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.”
