BOTOX Mount Pleasant SC
Natural aging and a lifetime of involuntary facial muscle actions contribute to the formation of wrinkles, creases and lines that can make you look angry, tired or older than you feel. Although aging may be inevitable, We have an unprecedented arsenal of gentle, non-surgical treatments that combat the most noticeable and frustrating facial imperfections. BOTOX® has become the most commonly performed non-surgical treatments to address these types of issues.
BOTOX Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the cosmetic reduction of forehead lines and has successfully been used to treat a wide range of other conditions, such as wrinkles on the neck and gummy smiles.
BOTOX is a purified version of Botulinum Toxin Type A. It has been proven to reduce the effects of facial aging, such as crow’s feet, frown lines and other complexion issues. When injected into the skin, BOTOX temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX is designed to soften wrinkles caused by the muscular activity of your face. Your facial muscles move when you make certain expressions and over time, this muscle movement creates wrinkles where the skin folds together. BOTOX works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles. When the injected muscle is unable to contract, wrinkles relax and soften.
Using a tiny needle, we inject BOTOX into the muscles below the targeted area. The procedure is quick and requires no surgery or downtime. The injections themselves are relatively painless. Some patients experience minor discomfort at the injection site, but this is only a temporary effect that
