Deep Plane Facelift and Minituck

Deep Plane Facelift and Minituck-Dr.Freeman Makeover

Botox treatments

Ophthalmologists began using Botox in the late 1980s to treat optic muscle disorders.  Since the FDA approved Botox for treating frown lines and wrinkles in 2002, the use of Botox has increased in popularity and it is currently one of the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures done annually.  It is also approved to treat a variety of medical conditions, but its primary use is still in cosmetic treatments for the face.

How the procedure works

Botox works differently from fillers which add volume to depressions in the skin. Instead, Botox blocks the release of the chemical which causes the muscle contractions which result in wrinkles.  Botox relaxes the facial’s muscles so they cannot contract.  Botox treatments should only be performed by a licensed physician such as Dr. M. Sean Freeman, one of Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeons.  Dr. Freeman can perform Botox injections at this state-of-the-art clinic, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery located in Charlotte NC.  There is typically very little, if any discomfort and you should see visible results within a few days and these results last from three to six months.

The procedure

Any type of cosmetic injection requires a precise knowledge of facial anatomy.  This is especially true for Botox.  Dr. Freeman is considered one of the best facial plastic surgeons in Charlotte NC, as well as the entire Southeast and possesses extensive experience and knowledge of both of these cosmetic treatments.  Dr. Freeman is dual board-certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by the American Board of Otolaryngology, which certifies physicians in head and neck surgery.

Botox injections can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines. Call Dr. Freeman’s clinic in Charlotte NC, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery to schedule your Botox appointment.
