By now, you probably have some idea of what Botox is and what it does. It’s a drug made from a neurotoxin that’s used to cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle. Since Botox treatments are quick and relatively painless, patients use them as a means to combat fine lines and wrinkles. Dr. Finical, a member of our team of board certified Charlotte plastic surgeons, recently completed a Botox treatment in Charlotte on one of our patients who is thrilled with her results. Below is a botox before and after just to show how effective botox can be for lines, crows feet and more.
Here you’ll notice the patient’s original problem areas. Before treatment, “worry lines” began to develop on her forehead as well as over the bridge of her nose. You can also see vertical fine lines that developed around the glabellar region (in between the eyebrows).
Two Days Post Treatment
Less than 48 hours after treatment, the patient noticed a smoother, fuller appearance in her original problem areas. This is a normal process of Botox treatments, as the toxin typically requires anywhere between 24-72 hours to take effect.
Full Week After Treatment
A full week later, and Dr. Finical’s Botox treatment resulted in a flawless appearance. The patient is making the same facial expressions as her pre-treatment image, except now the fine lines in her forehead, eyebrow and nose area are “erased” giving her face a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
This botox before and after highlights just one of several successful Botox treatments our team completes for patients of Charlotte Plastic Surgery. This procedure only requires a few minutes on average and no anesthesia is involved, which means our patients can come in, receive treatment, and be back to their day in no time!
Common Botox Treatment Areas
On average, the following areas are the most popular for Botox treatments:
- Worry lines (forehead)
- Frown lines (in between the eyebrows)
- Crow’s feet (under the eyes)
