Botox® injections result in the temporary relaxation of muscles that cause frown lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes. Dr. Bryan Ambro and Dr. James Chappell have specialized knowledge of facial anatomy and understand how the muscles function around the eyes. This experience enables them to deliver precise treatment for Botox and other cosmetic injectables.
Botox® Injection – What To Expect
Botox injections are performed in our outpatient treatment center at Luminis Health Anne Arundel Medical Center in Annapolis, MD. We want you to feel as comfortable as possible during treatment. In some cases, the plastic surgeon may use an anesthetic cream to numb the treatment area.
The active ingredient in Botox is botulinum toxin. Small amounts are injected into specific areas along the forehead and brows to selectively weaken the muscles and smooth away wrinkles. Botox does not cause numbness, just relaxation. Gradually, the muscles will regain function. Results of Botox injection typically last up to three or four months.
After treatment, you may experience temporary bruising, swelling or soreness in the injection sites. These side effects typically last no more than one to two days.

Dr. Ambro has an unparalleled bedside manner with his patients and it is evident that he is adored and revered by his peers, staff, and patients alike. His attention to detail is uncanny. Dr. Ambro brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table that is equally matched by humility and character. He makes each patient feel as though he/she is his ONLY patient and is attentive to concerns and questions. He anticipates patient’s apprehensions and is well prepared for discussions. His pre-operative and post-operative instructions are well outlined and are among the most thorough I have seen throughout my education and career. He is truly a jack-of-all-trades and a MASTER of them all. He is your “go-to” for everything above the clavicles and offers a multitude of non-surgical rejuvenation treatments including, but not limited to laser services, fillers, and Botox with dramatic, yet natural results.
Dr. Chappell is an integral part of the team and focuses on breast augmentation and reconstruction, as well as, body contouring and minimally invasive body sculpting among other procedures. As a student observing many consults and interactions with patients, I was very impressed with Dr. Chappell’s ability to navigate sensitive subjects. He spends adequate time with each patient addressing each unique concern and makes a stressful experience a very pleasurable one. It is not always easy to converse about ones “defects”, yet he does so gracefully and with humility. Dr. Chappell is very amicable and went out of his way to welcome me and make me feel as though I was part of the team. I have met students with whom he has worked and my experience was echoed. On a final note, I was very impressed with Dr. Chappell’s drive to learn new information. His desk was filled with articles, journals, and notes about new procedures and new developments in his field of medicine. He is well informed and stays ahead of the times. He will not disappoint!
