Achieve a Refreshed Appearance with BOTOX® Cosmetic
Frown lines and crow’s feet can contribute to an aged look that compromises self-image. No one is immune to the natural aging process, but there are effective treatments available to help you look as young as you feel. BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most popular and effective treatments for reducing the signs of aging. To help you achieve a rejuvenated and rested look, renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. Roger Oldham can perform a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment at his Bethesda practice. Treatment is fast and comfortable, and can often be performed over a patient's lunch break. To learn more about how BOTOX® Cosmetic can rejuvenate your appearance, contact us today.
About BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into the facial muscles to minimize the signs of aging. It works by impeding the ability of a nerve cell to release a neurotransmitter that causes a muscle to contract. As a result, the muscle and overlying skin remain relaxed, resulting in a refreshed outward appearance. Men and women alike are turning to BOTOX® Cosmetic to achieve facial rejuvenation. In fact, BOTOX® Cosmetic has become the single most frequently performed minimally invasive cosmetic procedure.
What BOTOX® Cosmetic Can Do For You
BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved to treat moderate to severe crow’s feet (wrinkles occurring around the eyes), and frown lines between the eye brows (sometimes called "the 11s"). These facial creases form because of the repeated muscular contractions that control facial expressions. For patients wishing to address deep facial creases and lines in other areas of the face, such as around the nose and mouth, dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM™ may be recommended. We also offer microdermabrasion, laser therapy, and other facial treatments to treat sun damage, acne scars, and other blemishes. Meanwhile, patients often choose to have BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to complement procedures such as face lift surgery for more comprehensive results.
What to Expect during BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a comfortable and very time-efficient treatment, only taking about 5-10 minutes. When necessary, we can provide a mild topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort, though many patients are comfortable undergoing the treatment without it. While you relax in the doctor’s chair, a minute amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into your targeted facial muscles. Patients can be in and out of the office quickly. The treatment involves no downtime, and patients can return immediately to their everyday activities. In fact, many of Dr. Oldham’s patients come in over their lunch break, and return to work right away.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Results
The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic typically last about three to four months. Patients usually need three to four sessions per year to sustain their desired look.
