Erase Smile Lines and Face Wrinkles with Botox

Have smile lines turned your smile upside down? Not to worry – Aiken have you covered! Smiling is a great thing to do, but over time, those repeated facial movements can cause fine lines, deep lines and even wrinkles – but you don’t have to live unhappily in your skin. With Botox, miracles can happen to soften those lines and restore a sense of youth. Botox for eye wrinkles is also a great treatment method to get rid of those stubborn indentations that creep up over time.

Below, we discuss the many benefits of Botox treatment, and discuss who might benefit the most from Botox treatment. You will find a wealth of information to determine whether Botox treatment may be the right course for you.

What is Botox Treatment?

Botox, more scientifically known as Botulinum Toxin, is a protein that is injected into the facial muscles, fine lines, and wrinkles to cause a state of paralysis and ease the furrows, wrinkles, and other unwanted imperfections. Botox for eye wrinkles when smiling, Botox frown lines and Botox for upper lip lines are all wonderful treatment options to deal with lines and wrinkles in those areas.

Who is Botox Treatment for?

If you’re wondering, “Can you get Botox for smile lines?” or, whether or not Botox for under eye wrinkles works, the answer is a resounding yes! Botox works wonderfully for all of the problem areas you may experience on your face. From forehead wrinkles, to crows feet, to undereye lines, wrinkles and smile or frown lines, Botox can make a world of difference. 

If you find yourself in the early stages of aging, or even at the very onset, or in later stages of the aging process, Aiken can help. Anyone over the age of 18 is a great candidate for Botox, generally speaking. The only people who shouldn’t receive Botox injections are those who are allergic to Botox or any component of dairy protein, who are pregnant or nursing, and anyone who has any sort of neurological impairment or disease should refrain from Botox treatment.

What Do Botox Injections Feel Like?

Botox injections are almost completely painless – and they can be completely pain free, if you have a well-trained provider like ours here at Aiken. A skilled provider will apply numbing cream which probably contains lidocaine, and the injection may only feel like a small pinching sensation if anything at all. You may experience a slight burning sensation as the medication is being administered, but most patients report the small pinch or burn was well worth the experience and after-effects of the Botox treatment. A small pinch is a small price to pay for big results!

How Much do Botox Injections Cost?

Botox injections vary in cost based upon the location in which you receive treatment, the area affected and how much product is required, and the amount of treatments in your treatment plan. Most people do need repeat injections every so often, but treatment is based on a case-by-case basis. The average cost of Botox aiken SC is around $725 per treatment – but again, this is just an estimate and pricing varies on an individual basis.


How long do Botox results last?

Botox results typically last anywhere from 2-4 months. It’s said that people receiving their first course of treatment with Botox will not have long-lasting effects, but those who undergo their second treatment and beyond notice a lengthier treatment overall. 

Should I use Botox for smile lines?

You can absolutely use Botox in smile lines! In fact, aside from fillers, Botox is one of the most common and best treatment protocols for smile lines.

Do Botox injections permanently remove frown lines?

There is no permanent solution to remove frown lines, unfortunately, but you will notice a marked improvement with Botox for frown lines. The reason being is, the muscles in that area will become relaxed, and it will give the appearance of smoother skin in that area.

How many treatments will I require?

The amount of Botox treatment and the amount of units needed will vary greatly depending on the treatment area, severity of your lines and wrinkles, and based upon the treatment plan you develop with your practitioner.

What are the side effects of Botox treatment?

Side effects of Botox treatment are generally mild if any at all. Some people will experience redness or swelling in the treatment area, headaches, difficulty swallowing, over-relaxed muscles in the areas surrounding the treatment area, drooping eyelids, dry eyes, or an overall feeling of malaise. If your symptoms are severe, call your provider or head to an emergency department right away. For mild side effects, they should pass within 24 up to 48 hours. Usually, side effects won’t last that long.
