If you are looking for effective Botox treatment in the Bethesda area, Maia Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, MD is the answer. One of the most requested cosmetic treatments are Botox® injections. Botox is a neuromodulator, or neurotoxin, that is a safe and effective treatment to relax or weaken muscle contractions. As a cosmetic treatment, Botox can smooth away dynamic lines or wrinkles, as well as achieve many other facial effects. At Maia Plastic Surgery, Dr. Maia offers Botox injections as one of our cosmetic treatments at our clinic in Chevy Chase, MD near Bethesda.

Botox was approved by the FDA as a treatment for frown lines in 2002. It paralyzes or weakens the targeted muscles of the face and reduces facial wrinkles. Common areas treated with Botox for dynamic lines include frown lines, crow’s feet, nose bunny lines, chin dimples and creases on the forehead. Botox can also be used to create other facial effects, including a non-surgical brow lift or masseter reduction. The effects of Botox are temporary, but some treatments can have long-lasting changes to the skin and facial shape.

Safe and Effective Botox Treatment

Botox injections are safe and effective for cosmetic treatment of many different facial issues. Most Botox treatments require multiple injections to target the desired muscles. Like any injection, there can be slight swelling or bruising at the spot of injection. Botox treatment usually requires 2-3 days to begin noticing results and the muscle-relaxing effects can last up to four months. Treatments are well-tolerated, and the dosage can be adjusted to achieve the desired result for each patient. Some of the various uses of Botox by Dr. Maia include:

  • Treatment of facial wrinkles
  • Treatment of migraines
  • Reduction of underarm sweating
  • Treatment of teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Micro-Botox or mesobotox
  • Baby Botox for first time patients
  • Skin treatments with microinfusion of neuromodulator and fillers using a microneedling system

Kerri L.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

Justine A.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
