"Liquid Facelift - Owings Mills, MD - Dr. Janet Woodyard took her time injecting me with Botox and Restylane. I couldn't even feel the prick of the needle because of the way she prepared my skin before the procedure. To say she took her time is an understatement as she was fully invested in giving me the best result possible. I have always bruised after receiving injections with other Plastic Surgeon but not with Dr. Woodyard. Her skill level and sharp eye place this gifted professional in a league all her own!"- F. / RealSelf / Oct 11, 2013

Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Restylane procedure.
