Botox®, Dysport, and Xeomin
Today, patients now have a fast and effective treatment for the lines and wrinkles that commonly develop near the forehead, brows, and eyes. Known as "expression lines," these wrinkles are the result of years of muscle contraction from common facial expressions like squinting, frowning, and smiling. Baltimore Botox patients can receive a series of injections at one of our practices to soften or eliminate these deep wrinkles in just a matter of minutes.
Essentially, Botox works by reducing the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. When injected directly into facial muscles, it blocks the nerve signals that cause those muscles to contract. The targeted muscles gradually relax, and lines, furrows, and creases fade or disappear altogether. This cosmetic procedure is a short acting, but long term wrinkle prevention treatment.
This treatment at our practice is a relatively simple process. The injections are quick and only slightly uncomfortable. The injections can be completed in approcimately 10 minutes and there is no recovery time. Patients leave the office immediately. Allergy testing is not required.
