Do you wish you could smooth away lines and wrinkles from your face?

Have you been contemplating ways to refresh and rejuvenate your appearance? If so, then you may be wondering what options are out Botoxthere that can target and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. One amazing and non-invasive option for smoothing away wrinkles and improving the overall youthfulness of your appearance is Botox. Find out why countless men and women are turning to our Warrenton, VA, board-certified dermatologist Dr. J.C. Caballero for Botox treatment.

How does Botox work?

Botox is applied using very thin needles that contain a purified, medical-grade form of a neurotoxin known as botulinum toxin. Once Botox is injected into specific muscle groups of the face, it temporarily relaxes the muscles and prevents them from contracting. As a result, this lessens the appearance of certain wrinkles and lines and smooths out the skin.

Is Botox safe?

While all treatments come with side effects and potential complications, when Botox is administered by a board-certified dermatologist, such as our Warrenton, VA, skin doctor, you can expect that you are getting a very safe and effective treatment each and every time. There are a lot of Botox parties and spas that offer this service, but not everyone knows how to properly administer this treatment. This is why turning to a board-certified dermatologist is your safest option for beautiful results and to prevent unwanted side effects.

What can Botox do for me?

Botox will target certain wrinkles and lines that have formed as a result of repeated muscle contractions. This includes wrinkles around the forehead and eyebrows, crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), wrinkles around the chin and also laugh lines (lines around the mouth). If you are dealing with any of these issues then Botox may be right for you.

How long does Botox treatment take?

The treatment itself is extremely quick, only taking a few minutes. Of course, if you want us to apply a numbing gel to the area prior to getting Botox then we will need to wait until the gel has taken full effect before administering your treatment. If you choose not to numb the area beforehand, the treatment takes less than 10 minutes.

How long do results last?

This will vary from person to person, but most of the time Botox lasts anywhere from 3 to 4 months. If you love your results, you may also choose to get maintenance injections to refresh your appearance.
