About BOTOX

To help turn back the hands of time and to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming on the upper section of the face, Advanced Plastic Surgery Center in Arlington, VA is proud to offer BOTOX to local men and women. This nonsurgical procedure provides gorgeous results and is extremely popular among both men and women. BOTOX can make a big enhancement to dynamic lines and wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the muscles contracting on the upper face. The lines disappear as the face relaxes, but dynamic lines can still exist. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily blocks the movements of the muscle. To correct these dynamic lines, BOTOX is injected to soften the skin. BOTOX is most commonly placed by plastic surgeon Dr. Talal Munasifi between the brows, on the Crow's feet, and along the forehead.

Procedure Technique

BOTOX injections are performed as an outpatient procedure directly at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center. If it is your first time to visit us in Arlington, VA for BOTOX, we may perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Munasifi. You will be asked to make various facial expressions using the upper face, such as squinting, frowning, etc., which will allow us to mark where the injections are to be placed. The skin will be cleansed and BOTOX will be injected through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can request a numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable, but it generally is not necessary. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities almost right away.

What to Expect

After the injection, you can resume your typical activities, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep upright for the first night and to not touch your face, which may accidentally spread the treatment to other areas. The treated areas of the face may be slightly bruised, red, or swollen for a few days, but you will not experience any severe or lasting side effects. In most cases, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results typically last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your injector about how often to schedule touch-up appointments at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center to maintain your results.
