Our doctors will confer with patients in regard to the ways they would like to restore their youthful appearance. When fine lines, wrinkles, and folds affect the appearance of the facial area, treatments such as Botox are considered. Botox is a cosmetic injectable that has been used for many years for cosmetic enhancement. It works specifically on the muscles of the face. When the muscles contract, they can cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop. By injecting this medication into the muscles of the face, it can smooth these wrinkles and folds over the course of several days, and patients can enjoy the results for several months before reinjection is needed. This treatment is safe, affordable, and attainable. It is no longer a treatment for the Hollywood elite, most adults can enjoy the results of this service.

There are many ways in which this injectable can be used to achieve a more youthful look. Botox is injected into the muscles of the face, so it is best used on areas such as:

The glabellar lines (between the eyebrows)
Forehead folds
Crow’s feet (wrinkles at the corners of the eyes)

There are other medical purposes for which Botox has been used over the years, but our team focuses on the use of Botox for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. We may also utilize it for patients who have been diagnosed with a condition called hyperhidrosis (overactive sweat glands). Botox can be injected into the underarms of these patients to reduce the amount of sweat from the area and help build self-confidence. However, most injections of Botox in our office are for anti-aging benefits.

Who is a candidate for Botox?

Any adult patient who has wrinkles and folds caused by dynamic muscle tension may be considered a proper candidate for Botox injections. Botox is used on both men and women at Dermatology Associates of Northern Virginia. Our practice is equipped with the latest solutions, so if patients are not considered a proper candidate for this treatment, they will have others to choose from. Patients might find that they are better suited for other injectables services such as dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid or collagen stimulators. At times, patients can use a combination of these cosmetic injectables to achieve a beautiful “liquid facelift.” All of these types of injectables can be used together to achieve more desirable results overall when there are several areas of the face that may require treatment.

Is Botox affordable?

Most of our patients find that Botox injections are incredibly affordable, and can ask about the expected cost prior to treatment. We also offer payment plans that can be arranged with our front office team to make these solutions attainable on even the tightest of budgets.
