Botox in Potomac, MD: Your Solution for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Botox in Potomac, MDIf you’re sick of fine lines and wrinkles, consider botox in Potomac, Maryland

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox was one of the most popular minimally invasive procedures in 2018. Botox can smooth crow’s feet the appearance of wrinkles in your forehead, and reduce the lines in the folds between the nose and lips.

Potomac, MD: Benefits of 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. Benefits of the minimally invasive procedure include:

  • Restored elasticity of vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Smoothing of crow’s feet (lines around the corners of the eyes)
  • Reduction of lines in the folds between the nose and lips
  • Reduced appearance of forehead 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 Potomac

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 such as droopy eyes.

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 with Bruno | Brown: Q&A with a Washington, DC Patient

Botox in Washington, DC: the benefits of going to a Top Plastic Surgeon.Top DC Plastic Surgeons and Botox

We’ve all seen the specials at spas for deals on Botox treatments and wondered what the difference was between the spa treatment and a medical professional. Botox results can turn disastrous if not done by an experienced plastic surgeon. You can end up with tired, droopy eyes or a frozen look.

We interviewed a Bruno | Brown patient about her experience getting Botox at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery versus a med-spa experience.

This patient is a working professional in her early 50s.

Real Life Botox Experience Q&A

Why Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery?
I had gotten Botox done before at a med spa several times. I got a recommendation to go to Bruno | Brown because I had always gone to a med spa and a friend told me, “Why aren’t you going to a plastic surgeon? To someone who actually knows what they’re doing.”

I thought, ‘Oh yeah, that’s probably a better idea.’  The perception in my mind was it was going to be way more expensive, way more. But in reality, the price wasn’t that much more, nearly on par.

When did you see results?
It starts kicking in around day three, full results were in a week.

What did the procedure feel like?
Botox doesn’t hurt, I really didn’t feel it.

How long did the treatment take?
It’s really fast- maybe 10-15 minutes.

Why should I go to a Plastic Surgeon for my Botox Treatment?

When done correctly, Botox can smooth crow’s feet, reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles and the lines in the folds between the nose and lips. However, when someone with limited experience administers Botox, they could possibly make the injections in the wrong spot, too deep, or too low. This can cause unwanted side effects, like a frozen forehead or cause eyelids to droop.

You always want Botox treatments to be given by a trained and experienced medical professional. The doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery are experienced and qualified to perform Botox treatments and will determine what the best methods are to achieve your desired look.

Who Should You Trust for Botox? Why You Should Choose Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery

If you’re looking to reduce wrinkles and smooth fine lines, consider Botox in the Washington, DC area.

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. It is used to help slow down the signs of aging as well as smooth existing skin wrinkles.

What are the Benefits of Botox?

  • Smoothing of crow’s feet (lines around the corners of the eyes)
  • Reduced appearance of forehead wrinkles
  • Restored elasticity of vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Reduction of lines in the folds between the nose and lips

Botox Treatment and Recovery

You may have some minor swelling or pain at the injection site, this usually goes away almost immediately after the initial injection. There is no recovery time for this procedure, and the process usually takes between 10-15 minutes. Results can last between 4-6 months in certain areas. Because the risks are minimal, it’s the perfect option for those who are just starting to look into updating their appearance without having to undergo a major surgical procedure or deal with a long recovery process.

Why You Should Always Choose a Top Plastic Surgeon for Your Botox Treatment

Botox should be administered by a trained and experienced medical professional. Specifically, it should be administered by someone who is knowledgeable and experienced in their field, 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”. Dr. Brown explains further on how he prevents this from happening:

“The tendency to treat fully the forehead lines allows the brow to drop, thereby giving the eyes a tired/droopy and frozen look. I go lighter on the forehead for this very reason; balance it with the elevation from the frown lines and the crow’s feet and it looks more natural.

Although we aim to get a perfect result every time, it’s often better to undercorrect as you can always add more if needed.”

Botox Treatments from Top Plastic Surgeons in DC

If you’re looking for top-rated DC plastic surgeons to reduce your wrinkles, Botox may be right for you.

Top DC Plastic Surgeons and Botox Administration

What is Botox?

In a Botox procedure, small injections of Botox are made into the skin, to smooth lines and prevent wrinkles. While you may be unsure of exactly where you want to have your Botox injections, board-certified and top-rated DC plastic surgeons Drs Bruno and Brown are expertly qualified to determine if Botox injections are right for you to achieve your desired appearance.

What are the Benefits of Botox?

  • Smoothing of crow’s feet (lines around the corners of the eyes)
  • Reduced appearance of forehead wrinkles
  • Restored elasticity of vertical lines between the eyebrows
  • Reduction of lines in the folds between the nose and lips

How Popular is Botox?

According to statistics gathered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2016 alone, over 7 million Botox procedures were performed. This number is up almost 800% from 2000. With the growing popularity of this procedure, there are also a growing number of people offering to perform it. This causes important questions to arise, like who is qualified to administer Botox?

Why We Think Botox is Better from Plastic Sugeons

While you may see regular providers or even spas offering Botox treatment, Botox should be administered by a trained and experienced medical professional. Specifically, it should be administered by someone who is board-certified in their field, such as DC plastic surgeons Drs Bruno and Brown.

Those who have no knowledge of the field of plastic surgery will not be able to administer the Botox injections with the same skill as someone who is board-certified in their field. This could cause complications to arise, which the person administering your Botox may not have the medical knowledge to handle.

Specifically, someone who has limited experience as a medical professional could make the injections too deep, too low or in the wrong spot, and this could cause negative side effects, like a droopy eyelid. Finding a licensed and board-certified plastic surgeon can mitigate your risks and ensure you’re receiving the best care possible.

