BOTOX Cosmetic can target signs of aging in various areas of your face...
What Is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetic contains botulinum toxin, a protein that can temporarily paralyze facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to develop. Originally approved by the FDA in the late 1980s, BOTOX is used to treat a wide range of medical concerns, as well as the cosmetic effects of aging.
This injectable functions by blocking the signal from the nerves to the muscles. Since the injected muscle can no longer tighten completely, the wrinkles in the area relax for a softer, more youthful look.
Some patients worry that paralyzing muscles sounds dangerous...
“Leslie was awesome! I got Botox and swear I saw results overnight. Definitely recommend!”
Wondering whether BOTOX treatment can help you?
BOTOX Cosmetic Treats Wrinkles Caused by Muscle Movement
Virtually any lines or wrinkles which have formed due to facial expressions can improve with the use of botulinum toxin. Patients often wish to reduce the depth of the crease between their eyebrows or smooth the appearance of smile lines around the mouth. Another common complaint is the fine lines that radiate from the corners of the eyes, often referred to as crow's feet. All of these issues can benefit from BOTOX treatment.
However, if you wish to address wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity, BOTOX may not be the right option for you. Our team may recommend one of the other available treatments.
Can anyone receive BOTOX injections?
We Do Not Recommend This Injectable for Patients Who:
Are Pregnant or Breastfeeding
Are Under 18

But I'm nervous about injections...
Does BOTOX Cosmetic Hurt?
At Back to 30, serving Anderson, Myrtle Beach, and surrounding areas, we use very small needles to inject BOTOX Cosmetic. Most patients notice little to no discomfort during the procedure.
We can also numb the treatment area with an anesthetic or a cold pack to ensure your comfort.
You may experience some minor redness, pain, or bruising shortly after the injections. However, these side effects should fade within a few days.
Wondering what BOTOX Cosmetic can treat?
Getting Ready for Your BOTOX Appointment
There are several things you can do in the weeks leading up to your BOTOX treatment to reduce the chance of side effects. About two weeks before your session, stop taking any medications which can thin your blood, including:
- Ginkgo Biloba
- Flax Oil
- Fish Oil
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin E
If you need to manage pain, Tylenol is a good alternative to anti-inflammatories. You should also avoid drinking alcohol in the week before your appointment

Is was the least painful Botox treatment I have ever had! ...LOVED LOVED LOVED everyone there and just wanted to say THANK YOU!“
Most patients need little to no downtime but...
Take Care during the First 24 Hours to Protect Your Results
You can return to work and other normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. However, you should lay down for at least an hour after the procedure or rub the treated area for at least 12 hours. Putting too much pressure on the treatment site can affect your results.
We also recommend that you avoid strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after your appointment.

Before & After BOTOX Cosmetic
Maintaining the Effects of Your BOTOX Treatment
BOTOX Cosmetic is a temporary solution to wrinkles, frown lines, and other signs of aging. Taking certain steps after your injectable treatment can help you get the most out of your investment:
- Reduce Sun Exposure: Using sunscreen and protecting your skin against UV rays may help maintain the effects of your treatment.
- Take Care of Your Skin: Moisturizing your skin daily can help keep it plump and firm until your next session.
- Eat Right: Drink plenty of water and eat foods which supports the health of your skin. You should also avoid processed and packaged foods.
- Minimize Stress: High stress levels can enhance common signs of aging. Finding ways to decrease stress in your life could improve the life of your BOTOX results.
Regular maintenance treatments at our Back to 30 centers can also help extend the life of your results. Over time, BOTOX Cosmetic can start to train the targeted muscles, helping them respond more effectively to the botulinum toxin.
