At Carolinas Med Spa and Laser Care, we are proud to offer our clients BOTOXⓇ treatments that can be used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines around the upper portion of the face. BOTOXⓇ is the most popular cosmetic surgery treatment, with more than six million treatments administered each year, and is expected to grow in popularity.
Call our office or contact us online to schedule a consultation to discover the many benefits that BOTOXⓇ has to offer you! Take the step toward a younger-looking, more confident you with BOTOXⓇ injections, the relatively inexpensive solution to visible signs of aging.
What is it Like to Get BOTOXⓇ?
The procedure is quick and you should experience very minimal pain. Just a few injections are required in the treatment areas, which only takes a few minutes and requires no anesthetic. It usually takes a few days for results to begin to show, and at two weeks your face will be at its most youthful. Results last around four months before they begin to gradually wear off. Side effects generally include slight bruising and swelling at the injection site, which usually dissipate before even leaving the clinic.
How Does BOTOXⓇ Work?
BOTOXⓇ is used cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily relaxing muscles. When dosage and frequency of treatment are considered, BOTOXⓇ has been proven to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein.
BOTOXⓇ is injected in extremely small concentrations and works by blocking signals traveling from the nerve cells to the muscles, effectively creating a controlled weakening of the muscles. Continued injections of BOTOXⓇ may be able to “train” the injected areas to be relatively wrinkle free because the less the muscles are used the smoother and more relaxed they become.
BOTOXⓇ can be used for a variety of treatments including:
- Glabellar lines (frown lines between the eyebrows)
- Canthal lines (crow’s feet)
- Forehead lines
