Are You Seeing Lines Between Your
Eyebrows That Make You Look Like You Are Perpetually Frowning?


Are crows’ feet showing up at the corner of your eyes? Are there other forehead lines you wish you could eliminate? Botox in Annapolis, MD from Dr. Namita Murthy can result in a more youthful appearance. Call to learn more about this and our other cosmetic injectable treatments.


What Is Botox?


Every facial expression, when done repetitively or frequently, can leave its mark on our faces. We see more frown lines – those vertical ones between our eyes and those horizontal ones on our foreheads. We may also see lines around the mouth. These are often the first signs of aging we notice.

Botox and Other Treatments

When you meet with Dr. Namita Murthy, the two of you will discuss your aesthetic goals.

Although Botox is not a permanent solution, it can be a good alternative to surgical choices. Dr. Murthy will examine your face and skin and discuss the anticipated results of Botox injections. She may discuss other treatments that could be better matched for the improvements you want.

Botox is an excellent solution for smoothing out wrinkles, but it does not tighten the skin. Facelifts, neck lifts, and fat transfer may be better solutions for your concerns. These surgical options also eliminate the need for frequent follow-up treatments. However, for those in their 20s – 40s, Botox may be the ideal choice.


Botox reduces the frown lines in your forehead but can also help with any sagging corners of your mouth and soften lines around your mouth that may have been caused by smoking.

In addition, the injections can be used to reduce the appearance of lines in your neck. Botox is often the choice of older patients who are unhappy with lines and wrinkles. It also can be used as a preventative measure. If you are younger but know that facial wrinkles run in your family, Botox can be a solution for preventing lines from forming in the first place. If you are in Annapolis Botox is available from Dr. Murthy who has a focus on natural results to help you feel more refreshed and confident.

What to Expect During Botox Injections

Prior to any treatment, Dr. Murthy will discuss your hope for your appearance and any other treatments that may help you reach your goals. The Botox injections usually do not require any anesthesia, but a numbing cream may be used. Dr. Murthy will use a small needle to inject Botox into the areas where treatment is needed. The whole procedure takes only a few minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.


What to Expect AFTER BOTOX


Botox treatment results can usually be seen in less than a week and last for three to six months.

There is no downtime and little discomfort. There are few side effects and when they do happen, they are usually mild. You may have a little bruising at the injection site. Some patients report minor headaches. You can have additional treatments and many patients will return every six months or so. Over time, the wrinkles become less pronounced.
