BOTOX Ideal Candidates
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 Procedure Technique
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.
"I cannot begin to express my gratitude and appreciation for Dr. Lyle. I first met Dr. Lyle a month ago during a consultation to have my recalled Allergan Biocell textured implants (installed by a different surgeon) replaced for smooth wall implants. The experience from beginning to end was fantastic. I was greeted warmly, and I love that they offer you a warm robe in the exam room. This is a nice change from the usual paper gowns. Dr. Lyle himself is lovely. He's friendly, knowledgeable, humble and helpful. Fast forward a month later and I woke up to a swollen and painful left breast - this is a big concern with textured implants, so I called his office at 8 am and was told by reception to start making my way in ASAP. I saw Dr. Lyle at 9 am. He examined me and decided I needed an ultrasound and biopsy. He asked his nurse to call around and find me an appointment. By 10 am I was in the capable hands of the Breast Center in Raleigh. My biopsy was sent right to the lab.The next day, Dr. Lyle called me with my results, thankfully everything was negative. This experience was very emotional and stressful for me and Dr. Lyle and his team were incredible. I am so grateful for everything he has done for me - what a tremendous advocate! I am really looking forward to being in Dr. Lyle's capable hands through my breast revision surgery in the coming weeks. Thank you so much for everything, Dr. Lyle. It is impossible to articulate my gratitude."- A.B. / Google / Jan 25, 2020

My mother calls him “THE PERFECTIONIST” I have had the opportunity to use his services twice over the years and I wouldn’t trust anyone else."- E.S. / Google / Oct 26, 2019

"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! I can see clearly now and the world is a much..."- B. / RealSelf / Feb 26, 2019

BOTOX Smile Without Worry
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 with BOTOX®
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.
