Cosmetic Injections

Botox & Xeomin

BOTOX® and XEOMIN® treatments are revolutionary approaches to reversing the effects of facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines, laugh lines and other dynamic wrinkle lines can all be a thing of the past! Cosmetic injections are technique-sensitive treatments, so if you’re looking for Botox in Asheville, consider seeing Dr. Jenny Lane at Rockcliff. When treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy, you can expect natural looking, effective results.

Before Injection

To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to surgery. In addition, an examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns about this aesthetic treatment will be discussed.

The areas that will be treated are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after surgery.

The Procedure

Cosmetic injections are considered to be virtually pain free…only a small sting is felt. Botulinum Toxin injections effectively soften or temporarily eliminate upper facial wrinkles and can last as long as 6 months. Results may vary. Treatments may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic results. Cosmetic injectables are only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.

Post-Injection Information

After injections, patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Most normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles, and in rare cases an eyelid may droop. Botox is completely reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition. Dr. Lane will explain all risks at the time of your consultation. We look forward to seeing you at our Vanderbilt Asheville location for your cosmetic procedures!
