Aging is a natural occurrence, but it can often bring with it unwanted changes to the skin. Fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin blemishes are tell-tale signs of getting older that can often detract from a person’s appearance. For patients who want to turn back the page on time, Botox® provides a quick and easy solution. When administered by skilled and knowledgeable doctors, Botox® can correct the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face.
What Can Botox® Treat?
Botox is an appropriate treatment for numerous types of fine lines and wrinkles, including:
- The forehead, especially lines that appear near the hairline.
- The glabella, which is the area between the eyebrows.
- The corners of the eyes, especially crow’s feet.
While Botox® can provide great aesthetic improvements in these areas, it can also be used to treat numerous other health conditions, including:
- Pain and pressure related to TMJ problems.
- Chronic pain that’s tied to trigger points.
- Migraine headaches that recur on a regular basis.
How Does the Botox® Procedure Work?
Botox® is an injectable drug that’s created with a bacterial toxin called botulin. It works by inactivating the muscles where it has been injected, helping them to relax. In turn, this smoothes out the skin of the face, reducing tension so that wrinkles and fine lines naturally smooth out. With the right placement by our doctors, patients still have full range of facial expression while looking years younger.
Before the Botox® procedure, our doctors will have an initial consultation with patients to find out more about their concerns. They’ll work to determine if the patient is a good candidate for Botox and then plan out which areas would see the best results.
Because the procedure is so fast, Reston patients won’t need to take a full day off work — rather, they can head back to the office as soon as the injections are finished. There is no downtime, which is great for patients who want results without a long recovery.
How Soon Will a Patient See Results From Botox®?
Results with Botox® are not immediate, as patients may experience some swelling and redness in the area. However, this should clear up within a few days, after which they’ll begin to see a drastic improvement. Full results should appear about a week after the injections and last for about four months. If patients would like to maintain their wrinkle-free appearance, they can easily schedule a touch-up appointment with our doctors at this time.
