Botox Treatment in Northern Virginia
Do you have wrinkles such as crow’s feet lines, worry lines, or laugh lines? Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to relax them and visibly smooth these types of facial wrinkles. Botox can also be used to reduce migraine headaches, lessen excessive sweating, or even to treat TMJ disorder.
For years, millions of people have gone to plastic surgeons and dermatologists for Botox treatments. Many people are surprised to learn you can also receive Botox at our offices in Annandale, Manassas, and Woodbridge, VA.
How does Botox work?
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The muscle that received Botox can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
What is involved in a Botox procedure?
Getting Botox only takes a few minutes. The oral surgeon will use a small needle to inject the Botox into specific muscles. The procedure is very comfortable and doesn’t require any anesthesia.
How long does a Botox injection last?
The effects from Botox typically last between three to six months. As the muscles start contracting again, the lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear and will need to be treated again.
