BOTOX® is a cosmetic prescription medicine known as a “muscle relaxer” that is injected into muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. It is often used by celebrities to maintain smooth and wrinkle-free skin, but due to its affordability, you too can benefit from its instant and effective results. Here at our medical day spa, Botox® therapy is administered by licensed medical spa professionals to assure our Maryland, D.C., and Virginia clients have a safe and effective experience.

How Does it Work?
As we age, wrinkles or lines begin to form on the forehead, especially in the area between the eye brows. When Botox® is injected into these areas, it relaxes the muscles in the skin that cause these wrinkles. Furthermore, after these muscles are weakened, the patient breaks the habit of creasing and using those muscles which further prevents wrinkles from forming.
Botox® Treatment and Duration?
After being evaluated, the entire procedure lasts about 10 minutes. The doctor will administer several small injections of Botox® to the targeted area. There is very little discomfort associated with the injections, although sometimes the doctor may choose to numb the area prior to treatment. Results are apparent almost immediately, and typicaly last up to four months. Unlike surgery, there is no downtime or recovery period.
Botox® Versus Dysport®?
Botox® and Dysport® are chemically similar and deliver comparable results; however, Botox has been studied and tested longer. In addition, Botox® is clinically stronger and therefore the required effective dosage is lower. These are a few of the reasons why our medical spa professionals offer only Botox®.
