As we age, our bodies begin to show signs of wear and tear, specifically as wrinkles form on the face and the skin loses its elasticity. Despite the fact that this is a natural process, it may leave you feeling less attractive than you would like, and, subsequently seeking a solution. Fortunately, Botox® is here to help. Wondering what to expect during your Botox® appointment? Allow us to clear the air.
About Botox® in Huntersville, NC
One of the most trusted injectables in the business, Botox® is a quick and convenient way to revive the look of your face. The solution, which is made of botulinum toxin, is injected into the treatment area in order to relax the dynamic facial muscles that are causing your wrinkles.
Although many fear that Botox® will leave them with a frozen face, the truth is that, when done properly, this is not at all an issue. Rest assured, Dr. Briggs E. Cook, Jr. has the breadth and depth of experience with Botox® to ensure that your results look and feel natural.
Your Appointment Is Hassle-Free
Before your Botox® treatment, you may elect to have a topical anesthetic. However, many of our patients find the procedure relatively painless, with only a slight pinching during the injection.
Once the solution is injected, it will begin working immediately, smoothing out the lines and reducing the appearance of your wrinkles. You may experience some slight redness or swelling, which can be addressed with an ice pack, and will quickly resolve on its own.
Maintenance is Easy
In many cases, our patients are able to enjoy the look of their new face for approximately three months, at which point a maintenance treatment will help maintain your youthful appearance. Over time, as the muscles are re-trained, you may find you need maintenance appointments on a less frequent basis.
