As we age the texture, elasticity, and integrity of the skin changes. During this process, the features of our face can change which may produce an angry or puzzled appearance, especially in the brow area. A neurotoxin such as Botox® Cosmetic can be injected into the muscles between the eyebrows (glabella) to help alleviate the vertical lines between the brow that lead to this appearance. Relaxing these muscles can lead to a mild elevation of the brow and a softer more rejuvenated appearance. To rejuvenate other areas of the face, Botox® Cosmetic can be used on the forehead, crow’s feet (wrinkles in the temple area), lips (smokers lines), chin dimples, jowls (to help elevate the corner of the lips), and neck (to alleviate neck bands). Our cosmetic surgeons know the anatomy of the eyelid intimately which can lead to safer injections and improved outcomes. Botox® Cosmetic begins to work in 3 days with a maximal effect in 7-10 days. The effects of Botox® Cosmetic can last for approximately 3 to 4 months depending on the amount of Botox® Cosmetic injected and the muscle mass of the area injected. All injections at The Washington Eye Laser & Cosmetic Center are performed by physicians only. There is minimal to no pain with our injection technique. The Cosmetic Center can accommodate walk-in visits for Botox® and/or dermal filler injections. Please contact us for a consultation with our cosmetic surgeons.
