Using Botox Injections to Smooth Away Fine Lines and Wrinkles

At United Medical and Aesthetics of Wilmington, North Carolina, men and women seeking an anti-aging solution that doesn’t require surgical intervention are excited to learn about the advantages of using Botox injections to achieve their goals. Aleta Sloan and her professional staff are here to educate patients on this simple, nonsurgical, and cost-effective way of reducing and eliminating unwanted wrinkles.

What is Botox, and How Does it Work?

Botox is formulated with a neurotoxin known as botulinum toxin type A currently used for several medical and cosmetic conditions. At United Medical and Aesthetics, we utilize it to treat dynamic wrinkles and folds found on the face and caused by muscle contractions. Some of the most effective areas in which it can be used include:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Worry lines
  • Unbalanced brows
  • Downturned mouth corners
  • Wrinkles under and around the eyes
  • Heavy eyebrows (liquid brow lift)
  • Vertical lip lines

What Can I Expect at My Botox Injection Appointment?

Botox injections are done right in the office at United Medical and Aesthetics. Aleta Sloan is an experienced injector who can administer treatments for patients every visit. She starts by thoroughly cleansing the face and applying a topical numbing cream, or anesthetic, in the treatment area to ensure patient comfort. Injections are done quickly with an ultra-fine needle to administer the medication into the specific muscles of the face creating dynamic wrinkles. Patients are given aftercare instructions when they leave the office and many return to their normal daily activities after their visit.
