Savannah Botox at Savannah Facial Plastic Surgery

It's common to see crow's feet, forehead and frown lines when you look in the mirror. These wrinkles occur due to the constant movement of your facial muscles. As time passes, they can deepen, leaving permanent lines on your face.

To combat these signs of aging, we offer neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport at Savannah Facial Plastic Surgery. These treatments effectively halt the movements of the muscles responsible for these wrinkles, resulting in smoother and diminished lines. The key ingredient in these products, botulinum toxin type A, has a remarkable safety profile backed by extensive clinical research spanning decades. Choose rejuvenation with confidence at Savannah Facial Plastic Surgery in Savannah, GA.

What is Botox?

At Savannah Facial Plastic Surgery Botox is a quick and easy non-surgical procedure to erase the fine lines and deeper wrinkles that increase as we age. Botox works by simply relaxing the muscles in the targeted area, creating a smoother, more refreshed appearance in just a few days. Botox is especially effective in treating the most common age-related facial issues, such as:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Vertical neck bands
  • Forehead lines and furrows
  • “Bunny lines” on the sides of the nose
  • Marionette lines around the mouth

With precision application, Dr. Minton also uses Botox to gently lift the brow area for a more youthful, rested appearance. Lesser known uses for Botox include treating migraines and excessive sweating in the underarms, palms, or feet.

What are the benefits of Botox?

Botox, a widely acclaimed cosmetic treatment, offers a host of benefits that have made it a go-to solution for countless individuals seeking facial rejuvenation. Botox effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly those caused by repetitive muscle movements. It targets dynamic wrinkles such as crow's feet around the eyes, forehead lines, and frown lines between the brows, helping to smooth out these age-related imperfections. Botox treatments are known for their convenience and minimal downtime. The procedure is relatively quick, often taking just a few minutes, making it an ideal option for those with busy schedules. 

Additionally, there's minimal discomfort involved, with most patients experiencing only mild, temporary sensations at the injection site. One of the most significant advantages is that the results are noticeable within days, and they continue to improve over the course of about a week, allowing individuals to enjoy a refreshed and more youthful appearance without the need for extensive recovery time. These benefits and its proven safety record make Botox a sought-after choice for those looking to turn back the hands of time.

Rewind, Refresh, Revive

Your Botox Consultation

An initial consultation with Dr. Minton is the first step to any procedure. There he will discuss your health history. Medications such as aspirin and ibuprofen should be avoided as they can increase the likelihood of bruising.

The Injection Procedure

The procedure for Botox is fairly simple and relatively painless. Dr. Minton uses a very thin needle to inject small quantities of Botox into the targeted muscles. The number of injections depends on the intensity of the wrinkles, your facial features, and desired results, all of which Dr. Minton will cover in the initial consultation.

Some injection sites are more sensitive than others, but Dr. Minton can use either ice or a topical anesthetic ointment to help alleviate any minor discomfort, which generally is nothing more than a brief stinging sensation.

After The Procedure

Botox Results

The great thing about Botox is that there’s no downtime. You can get back to your normal activities almost immediately, though there may be some initial redness for a few minutes. Temporary bruising may occur, but applying ice packs tends to help. Bruising and any swelling will disappear within a few hours or just a few days. You will begin to see results within a few days, but it will take up to a week to see the complete effect. Botox will last for three to four months on average.

Botox Recovery and Aftercare

Following your Botox treatment, it's essential to be mindful of a few key considerations for a smooth and successful recovery. Firstly, avoid strenuous physical activities for the remainder of the day to prevent the displacement of the injected Botox. Additionally, refrain from massaging or rubbing the treated areas to ensure the toxin remains precisely where it's needed.

You may experience some mild redness or swelling at the injection sites, but this typically subsides within a few hours to a day. It's advisable to avoid excessive sun exposure and heat, as well as alcoholic beverages, for a day or two after your treatment, as these factors can potentially exacerbate side effects. Lastly, if you have any concerns or questions during your recovery, don't hesitate to reach out to our team at Savannah Facial Plastic Surgery in Savannah, GA. We're here to provide guidance and ensure you achieve the best possible results from your Botox Savannah treatment.


Frequently Asked Questions

Over time, our repeated facial movements create fine lines and wrinkles. Botox restricts muscular nerve signals, helping the overworked muscles relax. This allows the skin to become smooth again.

Botox is a very safe treatment with very few risks or complications. However, it should not be used on women who are pregnant or nursing. Botox should not be used with some medications, which is why it’s important to give Dr. Minton information about any and all medications you are taking.

After the initial consultation, a series of Botox injections only takes about 15 minutes.

The effects of Botox are temporary, but they will generally last 3 to 4 months.

Sometimes “touch-up” injections are needed to get the best results. If you aren’t 100% satisfied with the procedure, Dr. Minton encourages you to come for a follow-up visit. However, you’ll want to wait about two weeks in order to see the full effects of the treatment.

Unlike surgery, the effects of Botox are not permanent, so it is not considered an alternative to surgery, but Botox can prolong the need for surgery. Additionally, it can be used as a way to “preview” the results of more permanent procedures.
