Botox® in Cary and Fayetteville, NC
Botox® is one of the most well-known names in injectable treatments, and for good reason. This effective treatment instantly relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles in the face to deliver a more youthful appearance. Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics offers this and other injectable treatments to the residents of Cape Fear, Lumberton, Raleigh, Cary and the surrounding areas of North Carolina.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe animation lines, which occur from the eyes up. At Fayetteville Plastic Surgery & Cape Fear Aesthetics, we inject Botox® into three areas: the brow area, crow’s feet and forehead. Botox® relaxes the dominant facial muscles that cause the “11s” to form by blocking nerve impulses that trigger wrinkle-causing muscle contractions, creating a smooth and improved appearance.
What Can Botox® Be Used For?
In addition to diminishing the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead, Botox® has a number of other practical uses. We also offer Botox® for gummy smiles. In this case, Botox® helps relax the lips to reduce the amount of gums shown when you smile. We also offer Botox® as a solution for migraines, as well as hyperhidrosis—more commonly known as excessive underarm sweating. Finally, we can help patients achieve a slimmer contour in their face by carefully injecting Botox® into the masseter muscle, which reaches from the lower jawbone to the cheekbones.
How is the Botox® Procedure Performed?
Botox® is a simple 10-minute treatment consisting of a few tiny injections. The injector will decide where to administer the Botox® by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your face. He or she will let you ice the area with a cold pack before and after for comfort. After your injection, you will be scheduled for a two-week follow-up.
When Will I Notice Results from Botox®?
Within four days, you will start to notice the results, and they will last up to four months. Botox® is injected in small doses directly into the muscles that cause the moderate to severe lines; however, it will not affect your ability to laugh, smile or otherwise express your emotions.
Will My Wrinkles Come Back Worse After Botox®?
About three or four months after you’ve had an injection with Botox®, your muscles will slowly start functioning again. Once the Botox® has completely worn off, your wrinkles will be back again. Also, over time, you’ll start to lose fat and collagen and elasticity, so you may need to add other treatments to address future aging. However, Botox® does not make your wrinkles worse than before. Think of Botox® as a maintenance treatment that you’ll need every three to four months if you want to keep the wrinkles relaxed.
