Botox

Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg can provide you with BOTOX® injections to solve your wrinkles and fine lines. When you are ready, so are we! In fact, we offer BOTOX as low as $11 per unit.

BOTOX is a highly effective, non-surgical anti-aging procedure.

What is BOTOX?

Made by Allergan, BOTOX is an FDA-approved substance which consists of botulinum toxin. It is injected directly into facial muscles to reduce their movement, thus reducing the appearance of:

  • Lines and wrinkles on the forehead
  • Lines and wrinkles between the eyes
  • Crow’s feet

What You Need to Know About BOTOX

BOTOX is the fastest, safest, simplest, and most minimally invasive procedure available, with no down time or recovery necessary. The results are apparent within days and can last up to 6 months.

For some wrinkles and folds, dermal fillers such as Restylane may be preferable. For more extensive wrinkles, a mini facelift, mid facelift, facelift, neck lift, and/or blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) may be your best option.

The board certified plastic surgeons at our fully accredited facility in Northern Virginia have extensive experience with all types of anti-aging treatments. Contact us for a consultation to determine if BOTOX or another cosmetic treatment is best for you.

BOTOX Injections for Hyperhidrosis

BOTOX is also FDA-approved for severe underarm sweating that is inadequately managed with topical agents. BOTOX helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the under arm sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. Read more about BOTOX for hyperhidrosis.

FAQs

Q: What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.

Q: How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

Q: Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy such as Dr. Heppe & Dr. Bautista

Q: Does BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

Q: How long does the treatment take?

Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.

Q: When will I see results?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Q: How long is the recovery time after treatment?

After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.

Q: Do men receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?

Yes. BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic were men. In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow’s feet, male patients comprised approximately 10% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 10% of all cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2014 were on men—that is more than 1 million cosmetic procedures. The number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by 273% from 1997 to 2014.
