Did you know that every time you smile, squint or frown, you’re working to create new wrinkles? There are several different causes of wrinkles. One of the most common causes is simply a result of the aging process – over time, your skin loses volume and elasticity, creating an aged appearance. But wrinkles can also be caused by muscle contractions that occur when you do things like laugh, smile, squint, or frown.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most effective treatments for wrinkles caused by facial muscle contractions. In recent years, it has become one of the most popular minimally invasive facial rejuvenation options available. However, it’s not the right treatment for all types of wrinkles.
The best way to determine whether BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you is to speak with Dr. Bruno or Dr. Brown in person. To have your wrinkles evaluated by one of our board certified plastic surgeons and get personalized recommendations, please call 301-969-3036 today to schedule a consultation. Our office serves patients throughout the Washington DC area.
How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains a neurotoxin that temporarily blocks the nerve impulses which cause your facial muscles to contract. As a result, these muscles start to relax and once this happens, the lines they create begin to smooth out.
Dr. Bruno and Dr. Brown can use BOTOX® Cosmetic to treat the following types of wrinkles:
- Crow’s feet (lines around the eyes)
- Horizontal forehead wrinkles
- Vertical lines between the eyebrows
- Lines in the nasolabial folds
The effects of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment are temporary and will only last about 3-4 months. To achieve longer lasting effects, you’ll need to return to our office for follow-up treatments.
Why Choose Chevy Chase Plastic Surgery
While there are many people who offer BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, not all practitioners are equally qualified to perform these injections.

Our board certified plastic surgeons have this extensive knowledge, and they’ve helped thousands of individuals in the Washington DC area experience beautiful facial rejuvenation results using BOTOX® Cosmetic. This experience is crucial to achieving your desired outcome.
