Are you missing the youthful skin you used to have? Aging takes a toll on your body, and your face can reflect that. If you have fine lines and wrinkles, Botox can help. Dr. Paul Kostuchenko and the providers at Westgate Dermatology and Laser Center, offer Botox in Winston Salem and Kernersville, NC, to rejuvenate your skin.

What is Botox Treatment?

Botox is an injectable treatment made from a neurotoxin that works on the muscles and their movement. The muscles make lines and wrinkles pronounced as they contract. When they are relaxed, the area looks smooth. Botox can be used to treat crow’s feet, furrows between the eyebrows, and fine lines.

What is it Like To Get Botox in Winston Salem and Kernersville, NC?

Your provider will administer treatment with a very thin needle. The number of injections will depend on the area being treated. You should feel minimal pain.  Treatment only takes around 15 minutes, making Botox one of the fastest cosmetic procedures. There is also no downtime, so you can get back to your routine immediately.

Most people do not experience any side effects, but slight swelling or redness in the injection site can happen. Your final results will be visible within 7-10 days. You will see the fine lines and wrinkles significantly reduced, and your skin will look smoother and younger. Botox treatments are temporary, and your results will last for up to 3-4 months before you can come into our offices for refresher treatments to maintain your new look.
