Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top facial plastic surgeon believes it can effectively fight off early signs of aging. Dr. Freeman performs Botox injections to relax the facial muscles which create wrinkles. This lessens the appearance of laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. It is the number one cosmetic procedure performed in the United States. While many people wonder if it really works, Dr. Freeman believes it is a great solution for many of his patients. There are certain situations where it can really make a difference.

Botox is extremely effective as an anti-aging treatment

Combatting crow’s feet
Many of us have begun to notice the spider web of lines around our eyes, especially when we smile. While many consider smile lines to be a sign that they’ve led a happy life, others want to fight them off before they become deeply embedded crow’s feet. Botox is very effective against crow’s feet, relaxing the muscles which form smile lines. It may take several months of Botox treatments to completely eradicate the lines and each individual’s situation is different.

Fight frown lines
Botox is very good against those pesky lines that form on your forehead when you frown. Many of us wrinkle our forehead unconsciously when we listen or concentrate. Eventually, these wrinkles become permanent. This is where it can help. It relaxes and freezes the muscles in the forehead prohibiting wrinkles from happening. It works on both horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles. When you are considering Botox in the forehead, always, always get the injections done by a doctor. Botox in the forehead is very susceptible to that unnatural, plastic look if not done properly.

Botox cautions
Botox has been around for many years and is considered extremely safe when procedures are performed by doctors trained in its use. Approved the FDA for cosmetic and medical procedures, Botox is a very effective skin rejuvenation procedure. Botox is best for individuals who have dynamic wrinkles on their face. These are those deep, permanent wrinkles formed by repeated facial muscle movement. Dr. Freeman recommends Botox for lines and wrinkles around the eyes and on the forehead. If you have wrinkles on the lower part of your face, he may recommend another facial rejuvenation treatment such as an injectable filler like RADIESSE or Restylane.

The procedure
Dr. Freeman performs all Botox procedures at his state-of-the-art clinic in Charlotte NC, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery. He will meet with each patient for an initial consultation to determine the best treatments for each patient’s individual situation. If Botox is the selected procedure, Dr. Freeman will inject a small amount of Botox into the muscles creating the problem. In effect, Botox deactivates those muscles producing wrinkles, dramatically reducing wrinkle lines. For more information or to schedule your Botox treatment, call Dr. Freeman’s Charlotte NC clinic today.
