Frequently asked questions about BOTOX in Charlotte NC
Here are some frequently asked questions about BOTOX, along with the answers.

How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX is a refined protein from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It deactivate and relax the facial muscles that produce dynamic wrinkles like frown lines and laugh lines. As facial cosmetic procedures go, it’s very quick and easy — the injection itself takes about ten minutes, and recovery is so quick people can go back to work within the hour. The effect takes a couple of days to show, but lasts for several months.

What if I don’t have that particular kind of wrinkle?
In that case, you’ll probably want to try a different procedure. Injectable fillers like RADIESSE or hyaluronic acid fillers can take care of many kinds of wrinkles. There are also laser treatments you can use.

Is it safe to get more than one treatment?
If you space them out properly, so that you don’t get the second one until the first one has worn off, then yes, it is.

If BOTOX is so safe and reliable, why do I keep seeing pictures of women who look like their faces are made out of plastic and can barely change their expression?
There are two reasons for this:
• BOTOX is not always used correctly or by experts. If you want BOTOX, make sure you get it from a professional, not some discount service that sent you an email.
• Photos of failed procedures tend to circulate more widely than photos of successful procedures.
