If you are unhappy with the way your skin has aged and you want to greatly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical option that can help you look and feel years younger.
While you may have heard rumors about the safety of Botox® Cosmetic, the FDA has approved the treatment when administered correctly.
Our board certified plastic surgeons will safely perform your Botox® Cosmetic procedure with minimal risk and discomfort.
HOW BOTOX® WORKS
Wrinkles are not just skin deep. One factor that contributes to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is the contraction of the underlying muscles. Botox® Cosmetic works by inhibiting the nerve signals that cause those muscles to contract and wrinkle your skin.
Tiny doses of a chemical originally derived naturally from a species of bacteria stop wrinkles at the source by preventing muscle contraction.
In addition to its wrinkle-reducing, anti-aging properties, Botox® Cosmetic is also being used to treat several medical conditions such as headaches, back pain, eye muscle dysfunction, muscle spasms, and excessive sweating.
BENEFITS AND RISKS OF BOTOX® COSMETIC
Treatment with Botox® Cosmetic can produce remarkable results in reducing wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes (crow’s feet). These results usually last between four and six months with little or no side effects.
With smoother, tighter skin, you can look younger and livelier as a result of this quick and easy procedure.
All medical treatments, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, come with some degree of risk. In your complimentary Botox® or facial rejuvenation consultation, our board-certified plastic surgeons will carefully explain any potential complications, side effects, and risks involved.
COMBINING BOTOX® COSMETIC WITH OTHER FACIAL REJUVENATION PROCEDURES
While Botox® alone can provide great results, many patients choose to combine Botox® Cosmetic with other facial rejuvenation procedures.
For example, injectable fillers like Juvéderm® can further reduce fine lines and wrinkles in several areas of the face.
Botox® Cosmetic can also be part of a total facial rejuvenation makeover including skin resurfacing procedures such as Fraxel® re:store, microdermabrasion, or a chemical peel.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM BOTOX® TREATMENT?
Recovery from a Botox® treatment takes around 1-2 days.
HOW MUCH DOES BOTOX® COST?
The cost of Botox® in Reston, VA, at Austin-Weston is $450 for one treatment area and $200 per additional areas.
