Botox helps patients get a more youthful appearance 

Botox information can help potential Charlotte, NC patients decide whether or not Botox is a good option for them. Most people equate the word Botox with removing wrinkles, and often picture celebrities who are known for getting too much Botox and having a face that does not move and looks frozen. However, when done correctly, by an experienced doctor, Botox can help remove dynamic wrinkles, which helps patients look younger.  

Dynamic wrinkles refer to wrinkles that are caused by the use of facial muscles. Thus, Botox is typically best at removing wrinkles from the forehead, crows feet around the eyes, and laugh and frown lines around the mouth. Deeper wrinkles would require a different procedure to remove them.  

 Prior to surgery patients should get Botox information so they know how the procedure works 

Learning Botox information, such as how the procedure works, is a major step in helping decide if Botox is for you. The physician will be able to explain the process in more detail and answer any questions you have during a consultation. 

 Botox injections typically only take about ten minutes to complete. The doctor will inject the Botox directly into the muscle, which relaxes it and removes the wrinkle. Since it is a quick procedure, patients will not need to take time off work or away from activities. Patients will, however, need to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after.  

 Patients should see the results of their injection within a few days. Botox is not a permanent solution and generally lasts three to six months. However, patients who have had repeated injections may start to have longer lasting results.  

The cost is dependent on many different factors 

While gathering Botox information, many patients want to know what they should expect to spend on Botox. Unfortunately, there is no set cost for the procedure. The cost is dependent upon many different factors including the location of the medical office where the procedure is being done. The amount that will be used is also a determining factor in the cost since Botox is often sold by the unit. Patients should also anticipate paying for it a few times as additional injections will be needed to maintain the look.
