Botox Treatment For Fine Lines and Wrinkles At Waccamaw Dermatology

botox treatment



As we age and our bodies reduce collagen production, repeated movements in the face such as smiling, frowning, and squinting cause our skin to fine lines and creases. Botox treatment works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces muscle activity to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows, across the forehead, at the corners of the mouth, and on the chin.

If you are interested in receiving a Botox treatment, contact Waccamaw Dermatology for a consultation appointment.

How it Works

Botox is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles on the face. This temporary injection reduces underlying muscle activity between the eyebrows and around the eyes without affecting the rest of the face.

This treatment provides natural results to enhance the skin’s natural beauty. Patients may see results within 24 to 48 hours after treatment, with full results in 30 days, and can last between 4-6 months.

Botox is used for patients with moderate to severe frown lines only. If you have mild lines you may not qualify for this treatment.

Areas commonly treated include:

Wrinkles between the eyebrows, across the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), on the chin, and at the corners of the mouth.

Before receiving a Botox treatment, your past and current medical conditions will be evaluated by your dermatologist to determine if you are an eligible candidate. Several health conditions, such as muscle or nerve conditions, as well as being pregnant, may disqualify you for treatment. In addition, the risks and possible side effects of the treatment will be reviewed by your dermatologist before the procedure.

During the procedure, you shouldn’t feel major pain or discomfort, some patients experience slight pressure or pinching sensation from the injection.

A patient may experience slight side effects, but nothing major. Additionally, the recovery is quick and requires little downtime.
