what is BOTOX?
Each time you take a look at yourself in a mirror, are you concerned about wrinkles or fine lines on your forehead and the area around your eyes? Frequently called dynamic wrinkles and lines, these skin concerns develop from continuous expressions, including squinting, smiling, and frowning. As we mature, these wrinkles and lines eventually stay put and can make us seem less youthful. With BOTOX Cosmetic, we can often temporarily diminish the appearance of moderate to severe Crow's feet, frown lines, and horizontal forehead creases. BOTOX is derived from a purified strain of botulinum toxin type A. It works to temporarily "freeze" the facial muscles that enable those expressions, letting the skin become smoother on its own. At VIP Cosmetic Surgery, medical director Dr. Kenneth Farr is proud to offer BOTOX injections as a nonsurgical cosmetic option to help individuals enjoy a smoother, rejuvenated appearance. Call our office in Bluffton, SC to learn more about BOTOX.

"Dr. Farr is very knowledgeable and caring; I recommend him and appreciate the results of the Botox treatments I have received. He generously took time today to treat an issue I had with my eye, even though I was only scheduled for a Botox treatment! Having worked with a scheduled workday, I appreciate his doing an unscheduled procedure for me! Thank you to Melissa and the other caring staff; you are very special women who I greatly appreciate!"- M.C. / Google / Apr 14, 2021
"I enjoyed my consultation with Dr Farr and am so excited to proceed. I wish I had found him sooner. He answered all my questions on thread lifts and was also able to do my BOTOX on the same day. I had my threads done a week after my consultation and my results are amazing. I am very happy with his technique. His staff is also so friendly I felt right at home. Highly recommend VIP COSMETIC SURGERY."- MN / Office Visit / May 04, 2021
"Dr. Farr is wonderful. I will definitely be back for more Botox with him."- L.J. / Google / Sep 03, 2023
"I have went to Dr. Farr for several years now for my Botox and other cosmetic needs and have always been extremely happy with my results! The staff is helpful and knowledgeable about the products and procedures which makes me feel more comfortable when doing something new! So when I heard they now offer cosmetic tattoos I just had to have my lips done. Heidi was AMAZING and she walked me through everything step by step so I was not nervous at all. I had never had a tattoo before and didn’t know what to expect. She helped me pick a more subtle color the first visit to see how I liked it and so it wouldn’t give me too much of the shock factor. When I went back for my follow up appointment I went a little brighter and I LOVE it!!! Heidi gave me a beautiful cupids bow and made my lips look fuller than they ever have all while making them look natural!!! All I do now is put on some chapstick or clear lipgloss and leave the house! I am also going to have my MIL come for a consult for her brows since she has struggled with them for years and I know she will love Heidi and have full confidence in her tattooing abilities! I am super happy with the entire experience and recommend Heidi and Dr. Farr for any cosmetic needs! You will come away looking and feeling more confident and beautiful just like I do!!!"- C.T. / Google / Sep 07, 2023
How Does BOTOX Work?
During your initial consult at VIP Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Farr will examine your face to help determine which areas need treatment. Since BOTOX is a quick, outpatient therapy, your injections can be administered during the same visit. The solution will be placed into the specified areas of your brow or upper face using a fine-gauge needle. BOTOX takes approximately a few minutes to administer, and most individuals experience only mild discomfort. At the end of your appointment, you can leave our office and go about your usual day.
You might notice a bit of mild bruising, redness, and swelling at the treatment sites, but these symptoms shouldn't last long. Within 2 – 3 days, you should begin to experience your smooth, firm results. BOTOX treatments can deliver up to four months of youthful, natural-looking results for women and men. Touch-ups can be scheduled at our med spa in Bluffton, SC every 3 – 4 months.
How many BOTOX treatments will I need?
The amount of BOTOX needed will vary based on individual goals and the extent of your lines and wrinkles. Dr. Farr can determine the correct quantity of BOTOX injections according to your cosmetic goals and whether you want to address the brow area, forehead, or Crow's feet. To keep up with your cosmetic results, our practitioners could recommend getting BOTOX injections every 3 – 4 months at VIP Cosmetic Surgery.
Can I have BOTOX additional cosmetic procedures?
BOTOX pairs well with other aesthetic options at VIP Cosmetic Surgery for individuals who wish to reduce aging concerns. If you experience more pronounced and severe lines, our experts may recommend adding a filler for optimal results. To further improve a younger-looking radiant appearance, Dr. Farr may perform other complementary procedures, such as facials or microneedling with PRP.
Are there comparable cosmetic injections?
BOTOX is a specific type of wrinkle relaxer that exists within a myriad of other effective solutions, such as XEOMIN®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau™. These wrinkle-reducing treatments contain type A botulinum toxin, but they are each created a little differently to meet specific concerns.
Is there a difference between wrinkle reducers and fillers?
Though wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX Cosmetic, are used to decrease fine lines by temporarily blocking your muscle contractions, dermal fillers are a separate collection of cosmetic formulations that increase facial volume. Dermal fillers are intended to plump sunken areas and soften static wrinkles. Dr. Farr can determine whether you may benefit from a filler (such as Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to complement your BOTOX results.
