Botox® in Virginia Beach, VA
Botox® treatment is perfect for those who are not quite ready for surgical procedures. Botox® is used to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines, and is used mostly in the upper parts of the face. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Bounds, Plastic Surgery of Virginia Beach offers Botox® to the residents of Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News and surrounding communities in Virginia.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is among the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures performed in the United States each year. Introduced and approved for use nearly 25 years ago, the popularity of Botox® for non-invasive cosmetic procedures has soared since it was approved by the FDA for treating frown lines and wrinkles.
How Botox® Works
Botox® works quite simply by blocking the chemical in our bodies that causes muscle contractions. This essentially paralyzes the muscles and keeps them from contracting, resulting in the reduced appearance of skin lines and wrinkles. Most patients begin to notice the results within a few days and the results can last for four to six months.
How is Botox® Administered?
Dr. Bounds will begin the procedure by determining the most advantageous injection sites based on your individual needs. Botox® is injected at the targeted sites and the procedure is complete. The entire treatment usually takes less than 20 minutes.
Recovery after Botox®
Botox® treatment is quick, relatively painless and requires no recovery period. Some patients experience minor headaches and may experience light flu-like symptoms, minor redness or discomfort at the injection site. You may resume your normal activities right away, but Dr. Bounds may recommend that you limit your sun exposure for a few days.
Is Botox® safe?
When used correctly by a properly trained specialist, Botox® is one of the safest and most effective treatments for reducing the appearance of fine facial lines, crows feet and wrinkles. Beware of spas and physicians who are not trained in the use of Botox®, and by all means, avoid “Botox® parties”.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Virginia Beach?
The cost for Botox® treatment is based on the number of units injected per area treated. Different areas of the face require different numbers of units of Botox® to achieve the desired results.
