Here’s what you should know about getting Botox.
Who doesn’t want to look younger? Maybe you’re noticing that forehead wrinkles are sneaking up or that there is now permanent vertical lines between your eyebrows where you’ve furled and frowned. Wrinkles happen, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t something you can do about it. You can reduce and even eliminate the appearance of these dynamic wrinkles and lines through Botox, the number one cosmetic treatment offered by our Charleston, SC, cosmetic dermatologists.
Treatment Only Takes About 10-15 Minutes
Getting Botox injections is incredibly fast and simple. We have people coming in before or after work, and even on their lunch breaks, to get Botox. When you come into our Charleston, SC, practice for your Botox treatment, it will only take a few minutes to administer the needles. The needles are also so thin that most people don’t experience more than a slight pinch or sting; however, we can numb the area ahead of time, but it’s important to note that it will take about 20-30 minutes for the numbing ointment to kick in before administering Botox.
There is No Downtime
Another reason so many people turn to Botox as an anti-aging treatment is that there is no recovery time associated with Botox. You can easily get Botox and go back to your daily routine. While you may experience some slight redness, tenderness or swelling of the area, it shouldn’t affect running errands or your typical workday.
Botox is Great for Dynamic Wrinkles
You know the lines and wrinkles that seem to pop when you smile, squint or frown? These lines and wrinkles are the ones that Botox is excellent for smoothing away. On the other hand, Botox is not used to treat wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity. Botox is great for treating those “11s” between eyebrows, as well as forehead wrinkles and lines around the nose and mouth.
You Can Maintain Results as Long as You Want
Botox isn’t a one-and-done type of treatment. While results last anywhere from 3-6 months, that doesn’t mean you can’t ever get Botox again. Many of our Charleston, SC, patients come in every six months for maintenance Botox treatments.
