What is Botox?

The most popular medical aesthetic treatment on the market is Botox which involves injecting a purified protein into specific facial muscles to temporarily relax and soften them in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The FDA first approved Botox in 2002 for the treatment of frown lines (aka 11’s) between the eyebrows, and it has grown to become the preeminent treatment when attempting to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the upper face.

Currently, Botox is the only treatment approved to treat three different areas on the face that, include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet).

What can I expect at a Botox Treatment?

Botox is a quick and straightforward procedure.  The treatment is performed in one of our offices located in the Raleigh, NC, area, and the procedure itself takes just a few minutes.   This makes Botox a convenient option for people who want a quick treatment to improve their appearance without taking a lot of time out of their busy schedules. 

Once the areas of concern are identified, one of our amazing injectors will treat that area with a precise dosage of Botox to get you the look you want.  Our providers have years of experience treating individuals just like you with natural results. 

Is Botox safe?

Botox is one of the most popular treatments in the world, and its safety record is well established.  Generally speaking, most patients experience some slight redness and swelling at the injection site, but these symptoms go away very quickly. 

Despite these transient effects, Botox remains one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world today.  This is due, in part, to its effectiveness in reducing the appearance of wrinkles but also to its affordability and accessibility.  In recent years, Botox has also become increasingly popular among younger people, who are using it as a preventative measure to keep their skin looking youthful for longer.

Botox is considered safe for most people as long as it is administered by a trained professional like the injectors at Blue Ridge Dermatology.

Who is a candidate for Botox?

Anyone who is concerned about the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on their face is a candidate for Botox.  Botox is primarily used to smooth out lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), on the forehead, and between the eyebrows (frown lines). 

Another reason to consider Botox is that it is an affordable option for people who are looking to improve their appearance.  Compared to other cosmetic treatments, such as plastic surgery, Botox is relatively inexpensive, and its effects are temporary, so patients can decide whether they want to continue with the treatment or not.
