At the Maryland Center For Arthritis And Regenerative Care, we offer the leading solutions to help you look and feel your very best! Although fine lines and wrinkles are a natural consequence of the aging process, we can help you turn back the hands of time for a more youthful and smoother complexion with Botox®.
As part of the aging process, wrinkles and furrows can develop between the brows, and crow’s feet can appear around the eyes. These age-related imperfections can result in a tired and weary appearance.
Botox is a prescription medicine that can be injected into the affected areas to dramatically improve the look of fine lines and furrows. As derived from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, Botox gives the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. It works by inhibiting the small muscle contractions responsible for your wrinkles and furrows.
Strategically placed Botox injections produce a noticeable reduction in the appearance of frown lines, lines on the bridge of the nose, horizontal lines on the forehead, crow’s feet around the eyes, and bands on the neck. Furthermore, because Botox gets delivered to targeted areas via a series of small injections using micro-fine needles, the discomfort of this in-office procedure is minimal and involves zero downtime.
With Botox, our clients typically see noticeable results in 4-10 days following treatment and improvements that last up to four to six months. And by coming in for periodic treatment, we can help you maintain the aesthetically pleasing effects over time.
In addition to cosmetic applications, Botox can also be used for medical purposes. Botox provides a safe and effective method of care for relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
