Injectables and Skin Care
Conveniently located to serve Baton Rouge
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments like soft tissue fillers and Botox are a great option for restoring the youthful appearance of your face. When performed by a skilled experienced professional like board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bourgeois, these treatment options offer beautiful and natural-looking results.
Minimally Invasive Treatments
Soft tissue fillers, Botox, and quality skin care are wonderful adjuncts to surgical treatments of the face. I carry a variety of soft tissue fillers (Juvaderm™, Voluma™, Vollure™, Volbella™, and Belotero™) that correct mild to moderate contour issues and wrinkles.
The Benefits of Fillers and Botox
It is important to understand the benefits and limits to each product and where on the face they should be used. With these products, I can resurface fine lines and wrinkles, improve soft tissue deficiencies, plump lips, and correct many of the signs of facial aging. Frequent areas for treatment are the nasolabial folds, temples, cheeks, lips, and tear troughs of the lower eyelid. Results with fillers are immediate and have minimal to no downtime.
Botox™ Cosmetic is a wonderful product for the prevention and treatment of facial wrinkles. It is FDA approved for use in the glabella (between brows) and crow’s feet (lateral eye), but can additionally be used to improve wrinkles of the forehead and neck. Results last for approximately 3 months but improve with continued treatments.
What to Expect After Your Injectable Treatment
Your cosmetic injectable treatment in Baton Rouge will be performed in the office. Patients may drive themselves home. I advise no heavy exercise, facial massage, or bending over the day of your treatment. Most other normal activities can be resumed the same day as your treatment.
Some patients may notice some mild swelling, redness, and bruising. These issues will subside over the next day or so. Aspirin and ibuprofen should be avoided for 5-7 days before treatment and should not resume until the day following treatment. Other than that, there are no restrictions.
All injections are performed by Dr. Bourgeois. I understand facial anatomy and aging, can tailor treatments to individual patient’s goals, and am always working to provide the best results for my patients.
Cosmetic Injectable Treatment Cost
The cost of your cosmetic injectable treatment in Baton Rouge will depend on the type of injectable used, the amount of product needed, and other variables that Dr. Bourgeois can go over when you come in for your consultation.
I am also pleased to offer ZO Skin Health products. ZO Skin Health is a medical grade skin care line created by world-renowned Dermatologist, Dr. Zein Obagi. My patients are interested in quality skin care tailored to their needs to maintain skin health over time. I have products tailored for skin maintenance, pigmentation issues, aging skin, and acne prone skin. I also carry products aimed at sun protection for prevention of environmental damage. Each patient’s face has a completely unique set of needs and challenges.
