Botox in Charlotte, NC
What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX is an injectable product that’s FDA-approved to reduce the signs of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Although it was approved for cosmetic use in 2002, the active ingredient in BOTOX—a purified protein—has been trusted by the medical community for many years and in many different capacities.
Because this protein blocks nerve signals from the brain to affected muscles, it is especially effective in smoothing wrinkles caused by movement including:
- crow’s feet
- frown lines
- vertical lines that form between your eyebrows.
At SkinSpirit Charlotte, we also love BOTOX for lip flips, which is a great way to achieve fuller looking lips. as an alternative to lip filler. Struggling with excess sweating? BOTOX can also be used to treat Hyperhidrosis, or excess sweating.
Outside of cosmetic applications, BOTOX can also be effective in addressing migraines, eyelid spasms, and symptoms of an overactive bladder.
How It Works
Rather than physically adding volume to wrinkles the way dermal fillers do, neuromodulators like BOTOX and Dysport prevent you from making the facial expressions that cause these wrinkles in the first place. That doesn’t mean you’ll look frozen! At SkinSpirit Charlotte, our expert injectors receive advanced training on both BOTOX and Dysport, ensuring a smoother complexion, without interfering with your ability to make facial expressions.
The SkinSpirit Experience
Our BOTOX injectors in Charlotte are among the most experienced in the country, and we always put comfort and care first.
Your BOTOX treatment will begin with a free consultation, where you’ll have the chance to talk through your concerns and goals with your provider. Your injector will then ask you to make facial expressions to see precisely where your top concerns are located, so that they can tailor your treatment to you.
Typically injections can be performed on the same day as your consultation. We’ll get started by prepping your skin with a facial cleansing before getting started. Using a very fine needle, your provider will administer your Botox through a series of quick injections that typically feels like a small pinch – the whole thing is over in 30 minutes or less!
While you may experience some minor injection site reactions, such as bruising, bleeding, or itching, this is all normal and generally fades fairly quickly, so you can get back to your day as soon as you’d like.
Keep in mind that it does take some time for your best results to develop — typically about a week. From there, they can last between three and six months, depending on your own unique physiology and where on your face you had injections.
