If you are looking for effective Botox treatment near the Bethesda area, Maia Plastic Surgery near 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 near 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

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
