Available at the Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery located in Virginia Beach (just minutes from Chesapeake and Norfolk), Botox injections temporarily relaxes crow's feet, frown lines, forehead lines, and other types of facial wrinkles. Botox injections are both non-surgical and minimally invasive. The BOTOX Cosmetic solution is an FDA-approved treatment options that safely relaxes specific muscles in the face that cause facial wrinkles. A BOTOX injection usually lasts up to three months and injections can be repeated as necessary when facial wrinkles reappear.
Dr. Choe's technique involves small amounts of BOTOX Cosmetic in specific areas of the face. Almost no redness or swelling occurs following a BOTOX injection. No anesthesia is required and the entire procedure takes no more than 10 minutes.
After visiting our Virginia Beach plastic surgery office for a BOTOX cosmetic treatment, patients may immediately return to work and resume most of activities. We advise no workouts for 4 hours after the treatment. The BOTOX injection will gradually take effect in three to five days. It is important that you keep your head elevated (e.g., do not lie down) for approximately four hours after a BOTOX Cosmetic injection. Patients frequently come in from nearby Chesapeake and Norfolk, and are able to drive home immediately following their procedure.
The most common side effects of a BOTOX cosmetic treatment include headache, flu-like symptoms, and nausea. These occur to a very small number of treated patients as a whole. The Choe Center uses only FDA-approved BOTOX Cosmetic, which is manufactured by Allergan.
