Led by double board-certified surgeon Dr. Adam Augenstein, Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte stands as the premier luxury cosmetic procedure center in Charlotte. Dr. Augenstein cordially invites you to book a consultation to determine if our Charlotte Botox treatments are the perfect fit for you.
Effectively Targets Facial Muscles
Botox is designed to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, helping you maintain a youthful, radiant appearance. Derived from the botulinum toxin, Botox is a purified protein that temporarily relaxes targeted facial muscles, effectively reducing the appearance of crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead creases. Administered by skilled professionals, this non-surgical procedure offers a subtle yet noticeable transformation that harmonizes with your refined lifestyle.
Botox — A Charlotte Favorite
Botox injections are a favorite among our clients in Charlotte, NC, who want to smooth forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet without surgery or downtime. Botox is the most popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in the country, with millions of procedures performed in the United States each year.
Women and men over the age of 18 who are in good overall physical and mental health and who have realistic expectations about what Botox can achieve are often good candidates. Women who are pregnant or nursing should delay scheduling treatment, and all patients will need to provide a complete medical history, including any current medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
People who may not benefit from Botox include individuals with drooping eyelids and those with skin disorders near the potential injection sites. However, these patients can often benefit from another product or procedure, such as an eyelid lift or dermal fillers, and should consult with Dr. Augenstein to discuss alternative options. The best way to determine whether you can benefit from Botox is to schedule a consultation to discuss your goals and develop a treatment plan.
Botox is derived from a purified form of a botulinum toxin protein that targets the repeated muscle contractions that cause frown lines and crow’s feet, such as squinting and frowning. By preventing these muscles from contracting, your skin looks smoother, and wrinkles appear less pronounced. Dr. Augenstein specifically studied Botox out of a desire and commitment to meet his patients’ needs, both surgically and non-surgically. As a dual-board certified plastic surgeon with training dedicated to the head and neck, Dr. Augenstein’s extensive background in plastic and reconstructive surgery gives him valuable insight into a variety of injection strategies for those seeking natural-looking results from Botox.
His in-depth knowledge of the head and neck allows him to look at each Botox treatment comprehensively, considering important factors like the skin, muscles, and underlying bone structure. Each plays a crucial role in facial aesthetics, and Dr. Augenstein’s knowledge of their individual characteristics, as well as their interplay, gives him an advantage in placing injections strategically so you experience optimal results.
Curated, Especially for You
Dr. Augenstein understands that looking good doesn’t mean looking overdone, and he takes a conservative approach to create soft, natural results with Botox. He works with you to create a treatment plan that helps you look well-rested and refreshed, but most importantly, it will leave you looking like you–only better.
A Personalized Experience
At our practice in Charlotte Botox treatments often take less than half an hour and can even be performed during a lunch break. Prior to the appointment, you will meet with a medical professional to assess your face and skin and discuss your goals. This ensures you receive the best possible treatment plan to meet your needs.
A very thin needle is used to administer Botox. For patients who are concerned about discomfort, we offer a topical anesthetic to help numb the injection sites. However, most patients compare the injection to a pinching sensation, which is very tolerable. Results are usually visible within a few days of treatment and can last three months or more. Many people choose to receive treatments regularly to maintain their natural results.
Make a Statement
After receiving Botox Charlotte patients will begin to see the amazing impact in just one to three days. As your facial skin relaxes and bounces back, those wrinkles will either vanish or become much less visible. The fantastic benefits of Botox treatment usually last for up to four months, and most people are thrilled with their outcomes!
Shh, it’s our little secret.
One of the reasons Botox remains the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment in the country is that it has no downtime. After Botox Charlotte patients should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area, but otherwise, they can immediately resume all normal activities and exercise. Just as importantly, you can resume socializing without worrying that friends will recognize you’ve had Botox. You will look refreshed but not unnaturally different. Any additional aftercare instructions will be discussed during the appointment.Request a Consultation
When administered by a trained and experienced specialist, Botox is among the safest cosmetic procedures in the country, with millions of women and men opting to receive this treatment each year in the United States alone. A very small percentage of people may experience slight bruising or drooping, or swelling of the eyelid, although such effects are minor and typically disappear within weeks. We encourage you to share any concerns prior to your treatment and discuss any risks before the procedure.
