Botox in Wilmington NC
Today, Botox Cosmetic is used by men and women to treat stubborn frown lines—between the eyebrows, crow’s feet and other fine lines on the forehead and the lips –that tend to accumulate over time as a result of years of smiling and squinting.
By reducing the contractions and relaxing the underlying muscles of the face, patients see noticeable results in their non-surgical Botox treatment with very little downtime.
Botox is an excellent, non-surgical option that reduces the effects of aging and helps regain a more youthful appearance. At Wilmington Dermatology Center we are advocates of natural looking results.
During a typical procedure, we evaluate which areas need to be treated based on your facial expressions and lines created. The area is cleaned and prepped with numbing cream if requested, and a small needle is then used at the injection sites. A visit typically lasts only 10 minutes long, and our patients easily tolerate the minor pinch sensation at the injection sites. Muscle control that creates your wrinkles begin to diminish in five to seven days, and full correction occurs in 14 days. There is no real downtime associated with a Botox treatment, although you may see slight redness at the injection site immediately after treatment that diminishes very quickly. The results of Botox (or competitive neurotoxin brands such as Dysport or Xeomin) can last anywhere from three to four months.
Botox and other brand name toxins are priced based on the number of units used on the individual, and how much you will require is based on the areas you need treated and overall severity of wrinkles.
Our providers can give you a quote based on a free consultation. Some practices quote based on an overall area, but Wilmington Dermatology Center bases cost on what is actually used. There is no question you are getting the best value. A note: Dysport uses a different unit of measurement, so it’s important that you are aware if you are being priced based on cost per unit.
Botox Cosmetic developed by Allergan is also eligible for credit towards Brilliant Distinctions, a free program in which you receive credit towards purchases and earn money saving coupons on future treatments. Brilliant Distinctions is a great way to save on your favorite procedures and SkinMedica products at no cost to you. Think of it as credit card miles for your anti-aging treatments.
