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.
