Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery has proudly served the community of Washington D.C for years, doing our best to aesthetically enrich the lives of its residents. One of the cosmetic concerns that our practice has noticed from our patients is that many of them are bothered by the fine lines and wrinkles that appear on their face, but don’t want to opt for surgical solutions to remove them, because of the recovery time and general discomfort of them.
We are happy to inform these patients that with Botox®, non-surgical wrinkle reduction is an option, and a convenient one at that. With a small injection of the protein Botulinum, we can put a limit to the appearance of wrinkles without leaving you on bedrest for weeks upon weeks.
Wrinkle reduction has become easier than ever with Botox® and we invite you to contact our office in Washington D.C with whatever questions you may have about this treatment. We’ll do our best to answer them and hope that Botox® can be the non-surgical wrinkle reducer for you.
How Does The Treatment Work and What’s Botox® Like For Patients? Botox® non-surgically reduces the appearance of wrinkles through direct injection into the muscle causing them. The amount of Botox® that a patient will need depends on the strength of the muscle they wish to treat. Once the botulinum has been delivered to the muscle by a trained professional, it then begins to limit the contraction of that muscle, putting a non-surgical end to the appearance of wrinkles for a time. The effects of Botox® do diminish over the course of a few months, so multiple sessions may be necessary if a patient wishes to maintain the effects for an extended period of time.
During the procedure itself, you can choose to be treated with some topical creams and mild anesthetics to make the Botox® injection as comfortable as possible. Each individual session will last about fifteen minutes in total, about half the length of your average lunch break.
To make this procedure as available as possible for our potential patients, we offer Tox2GO hours. During these hours, you can just pop in for a treatment session of either Botox® or Dysport, no appointment required.

Is Botox® a Good Option for me as a Patient?
Botox® is meant for healthy adults searching for non-surgical wrinkle reduction. If you’re one of these adults, the safety of Botox® can only be verified for you through a consultation. Your cosmetic goals, current health, and medical history will be the topics of discussion during this consultation. Alternatives will be discussed if the practitioner conducting your consultation discovers a complicating factor that keeps you from getting Botox.
