About Botox® in Charlotte
Botox treats wrinkles caused by facial expressions— frown lines, crow’s feet, forehead creases, and many others. Treatment is quick and easy, done in about 15 to 30 minutes, and most patients don’t require any anesthetic. There’s little to no downtime needed; most patients are back to all activity within 24 hours. Results are apparent within days and last 3 to 4 months.

How Botox Works: The Essentials
Touch your forehead right now, right between your eyebrows—chances are you’ll feel your brow muscles pushing together and a little bit downward. It’s those muscle contractions that are causing those frown lines to look the way they do. Wrinkles that get more pronounced with facial expressions are called “dynamic wrinkles.”
Botox specifically targets dynamic wrinkles. Unlike fillers, which physically sit underneath the skin, Botox works more like a medicine. Called a “neurotoxin,” it works by forcing the muscles responsible for creating frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead creases to relax, thereby diminishing the appearance of these facial wrinkles. The results typically last 3-6 months for most patients.
In addition to treating wrinkles, Botox can also help with the following:
- improvement of migraine headaches
- reducing excessive sweating
- improvement in chronic back and jaw pain
What about Dysport & Xeomin?
We offer these too! Dysport and Xeomin are alternatives to Botox . Both are FDA approved botulinum type A neurotoxins that work in a very similar fashion, but use different formulations. However, the results of each product will not necessarily look the same for any given patient—yet another reason to choose an experienced, highly knowledgable provider. Dr. Ditesheim can help you choose the best option for you at a personal consultation.
