Botox® in Asheville
A Little Brow Lift May Lift Your Spirits Too
If you look unhappy and frowning when you look in the mirror, it can actually affect your mood. The FDA is looking at Botox as an alternative treatment for depression with significantly fewer side effects than prescription medications. In a recent study by Finzi and Dr. Norman E. Rosenthal, from Georgetown School of Psychiatry, 52 percent of the participants obtained relief from moderate to severe depression with Botox injections compared to only 15% of the participants receiving a placebo.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the number one non-surgical cosmetic procedure of its kind and the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines. It has been FDA-approved since 2002, and it is the fastest-growing aesthetic procedure in the world. You can safely soften wrinkles in just one 20-minute treatment. Try it for a special occasion or make it part of your pampering process on a regular basis!
Safety of Procedure
Both Botox and Dysport are FDA-approved and are quite safe. Both of them may result in minimal side effects that fade quickly.
For optimal safety, it is important that the patient is approved for treatment during a consultation with an experienced professional. In addition, the procedure must be performed by a qualified and skilled professional using genuine Botox/Dysport products.
IDEAL CANDIDATES FOR BOTOX AND DYSPORT
Patients with fine facial wrinkles are excellent candidates for Botox and Dysport procedures. Botox and Dysport treatments are suitable for shallow wrinkles like glabellar lines, horizontal forehead lines, chin wrinkles, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
The best candidates have realistic goals. Candidates must not be allergic to any of the ingredients in these neuromodulator products. Candidates must not be pregnant, breastfeeding, or taking medications for muscle spasms.
The Botox procedure is approved for patients 18 years old and above. Most experts agree that patients in their mid-to-late 20s and early 30s are ideal candidates for Botox and Dysport since this is when most people develop visible wrinkles that require treatment.
Botox can be used preventatively to avoid premature aging, or it can be used to smooth away existing fine wrinkles and to ensure they do not deepen.
During your initial consultation in Asheville, we will examine the extent of your facial wrinkles. We will listen to your skin-rejuvenation goals and ask about your skincare routine. We will evaluate your medical records to avoid complications.
We will explain the details of your treatment plan, including the preparation, the procedure, aftercare, results, and a cost estimate. We will encourage you to ask questions regarding these details so we can address them prior to finalizing your treatment schedule.
The Botox or Dysport injection procedure can last 20 minutes or less depending on the issues being treated. The treatment areas will be cleansed before marking the injection sites. A topical numbing cream may be applied for the convenience of the patient.
The injections will be delivered to the treatment areas, and the markings will then be removed.
Patients can get back to their regular activities with little to no recovery time. Mild pain, swelling, bruising, or redness may be experienced after the procedure. Aftercare instructions will be provided to the patient.
Results appear in several days and will last for three to four months. Follow-up treatments will be necessary to maintain the results.
