What is BOTOX?
As we begin to age, normal repetitive facial expressions lead to lines and wrinkles that can make us look older and tired. For those looking to smooth and tighten the look of their face, BOTOX at Jubilee Cosmetic Surgery is an option. BOTOX injectable treatments are also becoming popular among patients who wish to delay the development of minor facial wrinkles entirely. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Tsion Berhane is pleased to offer BOTOX injections to patients in Silver Spring, MD.
This injectable treatment helps patients achieve the amazing results they want. BOTOX is a filtered strain of type A botulinum toxin that temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles that allow particular expressions of the upper brow region. The lines that develop from these repeated facial expressions are referred to as “dynamic” because they are the result of muscle movement. Over time, these expression wrinkles stay visible, even if the face is totally relaxed. BOTOX injectable treatments can significantly modify the appearance of these lines by blocking these muscle movements and providing the skin overlying those muscles the ability to even itself naturally.

Ideal Candidates for Botox
During your consultation, Dr. Berhane will determine if BOTOX is right for you. BOTOX injections are used for individuals who wish to soften the look of visible lines and wrinkles on their upper face nonsurgically. BOTOX is often thought of as a preventive anti-aging treatment even if you are younger — keep in mind how often you find yourself making facial expressions. It is an effective, noninvasive treatment if you have obvious forehead wrinkles or frown lines between the brows. It's also a solution for lines that form around the eyes.
Our Injection Technique
BOTOX injectable treatments are available as an outpatient procedure directly at Jubilee Cosmetic Surgery. If it is your first time visiting us in Silver Spring, MD for BOTOX, we may perform the treatment during the same appointment as your consultation with Dr. Berhane. You will be asked to make a number of expressions using the upper face, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, etc., to help us to mark where the injections are best placed. Dr. Berhane most commonly administers BOTOX injections between the brows where the number "11" appears, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and along the forehead. The face will be prepared and BOTOX will be injected under the skin through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress to help decrease swelling, bruising, and discomfort. BOTOX injections typically take about 10 – 15 minutes.
What to Expect after Botox
One advantage of BOTOX Cosmetic is that it requires minimal downtime. Following the procedure, you are generally allowed to resume your typical activities. Dr. Berhane will advise you on whether to temporarily refrain from strenuous activity. The treated sections of the face may be slightly red, bruised, or swollen for a few days, but you should not have any serious or long-lasting side effects. For moderate to severe lines, you will start to notice results in 24 – 48 hours. Usually, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX can be seen. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. You can talk to Dr. Berhane about when to make touch-up appointments at Jubilee Cosmetic Surgery to refresh your results.
How Often Do I Need Injections?
Improvements from BOTOX may be visible for as long as four months. Usually, patients schedule an appointment every season to refresh their results; however, you can come back sooner. If you're getting BOTOX before wrinkles are visible as a proactive measure, you can schedule visits further apart. After hearing your concerns and forming your treatment plan, Dr. Berhane will be able to tell you when you should make your next appointment.
