Face Lift and BotoxIn Charlotte NC, when you want advice or information on using Botox the best surgeon to consult is Dr. Sean Freeman. Dr. Freeman is considered one of the best facial plastic surgeon in the Southeast. He has more than twenty years’ experience improving the appearance of his patients. Dr. Freeman uses both cosmetic and non-cosmetic procedures to provide beautiful results for each and every patient.

Botox for facial rejuvenation

In April 2002, the FDA approved Botox to treat moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. Today, Dr. Freeman uses Botox injections to relax the facial muscles creating wrinkles. This results in a lessening of the appearance of laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead wrinkles. While Botox is a recognized treatment for facial wrinkles and frown lines, it is truly effective only in the hands of a skilled physician.

Known as an innovator, Dr. Freeman uses Botox in a special technique he invented called a Botox browlift. Dr. Freeman uses this technique to improve both the appearance of facial wrinkles and the position of the eyebrows. This provides an overall rejuvenation in the facial appearance of his patients.

How it works

Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles. Once injected, Botox prevents the muscles from contracting and the wrinkles soften and relax. There is no usually no anesthesia required for Botox injections since it uses such a fine needle. This needle is placed into specific muscles and once injected the Botox causes the muscles to relax and not contract. It usually takes three to seven days to fully take effect and you should avoid alcohol for at least one week before treatment. Dr. Freeman also recommends you stop taking anti-inflammatories and aspirin at least two weeks before Botox treatment. This will help reduce bruising. The effects from a Botox treatment will generally last between four to six weeks and as the muscle action starts to return, you will need to be treated again to sustain the results. With each treatment, your muscles are trained to relax and eventually the wrinkles and lines may appear less severe. In Charlotte NC, Dr. Freeman is the recognized expert in administering Botox for the most spectacular results.
