BOTOX Cosmetic Injections | Morehead City | Jacksonville NC
Botox® treatment causes facial wrinkles to soften or disappear and can alleviate excessive sweating in other areas. Injected under controlled conditions and in a dilute form, Botox can eliminate frown lines, crow’s feet and other facial wrinkles.
Botox® is a naturally occurring injectable paralytic agent which causes specific muscles to be temporarily paralyzed and wrinkles to soften or disappear for several months. Areas that can be treated include the forehead, glabellar frown lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (the deep folds which run from the side of the nose to the corner of the mouth), lateral orbital regions (“Crows Feet”), coarse lines around the mouth and certain types of banding in the neck. Botox has also proved useful in decreasing sweating under the arm, in the palms and soles and in the groin and has also shown success in migraine relief*.
If you are sold on Botox treatments and want to see real results, Dr. Peter Klainer offers before and after Botox pictures to help you make the call for a consultation.
Botox Downtime & Discomfort:
The Botox procedure is performed in the office with essentially no recovery time required. A very fine needle is used for the few Botox injections that are usually given per muscle. Some patients report minor and temporary discomfort from the treatment. A minor burning sensation and/or a headache can sometimes follow a Botox treatment.
