Frequently asked questions about BOTOX procedure in Charlotte

Frequently asked questions about BOTOX

Here are some frequently asked questions about BOTOX in Charlotte NC:


Why is BOTOX called a “lunchtime procedure?”

The injection itself takes so little time, and recovery is so quick, that you can go through the whole thing over your lunch break and be back at work on time. That said, it would probably be a good idea to avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours after the injection.


Will BOTOX get rid of all my wrinkles?

Unfortunately, no. BOTOX is specifically geared towards dynamic wrinkles, the kind that form on the face from overuse of facial muscles such as the brow and cheek muscles. Frown lines and laugh lines are examples of these. Other kinds of wrinkles can be dealt with using fillers.


I had BOTOX injections this morning. How soon can I expect to see results?

You should notice a change by tomorrow or the day after.


I had BOTOX injections six months ago, but they wore off. Is it safe to do it again?

At this point, yes.


If BOTOX is so good, why do we see so many pictures of stars who’ve had it done and look awful?

Because pictures like that tend to circulate. And there is some risk invovled, if the person giving you BOTOX doesn’t know what he or she is doing.


Can BOTOX be used to stop wrinkles from forming in the first place?

Yes, but it takes a very experienced facial plastic surgeon with a great deal of skill.


Is it a good idea to get BOTOX if you’re pregnant or nursing?
