one hour prior to treatment.

How long until I see results?
Results usually start becoming apparent in five to seven days. Fine winkles tend to disappear right away and deeper ones take more time. The results generally last for up to three months.
