Botox helps diminish the wrinkles on the face 

Forehead lines can often make Charlotte, NC patients look older than they are. Luckily, there is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that can smooth and diminish certain types of wrinkles, including forehead lines.  

Botox is a procedure in which the doctor injects a solution which is made from a refined protein from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum into the muscle that is creating the wrinkle. This requires a surgeon with great skill to ensure too much is not injected, and the patient is not left with a frozen looking face.  

Botox works best on dynamic wrinkles on the face 

Though many people think Botox is able to get rid of all types of wrinkles on the face, that is not the case. Botox works to remove dynamic wrinkles which are wrinkles caused by repeated movement of the facial muscles. Examples of dynamic wrinkles are forehead lines, often referred to as frown lines, crows feet around the eyes, and laugh lines around the mouth.  

browlift done in conjunction with Botox can improve patient’s results 

Facial cosmetic procedures, including plastic surgery, all have a goal of helping a patient look younger and feel better about themselves. One way doctors help ensure patients get the results they desire is by helping to ensure one procedure does not through the patients face out of balance. To combat this, some doctors may recommend additional procedures be done to help patients get the best results possible.  

Browlifts are often done in conjunction with Botox, and Charlotte area plastic surgeon developed a technique known as the Botox Browlift. This procedure involves Botox being injected into certain areas of the face along with the doctor improving the position of the eyebrows. This can help patients have a fresh look and eliminate wrinkles that Botox may not have been able to remove.  

Botox offers a fast recovery time 

Botox is unique in that it does not require patients to take time off work and away from activities while they recover from the procedure. In fact, the procedure is done in the doctor’s office and usually takes ten minutes or less. It is recommended patients avoid strenuous activity and exercise for 24 hours after having the procedure. Some patients may have some bruising at the injection site, but it should fade quickly, and patients can see results in a few days.
