Botox Cosmetic, also known as Botulinum Type A, is a non-surgical injectable treatment for moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox acts as a muscle relaxant on the targeted area, smoothing out lines and preventing wrinkles from worsening without altering the patient’s natural appearance. The certified dermatologists at Maryland Laser Skin & Vein Institute specialize in anti-aging treatments and can prescribe the appropriate treatment based on the individual patient’s needs. MDLSV has been a Botox National Teaching Center since 2002 and our dermatologists are very experienced in Botox Cosmetic injections.

Botox has been used in over 11 million people in the United States and is effective for both men and women.  While 94% of Botox patients in the U.S. are women, Botox is the most popular minimally-invasive physician-administered aesthetic procedure for males in the United States.

Botox can treat aging found in several areas of the face, including frown lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, and other areas around the mouth, nose, and eyes.  Schedule a consultation with one of our dermatologists to discuss your aging concerns and find out the best treatment options for your problem areas.
