BOTOX® Treatment Near Charlotte, North Carolina (Huntersville & Greensboro Locations)
BOTOX® is well known as one of the most used cosmetic procedures to diminish dynamic lines and wrinkles on the face. Simply put, these injections are one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for reducing the signs of aging, and for restoring the skin to a more youthful and radiant appearance.
As you seek BOTOX® in Huntersville or Greensboro, we invite you to schedule a consultation here at the Carolina Age Management Institute.
We would love to talk with you further about the benefits of BOTOX®, and help you determine whether you are a good candidate for this anti-aging treatment.
What are the Benefits of BOTOX®?
When carefully administered by a trained professional, a minimally invasive injection of BOTOX® relaxes the underlying muscles in your face, giving a younger appearance by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Some additional advantages include:
- Minimizing frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines
- No downtime
- Treats excessive sweating in off-label uses for the underarms and other body areas
- Provides relief for severe headaches such as migraines, when injected into muscles around the forehead
- Lifts eyebrows to minimize a tired appearance
- Creates a more dynamic and fresh look as well as self-image

While your treatment can vary, depending on the areas being treated, patients generally experience the following during BOTOX® treatment:
- Injectable treatments usually take just a few minutes
- Multiple areas can be treated during the same session
- Discomfort during the procedure is very minimal – numbing cream may be applied to relieve any potential discomfort from the injection, though most patients do not report any issues
- No anesthesia required
There is no recovery with BOTOX® injections. Patients return to normal activities following this cosmetic procedure. In fact, you are free to head straight back to work as soon as your treatment is finished. Any redness or swelling at the injection site resolves itself within a day or so. Results are noticeable within 24 to 48 hours.
How Long Do BOTOX® Results Last?
One of the most common questions we hear about this treatment is how long the results typically last. Generally speaking, injections that are administered by a skilled dermatologist or plastic surgeon should last you sometime between 3 months and 6 months.
Over time, your muscles will begin to contract again, which usually means a return of wrinkles and fine lines. With that said, regular “maintenance” injections can help you extend your results, and enjoy long-term improvements to your facial appearance

Other Common Questions About BOTOX®
Where Can BOTOX® Be Applied?
It is most often used around the eyes and forehead to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used to treat people dealing with excessive underarm sweating, as well as severe headaches like migraines.
Where Should I Go for BOTOX® Treatment?
We strongly advise against DIY BOTOX® injections. The reason for this is simple: Injectable treatments require clinical skill, expert understanding of facial anatomy, and rigorous training, or else the results may be botched or even dangerous.
This is a medical procedure meant to be performed by medical professionals. BOTOX® is safe when injected by a clinically trained professional to specific areas of the face and body. However, when inappropriately performed, injections may result in serious problems including but not limited to overtreatment, treatment too close to vital nerves and muscles, muscle paralysis, and other adverse reactions.
We would recommend seeking treatment from a skilled, trained injector, who can ensure your safety and also provide you with the most aesthetically-pleasing results. For BOTOX® in Charlotte, NC, we invite you to consider CAMI.
Does BOTOX® Have Any Side Effects?
The most common side effects of BOTOX® include minimal and temporary swelling, as well as some minor redness and bruising around the injection sites. Though more serious side effects are rarer, some patients may experience the following:
• Flu-like symptoms
• Low-grade fevers
Even more rarely, some patients may experience drooping of the eyelids, or drooling at the corner of the mouth. Contact CAMI if you experience any of these side effects. Also note that BOTOX® injections are not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
How Much Is BOTOX® Near Charlotte, NC?
The cost varies for injections based on the area being treated, the number of injections required, and whether other treatments are performed at the same time. Treatments are typically considered a cosmetic treatment not covered by insurance; however, if they are done to relieve excessive sweating or severe headaches, insurance may provide coverage for the injections.
At the Carolina Age Management Institute, we accept cash, checks, and major credit cards. We also offer financing through CareCredit®.
In addition to payment options, Carolina Age Management Institute offers the Brilliant Distinctions® program from Allergan®.
