Here’s what you should know about getting Botox.

Want to get younger-looking skin but a little nervous about undergoing cosmetic treatment? If this is your first time even considering cosmetic dermatology, our Charleston, SC, dermatologists understand that you may be looking for a more conservative approach such as Botox, which is minimally invasive and offers amazing results.

What is the purpose of Botox?

Botox is a cosmetic injectable that helps to relax fine lines and wrinkles of the face by injecting certain muscle groups with a purified form of Botulinum Toxin A, a neurotoxin. When administered by our qualified dermatologist here in Charleston, SC, Botox is a safe and effective way to smooth away lines and wrinkles around the forehead, eyebrows, nose, mouth, and eyes. Any wrinkles that seem to stand out when smiling or frowning are the wrinkles that will respond to Botox.

What are the benefits of Botox?

We know that many of our patients want to understand more about Botox before turning to our team here at Trident Dermatology. While Botox has helped countless men and women from their 20s-50s get younger-looking results, it isn’t right for everyone. To meet your specific esthetic goals, we will need to schedule a consultation with you first.

Here are just some of the benefits of turning to us for Botox,

  • Botox requires a skilled hand and who better to administer this treatment than a qualified doctor? Spas and home Botox parties should be avoided, as many people aren’t qualified to be able to safely administer these injections. With us you know you’re in capable hands.
  • Botox treatment is minimally invasive and easily tolerated even by more pain-sensitive patients. We can also numb the area before treatment if you’d like. It only takes a couple of minutes to administer Botox and side effects such as redness, tenderness or swelling are minimal.
  • Most patients will see results within the first 3-4 days after treatment, with the full results appearing after one week. The benefit of getting Botox is that you don’t look too tight, lifted, or “overdone” like you might be concerned about with certain cosmetic procedures. Botox provides subtle, natural, and realistic changes to your appearance.
