Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s top facial plastic surgeon believes Botox can effectively fight off early signs of aging.   Dr. Freeman performs Botox injections to relax the facial muscles which create wrinkles.  This lessens the appearance of laugh lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.

Fighting crow’s feet

Many of us have begun to notice the spider web of lines around our eyes, especially when we smile.  While many consider smile lines to be a sign that they’ve led a happy life, others want to fight them off before they become deeply embedded crow’s feet.  Botox is very effective against crow’s feet, relaxing the muscles which form smile lines.

Fight frown lines

Botox is very good against those pesky lines that form on your forehead when you frown.  Many of us wrinkle our forehead unconsciously when we listen or concentrate. Eventually, these wrinkles become permanent.  This is where Botox can help.  Botox relaxes and freezes the muscles in the forehead prohibiting wrinkles from happening.

The procedure

Dr. Freeman performs all Botox procedures at his state-of-the-art clinic in Charlotte NC, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery.  He will meet with each patient for an initial consultation to determine the best treatments for each patient’s individual situation.   If Botox is the selected procedure, Dr. Freeman will inject a small amount of Botox into the muscles creating the problem.  In effect, Botox deactivates those muscles producing wrinkles, dramatically reducing wrinkle lines.  For more information or to schedule your Botox treatment, call Dr. Freeman’s Charlotte NC clinic today.

Both the full facelift and the minituck target signs of aging on the face.  Heredity, gravity, sun exposure, and personal habits can all age a person’s face.  Results from this type of procedure can range from mild to very dramatic and depend upon the individual’s appearance and the effects of aging prior to the procedure.  Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeon, Dr. M. Sean Freeman does both a minituck and a full facelift, along with a variety of other facial plastic surgery procedures designed to help improve appearance.

Important considerations

Dr. Freeman performs both his SignatureLift and a full facelift at his state-of-the-art clinic in Charlotte NC.  Dr. Freeman’s primary goal with any facial plastic surgery procedure is to provide the patient with the best natural-looking results possible.  Call today to schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Freeman and discuss which procedure, the minituck or full facelift is right for you.
