Botox on Demand: No Appointment Necessary
Botox is a popular choice for wrinkle treatment. Botox injections are used to temporarily relax the muscles under the skin that cause facial wrinkles, especially frown lines between the eyebrows and on the forehead. Botox wrinkle treatment can help you look younger and more relaxed without surgery.
Coastal Empire Plastic Surgery is among the top 3% of all Botox providers nationwide. We have achieved this distinction because our patients love the way they look and return to us time and again.
Botox is most commonly used for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles including:
- “11s” between the brows
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
However, Botox can also be used for other medical purposes, such as treating chronic migraine and muscle spasms.
How Botox Works
The wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox injections are not permanent. Although results vary, they typically last four to six months and can be repeated as necessary. Botox uses a Botulinum toxin that is injected into the skin and into the muscles with a very fine needle. The toxin works to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and frown lines over time. The injection process only takes about 10 minutes, and most patients do not need anesthesia, although a topical anesthetic can be applied, if desired.
A Botox treatment requires little to no downtime. Some patients may experience mild side effects, such as slight redness or itching, but these will go away within a few days.
