Growing up, our mothers warned us that if we made faces long enough they would stick that way. Little did we know there was some truth to that statement. Over time, our overactive facial expressions lead to deep lines and wrinkles on the face.  Fortunately, a little beauty secret, better known as BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes mild, moderate, and even deep lines on our face, leaving us with a refreshed, youthful appearance so you will no longer hear questions such as “are you upset?” or “why the long face?”

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and natural, purified protein. When BOTOX® is injected into a muscle, the muscle relaxes and overlying facial wrinkles will soften.  Additionally, where muscles pull down the eyebrows, BOTOX® injections allow the brows to elevate. This is commonly referred to as a “chemical brow lift.” At Parva Plastic Surgery in Northern Virginia, with our advanced injection techniques, we map the face and administer the appropriate doses of BOTOX® for your specific facial muscle requirements to give you optimal results.

This 35 year-old young lady is seen demonstrating extreme muscle activity when actively lifting her brows, which also results in the lines that form across the forehead. One month after receiving 16 units of Botox, her forehead is smooth and relaxed.

Where is BOTOX® used?

*The FDA has approved BOTOX® for glabellar lines (furrows between the brows.)
Additional injections sites are considered “off-label.”

What can I expect during a BOTOX® consultation?

During your complimentary consultation at Parva Plastic Surgery, we take pride in defining your individual needs and cosmetic goals. Through mapping of the face, we will determine your facial muscular movements that cause noticeable lines and wrinkles, directing accurate dosing of BOTOX® and advanced placement necessary to accomplish a precise aesthetic outcome.

What can I expect during a BOTOX® treatment?

We will focus on learning about your individual needs and cosmetic goals. We strive to provide a comfortable treatment lasting 15 minutes or less. Appropriate doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered directly into the overactive muscles that cause dynamic lines and wrinkles to form, giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Throughout the process, you will feel confident and well informed about your treatment.

What can I expect after BOTOX® injections?

Unlike surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic is fast, simple and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. This non-surgical cosmetic enhancement has minimal and/or brief discomfort. Once the injection is complete, there is usually no discomfort. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment.  It is advised to refrain from heavy workouts for 24 hours and avoid massage or manipulation of the injected areas for 24 hours as well. Muscle relaxation of BOTOX® may take up to 2 weeks to take effect, however our patients often report looking more natural and relaxed within a few days. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic generally last 3-4 months.
