Best Botox in Chevy Chase, MD
Botox has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures over the past decade. With so many practices offering Botox in Maryland and Washington, DC, patients find it difficult to decide where to go.
Allergan–the company that makes Botox–stresses the fact that each patient should be prepared to ask certain questions when consulting a medical professional regarding Botox.
Does the medical professional you are trusting with administering your Botox have expertise in facial anatomy? Is that person licensed and trained in a field of aesthetic medicine, such as dermatology?
Dr. Tina B. West, founder of The West Institute, is a leading expert in cosmetic dermatology, laser surgery and body contouring procedures.
Dr. West has served as a consultant and injectable trainer for Allergan and Galderma, training other physicians in advanced treatment techniques using Dysport and Botox. She participated in the original phase III FDA clinical trials for the approval of Botox Cosmetic.
How many years of experience a person has injecting Botox is also important.
Dr. West has been in practice since 1996 and is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery.
As a Board-Certified Dermatologist with a state-of-the-art cosmetic, laser and body contouring practice, Dr. Tina B. West’s mission is to provide patients with healthy, attractive skin for life.
With her “Skip the Scalpel” philosophy, Dr. West utilizes the most advanced minimally invasive technology to maintain the health and appearance of the skin of the face and body in women and men for life.
The lines and wrinkles created by repeated muscle movement over years are often among the first aging changes that people notice, and are among the easiest to treat.
Botox is a quick, easy procedure with virtually no risk of bruising when performed by an experienced injector.
Botox can also be used to help lift downturned mouth corners, to erase chin dimpling and to smooth the neck.
Patients often start with Botox treatments in their late 20’s to 30’s when they start to notice lines between the eyes, across the forehead or in the crow’s feet area when they aren’t smiling, squinting or frowning.
Early use of Botox, before lines are “etched” in the skin, can prevent wrinkles from forming (“prejuvenation”).
