BOTOX is among the world's most trusted and popular cosmetic treatments for reversing age-related wrinkles in the face. BOTOX works by paralyzing the tiny muscles responsible for the repetitive contracting that creates laugh lines, frown lines and squint lines. It is also an effective treatment for hyperhidrosis and other non-cosmetic ailments.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. Millions of Americans have turned to this safe and reliable treatment for maximum non surgical rejuvenation. It is used not only to erase wrinkles but also to combat ailments such as chronic migraine headaches, bladder incontinence and neck spasms. 

Our Charlotte NC BOTOX procedure consists of injecting the medically formulated neurotoxin to block nerve function responsible for facial contractions. The outcome is that wrinkles are prevented from forming in the face. Minuscule needles are used for injection to keep discomfort at a minimum. What’s more, this procedure is performed in a manner that focuses on specific target muscles without affecting the ones used for spontaneous expression. In other words, your natural expressions of joy, laughter and sadness remain authentic.

What are the advantages of BOTOX?

  • Brief procedure: BOTOX injections can usually be carried out in less than twenty minutes (depending on the scope of treatment). Clients can squeeze an appointment into their busy schedules with ease. 
  • No need for anesthetics: BOTOX technicians use very small needles and patients experience minimal pain during the injection process. Since there is no downtime from anesthesia, you can return to your daily routine immediately.
  • Fast results: The usual time frame in which clients see results is 1 to 3 days. Patients get the results they want almost immediately. Friends and acquaintances will complement the subtle changes right away.
  • Skin has a more youthful appearance: BOTOX smooths out fine lines and wrinkles all over the face including on the cheeks, forehead and around the eyes. This factor alone can take years off a person’s perceived age.
  • Treatments are tailored to client’s needs: The injections employed can be customized for the unique goals of the patient. Those looking for only small changes, for example, can achieve exactly what they’re looking for.
  • The process is not permanent: Those who choose this treatment can try out injections for a one time occasion or continue to maintain the changes. BOTOX’s amazing benefits only last for 3-6 months on average.

Who makes a good BOTOX candidate?

BOTOX is a treatment that is best suited for individuals that are in good physical health and without neuromuscular diseases (like M.S. or Myasthenia Gravis). Women who are pregnant, nursing or under the age of 18 should also not seek out this treatment.

Some other factors that indicate this procedure should be avoided are:

  • Weak muscles (target muscles)
  • Skin issues (particularly around the area of injection) 
  • Facial scars
  • Asymmetry of the face
  • Dense facial skin

It is important to let your doctor know about all medications and supplements you are taking before proceeding with the treatment. 

It should be noted that the improvement one experiences varies from person to person. Some may take to the treatment well while others will require another form of treatment. 

Is there any recovery for BOTOX?

As stated before, recovery from BOTOX in Charlotte NC is fairly simple. Due to the fact that no anesthesia is employed in the process, patients can get on with their day upon leaving their appointment. The only thing that needs to be avoided is strenuous activity (such as physical exercise). Lying down should also be avoided for several hours following the procedure.
