One Washington, DC resident’s experience with Botox

Botox, the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, is used to help slow down the signs of aging as well as smooth existing skin wrinkles. We spoke with one Bruno | Brown patient about her experience with Botox:

What was your experience like at Bruno | Brown compared to other places?
The med spa put a lot of injections in a few places, when Bruno | Brown used a little in a lot of places. Dr. Bruno kept asking me to move my face to really target the lines. By doing it this way the look is much more natural; you don’t get this weird one eyebrow higher than the other.

I’ve also never gotten a headache from them when at the med spa I would always get a headache.

I got a droopy eyelid at the med spa once, I had to actually change how I do my eyebrow makeup to make them even because the placement changed so much. Bruno | Brown also said I could go back if there was a problem, and I probably would do that if there was an issue. There’s a lot of security in that.

The results were just so natural, everything just smoothed out.

Botox procedure and recovery in DC

Botox treatment usually only takes between 10-15 minutes, and there is no recovery time. You’ll see results that can last between 4-6 months in certain areas. You may have some minor swelling or pain at the injection site, but this subsides almost immediately after the initial injection.

Botox should be administered by a trained and experienced medical professional, such as the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery. Someone with limited experience giving Botox could possibly make the injections too deep, too low, or in the wrong spot. This could cause negative side effects, like droopy eyelids or a “frozen look”.
