BOTOX – Mount Pleasant, SC
Minimize Wrinkles & Other Signs of Aging
As you get older, you will likely notice fine lines and wrinkles appear across your face. This is incredibly difficult to prevent due to the constant use of your facial muscles each time you smile, frown, scowl, or laugh throughout your life. As the muscles become more worn down, they begin to tense up and become overworked, creating a scrunching effect that makes wrinkles and lines appear. Fortunately, BOTOX in Mount Pleasant, SC can help address these issues without the need for an invasive procedure. Get in touch with the team at Smile Carolina Dental Group to get started!

What Is BOTOX & Xeomin?
BOTOX and Xeomin are both different brands of a diluted version of a bacteria called botulinum toxin. Dr. Johnson, our trusted cosmetic dentist, can inject them into overworked and bunched-up muscles to help them relax and smooth out, minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It is used in small doses and strategically injected to provide subtle, noticeable results that look excellent.
Cosmetic Imperfections That Can Be Addressed by BOTOX or Xeomin
Dr. Johnson, your cosmetic dentist in Mount Pleasant, will talk about the effects of BOTOX and Xeomin injections with you and discuss any changes that you would like to see made during a consultation. Based on what types of transformations you want to see, he will walk you through the pros and cons of each of your options and help you make the best decision for your unique needs. Some of the cosmetic imperfections that BOTOX and Xeomin can address include:
- Crow’s feet that form at the corners of the eyes from smiling and squinting.
- Lines between the eyebrows that form from frowning.
- Horizontal lines in the middle of the forehead.
This treatment can also address a wide array of other imperfections, but this is a non-exhaustive list to help you better understand the effects.
Why Should You Visit a Dentist for BOTOX and Xeomin?
Dr. Jeffrey Johnson has received specialty education in administering both BOTOX and dermal filler injections in addition to his vast dental training that has allowed him to master how facial muscles function and work together. This makes him a knowledgeable and highly trained provider for these treatments. Not to mention, he can create the perfect frame for a gorgeous smile, making this treatment go hand-in-hand with all of the other cosmetic services that we offer.
What Is BOTOX/Xeomin Treatment Like?
Facial injections in Mount Pleasant are a simple, fast, and non-invasive process to help minimize signs of aging and restore your youthful glow. Some patients are not sure what to expect during the treatment, making them anxious. However, we are here to put your nervousness to rest by explaining what will happen.
For both BOTOX and Xeomin injections, we use an incredibly small 31-gauge needle to administer them. For reference, this is the same size needle that diabetics use to give themselves insulin injections. Dr. Johnson will mark the areas of the face that you would most like to improve and carefully administer the injections into the muscles to help them relax. Each injection takes about five minutes to administer, so most patients typically are not in our dental office for more than an hour for this procedure.
