Botox injections are a popular cosmetic treatment that can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by relaxing the muscles in the treated areas, resulting in a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion.

As you journey through life, it can show on your face – expression lines develop overtime to create wrinkles and crow’s feet. These tell a story of the memories made but may also leave us feeling older or more drained than our years suggest.

At Southern Grace Med Spa, we understand that everyone has individual skin needs. We offer safe, effective Botox treatments to clients in the Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina and greater Charleston area. To learn more, SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION today.


  • FAQS

What Is Botox?

Botox utilizes the neurotoxin botulinum toxin type A to temporarily paralyze those nerve muscles responsible for creating wrinkles. These injections are a modern solution for those looking to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, facial creases, and facial expression lines.

Since its approval by the FDA in 2002, Botox has been widely accepted as a safe and effective cosmetic treatment. Over 16 years of extensive research have supported this claim – making it one of the most researched treatments available today.

When you come in for your consultation, we will work with you to make a treatment plan that fits your needs.

Before and Afters

Botox treatments offer a fast-acting beauty solution to diminish visible wrinkles and lines, with results appearing in only 24-48 hours. After several treatments, you can enjoy long term benefits that could last upwards of 6 months.

Are You a Good Candidate for Botox Treatment?

Botox is an effective way to treat the visible signs of age, such as crow’s feet and worry lines. It can also reduce other aging symptoms like nasolabial folds and vertical neck bands while providing relief from excessive sweating. Individuals also find great relief when using Botox for migraines.

Good candidates are typically looking for a smoother complexion, fewer expression lines and frown lines, or relief from excessive sweating, and must be physically healthy with no related skin conditions or neuromuscular disease diagnosis; additionally they should be at least 18 years old and not pregnant/nursing.

Before your appointment, we’ll need to review a comprehensive record of your medical history. To ensure the best possible treatment outcome, you may be asked to temporarily cease taking anti-inflammatories like NSAIDs as well as Retin-A and tretinoin products in order to avoid adverse reactions; alcohol should also not be consumed prior to the visit either.

What to Expect During and After Your Botox Treatment


Before your appointment with us, one of our team members will be in touch to explain the process and provide aftercare instructions for when you go home.

Depending on how many areas are being treated, a typical Botox injection may take around 10 minutes. If we are treating multiple areas it may take a little longer.

For those receiving their first treatment with us – rest assured that an experienced professional is administering it; they’ll start at lower doses so its effectiveness can be monitored prior to any subsequent sessions needed down the line.

The procedure itself usually doesn’t involve formal anesthetics which means discomforts such as slight pinches may occur – but these should pass quickly!


Following treatment, you should take care to avoid strenuous activities and touching the area for 3 hours. Additionally, lying down within 4 hours afterwards is not recommended as it could predispose you to a drooping eyelid due to diffusion of Botox into your eye region.

To ensure optimal results are achieved, cosmetic laser treatments or microdermabrasion must be postponed until 10 days after injection has completed.

Mild side effects may include discoloration, and bruising or swelling in the injection area, but will subside shortly afterward with no long-term consequences.

Related Treatments

Botox injections may be used to kickstart your treatment plan, but we won’t stop there. Our tailored approach considers both the medical aesthetics of your skin as well as its overall health before suggesting additional or alternative procedures like laser skin resurfacing or Aviclear, if you suffer from adult acne.

Although similar to Botox, you may find that you get better results from another neurotoxin. We offer JUVEAU and XEOMIN as alternative neurotoxin treatments.

Many patients also like to pair Botox with dermal fillers, such as juvederm, for a rejuvenated look.

How long will my Botox results last?

Botox is an ideal treatment for a refreshed and invigorated complexion that can be tailored to match your desired aesthetic. After initial treatments, you will begin enjoying the effects of fresh confidence – with results lasting 4 months or more after regular maintenance injections.

When should I begin Botox treatments?

Botox treatments are available for adults 18 and up. There is no set age for any individual to begin Botox injections, as everything is unique. Many individuals begin preventative sessions in their late 20’s and early 30’s to stave off deep wrinkle formation. At any age you can see transformative results with Botox.

How is Botox different from Jeuveau and Xeomin?

Botox, JEUVEAU and XEOMIN are three powerful treatments that utilize the same active ingredient – botulinum toxin type A. But beneath their exterior lies a much more complex formula: different dosages, onset times and longevity of effects make each product unique in its own right.
