If you're not quite ready for a full facelift but still desire a remedy for lines and wrinkles in your face, specifically around the eyes and forehead, then BOTOX offered at The Face & Body Center is a highly recommended option among our team of Flowood, MS plastic surgeons. BOTOX is a purified form of botulinum toxin type A, a substance that is taken from the body and used to create a temporary relaxation of the facial muscles, allowing them to stop contracting in order to smooth the skin on top. This is an FDA-approved, very effective injectable treatment that can target deep, dynamic lines and creases and restore a youthful glow back into your face. Call our office today to find out if you're a candidate.
During the initial consultation, your surgeon will ask about your concerns and your goals to help you decide if BOTOX is the best treatment. Ideal candidates will have:
- Deep lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions
- Facial asymmetry, particularly around the eyebrows
- Wrinkles that make them look sad, tired, or mad
- A desire to avoid a surgical operation such as a facelift
"Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 06, 2018
"I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Barraza and the entire Face and Body Center staff I have encountered! They’re all extremely professional and very helpful. Dr. Barraza takes plenty of time with his patients discussing procedures and explaining all options. I truly felt like he treated me as he would his own wife/daughter. Very thankful for him and his wonderful nurses!"- B.C. / Google / Mar 12, 2019

"From beginning to end, The Face and Body Center went above and beyond my expectations! I went in for a BA consult in April of 2018 and by March 2019 I was finally ready to take the plunge and have the surgery. Dr. Barraza and his staff were amazing and they made the process so EASY!!! I was a nervous wreck the day of my surgery, but they were so calm, collected and professional that it was hard to worry! It was seriously a breeze. I can't wait to see the final results, but I know they're going to be great! I highly recommend Dr. Barraza!!!"- L.A. / Google / Mar 12, 2019

What to Expect
A BOTOX treatment is usually performed on the same day as your consultation in about 15 – 30 minutes as an outpatient procedure. The plastic surgeon will clean the treatment sites before BOTOX is injected into the facial muscles with a thin needle. Most patients feel mild to no discomfort during the procedure, but local anesthesia or numbing cream can be used if preferred. You will be able to leave immediately after your BOTOX treatment, but you should avoid lying down, touching the injection sites, and exercise for at least 24 hours. There may be temporary bruising, swelling, or redness in the first 1 – 2 days.
While some results will be seen immediately after the treatment, you will see the full results of BOTOX in 3 – 4 days as the dynamic wrinkles begin to soften and smooth. BOTOX treatments usually last 3 – 6 months, so you are encouraged to schedule your next appointment after the treatment to prevent the results from fading. Your plastic surgeon may also suggest a follow-up appointment several weeks after the initial treatment to check your progress and add more BOTOX if needed.
