BOTOX is used to treat certain muscular conditions and remove wrinkles and fine lines. It is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment and takes only about 10 minutes, with the results lasting up to four months. With BOTOX, you can smooth the lines and wrinkles while keeping the experiences that made them.
Our BOTOX patients have shared their positive experiences with us, and we encourage you to listen to their stories so that you can learn more about BOTOX and how it can help you achieve the smoother, younger-looking appearance you’ve always wanted.
BOTOX is our most performed and popular skin rejuvenation treatment at The Facial Center—and for good reason. When injected into muscles properly, BOTOX subtly reduces wrinkles, frown lines, and furrows while allowing you to retain natural and expressive facial movement. Many people receive BOTOX to help with drooping eyelids, and it can also be used to treat muscle spasms or involuntary muscle contractions. The Facial Center’s expert injectors consistently deliver the natural-looking skin tightening results you desire helping our clients achieve a more youthful appearance.
At The Facial Center, we not only employ expert injectors to administer BOTOX, but we also employ a national trainer for Allergan Inc., Dr. Jarrod Chapman. Dr. Chapman is one of the most sought-after providers of BOTOX in the area; he trains our staff at The Facial Center, and he travels the country teaching other medical professionals proper injection techniques.
All of our BOTOX providers in Charleston and Hurricane, WV, are considered expert injectors, trained in the most advanced injection techniques to achieve the most natural-looking results. The Facial Center clients will be seen by Dr. Chapman, one of our many ABOMS board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons, or our registered cosmetic nurse for their injections of BOTOX.
So who better to trust for the most natural-looking results than one of the most experienced providers of BOTOX? The Facial Center—experience you can trust.
BOTOX injections are very simple to perform and usually take less than five minutes per facial area. Using a tiny micro-needle, a minuscule amount of an FDA-approved serum containing botulinum toxin type A is injected very precisely into select facial muscles.
Because the needle used for the BOTOX injection is very thin, normally no sedation or local anesthetic is necessary. Comfort is enhanced by applying a topical anesthetic or an ice pack a few minutes before the treatment.
Normal daily activities can be resumed immediately after BOTOX injections as long as an upright position is maintained. However, you should not work out for several hours after your treatment. External pressure should not be applied to the area treated with BOTOX for about four or five hours as well.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours up to two weeks to notice the full positive results. Keep in mind that BOTOX simply relaxes the muscles and therefore makes wrinkles less prominent. Deeper creases may still be there, but they won’t be as evident. Finer lines will seem to disappear completely.
Although results vary, most individuals can expect significant wrinkle reduction for about four months following the BOTOX injections. To maintain the desired wrinkle reduction effects, BOTOX injections can and should be repeated about every three or four months. The result tends to be longer-lasting with subsequent treatments.
Following a BOTOX treatment, some patients may experience mild bruising at the injection site, or a mild headache. These conditions are temporary and gradually subside within a day or two. Please discuss with your provider if symptoms last longer than 24 hours.
The ingredients in BOTOX, when used for cosmetic treatments, are botulinum toxin type A, the active ingredient, and human albumin, which is a protein found in human blood plasma.
