Fine lines and wrinkles are part of everyone’s journey. Repeated muscle movements from frowning, brow-raising, and squinting create these dynamic wrinkles. If you find yourself wishing your signs of aging away, your trusted cosmetic surgeons at MD Brothers have the solution for you! We are pleased to offer Botox® to turn back the hands of time and restore your youthful complexion. 

What Is Botox®?

Botox® is a neurotoxin that’s approved by the FDA to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet in adults. The safe and effective “anti-wrinkle” treatment blocks nerve signals, reducing muscle activity in the treated areas. That allows the skin to relax, smoothing away moderate to severe lines and wrinkles and delivering a smoother, brighter, and more youthful complexion. 

What to Expect from the Botox® Procedure? 

Before the procedure:

You will have a consultation with our experienced surgeons at MD Brothers, during which you will discuss your cosmetic goals. We will answer your questions and help you determine whether Botox® is right for you. We will also walk you through the details of the procedure. 

The day before the injection, you will need to refrain from alcohol consumption and avoid certain medications, such as Warfarin and NSAIDs, because these substances may make you more prone to bruising around the injection site. 

During the procedure:

Most people are surprised by how quick and simple the Botox® procedure is and how little it interferes with their day. We use tiny needles to inject the Botox® solution with minimal pain or discomfort. Most treatments are completed in under 30 minutes. You will not need any downtime, so you can return to work or continue your daily activities right away. 

After the procedure:

Do not worry if you notice small red spots, which typically fade away within a few hours. For the first 24 hours, we will advise you to refrain from strenuous exercise and to avoid covering or rubbing the injection site. 

What Results Can You Expect?

You will notice a visible smoothing of your forehead lines, crow’s feet around your eyes, and frown lines between your brows after just a few days following the treatment. The full results are typically apparent in about two weeks. The effects of Botox® last about four months, after which the muscle movements gradually return. You will require touch-up treatments every few months to maintain your beautifully youthful and wrinkle-free complexion.
