Developed by Dr. Donna Nunnally,
The Dermatology and Aesthetic Institute (DAI) is an innovative center that combines the science of medical skin care with the art of cosmetic rejuvenation.

At DAI, skin care (prevention, treatment, and repair) is all inclusive. Dermatologists are trained to be skin experts and their education encompasses all ages and the full range of skin conditions. Visits can be a single wart, acne or psoriasis, or something more serious like mole evaluation or skin cancer screening. At these visits, we encourage everyone to discuss all aspects of their skin care concerns. We advise on skin care whether it’s just sunscreen alone, acne treatment or more complicated skin rejuvenation procedures. At DAI, we recommend yearly skin exams and during these visits we customize the skin care regimen best suited for your needs.

We are on most insurance plans for our medical patients.  Our medical dermatology clinic focuses on patients with warts, cysts, rashes, moles, eczema, acne, psoriasis and skin cancer screening and treatment as well as other medical conditions.

Dr. Nunnally is one of the most highly regarded dermatologists in Baton Rouge for her medical practice, but she also focuses on cosmetic rejuvenation.  She is very skilled with injectables such as Botox, Juvederm, Perlane, Sculptra, Restylane, Radiesse, and other fillers. 

We also offer sclerotherapy (leg vein treatment) and photodymic laser therapy for uneven skin tones and surfaces and scars.

Dr. Nunnally appreciates that everyone has choices and when patients choose DAI she feels it’s her professional responsibility to make sure the treatments offered are the best available. Dr. Nunnally and her staff deeply appreciate and value the trust and confidence of our patients. We look forward to working with each of you.

Botox Cosmetic® is commonly used              
to eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles caused by repeated muscular contractions. It is injected under the skin into the areas where the wrinkles have been caused by muscular movements over time: Frown lines, Forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet area), Lines on the neck.
Botox Cosmetic® has been used safely on millions of patients worldwide over the past 10 years. It is a quick, virtually painless, affordable procedure with reproducible results.

How does Botox Cosmetic® remove wrinkles?
Botox Cosmetic® utilizes a natural, purified protein that is injected at very low doses to reduce the contractions of the wrinkle-causing muscles. The most frequently treated areas are the groups of muscles between the eyebrows which create the frown and makes one look sad or mad. The muscles on the forehead also respond well and prevent one from having a perpetually worried look. Botox Cosmetic® is a great wrinkle minimizer for crow’s feet and those crinkly “bunny lines” on the nose. Another common use is to relax the platysma muscles in the neck in order to soften the vertical bands that start showing up with age.

While the results are dramatic, Botox Cosmetic® will not radically change your facial appearance. The muscles are simply “relaxed”, so you can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles or creases.

Fear of the Frozen Face
Dr. Nunnally’s philosophy is to produce a natural result. The trick is to make sure the muscles don’t get too relaxed. Dr. Nunnally advises opting for a moderate effect so that the ability to show emotions through facial movements is retained. We’ve all seen the “frozen face” on someone who’s been overdone. With Dr. Nunnally’s long experience and expert touch, there is no worry about looking unnatural. It’s better to come back for a little touch up to boost the effect rather than wait out the results of a heavy-handed injection.

What is Botox Cosmetic® treatment like?
Botox Cosmetic® procedures are quick, simple, and minimally invasive with no anesthesia required. Injections are administered with an ultra fine needle directly into the area being treated. Discomfort is minimal and brief, and once complete, there is usually no discomfort. Patients can usually return directly to work or normal activity.

How long does Botox Cosmetic® last?
Effects of Botox Cosmetic® appear within 7 days and generally last about 4 months.

Can I do Botox Cosmetic® along with other rejuvenating procedures?
Botox Cosmetic® is so simple, it’s very often injected at the same time as wrinkle fillers such as Juvederm®, and Perlane®, and/or a collagen stimulating agent like Sculptra®. 

Beware the Bargain Botox
A person’s appearance and health are not things to risk for the sake of a few dollars. There are numerous stories of bogus Botox being offered at impossibly low prices. The old saying, “If it sounds too good to be true…” is a good one to obey.
