Is your face smooth when it is at rest but lined and wrinkled as soon as you smile, grimace or frown? If so, you may have what is known as dynamic wrinkles, which are wrinkles that only form when your face is moving. Sometimes called expression lines, these lines or wrinkles are generally close to the surface and are easy to treat with BOTOX injections in Charlotte, NC, at the Carolinas Eye Center and Med Spa.
Dynamic wrinkles are not something that you have to live with any longer. One simple treatment time can take care of them for a minimum of three months, although many of our patients experience even longer-lasting results, especially after they have been receiving regular treatments for years. Our typically follow-up treatment takes only 15 minutes or less, and you can easily fit it in between your other daily tasks.
However, your first BOTOX treatment in Charlotte, NC, may take somewhat longer than this because we will want to chat with you about your skincare goals as well as your past medical and surgical history. We will also take a close look at your facial skin and any other areas of skin that you want to change. This will help us determine whether BOTOX truly is the best treatment for you or if you would benefit more from a different option.
BOTOX, made from the Clostridium botulinum toxin, is nearly always the best choice for dynamic wrinkles. This is because it paralyzes the tiny muscles located beneath the skin that cause these wrinkles to form. When used in tiny, precise doses, BOTOX can produce a beautifully natural look without any “frozen” appearance.
We will ensure that your appointment is perfectly comfortable. You will be in one of our private treatment rooms. During the treatment, you will rest comfortably and should only feel slight pinching sensations during the injections. We use a very small needle injected in several spots throughout the treatment area to give the most natural-looking results. Although you may have a bit of redness in the treated area, this should quickly fade in the next hour or two and you will have no problem continuing on with your regular activities, such as going back to work. In fact, this is one of the best treatments for busy career people who do not have the time to take off work for extensive surgical treatments or long recovery times.
BOTOX can be used nearly anywhere that you have fine lines and wrinkles on your face. BOTOX is truly an incredible treatment option that can eliminate many signs of aging on the skin, most specifically expression lines, while also eliminating the need for more invasive treatments.
