Botox treatments give residents a more youthful appearance 

Botox is a popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in Charlotte, NC. Patients often choose to undergo the procedure to help remove wrinkles and help them look younger. Though many people may turn to Botox to give remove wrinkles everywhere on their face, Botox is most effective in smoothing wrinkles on the forehead, eliminating crows feet, and lines around the mouth.  

 One concern people may have before having Botox is coming out of there with adverse results. When many people think about Botox, they picture overly worked on people with frozen faces. However, an experienced surgeon will know how to help you look your best, without leaving you with a frozen face.  

Botox does not offer permanent results 

Botox is a temporary procedure, and repeat injections will be needed to maintain the results. Patients should expect results to last three to six months following their first injection. One good thing about Botox is after multiple treatments the results may start to last longer requiring patients to pay less each year to keep the results.  

Botox is a quick procedure with minimal recovery time 

Many patients like the ease in which they can get Botox as it does not impact their daily schedule much. Many cosmetic procedures require a week or more for patients to stay home from work or activities to recovery. Patients getting Botox injections can come in over lunch to get them, as they typically only take ten minutes, and return to work. Patients should, however, avoid exercise for about 24 hours after the injections.  

 The cost of Botox varies by location, surgeon, and amount used 

Since patients will need to pay for this procedure out of pocket, and often more than once, many patients want to know the cost before going in. Unfortunately, there is no set cost for the procedure as it depends on many different factors. 

 One factor of the cost is the surgeon used and the location of the practice. The location may dictate which injections are available for doctors to use. The amount of Botox being injected also factors into the cost as it is often priced per unit. Patients should be careful to avoid scams of people selling discounted Botox as it often leads to poor results.
