BOTOX for a Smoother Appearance
If moderate-to-severe lines have begun to form between your eyebrows, on your forehead or around your eyes, our BOTOX treatments in Fairfax, VA, may be right for you. Millions of men and women have turned to BOTOX to achieve a smoother and younger-looking appearance.
How BOTOX Works
Repeated muscle contractions in the face are one of the underlying causes of facial lines. During a BOTOX treatment, small amounts of purified botulinum toxin medication are injected into targeted muscles of the face. The medication allows the facial muscles to relax by blocking nerve impulses. As a result, facial lines are softened and your appearance is rejuvenated.
The treatment lasts approximately 10-15 minutes; the injections are often described as a pinching sensation.
It is important to choose an experienced doctor who is trained in BOTOX injections so you achieve a natural-looking appearance. Dr. Kevin I. Perman provides BOTOX in Fairfax and has extensive training in protecting the delicate tissues surrounding the eyes. He has over 20 years of experience with injectables.
