Botox in Greensboro, NC
Over time, you may notice the appearance of deep, dynamic facial wrinkles. These wrinkles can make you look older than you feel, but fortunately, there are non-surgical treatments that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. One of the most popular and widely used treatments is Botox, an injectable neuromodulator drug that can substantially soften those deep facial wrinkles and restore a youthful appearance.
At Carolina Age Management Institute of Greensboro, N.C., we are pleased to offer a wide spectrum of injectable medications, offering plenty of options for patients who seek anti-aging effects. We invite you to join us for a consultation, where we will be happy to tell you more about the benefits of Botox in Greensboro, NC.
What is Botox?
Botox is simply the trade name for botulinum toxin A, a naturally occurring substance that can be purified and carefully injected into target treatment areas. When administered by a skilled professional, Botox relaxes underlying facial muscles, blocking the signals that cause those muscles to contract. By relaxing these muscles, Botox can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including frown lines, laugh lines, and other creases that are caused by underlying muscle contracture. As such, Botox can provide a smoother complexion and an altogether more youthful facial appearance.
