What is BOTOX?

Anytime you look at yourself in a mirror, do you groan at the sight of wrinkles or fine lines on your brow area and around your eyes? Often called dynamic lines and wrinkles, these skin issues develop from repeated facial expressions — squinting, frowning, laughing, and smiling. As we mature, these lines and wrinkles eventually remain and can make us look fatigued and "older." Thanks to BOTOX treatments at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa, we can help you temporarily diminish the appearance of moderate to severe horizontal forehead creases, frown lines, and Crow's feet. Derived from a specialized type A strain of botulinum toxin, BOTOX functions to temporarily relax the muscles that create those contractions, letting the skin recover over time. Plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Karen is proud to perform BOTOX injections as a nonsurgical cosmetic solution to help men and women attain a younger-looking, refreshed result. Our team welcomes you to reach out to our Winchester, VA office to further explore the benefits of BOTOX and how it can help you look as young as you feel!


What Can I Expect from My BOTOX Treatment?

At the start of your appointment at Exclusively Faces Cosmetic Surgery and Medispa, Dr. Karen will perform an aesthetic analysis to designate which areas of your face would benefit from BOTOX treatment. From there, the BOTOX will be placed into the problem areas of your forehead or face using a small syringe. BOTOX takes about ten minutes to administer, and most patients experience only slight discomfort (such as a pinching or pinprick feeling). At the end of your visit, you are welcome to leave our facility and get right back to your normal routine. It is common to notice some minor redness, bruising, and swelling in the treatment sites, but these symptoms shouldn't persist. Our aesthetic team may recommend that you refrain from rigorous exercise and not touch the treated areas of your face for the next day or so. Over the next 2 – 3 days, you should start to experience your aesthetic results. BOTOX injections may deliver up to four months of natural-looking, youthful enhancements for most patients. Dr. Karen will recommend how often you should undergo treatments to help you maintain your desired look. Depending on the number of units administered, BOTOX is a relatively quick, inexpensive, and virtually pain-free way for men and women in Shenandoah Valley and surrounding areas to get the youthful look they desire.

Can BOTOX help with a gummy smile?

If you don't like how your smile looks because you think too much of your gums show, BOTOX has a little-known trick of helping you create a smile that you may find more aesthetically appealing. So what exactly is a gummy smile? Well, if you have a gummy smile or have seen one, you know exactly what it is: a smile that simply exposes a lot of your upper gums. This can be caused by several things:

  • Long or enlarged gum tissue (gingival hypertrophy)
  • Extra or excessive growth of the upper jaw
  • A short or hyperactive upper lip
  • Small upper teeth

So how does BOTOX help with a gummy smile? BOTOX can be injected into the muscles above and around the upper lip. This relaxes the muscles — so the lip doesn't come up as high when you smile to help your upper gums remain covered — meaning no more gummy smile. If this is a concern for you, talk to Dr. Karen about a BOTOX treatment for gummy smiles.



How many BOTOX injections will I need?

The number of BOTOX injections given will differ according to individual goals and the severity and depth of your wrinkles. Dr. Karen can determine the correct number of BOTOX injections based on your cosmetic outcomes and whether you prefer to address the Crow's feet, brow area, or forehead. To maintain your cosmetic outcomes, our experts could recommend scheduling BOTOX every few months at Exclusively Faces.

Can I combine BOTOX with other aesthetic procedures?

BOTOX generally pairs well with other nonsurgical services at Exclusively Faces for individuals who would like to minimize signs of aging. If you notice deeper and more extensive facial wrinkles and lines, our practitioners might recommend adding a dermal filler to help you achieve maximum results. To further enhance your younger-looking radiant glow, Dr. Karen might perform additional treatments, like facials or PRP with microneedling.

What's the difference between dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers?

While wrinkle relaxers, like BOTOX, are used to diminish fine lines by temporarily preventing your muscle movements, dermal fillers are a distinct collection of cosmetic formulations that enhance facial volume. Fillers are designed to volumize gaunt-looking features and reduce static wrinkles. Dr. Karen can determine whether you could benefit from a filler (like Restylane® or JUVÉDERM®) to further enhance your BOTOX results.
