To diminish the effects of aging and to prevent lines, wrinkles, and lax skin from forming on the forehead and upper face, Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center in Raleigh, NC is proud to offer BOTOX to local patients. This facial rejuvenation procedure provides amazing results and is popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a dramatic enhancement to dynamic facial wrinkles, which are the result of expressions and movement from the muscles contracting on the forehead. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic creases can still exist. BOTOX is a purified strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the underlying tissue and muscle. To diminish the appearance of these dynamic lines and wrinkles, BOTOX is injected to relax and soften the skin. This specific injection is most commonly placed by plastic surgeon Dr. Glenn Lyle between the brows where the number "11" appears, on Crow's feet, and throughout the forehead.
BOTOX is used for individuals who hope to diminish and soften the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their face in a nonsurgical manner. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive treatment even if static wrinkles have not yet formed — keep in mind how often you tend to make facial expressions. It is an effective nonsurgical solution if you have obvious forehead lines or frown lines between the brows. It's also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you have deeper lines, a combination of BOTOX and a filler may be a better option. Also, if you are older with moderate to severe skin laxity, you may instead be a candidate for a facelift, which offers a more dramatic result and it is meant to last years. Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center offers various facelifts, blepharoplasties, and brow lifts as great alternatives.
"A+ Blepharoplasty with Dr. Glenn Lyle of RPSC! - Finally, my visual field has been restored after constantly struggling with sagging- hooded eyelids that were impacting my daily life such as: working on the computer with my head tilted backwards to see the screen, forehead fatigue causing aching, my eyelashes pushing down and finally the feeling that I had a "frame of dimness" is completely gone!

"Great Experience - I am very happy with my experience with Dr Lyle. I wanted my breast implants out and didn't know what else I should do to look somewhat normal afterwards. He suggested a lift and I asked for a fat transfer, so I had it all done together. He was honest and caring. I like his bedside manner. I always get in early for my appointments. His office staff is nice as was the OR staff during my..."- R. / RealSelf / Jan 26, 2018
"30 Years of Implants; So Glad They Are Out! - I wish I'd never had them and that I had them taken out much sooner than I did. I hope my story assures some of you that you might recover your health and vitality after ex-plantation, and also that you might look fine without any tucks. But here's my story. I'll begin with why I made the decision to get them in the first place.I was 5' 4" tall and weighed around 110-115 lbs from age 20..."- V. / RealSelf / Sep 20, 2017
BOTOX injectable treatments are done as an outpatient procedure right at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center. If it is your first time to visit us in Raleigh, NC to get BOTOX, we usually perform the injection within the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Lyle. You will be asked to make a number of facial expressions using the upper face, including squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to see where the injections need to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected using a fine needle, followed by cool compressions to help prevent bruising and discomfort. You may request aids like ice and numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not needed. BOTOX typically takes about 10 – 15 minutes, after which you may get back to your normal day almost immediately.
What to Expect
After the BOTOX injection, you are allowed to return to your normal schedule, but strenuous activities like exercise should be postponed for at least a day. You will be asked to sleep with your head propped up for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may become red, swollen, or bruised for a couple of days after the BOTOX injection, but you will not have any serious or lasting side effects from wrinkle relaxer treatments. In the majority of cases, it generally takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX become visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule a follow-up appointment at Raleigh Plastic Surgery Center to refresh your results.
