An overwhelming amount of men and women in the United States, and in Hampton Roads, VA choose to use injectables to keep their skin and their esteem youthful. These injections are easy to schedule and receive, often over your lunch break and with minimal downtime. Injections from our wrinkle smoothing and volume filling line can help you remain as young as you feel, without surgery.
Smiling, squinting, and frowning can cause wrinkles that only appear when the muscles that cause them are in use. These lines and wrinkles appear between the eyebrows and around the eyes (crow’s feet) as we age – with repeated frowning or smiling and as skin loses its elasticity – over time. Botox Cosmetic treatment does not fill in as do cosmetic fillers that restore lost volume, but rather Botox acts as an intramuscular blocking agent. It blocks the chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract and relaxes them. Botox is one of the many effective anti-aging treatments available today at The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Virginia Beach, VA and is widely used by young as well as our more mature patients – with great results – to help them age more beautifully.

Fortunately, Botox® treatment can help to control this condition by blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. This is an ideal treatment for individuals with excessive under arm sweating who wish to have a drier under arm area.Continue
