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.
