BOTOX® is an extremely popular treatment for individuals in Charlotte, NC who want to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on their face. It has been a lifeline for individuals who feel like their changing appearance is robbing them of their vitality and robbing them of who they are.
The BOTOX® solution is designed to interfere with signals between your nerves and the facial muscles that are being treated. As a result, these facial muscles become relaxed and are no longer able to fully contract. Since these muscles don’t contract as much, the fine lines and wrinkles that they would have created are no longer there.
The results can last for months at a time. However, after multiple months have passed, the results begin to fade away. So, if you like the results you’re getting from the treatment, you can simply return to our office in Charlotte, NC for follow-up treatments.
To be a good candidate for BOTOX®, you should be in overall good health. A good candidate also understands what they want their results to be. Your health is something that you’re going to need to discuss at length with our practitioner prior to having the treatments. We’re going to ask you some questions about your health history, about your medical history, as well as about medications that you have used in the past. Based on this information, we will determine whether or not BOTOX® is the most effective treatment for what you are dealing with.
Another factor in getting the most out of your treatments is realizing that there are limits to what BOTOX® can do. It will not produce the same results you will see from a facelift or from a neck lift. And it is not a dermal filler, so it’s not going to add volume to your skin. BOTOX® is specifically designed to help individuals looking to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. This is what it does, and it does it very well.
These are just a few of the things to consider when asking yourself if you’re a good candidate for BOTOX® at Carolinas Eye Center & Med Spa in Charlotte, NC. Contact us today to schedule a consultation to find out for sure!
