Asheville Botox

For Smoother Skin (and more...)

Neurotoxins are some of the most popular non-surgical injections performed because they soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is traditionally used in muscles related to expression lines around the eyes and forehead. Physicians have been expanding Botox’s use to reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and the neck.

These physician-administered injections relax facial tension by temporarily blocking nerve pulses in facial muscles. When the muscles relax, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.

The Botox injection takes about 10 to 15 minutes. On average, patients see full results within 7 to 10 days. You can resume normal activities immediately, but we suggest avoiding strenuous exercise for 24 hours. Botox’s results usually last 3 to 4 months, but results will vary from patient to patient.

Botox for Migraines

In 2010, the FDA approved Botox as a treatment for chronic migraine. Botox treatments for migraines are typically given once every three months. Treatments span a 15-month period. To perform the treatment, your doctor will inject multiple doses of the medicine in specific points along the bridge of the nose, the temples, the forehead, the back of the head, the neck, and the upper back.

Botox for Excessive Sweating

Little known fact: Botox can stop excessive sweating by temporarily blocking the secretion of the chemical that is responsible for “turning on” the body’s sweat glands. Botox can help prevent excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, head and face, and other relatively small body areas.

Dramatically Improve Your Appearance

Because our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat as we age, the facial muscles work closer to the skin surface. Smile lines, crow’s feet, the 11s become more apparent. These physician-administered injections relax facial tension and dramatically reduce wrinkles and deep lines. Trade names you may recognize are Botox, Xeomin and Dysport.

This treatment works by directly inhibiting certain muscle movements which cause wrinkles and lines in the face. Dr. Ibrahim personally administers all injections with the smallest needle possible. Most patients feel a tiny pin-prick or nothing at all.

Typical areas we treat and improve include:

  • Furrow between the eyebrows, that “eleven” set of vertical creases
  • Forehead lines (we pride ourselves in not over-treating this area)
  • Crows feet or squint lines
  • Droopy corners of the mouth
  • “Orange Peel” chins
  • Smoker lines

Lines and furrows will be softened or completely eliminated! Patients who receive treatments on a regular basis will find that they need less of the medication as time goes on, as the muscles causing the wrinkle progressively become weaker.

Typically, results are noticeable within a few days to a week. These improvements should last anywhere from 3 months to a year! Patients who schedule their treatments on a regular basis always see better results, use less product and save money over the long term.
