Patients who come to our Baton Rouge plastic surgery office to receive BOTOX (manufactured under the name Botulinum Toxin Type A) injections come back regularly because they love this product so much. Once it is introduced into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, BOTOX relaxes facial wrinkles in the forehead region and around the eyes (crow’s feet). Part of BOTOX's appeal is that great results are achieved with no surgery needed. Baton Rouge plastic surgeon, Dr. Erick Sanchez, personally injects his patients with a BOTOX dose, which will last for three to four months. It is one of the most trusted and well-known wrinkle refinement products on the market today. Millions of happy patients across the nation getting BOTOX injections have smoother, softer and younger looking skin.

"OUTSTANDING PLASTIC SURGEON!!! I did a lot of research before I decided on Dr. Sanchez. His great reviews was what made me decide to make an appointment with him and he was even more amazing than his reviews. I was very nervous about having my procedure but he and his staff put me at ease from my very first appointment. My experience of having my tummy tuck surgery with him could have not been better. I am so pleased with the results so far. Every chance I get I tell people how great he and his staff are. If you’re considering having any procedures done, make an appointment with Dr. Sanchez and you won’t need to get a second opinion or price. His staff was fantastic and made sure I had everything I needed before and after my surgery. They will make you feel comfortable no matter how self conscious you may be and he will allow you to decide if it’s right for you and will be kind, caring and courteous. Best decision I ever made! Thank you Dr. Sanchez!!! Wendy"- W.M. / Google / Oct 31, 2018

What to Expect
During the initial consultation, the forehead will be assessed so that the appropriate amount of BOTOX can be determined. Wrinkle location, depth and quantity will help determine the appropriate dosage. Most patients require anywhere between 1-3 syringes of the medication. During the same in-office appointment, the forehead will be marked with ink so that during treatment it will be known where the injections will go. The patient will feel a small prick as the injection is made through the skin by a fine syringe. Discomfort is minimal, but it is controlled with cold compression.
After their BOTOX treatment, patients are able to return to their normal activities. There will be some mild swelling and redness, but this is minimal and goes away within 3-4 hours. It is important for patients to sleep upright the first night following their injections, and exercise should be avoided for 24 hours. Results following BOTOX are most apparent around day 5-7. At this time, patients will notice that their foreheads are smoother and that wrinkles will have decreased significantly. They will feel younger and feel that their appearance has a new brighter glow!
Most plastic surgery practices charge about $350-$400 for one full syringe of BOTOX. Some patients will require multiple syringes depending on the severity of wrinkles, so the price will vary by patient. In addition, it is important to note that the majority of our patients return for additional treatments about every 3-4 months.
