Beautiful SkinHow does Botox reduce my unwanted fine lines and wrinkles?

Thanks to its chemical makeup, Botox reacts with the facial muscles after injection and paralyzes them, preventing them from moving. This results in the skin over the muscles relaxing and smoothing out. This process also prevents new folds from forming by preventing the skin from creasing, which, after time, causes new wrinkles.

Am I a good candidate for Botox?

Good candidates for Botox are in good physical health with no allergies to certain medications or chemicals. Additionally, candidates should have realistic expectations for their results.

What to Expect From a Botox Treatment in Herndon, VA

Botox treatments last only about an hour and do not require any downtime for healing. In fact, patients can go back to their daily activities just after their treatment. Prior to your procedure, your doctor will cleanse your facial skin to prepare it for the Botox injections. They may also mark the areas they feel need the most attention. Then, they will use a super-fine needle to inject the Botox into the facial muscles. You may experience a small pinch as the needle enters the skin, but the process should not be painful.
