Botox treatments in Charlotte
BOTOX has been used to achieve cosmetic benefits since the 1970s. There are many factors that contribute to premature aging of the human face. Many factors are external, but some deficiencies can be caused by the muscles under our skin. For many dermatology patients, BOTOX® has been used to soften the effects of facial muscles on wrinkled or sagging skin with amazing results.
Charlotte residents can enjoy the benefits of BOTOX® through treatments from a board-certified dermatologist through a number of commercial labels. All of these are equally effective in diminishing or eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, particularly of the upper face, including:
- Horizontal forehead lines
- Frown lines between the brows
- Smile lines around the eyes
All of these skin issues are effectively treated by BOTOX® injections. Treatments are designed to correct existing lines, and also may prevent the development of future wrinkles. It is important to understand that you may need to be treated regularly and with consistency. In addition, BOTOX® can be used to elevate the lateral eyebrows, and even reduce folds that develop on the upper eyelids. BOTOX® injections may be applied alone; or in conjunction with other treatments that can reduce facial lines. Both men and women have benefited from BOTOX® treatment over the last several decades. Treatment results can vary based on patient age and skin condition.
How is BOTOX® applied?
Typically, BOTOX is injected into the superficial muscles of the area(s) of concern. Usually, this involves the forehead, around the eyes, and to lines around the mouth and jaw. Treatments should be considered every three to four months to improve lines and wrinkles. Injections feel like a slight pinch; as a very small needle is used to inject precise amounts of medicine into carefully selected facial muscles. Treatment will soon yield substantial softening of the lines of the upper face. Patients are still able to achieve normal facial expression involving the eyebrows and eyes. The beauty is that over time, regenerative cells will repair pre-existing lines by producing collagen to fill the structure of the skin. This means that BOTOX® treatments are both preventative and restorative.
