BOTOX® Cosmetic

Wrinkle Relaxer

AVERAGE COST: $200 – $600

BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces wrinkles and lines, giving the skin an even appearance by an injection that temporarily relaxes the muscles beneath the skin.


BOTOX® Cosmetic Overview

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an anti-aging skin rejuvenation procedure at Mountcastle Medical Spa & Laser Center in Northern Virginia that treats facial wrinkles without surgery.

Made under the name Botulinum Toxin Type A, this agent obstructs nerve impulses in the skin and temporarily relaxes the corresponding muscles. This makes the wrinkles shrink in size, resulting in a smoother, younger appearance. More than 6.1 million BOTOX® injections were given in 2012. When done correctly and consistently by our Chief Nurse Amy Hermann, BOTOX® Cosmetic can eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles between the eyebrows and alongside the forehead.

Schedule a Consultation

Administering BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered during an in-office appointment that typically takes about 30 minutes. The depth, length, quantity, and location of wrinkles vary for each patient. Therefore, the injection treatment, including the dosage and injection location, is tailored during the procedure. Patients will be marked for the specific areas on the face that are going to be treated. The injection is given through a syringe to localized areas on the face. Patients will feel a small prick as the needle inserts through the skin, but any pain or discomfort is controlled with a cold compress.

What to Expect

At Mountcastle Plastic Surgery, we strive to make your BOTOX® injections as quick as possible. After a plan has been devised during your initial consultation, the areas to be injected are cleaned with an alcohol swab. Accurate doses of the BOTOX® are carefully administered via a small needle and syringe. The entire process from initial consultation to the conclusion of the BOTOX® injections lasts approximately 15-20 minutes.

Immediately following a series of BOTOX® injections, there will be some mild swelling and redness at the injection site. This will subside a few hours after the procedure. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately, but exercise should be avoided for a few hours. It is also recommended that patients keep their heads elevated for the first 8-10 hours.

Results


Results following BOTOX will become apparent within 4-7 days. About a week after treatment, patients will notice an inability to fully move portions of their forehead. With limited movement, wrinkles will cease to appear. The result is skin that appears smooth and soft.
