One of the most common complaints of new patients of Dr. Porter’s is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. Often these types of wrinkles are the first to appear on young faces. This is often the condition that brings men and women alike into our Washington, D.C. plastic surgery center for their first cosmetic treatment.

If you are just starting to see crow’s feet forming near the outer corners of your eyes, fine lines around the corners of your mouth or wrinkles forming between your eyebrows where they furrow – this is the perfect time to try Botox Cosmetic.

Botox Cosmetic is an FDA approved liquid that is injected into targeted facial muscles to prevent the formation of wrinkles. Botox does not fill your skin or eliminate the appearance of existing wrinkles but it does prevent new wrinkles from ever forming.

The substance works by paralyzing the small muscles that it is injected into. This prevents the muscles from moving as your facial expressions change, and therefore prevents wrinkles from forming in wrinkle-prone areas. Botox is most commonly used between the eyebrows.

Although a temporary treatment, you’ll notice the full effects of your Botox treatment within a week of receiving injections and the results should last between 4 and 6 months.

Don’t let your newly forming wrinkles go unaddressed. Fight the signs of aging at an early age with Botox Cosmetic and Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter. Contact our office in Washington, DC for a consultation.
