Botox has been one of the most important developments in cosmetic dermatology in recent years. Thousands of satisfied patients in Charlotte can speak to the power and effectiveness of the results produced with this injectable, non-surgical procedure. Botox is the only FDA-approved procedure that can temporarily relieve or reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines.
Many women and men want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the face. These are some of the first signs of aging to appear, and Botox treatment can both minimize their appearance and help to prevent them from deepening. As a non-surgical procedure, Botox requires only minutes of your time and can be easily scheduled during a break from work.
Botox can help people to improve and rejuvenate their facial appearance in various areas, including:
In addition to its cosmetic effects, Botox can also be used under the arms or elsewhere to limit excessive and unwanted sweating. Botox can help people to enhance their natural beauty and rejuvenate their appearance by targeting the muscles in the eyes and face that have developed wrinkles through years of contraction. When Botox is injected into the targeted area, it can block this type of muscle contraction, smoothing lines and presenting a younger look.

Adults of any age who want to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, especially in the forehead or eye area, are excellent candidates for Botox treatment. While results vary between patients, people can enjoy natural, smooth results with targeted injections performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon and Botox injector.
When you visit Queen City Plastic Surgery for Botox, you can feel confident that your injections will be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Haque will perform an examination and make specific recommendations for the number of injections that can help you to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Dr. Haque will directly inject the muscles in the targeted area with Botox, temporarily freezing them and stopping the contractions that lead to lines and wrinkles. Treatment of crow’s feet typically requires three injections that allow the wrinkled skin to smooth and display a rejuvenated appearance. In order to reduce forehead lines, injections in muscles such as the procerus and corrugators relieve skin pressure and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Dr. Haque will make specific recommendations for the number of units to be used in order to help you achieve your goal for the amount of movement desired. In some cases, he may recommend a conservative approach to treatment for first-time Botox users who would then have the opportunity to return for a follow-up visit several weeks later.
“Everyone was absolutely wonderful – from the time I walked into the office and walked out. Staff, Doctor – were interested in me, the patient. I never felt rushed. They took time with me, something you don’t always find anymore. “
