When it comes to reversing fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® injectable treatments are proven to combat the visible signs of aging and create natural-looking results without surgery.
At Southeastern Dermatology, our BOTOX® injectables guarantee precise treatment and optimal results. Contact us today at our Lumberton, North Carolina location to schedule a consultation and find out how BOTOX® can smooth and tighten your aging skin.
What is BOTOX®?
One of the most common injectable treatments worldwide, BOTOX® is derived from the botulinum toxin. Unlike dermal fillers that are injected underneath the skin, BOTOX® is a neurotoxin that is injected directly into the muscles of treated areas with a fine needle.
After it is injected, BOTOX® blocks nerve signals from reaching the facial muscles, causing temporary relaxation of treated areas and smoothing lines and wrinkles.
Why Choose BOTOX® at Southeastern Dermatology?
BOTOX® injectable treatments are available in several locations, but at Southeastern Dermatology we also provide a facial muscle analysis prior to treatment. This technique is only utilized by certain medical practices across the country, and it allows our medical team to completely relax muscle movement in some areas while only lessening movement in others.
Facial muscle analysis is a crucial step in our BOTOX® treatments as it ensures normal facial expression and movement after treatment.
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
Your candidacy for BOTOX® will be determined by our medical team during your consultation, but ideally patients seeking this treatment should:
- Be in overall good health
- Have an allergy test prior to treatment to reduce the risk of adverse reactions
- Have moderate to severe facial wrinkles
- Desire a non-surgical solution to reverse the signs of aging
- Have realistic expectations and goals for treatment
Are There Any Side Effects?
Slight bruising, swelling, redness and itching at injection sites is common but temporary. It is often advised to avoid rubbing or massaging treated areas, as the botulinum toxin can spread to other areas of the face and cause drooping or weakness. Prior to treatment, our medical team will discuss all possible side effects and complications with you.
How Long Do Results Last?
While BOTOX® creates immediate results, wrinkles and fine lines will return after the botulinum toxin wears off. Patients often report experiencing results for up to six months, although this can vary between individuals.
As part of a regular skin rejuvenation routine, BOTOX® can effectively manage the visible signs of aging. During your consultation, our medical team will advise you on how to maintain and add longevity to your younger-looking skin.
