Will my Botox results be better from an MD injector?

Botox can smooth wrinkles and give you natural looking results, but a lot depends on the experience and technique of the injector. Depending on the State in which you live, botox may be administered by a registered nurse, certified nurse assistant, and of course a board certified plastic surgeon, or other medical doctor. But will botox results be better from an MD injector?

The botox injector you choose should be well-qualified and trained, and be able to expertly administer botox. The type of results you get from botox depends onthis, and there are several reasons why an MD injector is likely to give you better results.

  • Administering botox is a specialized procedure that requires intimate knowledge of the facial muscles, and other parts of the anatomy. Since your MD has this expertise they are better able to ensure that botox is injected at the right location, and in the correct quantity.


  • Although botox has proven to be a very safe injectable, complications can arise, and if they do, an MD is in a much better position to handle the situation.


  • Your MD is more likely to have advanced training in the use f botox and other injectables. When carrying out the procedure, they are also likely to have a more artistic eye in recognizing what looks more natural.

When it comes to botox injections, experience counts, and board certified plastic surgeon Kyle Song, MD, of Song Plastic Surgery, has experience and training in a range of aesthetic procedures. Cosmetic treatment is an integral part of the practice at Song Plastic Surgery, so you can be assured that you are in good hands with Dr. Song. Call (949) 701-4454 today to schedule an appointment.

How many botox sessions do I need to take care of excessive sweating?


Excessive sweatingor hyperhidrosis, especially in the underarms and palms, can make some people extremely self-conscious. People who sweat more than normal are often anxious about finding a remedy for this embarrassing problem. When they do find a solution like botox, they often ask, how many sessions do I need to take care of excessive sweating?

Before botox became a top anti-aging drug, it was being used for other medical conditions including the treatment of chronic migraines, and eye muscle disorders. However,it was also discovered that botox can turn off your sweat glands. Botox is approved by the FDA for treatment of severe underarm sweating, in patients that have been unable to find alternative relief.

Botox and excessive sweating
Botox will not cure severe sweating, but it will help those who suffer from it to control the condition effectively. When injected, botox (botulinum toxin) interrupts the signals that the nerves normally send to the sweat glands, and this prevents the sweat glands from working as normal.

Although botox is particularly effective for underarm sweating, it can also be used to curb sweating on the hands and feet. The effects of botox are temporary and last for 6 to 9 months on average.

It typically takes 2 treatment sessions with botox to stop excessive sweating. However, the full effects of treatment usually take about 2 weeks.

If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, botox injections can significantly improve your quality of life. So if you’d like to find out more about the use of botox for excessive sweating, contact Rocheford Plastic Surgery, Woodbury, MN.  If you are in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, please call (651) 739-1100 today, to schedule a consultation with Dr. Heather Rocheford.

How does Laser Lipo body contouring work?

does Laser Lipo work

Body contouring was traditionally done with liposuction, but thanks to the marvels of laser technology,laser lipo and other innovative body contouring techniques are now available. Laser lipo works quickly and there is minimal downtime when compared to traditional liposuction. But how does laser lipo work?

Laser Lipo

Laser lipo is a non-invasive procedure that is used to trim unwanted fat and restructure the body. It targets and reshapes specific regions of the body where you have stubborn fat that is difficult to lose. This makes it very helpful for sculpting areas such as the thighs, arms, flanks, and abdomen. Patients generally notice results after the first session.

How does laser lipo work

The area to be treated is generally filled with a tumescent solution, which shrinks the blood vessels, numbs the area, and makes it easier to target the fat cells. The fiber-optic laser is inserted via tiny incisions. The laser emits different wavelengths of energy, and the heat melts the fat, causing the fat cells to deflate. The fatty deposits are released into the body and later flushed out by the lymphatic system.

The surrounding tissues are not affected during the procedure, therefore bruising is minimal, and recovery takes place in a day or so. Laser lipo also helps to stimulate the production of collagen, and this has the long term effect of tightening the skin.

Laser lipo is available at the Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery in Lanham, MD. Beaux also serves the Washington, DC, and greater Baltimore areas. So if you would like to try laser lipo for a more beautiful you, call 301-880-7022 today.
