What is BOTOX?
Your wrinkles don't stand a chance against our anti-aging aesthetics treatments with BOTOX injections through FMW MedSpa. Our board-certified family nurse practitioners, Sandra Ferguson and Linette Eke, can offer men and women in the Baltimore, MD area their own BOTOX consultation. You can reduce the presence of unwanted age lines and wrinkles. With BOTOX injections performed conveniently at your home or at an agreed-upon location, you can benefit from this aesthetic service. An injection of a filtered strain of type A botulinum toxin, BOTOX can temporarily stop your targeted facial muscles from contracting. Your skin will look and feel smoother without the creases made from repeated muscle contractions. BOTOX injectable treatments can also dramatically delay the development of your wrinkles by preventing these facial expressions from appearing.

With the fluctuating weight loss and gain, I couldn't move the needle on my own to get to my weight goal. With Sandra help, I was able to get to my weight goal and maintain the weight.

Am I a Candidate for BOTOX?
BOTOX injections are applied to the facial muscles in the brow and mid-face for patients who hope to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles in these areas nonsurgically. In addition, BOTOX is used as a preventive treatment, even if wrinkles have not yet formed. If you think you do not need preventive treatments, just ask yourself how often you are making facial expressions. All the time, right? BOTOX is a safe, noninvasive approach to preventing or smoothing your unwanted forehead wrinkles or noticeable furrows between your brows. It's also a great solution for Crow's feet around your eyes. If you have deeper lines, a filler product may be recommended.
Our BOTOX Injection Technique
We may perform the injection within the same appointment as your initial consultation. You will be asked to make a few facial expressions using the upper face, like squinting, frowning, etc., to allow us to see where the injections are best placed. BOTOX injections are most commonly placed between the eyebrows, around the eyes (Crow's feet), and along the forehead. Your skin will be prepared, and BOTOX will be applied through a fine needle, followed by a cold compress. BOTOX injections typically take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can return to your usual routine almost immediately. We do advise that really strenuous exercise should be skipped for at least a day. The injected sections of your face can be slightly bruised, swollen, or red for a couple of days, but you should not develop any serious or lasting side effects. It often takes 5 – 7 days before the BOTOX visibly works, and then the results can last 3 – 4 months. You should speak to your BOTOX injector about how often you will need to schedule a maintenance injection appointment at FMW MedSpa to extend your results.
BOTOX Frequently Asked Questions
How much do BOTOX injections cost?
Your cost for BOTOX injections will depend on how much product is used by the unit. The number of units needed will vary based on your goals. In your consultation, we will create your personal treatment plan, and then we can estimate your costs. BOTOX can produce wonderful results when injected by an experienced injector.
What is the difference between a wrinkle relaxer and a filler injection?
Wrinkle relaxers (like BOTOX) and wrinkle fillers (like JUVÉDERM) are both treatments that reduce wrinkles and smooth fine lines. BOTOX works by relaxing overused muscles in your face that cause wrinkles, like frown lines (which appear between the eyebrows), Crow's feet (in the outer edges of the eyes), smile lines, and forehead wrinkles. Wrinkle fillers just increase the volume below the skin to plump hollow areas and decrease wrinkles.
Is BOTOX safe?
One of the most requested cosmetic treatments on the market today, BOTOX is safe and has earned approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). When administered correctly, BOTOX rarely causes medical complications. With that said, it is important to select an experienced injector. Over injecting BOTOX can bring about less than desirable results. Your FMW MedSpa BOTOX injector will supply you with the right dose. Through these injections, we can safely freeze your muscles that cause wrinkles without affecting nearby muscles. Along with its cosmetic uses, BOTOX is also used as a treatment for medical issues, such as hyperhidrosis, facial pain, excessive blinking, and/or spasms.
