Minimally Invasive Treatments and Skin Care Baton Rouge
The physicians at Associates in Plastic Surgery offer wonderful adjuncts to surgical treatments of the face including soft tissue fillers, Botox, and quality skin care. We carry a variety of soft tissue fillers (Juvaderm™, Voluma™, Vollure™, Volbella™, and Belotero™) that correct mild to moderate contour issues and wrinkles. It is important to understand the benefits and limits to each product and where on the face they should be used. With these products, we are able to resurface 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.
These procedures are performed in the office. Patients may drive themselves home. We advise no heavy exercise, facial massage, or bending over the day of your treatment. 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 the physicians of Associates in Plastic Surgery. We understand facial anatomy and aging, can tailor treatments to individual patient’s goals, and are always working to provide the best results for our patients
We are also pleased to offer that we carry a full line of ZO Skin Health products. ZO Skin Health is a medical grade skin care line created by world-renowned Dermatologist, Dr. Zein Obagi.

We have products tailored for skin maintenance, pigmentation issues, aging skin, and acne prone skin. We 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.
