Dr. Darab Hormozi, MD, PA offers Botox® to the residents of Baltimore, Towson, and the surrounding areas in Maryland.
Botox® is specially designed to reduce the lines and wrinkles that are caused by your facial expressions, specifically in the forehead and brow area. Unlike the signs of aging on other parts of your face, these lines and wrinkles are caused by the contraction of muscles when you frown or respond to stress. Botox® works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles, and once the muscles relax, the lines and wrinkles simply disappear.
Am I a Candidate for Botox® Treatments?
Botox® is an FDA-approved treatment for treating lines and wrinkles on the forehead, brow, and around the eyes and is typically recommended for patients over 18 years old. Botox® may not be right for you if you have the following:
Any medical condition that affects your muscles or nerves
Allergies to the ingredients in Botox®, including botulinum toxin, the active ingredient in Botox®
A history of adverse reactions to botulinum products
Breathing problems, such as asthma and emphysema
A history of facial surgery or plan to have surgery
Botox® may not be recommended if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
What Is the Procedure for Botox® Treatments?
Botox® treatments are minimally invasive procedures that are performed on an outpatient basis and do not require anesthesia. Botox® is injected into certain muscles of your forehead, brow, and eyelid area with a very fine needle, and the entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes. Botox® is a temporary cosmetic treatment that should be repeated every three to four months.
What Is the Recovery After a Botox® Treatment?
Botox® treatments require no downtime – you return to your normal activities immediately after your treatment. Some patients have slight bruising at the site of the injections.
How Much Does Botox® Cost in Baltimore and Towson?
Botox® costs vary by patient, depending on the extent of treatments that are recommended by Dr. Hormozi. We offer FREE private consultations, and you may pay for your treatments by cash or check.
