Sometimes it can feel as though the visible lines on your forehead and around your eyes are adding years to your age. Who wouldn’t love a more youthful, fresh-faced appearance? Now, you can soften these lines and restore your naturally glowing looks with Botox®. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers Botox® for men and women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.

What Exactly is Botox®?

Botox® is a cosmetic injectable treatment that works by softening those pesky lines and smoothing out those irritating wrinkles on your forehead and around your eyes, resulting in a smoother, more naturally youthful look. 

The procedure works its magic by temporarily relaxing the muscles that tend to pinch the skin and cause those annoying creases.

Might I Be the Ideal Candidate for Botox®?

You might very well be a perfect candidate for Botox® if you have:

  • Frown lines in the middle of your forehead
  • “Crow’s feet” lines appearing around your eyes
  • Vertical lines between your eyes

What Are Some of the Benefits of Botox®?

Our Richmond BOTOX patients tend to love the treatment because it:

  • Doesn’t involve any recovery downtime
  • Has you looking fresher and younger within days
  • Effectively smooths out lines on your forehead, between your eyes, and in the corners of your eyes
  • Doesn’t require any follow-up treatment for several months

What Should I Make Sure to Do Before Having My Botox® Treatment?

Before you come in for your treatment, you’ll want to set up a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. We’ll work closely with you to determine whether or not Botox® is the best anti-aging option for you, and go over everything you’ll need to know before your procedure, so you can feel completely safe and totally comfortable.

What Should I Expect During My Botox® Treatment?

Botox® is administered using a very fine needle. The majority of our patients don’t have a problem with the injections, but we’re always happy to apply a topical numbing agent if that might make you feel more comfortable.

Multiple injections will be made along the muscles in your forehead and around your eyes.

You may notice some “pinpoint” bleeding, bruising, and perhaps some tenderness around the injection sites, but these symptoms tend to be mild and usually only last between 24 to 48 hours.
