Get rid of those unwanted facial lines and wrinkles in minutes, and enjoy a more youthful appearance with BOTOX® Cosmetic, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the county, at Jamachi Plastic Surgery & Medi-Spa in Silver Spring, Maryland.

BOTOX®, also known as Botulinum Type A, is derived from a bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. Normally, your brain sends electrical messages to your muscles instructing them to contract and produce movement. With Botos, these electrical messages are blocked–relaxing the muscles and diminishing the overlying wrinkle(s). Dr. Onyewu safely performs Botox by injecting muscles with a fine needle.

The procedure is used to treat forehead lines, frown lines (between the eyebrows), crow’s feet (next to the eyes), smile or laugh lines (around the mouth and eyes) and bands around the neck.

At the cornerstone of Dr. Onyewu’s approach is creating an individualized treatment to meet your specific circumstances and goals. This customized approach will help you achieve the appearance you desire.

The effects of Botox are usually seen within a few days and reach maximum benefits in two weeks. Results usually last three to six months. Although Botox is not a permanent solution to troubling wrinkles, the effects are quite dramatic for many patients.
