Restore Your Smooth, Radiant Skin With Botox Treatments in Washington, DC

Even if you're new to the world of aesthetic medicine, you’ve probably heard of Botox. Because of the simple, non-invasive nature of the treatment and its ability to eliminate signs of aging skin, Botox has become an extremely popular procedure worldwide. If you’re looking to soften dynamic facial wrinkles or prevent new wrinkles from developing, our experienced professionals at Forman Plastic Surgery can provide you with personalized Botox treatment.

What Is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment made with a purified form of botulinum toxin. When this neurotoxin is injected, it safely and temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that are responsible for wrinkles, which prevents them from contracting. This treatment is performed only on the key muscles causing wrinkles to maintain a natural look and range of expression while reducing the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines on the skin.

What Is the Botox Treatment Like?

After you’ve had a private consultation to establish your aesthetic goals and devise a custom treatment plan, the actual Botox procedure is quick, simple, and performed right at our medspa. To begin, your skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream will be applied to your skin in the targeted area. Next, Dr. Forman or one of our nurse injectors will use a fine needle to carefully inject the Botox into your facial muscles. You may feel a slight pinch, but the experience isn’t described as painful.

Who is a Good Candidate for Botox?

Generally, adults who would like to reduce or prevent dynamic facial wrinkles may be good candidates for Botox. To be an ideal candidate for Botox treatment, you should meet the following requirements:

  • Are 18 or older
  • Have mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Aren't pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have no skin rashes or outbreaks in the treatment area

Botox Aftercare?

Botox is often called a “lunch time treatment” because it’s so quick and requires no recovery period. After your Botox procedure, we’ll give you detailed aftercare instructions to ensure that you heal properly and achieve optimal results. You’ll need to avoid rubbing the injection sites for at least 24 hours. It’s also important to stay away from alcohol, steam treatments, direct sun exposure, or strenuous exercise during that period. That said, you should have no problem returning to work and resuming the majority of your normal routine right away after your treatment.