What Are the Risks and Recovery Time?

While you may experience some minor pain or swelling at the injection site, this usually goes away almost immediately after the initial injections. One RealSelf user describes her experience receiving Botox treatment from a licensed plastic surgeon as, “I had swelling around the injection sites for five minutes, it was totally gone by the time I left the clinic.”

This procedure is great for those looking to reverse the effects of aging and improve their appearance, without undergoing a major surgical procedure. Because the risks are minimal, it’s perfect for those who are just beginning to explore the field of plastic surgery and are still figuring out what results they desire.

There is no recovery time for this procedure, and the whole thing usually takes between 10-15 minutes. The effects can last as long as 4 months, or even longer if follow-up treatments are made.

7 Steps to Having Younger, Healthier Looking Eyes

7 steps to younger eyesIf eyes are the window to anything, it’s our age. From the purely cosmetic to minimally invasive treatments to surgical procedures, here are 7 steps to maintain younger looking eyes:

  1. Full brow lift:Is your forehead sagging? Are your eyebrows heavy? Rejuvenate the overall appearance of your skin by tightening the forehead and reducing the appearance of worry lines giving your facial features a more youthful appearance.
  2. Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery): Do your eyelids droop, giving you an aged effect? Smooth the skin surrounding your eye by lifting the upper or lower eyelid. In this procedure, excess tissue is removed from the eyelid areas for a more youthful look and brightness.
  3. Your Arch Enemy: Aging brows age your entire face! Go for the anti-aging quick fix and get them in shape. Trim, tone and fill for a youthful appearance. If they are thinning, use brow powder to fill in patchy spots. Use a brow pencil to lengthen and color those gray hairs and disappearing tails. The difference will amaze you.
  4. Latisse: As you age your once lush lashes become shorter and sparser. Get long, thick, younger-you-but-better lashes back with Latisse, available here!
  5. Botox: Feel more mademoiselle but looking more madam? Smooth away those crow’s feet with Botox! As board certified surgeons, Drs Bruno and Brown are qualified to determine the best methods to achieve your desired results.
  6. PRP Injections: Had a long day (or month) at work? Nothing gives us away more than under eye bags. Fear not! PRP Injections or Fillers are ready to ride to the rescue. PRP is an injectable treatment that uses your body’s own blood, similar to a blood test, to reverse the signs of aging, restore or enhance facial volume, and improve skin texture and tone.
  7. Fillers: Fillers are an excellent way to get rid of under eye hollows that appear as you age. Fillers restore volume and rejuvenate the area under your eyes and upper cheek.

Have you ever wanted to know more about Botox? In this post Dr. Brown answers the most common questions we get!

Botox-resultsThere’s a lot of misinformation out there about when to use Botox. We’ve heard and seen just about everything. Here, Dr. Brown sits down to answer the most common questions we get about Botox.

Q: When is the best age/time/signals you need to start considering Botox?
A:

As one might expect, people are very expressive, even in their sleep or just talking normally. The best time to start isn’t a specific age, but is when you notice that your expressiveness is leaving small creases in the skin.

It is easier to prevent than to correct, so patients are coming in earlier for preventative maintenance that keeps fine lines and wrinkles at bay for much longer. Coupled with good skin care and protection from environmental damage, the aged appearances of the past are becoming less frequent.

In our practice, most patients are in their 30s to 60s, with the bulk in the 40-55 range; I think it’s trending lower as more people realize it’s easier to prevent than to correct, so patients in their late 20s and early 30s are coming in, but maybe every 6 months instead of every 3-4.

Q: How should a patient consider using Botox in their 20s/30s/40s and so on?
A:

• 20s: It’s more preventative, so consider having it every 4-6 months
• 30s: You’re starting to correct wrinkles that show without moving, and these patients typically need it every 4 months
• 40s: This is more of a combination age, and these patients may need additional correction in the realm of skin care/PRP/etc; maybe having their eyes done and so forth to really help freshen the appearance
• 50s and up: This age starts to err more in the direction of correction (surgery) and Botox is more “icing on the cake” so to speak.

Q: Does it just work on the forehead and crow’s feet?  Or are there other uses to consider?
A:

For me, the vast majority get it between the eyes and on the crow’s feet; next is the forehead and then ancillary areas such as the corners of the mouth, the bunny lines on sides of nose, neck bands and more. If you’re concerned about a particular set of wrinkles you’ve noticed and wonder if Botox is the right treatment, you should set up a consultation to discuss your specific needs.

Q: What gives some people the droopy eye and /or frozen look?  How do you make sure you avoid having that happen?
A:

The tendency to treat fully the forehead lines allows the brow to drop, thereby giving the eyes a tired/droopy and frozen look. I go lighter on the forehead for this very reason; balance it with the elevation from the frown lines and the crow’s feet and it looks more natural.

Although we aim to get a perfect result every time, it’s often better to under correct as you can always add more if needed.

Q: At other med spas we’ve seen it as common practice to do big shots that leave us with a headache and the ‘mosquito bite’ telltale sign.  Can you explain your approach?
A:

Every doctor has their own way but we use one of the smallest needles available and perform more precise injections in the muscle versus larger amounts; while there is always a chance to have a bruise or achy spot, using these techniques coupled with the application of ice minimizes our patients discomfort.

Q: How long do the results last?
A:

Results last about 4-6 months in certain areas, some people burn it off quicker; most patients return every 3-4 months.

We provide Botox to patients in the Washington, DC, Chevy Chase, MD and Norther Virginia area.
