Doctor Coan was so knowledgeable and down to earth. I wasn't sure what to expect having Botox for the first time but his manner and kindness put me at ease. I've referr him to many friends who've also had the same great experience with he and his office, they're just great people. I also appreciated his rationale for the products he recommended. Highly recommend. more
I never thought I would actually have anything injected into my face, but years of teenage children antics and a stressful job had done a real number on my forehead. Dr. Adam Becker (Durham/Raleigh, NC area) listened carefully to what I didn't like and gave me his opinion when I asked. He took a very conservative approach to my treatment, followed up with a phone call the next day, and had... more
I have very DEEP wrinkles in my forehead. I tried botox and cannot believe how different my forehead looks. Seriously, its like night and day. I have received my botox from 2 different locations on 3 different occasions. You definitely have to find someone who knows how to properly inject. If they dont inject in the right locations you run the risk of droopy brows or worse. I did get a droopy... more
Dr Franklin has an exception bedside manner lacking in many providers. The procedure was clearly explained and I felt totally at ease. I strongly recommend Dr Franklin and his team. Making an appointment was easy and the staff carefully answered my questions about cost. The office was clean, bright and uplifting, not to mention conveniently located. more
I received free Botox units after my breast augmentation because of the brand implant I chose. I finally took the plunge and went in to the med-spa portion of my plastic surgeon's practice, called Skin Raleigh.
After looking over many reviews here on Real Self, I was actually a bit nervous to have it done. There have been a few reviews where the person says Botox has totally messed them up... more
I am a 32 year old mother of 2 so the wrinkles have officially begun. I have not had any previous procedures like this but have wanted to try botox for it's preventative benefits. I have very strong forehead muscles and frown lines (see pic, yikes!) so I thought I would be a good candidate. Andrea took her time and talked me through each step. The procedure began with her marking the injection... more
I'm so glad I had this procedure done. The lines on my forehead were driving me crazy! The lines are gone and I'm much more confident in the way I look. I felt great afterward. No headaches like you often hear about. The nurse, Andrea, front desk staff, Gretta and Claire were all fantastic! I'll go back again and again! more
No pain at all... They told me it may take up to 10 days before I saw results... It has been 12 days... Nothing Happened... I am disappointed. I feel like I wasted my money. It is just a disappointment that it didn't work for me. There was no change, lips size was the same size almost two weeks later. They think I metabolized it before it could do anything. :( more
The best Botox I'ver ever had! I look completely natural. One of my coworkers remarked how great and relaxed I looked! I had been on vacation and hadn't see the group in about a week. Nobody asked if I'd had anything done, they just thought I looked rested and relaxed. I buy my skincare products from Dr. F. as well. I'm definitely going back for a touch up! more

I got a headache the day after...It has progressively gotten worse..I have a sinus pressure like I've never had before. I don't get headache's this is why I know at it is from the Botox...I have taken allergy meds for pressure... more
I had fine results with a Raleigh office in the past, but when I had my last appt. in JANUARY, there was a new nurse doing injections. I had filler along the laugh lines and botox in the forehead. Well, she injected too close to the surface and I was left with granulomas on both sides of the nose. She then plastered my face with mineral-makeup, which I do not use, and I almost fainted when I... more
I have been getting Botox at Dr. L's office for 4 years. I drive from Chapel Hill and it is worth the trip. The price I am payig now is far less than I paid before. i thiknk they are using less Botox to get the same result. I have been consistently happy since I started going there 4 years ago. I will probably never start. My advice is too look for an office that uses a lot of Botox. They... more
Had botox between eyes, lines only partially went away and fully came back in two months. i feel cheated, does this sound right? was it injected correctly? Is the botox old?had botox between eyes, lines only partially went away and fully came back in two months. i feel cheated, does this sound right? more
It didn't last at all. And I was never really happy. I did it because my husband passed away and I felt like it really took a toll on my eyes.I read that the doctor can make the solution weak by the amount of saline added to bottle. I had my injection on April 8th and you would never know it now. I had 20 units.How do I know for next time. What questions do I ask? Or does Botox not work on... more
I had botox injected into my crow's feet. They are gone, however, the skin under my eyes is baggy, saggy, and puffy. I am embarrassed to smile because I look like a freak. I am learning that the human face is a beautiful and delicate system of interrelated muscles. If you knock out one part, the rest overcompensates to bring back the balance. I would never ever ever do this again, or any other... more
I've had a couple of Botox treatments focusing on my forehead. I have a line that runs across the length of my forehead that's rather deep and ages me beyond my years.
My dermatologist injected me not in the line as I would have thought, but targeted the muscles in the forehead that caused that line to be there.
It took about 3-7 days, but sure enough, it disappeared. It was amazing really.... more
