Age-Defying

Botox Treatments

BOTOX Cosmetic is the most popular injectable cosmetic treatment on the market today.

Years of squinting and frowning tend to leave deep wrinkles in the skin. On many people, frown lines produce an angry or sad look that detracts from a pleasant facial appearance. Simple injections such as BOTOX® from Chesapeake Laser and Skin Care Center will improve these lines without surgery and without scars.

At Chesapeake Laser and Skin Care Center, we are extremely skilled and deliver the best Botox in Queen Anne’s County to prevent early signs of aging, as well as to treat a variety of immediate concerns, including:

  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows and on the bridge of the nose
  • Squint lines or crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Platysmal muscle bands (vertical lines) often visible on the neck
  • Lower facial muscles such as the masseter muscle (to lessen the squareness and fullness of the lateral jawline), wrinkles around the mouth, and turning down at the corners of the mouth.

Botox Treatments:
When Should You Start?

The effects of aging on facial skin appear at various times, based upon genetics, ethnicity, and environmental factors such as wind, cold weather, and sun exposure. As a general rule, if you begin to see lines and wrinkles that are visible when your facial muscles are relaxed, it is probably time to start Botox treatments. For some, this may be as early as the mid-20s, while for others, the lines and wrinkles become evident in the mid to late 30s.

Botox Treatments

as a Preventative Measure

Women typically want to keep the facial skin firm, supple, and free from wrinkles, creases, and lines for as long as they can. Botox treatments are becoming more popular with younger patients who have treatments as a preventative measure to maintain unlined, youthful facial skin for longer. Botox treatments work to inhibit the motion of the underlying muscles that produce the constant facial contractions, such as squinting, frowning, or creasing the brow while concentrating.
Warding off Wrinkles, Creases, and Lines with Botox:
Once the muscle motions are inhibited with Botox, the skin no longer creases, and can remain smooth and unlined for far longer. Women as young as twenty-five are choosing Botox treatments to prevent the development of lines and wrinkles. Those who have had extensive sun exposure, such as skiers, boaters, or swimmers, will be more likely to develop wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin earlier in life, and may be appropriate candidates for treatments in their mid-twenties.
Most people start seeing the signs of facial aging in the mid-30s to the mid-40s. Women with fair skin should consider starting treatments between the ages of 30 and 40. Those with darker skin tones may not see the development of lines and wrinkles until the mid-40s, but each person is different in skin quality and lifestyle, so this decision should be made after an evaluation of your facial skin condition. Most people will see a significant improvement by starting Botox treatments in their 30s.
Many types of spas offer Botox treatments, but the skills with which the product is injected could not be more important in the results. You want to look refreshed, natural, and youthful, rather than being left with a frozen or uneven result. We urge you to connect with our team about our delivery of Botox in Queen Anne’s County area to have your facial skin quality evaluated, and talk with us about starting your Botox treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Botox work?

When injected into muscles, relaxes them from motion for a period of time. When used cosmetically to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it does so by temporarily blocking the nerve activity in the muscles surrounding the wrinkle, preventing the muscle from forming the motion that created the wrinkle or crease. The result is a smoother, wrinkle-free skin surface.

What is Botox made of?

Botox is a prescription drug called OnabotulinumtoxinA. It is a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria strain of Clostridium botulinum. It is FDA approved for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles and lines and is completely safe.

Is Botox a wrinkle filler?

No, Botox only prevents the muscles from forming the wrinkle in the skin. Facial fillers such as Juvederm or Restylane are a different type of injection in which an injectable gel is gently injected inside the wrinkle area, filling in the wrinkle by plumping up the skin and making the wrinkle disappear. BOTOX and facial fillers work together; the filler fills in the wrinkle while the BOTOX keeps the wrinkle from reforming.

Will Botox results show right away?

No. Patients that receive BOTOX injections start noticing a difference in their facial muscles about two to seven days after the injections. Full effect of the BOTOX injection can take up to two weeks.

Is Botox permanent?

Botox is a temporary treatment that keeps certain facial muscles in a relaxed state. This prevents them from contracting and reduces your wrinkles. When you begin your Botox treatment, before the lines become too deep, you can prevent getting permanent wrinkles. However, your results are not permanent and you must repeat your Botox treatment every 3 to 6 months. For a permanent solution to your forehead wrinkles, you could opt for a brow lift instead. Your surgeon can use this surgery to sculpt the underlying muscles in a manner that eliminates the use of Botox.

How often do I need Botox injections?

Typically, when you begin neurotoxin injections at our medical spa, you will need to repeat the process every three to four months. Patients report that with repeated injections they can go longer in between treatments. Some patients have their neurotoxin injections once per year because they have been getting this highly effective wrinkle treatment on a regular basis.
