Wrinkles are caused by a lack of collagen in the skin, cellular changes in the body, and exposure to the sun and environment. Botox injections are a way to temporarily freeze the muscles in your face to prevent them from creating crow’s feet and frown lines in the skin.
With a very fine needle, Botox is injected into the facial muscles that cause the wrinkles in areas you want to target. If you are looking to target frown lines, the injections will be placed in two different muscles in the forehead. Within a few days of treatment, you will begin to see results that will last up to four months.
Botox Side Effects
While many patients report only feeling a pinch at the initial injection, there may be other side effects that occur afterward. Most side effects of Botox in Cary, NC, are temporary and should subside after a few hours or days.
- Dry mouth
- Neck pain
- Vision difficulty
- Localized pain
