Botox is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses Botulinum Toxin to smooth out the skin and help prevent wrinkles and lines on your face.

How does Botox work?
Injections of the botulinum toxin block the nerve signals to the muscle in which it is injected. Without a signal, the muscle is not able to contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles. In simpler terms, Botox is injected into your skin and helps prevent movement so that your face remains smoother.
What are the benefits of Botox in DC?
The benefits of Botox are many; here are just a few!
- A minimally invasive, quick procedure. Botox injections typically take about 5 to 15 minutes, depending on how much Botox you are having injected. The procedure is a small injection, which most patients say they don’t feel. This procedure doesn’t have any downtime afterward and will have extremely fast results.
- Quick results. Within the first 3 days, you should start to see results from your Botox. By the end of the first week, you should see smoother skin.
- Enhances your natural beauty. Botox helps bring back a smoother, more youthful appearance to help highlight and enhance your natural beauty!
- Lasting Results. Botox can be a great investment, lasting up to 8 months for some patients!
Does Botox hurt?
The botox injection is like a small prick, and many patients say they don’t really feel the injection. One of Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery’s DC Botox patients was asked this question, and they replied:
“BOTOX doesn’t hurt, I really didn’t feel it.”
Another Botox DC reviewer said:
“I’ve been getting Botox from Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery for several years. I love that they ask me so many questions and really have me move my face/forehead before injecting. I’ve gone to places that clearly do the same thing for everyone, but I feel like it comes out perfectly every time here.”
How often should you get Botox?
This really depends on each person! On average, Botox results last about 4-6 months in certain areas; some people burn it off quicker. Most of our Washington, DC BOTOX patients return every 3-4 months. However, some people prefer to go often to keep their face as smooth as possible. If you are unsure, we recommend having a consultation with Dr. Bruno or Dr. Brown so that they can help you figure out how often you should be getting injections.
