BOTOX® Cosmetic

The MedSpa at Wake Plastic Surgery proudly serves Cary, Raleigh, and the surrounding areas.

Our facial expressions are so important in helping us communicate who and how we are to others. But as we age, those expressions start to leave behind reminders of those good and bad times that we have experienced. Facial rhytids or wrinkles can often convey messages that we are not intending to express to others. BOTOX® Cosmetic can help minimize or eliminate some of these unwanted facial lines and can help us appear less fatigued and more refreshed.

Why Choose the Nurse Injectors at Wake Plastic Surgery?

It seems as if injectables are available on almost every corner now with special deals and discounts at any number of establishments, most of which do not have the supervision of a board certified plastic surgeon. BOTOX® Cosmetic is safe and effective, but there certainly is more risk to these chemicals when they are being administered by someone without the proper training and certification. The nurse injectors at Wake Plastic Surgery have the knowledge, training, and experience and are committed to providing you with the service and results that you should expect. Emily has been a nurse for 15 years, but now is also our most experienced nurse injector. Kristi began her love for skincare more than ten years ago when she became a Licensed Medical Aesthetician. Since then she continued to expand her knowledge base with her CANS certification in 2019 and is licensed in the state of North Carolina as a Registered Nurse.

What areas of the face can be treated with Botox?

FAQs for Botox

Are Botox injections painful?

Getting Botox injected feels different for everyone. Botox is injected into the area being treated by a very, very small 30 gauge-needle. The is 0.076 millimeters, or about 4.5 human hairs! While there is a pinch with any injection, many patients have said it feels like being bitten by a little mosquito.

How much Botox do need?

Our nurse injectors inject very conservatively at The MedSpa and will never try and up-sale you on treatments that you do not want or need! After your comprehensive consultation, your nurse injector will discuss with you how many units she would recommend to achieve the best outcome before starting the treatment. Botox are sold by the unit injected.  Areas of the face have different unit amounts need for best results.

How often do I need to get Botox?

Most patients find that their sweet spot for getting treatment is every 3-4 months.

What should I expect to look like or feel like after treatment?

Immediately after treatment you will have small raised red bumps at the injection sites that fade in about 15 – 30 minutes.   We recommend not work out for the rest of the day, or wear any tight-fitting hats or headbands, and do not lay face down for 3 hours after treatment. Other than that, you can carry out your regular routine.

Can I get Botox with another treatment the same day?

In most cases, you can get Botox with another treatment the same day at the MedSpa.  For example, you can get a custom facial and Botox the same day, but we will schedule your facial first and then your Botox as your last appointment.

How long is a Botox appointment?

If you are a new patient with us, we want to get to know your skin rejuvenation goals and discuss options before creating your treatment plan with you at  a comprehensive consultation! For new patients, plan on being with us for about an hour for consultation. For returning patients, plan on being with us for about 30 minutes.
