What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Available at our Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina practice, BOTOX® injections temporarily remove crow’s feet, frown lines and other types of facial wrinkles.* BOTOX® injections are both non-surgical and minimally invasive.
The BOTOX® Cosmetic solution is a substance that safely paralyzes specific muscles in the face that cause facial wrinkles. A BOTOX® injection usually lasts up to four months* and injections can be repeated as necessary when facial wrinkles reappear.
The BOTOX® Injection Procedure
At our cosmetic surgery practice in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, the BOTOX® injection procedure involves very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic in specific areas of the face. Almost no redness or swelling occurs following a BOTOX® injection. No anesthesia is required and the entire procedure takes no more than 10 minutes.
After visiting our Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina office for a BOTOX® cosmetic treatment, patients may immediately return to work and resume normal activities. The BOTOX® injection will gradually take effect in three to five days. It is important that you keep your head elevated (e.g., do not lie down or bend over) for approximately two to three hours after a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection.
The most common side effects of a BOTOX® cosmetic treatment include headache, flu-like symptoms, temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Our cosmetic surgery office in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina uses only FDA-approved BOTOX® Cosmetic brand toxin which is manufactured by Allergan.
