When you look at yourself in the mirror, do you feel unhappy with creases and wrinkles on your forehead and the skin around your eyes? These skin concerns are often called dynamic lines because of repeated expressions, such as frowning, squinting, and smiling. As men and women age, dynamic wrinkles and lines eventually start to look more pronounced and can make them appear older. With BOTOX treatments, we can temporarily stop the formation of moderate to severe frown lines, Crow's feet, and forehead creases. BOTOX is derived from a purified type A strain of botulinum toxin. It works to temporarily "freeze" the muscles that create the lines, letting the skin rejuvenate itself. At Madeliene Elaine, Dr. Madeliene Elaine Gainers is pleased to provide BOTOX as a nonsurgical solution to help patients enjoy a younger-looking, beautiful complexion. Our team encourages you to get in touch with our office in Chevy Chase, MD for more information about the advantages of BOTOX!

Should I Get BOTOX?
Adults who prefer a noninvasive option to minimize Crow's feet, frown lines, or forehead creases may be ideal candidates for BOTOX at Madeliene Elaine. BOTOX may be a great cosmetic option if you feel upset by prominent "11" lines between the eyes (glabellar lines), which can cause the face to look aged. BOTOX treatments have gained a reputation with younger patients, as well. Even though younger adults between the ages of 20 – 30 may not yet show the early signs of aging, BOTOX is often used as a preventive option to reduce the signs of aging by temporarily reducing or slowing the proliferation of age-related wrinkles.
How Does BOTOX Work?
During your initial treatment consultation at Madeliene Elaine, Dr. Gainers will determine which areas will benefit from treatment. Since BOTOX is provided during a quick, in-office treatment, Dr. Gainers can usually perform your injections at the same appointment. The formula is injected into the problem areas of your forehead or face with a fine-gauge needle. Generally, BOTOX takes about ten minutes to complete, and many people notice only minor discomfort (such as a pinprick or pinching sensation). After your session, you are welcome to leave our Chevy Chase, MD practice and go about your daily activities.
Expected BOTOX Results
You may notice mild bruising, redness, and swelling near the treatment sites, but these symptoms should subside on their own. For the next day a day or so, your injector might suggest that you avoid rigorous physical activity and keep yourself from touching the treated areas of your face. Within 48 – 72 hours, you will likely begin to notice smoother, firmer skin. BOTOX treatments can provide up to four months of youthful, natural-looking cosmetic enhancements for many people. Dr. Gainers will suggest how often you should receive injections as part of a customized plan to help you meet your cosmetic goals. Additionally, our staff can talk with you about the price of BOTOX; however, the cost tends to vary, according to how many units we administer.
How many BOTOX injections will I likely need?
The amount of BOTOX needed will vary based on individual goals and the extent of your wrinkles. Dr. Gainers will suggest the ideal number of BOTOX injections according to your desired aesthetic goals and whether you prefer to address the forehead, Crow's feet, or between the eyes. To prolong your cosmetic outcomes, our experts might suggest receiving BOTOX services every few months at Madeliene Elaine.
Can BOTOX be paired with other nonsurgical procedures?
BOTOX procedures pair well with additional nonsurgical options for those who would like to address aging concerns. If you experience more extensive and pronounced facial lines, we could recommend incorporating a dermal filler to help you achieve optimal results. To further maximize a youthful radiant glow, Dr. Gainers might provide other complementary services, such as PRP with microneedling or facials.
Is there a comparable aesthetic injectable option?
BOTOX is a specific formulation of wrinkle reducer that exists within a myriad of other effective solutions, including XEOMIN®, Dysport®, and Jeuveau™. All of these wrinkle relaxer solutions consist of botulinum toxin type A, but they are each designed a little differently to address certain concerns.
What is the difference between dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers?
Even though wrinkle reducers, such as BOTOX Cosmetic, are provided to minimize fine lines by temporarily freezing your muscle engagement, fillers are a distinct collection of cosmetic options that increase volume in the face. Fillers are intended to plump hollow features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Gainers can ascertain if you would be a good candidate for a dermal filler (such as Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to complement your BOTOX results.
