Botox Treatment Washington DC
The popularity of Botox continues to rise every year. With over three million recorded Botox treatments performed in the United States last year, there’s no question that Botox has secured its place in every cosmetic physician’s cabinet.
Getting Botox injections in Washington DC is a simple procedure that is performed as an outpatient procedure at our medical spa.
Botox Considerations, Risks and Recovery
You may resume normal activities immediately. One note of caution: Don’t rub or massage the treated areas after the wrinkle treatment because it can cause the Botox to move to another area of your face. If this happens, you could have temporary facial weakness or drooping.
Although generally safe, Botox side effects and complications can include:
- Bruising and pain at the injection site
- Flu-like symptoms
- Temporary facial weakness or drooping
- Very rarely, Botox can spread beyond the wrinkle treatment area and cause botulism-like signs and symptoms such as breathing problems, trouble swallowing, muscle weakness and slurred speech.

What is Botox?
What Can Botox Help With?
Botox can be used as a wrinkle treatment to smooth:
- Frown lines
- Crows feet
- Forehead furrows
- Skin bands on the neck
Botox can be combined with other cosmetic skin procedures such as chemical peels, dermal fillers or microdermabrasion to further improve your results. This combination of therapies can help to prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.
Who Should Consider Botox?
Botox is not recommended if the patient exhibits an infection at the proposed injection site(s) and or has a known hypersensitivity to any Botox preparation. Do not undergo Botox treatment if you are allergic to any of the ingredients or if you have experienced an allergic reaction to another product containing botulinum toxin. Ask your plastic surgeon about the possible side effects of Botox.
Botox won’t fix all types of skin problems. For example, while it can diminish under-eye wrinkles, it can’t repair the damage caused by the sun. Your skin thickness, type, and the degree of wrinkling all play a role in determining the effectiveness of Botox. A top Washington DC plastic surgeon is the best person to evaluate if a Botox treatment is right for you personally.
