BOTOX Treatment

Are you looking to smooth away wrinkles and achieve a refreshed youthful appearance? Look no further than BOTOX®, a trusted and minimally invasive solution for achieving natural-looking results. Explore how Botox can help you regain your confidence and restore a more youthful you.


Understanding BOTOX® – The key to non-surgical facial rejuvenation


BOTOX®, short for botulinum toxin, is a renowned wrinkle-smoothing treatment. Botulinum toxin (Type A, to be exact) works by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for dynamic wrinkles, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines. These non-surgical injections provide subtle yet significant results.


Fine lines and wrinkles occur on our faces as time goes by. If these normal signs of aging are making you lose confidence in your appearance, then BOTOX® Cosmetic may be right for you. BOTOX® is the most popular cosmetic injectable across the world.


Other options include Dysport, Jeuveau or Xeomin.


Dr. Ife Rodney, MD, FAAD of Eternal Dermatology is an expert injector and BOTOX® specialist in Columbia MD. Dr. Rodney and her team provide the best options for customizable cosmetic treatments in Howard County MD, so that you can look and feel your best.

How do I prepare for Botox Cosmetic?

Arrive for your appointment with a clean makeup- free face. Make sure to avoid alcohol or exercise right before and after treatment. Our expert team first takes a look at your medical history, current medications, and your cosmetic goals. Once your medical history checks out, you will be a candidate for Botox. Dr. Rodney will choose the correct type and units of the desired injectable. 

How much Botox do I need?

Based on your preferences, we will be able to tell you exactly how much Botox you’ll need to look your best. The number of units of Botox depends on the location of the injection site. For instance, forehead lines may take 14 units of Botox while frown lines may take as little as 8 units. Other injectables like Juveau or Xeomin may have different units of measurement for the same treatment area. At Eternal Dermatology, we will guide you in the units you will need for incredible results.

Am I a good candidate?

Besides being in good health, your doctor would want to know if you’re allergic to any ingredient in Botox or any botulinum toxin injectable. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be good candidates as well as those with certain pre-existing conditions or infections.

Is Botox safe? Are there side effects of Botox?

With any medical procedure, there are potential side effects. Common side effects include pain, swelling, and bruising. These side effects reduce significantly when the Botox injections are performed by board-certified dermatologist. We are trained not only in the safe use of Botox and its alternatives, but also in the best techniques for beautiful results.

What are the alternatives to Botox?

Botox is the first FDA-approved cosmetic injectable on the market. Over recent years, other options like Xeomin, Juveau, and Dysport came into play. Each of these injectables has the active ingredient botulinum toxin type A, but with different trace proteins. This can make one more effective than another at addressing your specific concerns. 

You may also notice a more immediate change or longer lasting results with one brand. As a cosmetic dermatology expert, Dr. Rodney has the training, sill and experience to determine which brand of botulinum toxin will work best for you. After discussing your skin concerns and goals, Dr. Rodney explains the subtle differences for your aesthetic goals.

Should I choose Botox or Fillers? Can Botox be combined with fillers?

Botox relaxes the muscles of your face  and reduces present and future wrinkles. On the other hand, dermal fillers like Restylane, RHA, Juvederm and Radiesse plump up the skin  and replace lost volume.

Botox and fillers can be combined to improve appearance and effectiveness. Commonly referred to as a ‘liquid facelift,’ multiple areas are treated to transform your overall appearance.

What can I expect after getting BOTOX?

Botox is a quick, outpatient procedure that you can actually complete on your lunch hour. You may experience some redness, pain, slight bruising, or irritation in the treatment areas after your treatment for a couple of hours. It may take as little as 72 hours days to notice the difference in your appearance. In most cases, Botox may last 4-6 months, sometimes longer. After it wears off, you should visit us for touch-ups every six months to a year as needed.

What is a Botox Party?

If it sounds like a gathering involving Botox, you’re right on the money. Botox parties are social gatherings where you can get Botox, often at a discounted price. While this sounds good in theory, it could be risky. In many cases, the person administering the toxin is not a certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. They may use the wrong units in the wrong places, resulting in an uneven appearance or a botched procedure. What’s worse, hosts of these parties may not know what to do if something goes wrong. It’s always wise to have your injectables done by a board-certified dermatologist.
