How Botox from your doctors in Herndon, Virginia can help you look great.

When you look at your face in the mirror, do you see a young-looking face, or do you see the early signs of aging? Do you see those annoying fine lines and wrinkles which commonly appear around your eyes, forehead, lips, and cheeks? If you aren’t happy with your skin and want to do something about it, it’s time to consider Botox treatment! Dr. Taraneh Zand and Dr. Reza Golesorkhi at New Leaf Esthetics in Herndon, Virginia can help you look younger and better with Botox treatment.

Botox has been rigorously tested for both safety and effectiveness and has been shown to produce dramatic, beautiful results of smoothing out your skin, making lines and wrinkles less noticeable. It comes as an injectable medication which works by temporarily “freezing” muscles and nerves which cause the wrinkles and lines. After Botox treatment, your skin will appear smoother, younger, and rejuvenated.

As you age, your skin loses moisture, becomes drier, and loses the elasticity it once had. Instead of “snapping back” as it did when you were younger, your skin develops fine lines and wrinkles along the expression lines in your face.

Botox helps to diminish the expression lines in your face, including:

  • At the corners of your eyes, commonly known as crow’s feet
  • Running across your forehead, known as furrows
  • Between your eyebrows, also called glabella
  • At the corners of your lips, known as marionette lines
  • Laugh and smile lines running from your nose to your mouth

Most people tolerate Botox treatment very well, and you can ask for a numbing spray or cream be applied to the skin before treatment if you wish. The amount of injections varies depending on the area treated. Full results will be visible within 2 to 4 days, and you may require maintenance treatments at 4 to 6 month intervals to help you maintain your beautiful results.

Botox can rejuvenate your skin, giving you a more youthful, energetic look. It’s time to say goodbye to those tired-looking fine lines and wrinkles and say hello to a great new look! It’s time to call Dr. Taraneh Zand and Dr. Reza Golesorkhi at New Leaf Esthetics in Herndon, Virginia. Call today!

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.
