Is it Time for BOTOX?

More and more, both men and women are turning to BOTOX as a solution to achieve their aesthetic goals. Here are a few reasons clients at the Antony Institute have decided to turn to BOTOX in Raleigh & Cary, NC for skin smoothing.

  • Maintaining a Youthful Edge: In today's competitive society, maintaining a youthful appearance can be essential for personal and professional success. BOTOX offers a proactive approach, warding off the development of wrinkles and lines. As BOTOX relaxes wrinkle-causing facial muscles, it can act as a preventative measure if applied earlier in life – stopping fine lines before they begin. 
  • Smoothing Away the Years: BOTOX offers a noninvasive solution for addressing common signs of aging, allowing individuals to take control of their appearance. Whether softening forehead lines, minimizing crow's feet, or smoothing frown lines, BOTOX injections at Antony Institute for Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics produce subtle results—not overdone.
  • Boosting Confidence, Inside and Out: BOTOX can enhance self-confidence and self-esteem. After BOTOX treatments, patients feel more comfortable and confident, approaching life's challenges with renewed vigor.

What is BOTOX?

BOTOX, short for botulinum toxin, is a purified protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is commonly used in cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscle motions that crease the skin. When administered by a skilled practitioner like Dr. Anu Antony, BOTOX can effectively smooth unwanted facial wrinkles.

Key Target Areas for BOTOX Treatment

At Antony Institute, we recognize that each individual has unique aesthetic concerns. That's why we tailor our BOTOX treatments to address your specific goals. Some of the areas where BOTOX can work wonders include the following:

Upper Face

  • Frown Lines: Soften the vertical lines between your eyebrows when you frown or concentrate.
  • Forehead Lines: Smooth away horizontal lines that form across the forehead when you raise your eyebrows.
  • Bunny Lines: Reduce wrinkles and creases on the top of the nose.

Eye Area

  • Crow's Feet: Minimize the fine lines and wrinkles that radiate from the corners of your eyes when you smile or squint.
  • Eyebrows/Hooded Eyes: Lift and rejuvenate drooping eyebrows, opening the eyes and creating a more alert, youthful look.

Lower Face

  • Lipstick Lines: Soften vertical lines around the lips, achieving a smoother lip contour that enhances your smile.
  • Chin Dimples: Relax the muscles in the chin area, preventing dimpling and creating a smoother and more refined chin profile.
  • Jawline: Define and sculpt a heavier or square jawline and horizontal neck bands.

Your Personalized Treatment

At the Antony Institute, your personalized BOTOX treatment will begin by carefully assessing your facial anatomy and discussing your desired outcome. Using a fine needle, Dr. Antony will inject small doses of BOTOX into the targeted facial areas, causing a gradual relaxation of the muscles. 

The procedure is quick and virtually painless, with most patients experiencing only mild irritation or a slight stinging sensation. A topical numbing agent may be applied to the treated area to prevent discomfort. BOTOX is an outpatient procedure and does not require a long recovery time. Most patients return to work or routine activities the same day. 

What Can BOTOX Do for Me?

Following your BOTOX treatment, you can expect to see visible improvements in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles within a few days. As the muscles relax, your skin will appear smoother and more youthful, giving you a refreshed and revitalized look.

Long Lasting Results

On average, most patients enjoy the effects of BOTOX for three to six months before noticing a gradual return of muscle movement and the appearance of wrinkles. The longevity of BOTOX results depends on various factors, including the dosage administered, your muscle activity, and your metabolism. Regular maintenance treatments will keep you looking your best.
