Botox Injections in Cary
Originally used for lazy eye and wry neck, Botox has been around for over a century and used successfully in more than over 11 million patients (based on estimates from data supplied by the Allergan Corporation). Botox is a product that contains botulinum toxin Type A. Cosmetic forms of botulinum toxin are used to inactivate the muscles that cause wrinkles in problem areas such as crow’s feet, frown lines and horizontal forehead creases that are usually caused by repeated muscle contraction associated with facial expressions. Botox injections will not only smooth certain types of facial wrinkles, but the treatment will also slow the process of further wrinkle formation.
Botox is administered by Dr. Won at our one of our Preston Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery practices. First, you will discuss any of your areas of concern with Dr. Won. Treatment with Botox involves a few simple injections using a thin needle and causes minimal pain. You may need several injections in a small area.
You may experience some slight swelling or bruising at the area of injection; this can easily be covered with makeup, and reduced using pressure and taking antihistamines.
While Dr. Won will request you sit up for a minute or two before moving on, there is no downtime after Botox injections, and you can return to work or your normal activities right away. The results of Botox take 3-4 days to fully appear. Regular treatments every 3-6 months will be needed to maintain your results.
